Neo Contra

Game Over Online
2 September 2005
  • Excerpt: One of the phrases that I often abuse, in my reviews, is "over the top." A game is rarely at the top, or just below it; if the issue comes up, it's almost always over it. Neo Contra is in a geosynchronous orbit over the top. It exists in a place where the "top" is a particularly old and dull legend.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Neo Contra may not be of the same pedigree as the old school Contra games many of us grew up with, but that doesn't stop it from being a pretty solid title nonetheless.

  • Excerpt: Neo Contra is a run-and-gun shoot 'em up with a top-down viewpoint. In human-speak, that means you see the action from above and guide your soldier through the levels in a manner similar to such classics as Alien Syndrome, MERCS, One, Smash TV, and Zombies Ate My Neighbors.

  • Summary: Neo Contra has the dubious distinction of being the shortest game that’s ever graced my PS2. Granted, I tend to prefer those 100+ hour monster games, the sort that tend to warp time and somehow cause the morning sun to rise seconds after “just popping the game in for a few seconds” after dinner.

Neo Contra review (PS2)

7 November 2004
  • Excerpt: Legacy of War blew, Shattered Soldier didn't. If not wasting a paragraph on that crap felt good to you, this is your game. Neo Contra spends no time with the superfluous stuff such as jumping that bogged down earlier 3D Contra s, and instead opts to place the limelight on what everyone came for:...

  • Summary: "Hra s názvem Neo Contra navazuje na Contra: Shattered Soldier, tento titul vyšel již v roce 2003 a stal se velmi oblíbeným. Nejvìtší rozdíl mezi tìmito hrami je v grafice. Nyní na vás èeká plnì 3D zobrazení. Jinak i v Neo Contra budete bìhat, skákat a støílet mimozemš�any..."

  • Conclusion: Ein kurzes Actionspektakel für arcadeverwöhnte Nostalgiker ohne Storyanspruch. Wem außerdem die kurze Spielzeit nichts ausmacht, der kann sich den neuesten Contra-Teil getrost zulegen.

30 March 2005
  • Conclusion: Freunde von Old School-Action oder Fans der Contra-Reihe bekommen mit Neo Contra ein durchaus spa�iges und kurzweiliges Spiel, das aber leider in Sachen Umfang stark zu w�nschen �brig l�sst.
  • Pros: Kurzweiliges Actionspektakel, Einsteigerfreundlich, Viele freispielbare Goodies, Zwischensequenzen lassen sich abbrechen
  • Cons: Zu kurz, Größtenteils unspektakuläre Technik, Dezente Steuerungsprobleme
