Contra ReBirth Review

Cheat Code Central
24 April 2010
  • Conclusion: Contra ReBirth is less of a rebirth than it is simply a reviving of the franchise. Obviously, that's going to be exactly what the doctor ordered for most long-time fans. The run-and-gun shooting holds up extremely well to this day, and the level design is almost pitch perfect. However, it's an incredibly short romp, offering only a smidge of the variety that's locked up in the annals of the series. The lack of online co-op is a real bummer, too.

Contra ReBirth (Wii) - Review

VGChartz
2 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Intro Living in a third world country was never easy, especially some 15 years ago when access to buying game consoles was limited to a few wealthy people. The remainder of us who had no possibility of obtaining one had to content ourselves with playing in the 'arcades' (which for us were modified game consoles that operated for a set period of time after inserting coins into a slot). Each 20-cent of Lempira coin (for reference 18.95 Lps.

Contra Rebirth review

Wii's World
25 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Overall This game is only ten dollars and it has "Contra" in the title, which makes me wonder why I even have to review it. Well, for one reason: If you don't like difficult games, and you think ten dollars is too hard to come by, then save it for gas money. Otherwise, you should download this game now. It isn't perfect, but with Contra Rebirth, you're the one who has to live to a set of standards, not the game.

Contra Rebirth

Game Over Online
16 September 2009
  • Excerpt: After other successful retro releases like Mega Man 9 and Gradius Rebirth, it should come as no surprise that Contra Rebirth’s gameplay is largely the same side-scrolling run-n-gun action that fans came to expect from the series’ 8 and 16-bit incarnations. You’ll blast waves of smaller foes leading to massive boss battles, and to keep things from getting too predictable, there are platforming sections and vertical shooting/obstacle avoiding sections shrewn about to keep...

Contra Rebirth

  • Summary: Mein WiiWare Pflichtkauf Nr. 2 (neben Gradius Rebirth ) erreicht nach längerer Verschiebung endlich uns Europäer. Genau wie oben genanntes Gradius, ist Contra Rebirth eine Rückbesinnung zu den alten Actionwurzeln, wie wir sie aus NES- bzw. SNES-Zeiten kannten.
  • Pros: Geile Action mit viel Bum-Bum, Kooperatives Gameplay, Viel Abwechslung
  • Cons: Nur fünf Level, Kaum Extras oder neue Spielmodi

Contra ReBirth

15 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Contra ReBirth hat mir alles in allem jede Menge Freude bereitet. Der zu niedrige Standard-Schwierigkeitsgrad und die unbegrenzten Continues missfallen mir zwar und wirken etwas wie ein Verrat an der Serie; doch das sind ja zum Glück Probleme, die man selbst aus der Welt schaffen kann.
  • Pros: Schnörkelloses Gameplay, Der reinste Action-Overkill, Zweispieler-Modus, Hervorragende Steuerung, Jederzeit fair, Immer wieder für eine Runde gut
  • Cons: Dezent kurzes Vergnügen, Highscore wird nicht abgespeichert, Ein paar mehr Bosse hätten es sein dürfen, Nicht deaktivierbarer Weichzeichner, Zu schwer für Neulinge..., ... zu leicht für Profis

Contra ReBirth

Eyes on Nintendo
1 February 2010
  • Conclusion: Mag die allgemeine Kürze jeder Schwierigkeitsstufe durchaus ein kleiner Dämpfer sein, wird ReBirth auf "Hard" und "Nightmare" zu dem, was man kennt: knochenharte Arbeit. Nur nehmen die unendlich vielen Continues viel von dem Schrecken, eines der wertvollen Leben zu verlieren, denn man wird nach dem Game Over einfach an den letzten Rüccksetzpunkt gebeamt und weiter geht's.
