Enemies


It's rather amazing how many different enemies Bionic Commando has. Most games of this age have a few different enemies who have primitive attack routines, but Bionic Commando has many detailed and specific enemies, some with fairly complex AIs. Remember that there are more things that can hurt you then just the enemies. There are plenty of hazards in the game as well. Here is the full list of every enemy in the game.
