  • Excerpt: Most shooter fans over the age of 20 should remember the acclaimed Contra series for the arcade, Nintendo and Super Nintendo. People loved it for the fast-paced run and gun action and frustrating difficulty. But after the 16-bit days, the series to a long downward spiral with the release of Contra: Legacy Of War for the Playstation. Most fans blamed the new developer, and 3D graphics for this atrocious disaster.
  • Pros: Fast-Paced, brutal shooting action, The graphics and sound that the series deserves
  • Cons: Newbies won't appreciate a game like this, A tad on the repetitive side

  • 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.

  • 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.

Contra: Shattered Soldier -

  • 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. It only took me about 120 seconds to lose all my lives on the first attempt.

  • 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.

  • Conclusion: Persévérance est mot clé de la réussite dans ce jeu bien particulier. Très difficile, à la fois prenant et frustrant, Contra Shattered Soldier possède des qualités indéniables qui en font un Hit dans son domaine. Une vraie réussite pour un jeu qui n'a jamais affiché des ambitions titanesques. Que les habitués y prennent autant de plaisir que possible, et que les débutants mangent leur pad ! C'est la loi du plus fort.
  • Pros: Graphismes somptueux, Jouabilité parfaite, Ambiance sonore de qualité
  • Cons: Très court, Parfois frustrant, Réservé aux meilleurs

Contra - Shattered Soldier

  • Conclusion: Fans der Reihe k�nnen beruhigt zugreifen, da �Contra -Shattered Soldier� genau das 2-D Feeling bietet, dass man beim 32-Bit Vorg�nger leider vermisste und zuletzt auf dem SNES genie�en konnte. Neueinsteiger sollten zuerst bei einem Spiele-Shop des Vertrauens probespielen, um sich �ber den wirklich anspruchsvollen Schwierigkeitsgrad im Klaren zu werden.
  • Pros: saubere Steuerung, 2P-Modus, cooles 2D-Feeling, in 60 Herz spielbar
  • Cons: für Neueinsteiger sehr schwer, etwas zu kurz ausgefallen
