  • Excerpt: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start. Even if you can't appreciate the significance of that legendary button sequence, you can still get in on the action with Contra: Shattered Soldier, a PlayStation 2 game from Konami.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: 'Tis the season for remakes it would seem, and like Shinobi, Contra: Shattered Soldier offers plenty for the old-school gamer to enthuse over, and for newcomers, well, if they'll only be a little patient, they're sure to find a lot to like about this package.

The Next Level
18 November 2002
  • Excerpt: Things change. Contra would return to the console world in 1996 and 1997 with Legacy of War on the PlayStation and Saturn. However, if the word were not on the packaging, on the disc, and on the title screen, no one would have believed that this was of the same pedigree as its predecessors.

  • Conclusion: Definitely one for the rental market, and not really a good idea for your gaming collection unless you're a full on Contra freak.

  • Summary: Contra: Shattered Soldier is a great trip back down memory lane for hardcore gamers and fans of the Super Nintendo game. The biggest problem is that the game is more a test of memory about enemy locations rather then skilled pattern or puzzle solving. It's also pretty damn tough.

Test : Pokemon X

GameHope
13 September 2004
  • Summary: Ça y est, il est là. Enfin ! Il est tout beau, tout chaud et il débarque à peine dans nos 3DS. De quoi donc ? Du Pokémon nouveau, pardi ! Ou plutôt LES nouveaux, puisque comme bien souvent ce sont deux opus d’un coup qui sortent, en l’occurrence X et Y ici.
  • Pros: Une nouvelle génération, Pas mal de nouveautés, Héros customisable, Durée de vie potentiellement titanesque, comme toujours, Se balader à dos de Rhinocorne !, Un scénario plus intéressant que dans Version Noire 2 et Blanche 2…
  • Cons: …Mais en même temps moins d’activités annexes, Rame parfois en combat, Le SPV et la Poké Récré, sympas mais anecdotiques, La Banque Pokémon, payante

Contra : Shattered Soldier

6 September 2004
  • Excerpt: La vague nostalgique des jeux old school atteint son paroxysme avec ce remake d'un hit vieux de 11 ans qui nous revient pratiquement inchangé. Souvenir d'une époque où finir un jeu pouvait parfois tenir de l'exploit.
