Arm yourself! The 20
year wait is over as Bionic Commando swings back into
action on Xbox 360®, PLAYSTATION®3 and PC.
The first true sequel
to the classic 1988 Nintendo Entertainment System original, Bionic
Commando sees the return of the bionically-enhanced Nathan
"Rad" Spencer, voiced by Mike Patton, the former lead
singer of Faith No More. Time has not been kind to Spencer: 10
years after his heroic defeat of the Imperials in the original
game, he has been betrayed by the government he swore to serve,
imprisoned for crimes he didn't commit, and sentenced to death.
On the very day of
Spencer's execution, terrorists detonate a massive experimental
weapon in Ascension City, unleashing an intense earthquake that
has turned the city into rubble and wiped out its population. With
the terrain in ruins and the city's air defense grid now in the
control of a massive terrorist force whose goal remains unclear,
the FSA have only one option left - a behind-the-lines assault.
The perfect job for a Bionic Commando.
