Hard Corps: Uprising Review

28 February 2011
  • 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. A fantastic presentation and plenty of nostalgic touches mixes with crazy action to create a game that teeters on greatness, but is hampered by a few too many frustrations.
  • 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

  • Excerpt: The Contra series is famous for its brutal difficulty, but Konami and Arc System Works are pushing the threshold with Hard Corps: Uprising. 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. As either Colonel Bahamut or Krystal, you'll tear through eight levels of chaos and mayhem.

  • 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. But for all the high production anime intro, in-game visuals and cracking soundtrack being uber slick and modern, Hard Corps is more eager to plug itself into a flux capacitor and offer a blast back to the golden oldie Contra series, the tough side-scrolling...
  • 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. Не ностальгический ретро-римейк классики в подкрашенных пикселях, а хороший современный боевик, достойный PlayStation 3 с Xbox 360. Пусть и двухмерный. Да еще и с иллюстрациями и музыкой Дайске Исиватари, автора Guilty Gear .

  • 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
