  • Summary: The Contra series holds a special place in my heart. I have been hooked on the series ever since the first game launched in arcades back in 1987. My childhood is filled with fond memories of playing cooperative with my older brother at both the local 7-11 and Aladdin’s Castle (complete with an...

  • Summary: Contra is back with this sequel to the Genesis classic, Contra: Hard Corps. Arc Systems, makers of Guilty Gear XX, gets down and dirty retro with this insanely hard ode to old school shooters.
  • Pros: Gorgeous 2D graphics, Classic Contra guns and gameplay, Diverse, large levels, Progressive character building in Rising mode
  • Cons: Too damn hard, Frustrating lack of restart points, Archaic button layout makes the game harder than it should be

In the year 2613, the world has come under the rule of an evil dictator, and it's up to a small band of freedom fighters to liberate the masses from oppression.

  • Conclusion: You can tell Hard Corps means business right from the opening movie with its HEAVY METAL score and tightly-edited montage of explosions and faster-and-much-cooler-than-thou characters defying gravity and good sense.
  • Pros: Hardcore enough to prove challenging for most, Rising mode adds longevity.
  • Cons: Still some who won't like the difficulty, or be put off by the cartoony sheen.

  • Excerpt: Год назад я собирал осколки челюсти с пола, впервые увидев Hard Corps в действии. Яркая, зрелищная, стильная игра – и одновременно дьявольски сложная; с ходу непросто пройти даже первый уровень.

  • Conclusion: Dans la droite lignée des précédents Contra, Hard Corps Uprising offre un challenge relevé qui demandera de la persévérance pour espérer atteindre le générique de fin. Mais avec son action frénétique, ses ennemis variés, ses contrôles parfaitement au point, et sa réalisation de qualité, le jeu a de...
  • Pros: Un vrai challenge pour les amateurs du genre, Une réalisation solide, Le mode coopératif en local ou en ligne
  • Cons: Les personnages additionnels payants, Sans doute trop difficile pour les novices

  • Summary: Le titre nous offre un retour réussi dans l’ensemble. Les amoureux du genre seront heureux d’en faire l’acquisition. Il est cependant dommage qu’il faille repasser à la caisse pour avoir l’intégralité du casting du titre.
  • Pros: Difficulté, Durée de vie, Gameplay, Graphisme
  • Cons: DLC, Difficulté
