It's true, Bionic Commando's swinging controls are 'going to be tough' to use

If you believe Capcom's upcoming Bionic Commando (in 3D!) is going to be a one of those pick up and play, easy to master kind of games, we ask, what on Earth gave you that impression? Seriously, flinging your body around the jungle Spider-man style is no easy task and even Capcom admits that it's "going to be tough".

Talking with, Bionic Commando producer Ben Judd agrees that "the second you use the swing mechanic it is both very innovative and cool because of that, but it's also going to be something that requires a little more time to adapt to." Though the learning curve will not go unrewarded as Judd goes on to say "I still believe that once you master it, you're going to feel like the ultimate badass and you're going to really like that part of it. But it's just going to take more patience ..."

Don't worry Mr. Judd, we'll give the game the time it needs to get the hang of the controls before we praise or disgrace its gaming existence. All because we care. Watch the full interview above to learn more about Bionic Commando's controls, locations and what goodies are unlocked when gamers own both it and its XBLA cousin Bionic Commando Rearmed.
