"Forces ... dormant since long." Or should that be, "Forces ... long since dormant?" Damn this pesky English. Anyway, those are the first words in the trailer for the recently announced return of Capcom's Bionic Commando on next-gen systems. It doesn't take very long to figure out that the game looks like a mix of Capcom's Lost Planet (thawed) and a Spider-Man game.

On the plus side, Lost Planet was fun, if not just a tad on the short side. On the negative side, anything compared to a Spider-Man game automatically has two strikes against it out of the gate. There's still a long way to go before this game makes its debut and hopefully we'll get a better idea about combat in future trailers instead of all this Spidey swinging.
