Well, this was fun! I'm sure most of you remember capcom's arm-extending hero that never got the sequels he so rightly deserved, the one and only bionic commando. I've gotten many requests for a ReMix, so here it is. By the way, I don't literally take "requests" . . . more like "suggestions" . . I'm working on a guestbook that would enable you to post requests for other ReMixers to see, as I only have so much time in my day, and I run / host several other sites in addition to OC ReMix. That being said, I think you'll like this - it's fast, all of the drum programming and sequencing was input live by me, no loops or anything, and I think it captures the militaristic energy of the game well.
Sadly, I never got around to playing this game. Drum work here is
insane, in a good way. I really like that bass at 0:51.- SubNormal J3 on November 15, 2010
The sounds themselves are kind of annoying. OA's probably right in
that it's just so much high end at once.
Overall it's an energetic track, but I can't say I'm feeling it.
The drum sounds are bothering me and overall I feel almost crowded
by everything going on. Not for me, I guess.- DragonAvenger on October 21, 2009
It's old, simple, and has all the sound quality of the GBA, and yet
I can't help but like it. Even at this tender age the Pretzel was
cranking out classy mixes.- Lucentas on January 29, 2009
I am getting pounded by the high end here, but I do like the melody
and the beat, and especially the ending. Really a toss up whether
my head can take all the high end before it explodes. It could use
a little more reinterpretation to have it stand out, and The levels
overall should be looked at. An old school mix that is pretty good,
but not great.- OA on May 3, 2007
I love simple waveforms. These ones kinda remind me of the Gradius
Those drums hafta go, though. They're too loud and just
distracting.- meccaneer on March 26, 2006
Awesome tune, awesome remix. The drums are really cool, as are the
SFX. Definitely a nice take on the original chord progression. The
remixed sounds sound like they could have come straight from a
Bionic Commando update. One of my top 10 favorite NES games, Capcom
was surely on top then.- MrNemo on August 23, 2004

Now you're giving me an idea, hehehe. 8)- Son Goten on January 22, 2004
Absolutly wonderful. Originally, the overall high-pitched square
waves turned me off to this remix, but after a few listens I grew
quite fond of it. Bionic Commando is one of my favorite NES games,
and now, when playing it on emulator, I usually play this track on
Winamp in lieu of the actual game music. Kudos Dj Pretzel :o)- Robophreeq on November 19, 2003
This isn't going to be my favorite remix. It's a little too
techno-ish for me.
Sadly, WinAmp refuses to be kind to me:

I know its a little late for this but still. This is my favorite
remix of all time. I had to tell people (not like anyone will look
but who gives a mullet) I love this remix because of the tons of
instruments and sounds. To me you can not get better than tons of
different sounds. IT IS HEAVEN IN MY HEAD!! DJPRETZEL IS GOD!!
PRAISE HIM AS IF HE WERE KETCHUP (or catsup whatever you prefer) DO
MORE OF THIS! please. please. 100 instrus and noises and sounds and
everything else please!!1!one!- DjKwiwwin on December 17, 2002
I just can´t praise this remix enough. It´s so RETRO that it makes
me weep. The sounds are just amazing and the drums rule! The drum
sounds make me extremely yealous. They fit together perfectly.
Every time I listen to this remix I just have to listen to it
repeatedly. Excellent! Some of the sounds are propably ripped from
the original NES song (I might be wrong though?), or at least they
sound very close. But that doesn´t affect the excellence of the
song. It´s just something I noticed.
Great remix! Almost makes me want to go to the army! :D Maybe I´ll
get an extending biomechanic arm. I love the game, and I love the
remix more.- EvilHorde on August 4, 2002
I LOVE this remix. Just because of my love for bionic commando- EdgeCrusher on June 9, 2002
Bionic Commando 'ASSAULT'
*Insert obligitory comment about how DJP can't hear high
noises here* An early DJP remix, this one is another classic DJP
DJP's style is usually pretty easily picked out among OCR
Nice instrumentation and arrangement that feels very much
the original NES sound in timbre. Almost like someone ripped out
CPU in an original NES and replaced it with a 50Mhz RISC or
interesting.- m68030 on June 5, 2002
