  • Excerpt: Did you know the Game Boy Advance doubles as an emulator? At least that appears to be the sexy trend these days anyway. Konami’s Contra Advance: The Alien Wars EX is one such example, a port of Contra III: The Alien Wars for the SNES. In fact, the developers have done one better, incorporating a couple of levels from Contra: Hard Corps for the Sega Genesis. Unfortunately, the resulting remix comes at a price that fans of the series might find all too costly.

  • Conclusion: Für den einen zum Heulen, für den anderen zum Jubeln. Unter dem Gesichtspunkt „Retro-Arcade-Game“ ein Meisterwerk mit knallhartem, herausforderndem Schwierigkeitsgrad und noch heute respektabler Grafik. Für den „modernen“ Spieler jedoch nicht unbedingt zu empfehlen.
  • Pros: beeindruckend große Gegner, herausfordernd „hart“
  • Cons: frustrierendes Gameplay, schlechte Sound- und Musikkulisse
