Super Joe has been captured during his attempt to stop the secret Abatros (sic) plan, and in Bionic Commando it's up to you to save him. What makes this game unique is that it's impossible to jump, so vertical movement can only be achieved through the use of your grappling hook arm. It's difficult at first but eventually becomes second nature. This unorthodox control scheme, combined with one-hit deaths, rewards stealth and careful movement. A compelling storyline, great graphics and a memorable soundtrack cement its place in the NES pantheon of excellent games. Interestingly, the Japanese version was called Top Secret: Hitler's Revival and featured neo-Nazis as enemies and Adolf Hitler as the final boss. ~ Skyler Miller, All Game Guide
