Summary: With this being one of my fave retro series I enjoy adding to the collection. The game arrived with no scratches and it's original case. Missing instruction manual but I mostly keep those to add to the packaging artwork.
contra in semi 3D, fun and still close to old games
5 November 2013
Summary: Fun, uncomlicated, unadulterated killemall. Controls take lil getting used too, stuff to unlock, difficulty youd expect from contra, kool new n old characters, and creepy kool bosses that fit contra universe. Story kind of good, but nothing special and executed poorly in terms of music (check opening movie).
Summary: Nothing new here, just the point of view of the screen. Apart from that this game is pure contra, full of non-stop action from stage to stage. Cannot get enough of it. Some people complaint about the game being too short, but if you've played shattered soldier on ps2 you know that the first 4 stages are not the only ones in the game, you can get to stages 5,6, & 7 if you manage to finish the standard four with scores of A or above (which is not a piece of cake in any...
Summary: It's a good top-view shooter. The only question is why? Contra has always been best as a side scrolling game. I have to take away 1 star just because they broke that formula that works so well for them. Otherwise I had fun with it.
A decent effort, but definately not top notch.....

Summary: I have to admit that I enjoyed playing this game. Unfortunately it is extremely short and probably has limited replay value for most gamers. The top-down perspective makes this feel quite a bit different from the orginal Contra that was available for the NES. At a bargain price, I would recommend it. At full price, I would say your money is better spent elsewhere. Definately something for only the hardcore Contra fans out there.
Summary: Unfun and very short. Once you select your main weapons at the start of the game, you are stuck with them. Nothing new here folks, same old crap....shoot em up and one hit you are dead. The graphics are very bland and it seems as though they slapped this one together in less than a month. Rent Only!!!!! Otherwise, you will be disappointed.
Summary: Its a good game and keeps one involved. You can't compare it with new games like Mortal kombat which are more advanced. But for an economical price its definitely worth it. Nice collection in my games.
Every time they try to reinvent contra they mess it up big time.

Summary: Problems - way to easy - no jumping even though there is an unused button - The story is the worst video game story ever. - Just buy shattered solider(there is a reason why it came out first but still cost more)
Summary: Let's set the record straight on this game real quick, there is no way it can compare to the legacy of the origional Contra. With that being said Now it is time to actually talk about the game. What we get is a psuedo 3D Contra title that is fast paced and overlly enjoyable to play. the story here is the Bill Raizer the lead from the last game has returend to eliminate the Contra Generals and stop the new Biological threat.
