  • Summary: This port sucks. Konami ported the wrong version, it was the Nintendo version, with the classic soundtrack and graphics that made Contra such a acclaimed game. The controls are bad and you can't remap them.

Xbox Live Arcade Unplugged : Volume 1

  • Conclusion: This is a pretty good selection of Live Arcade games, however if you have Xbox live you're far better off just downloading the trial versions, as for the most part there's not huge amounts of difference. However if you don't have access to the trials it's probably worth a rent.

Contra Reader Review - 8.0

  • Conclusion: I am very pleased with this port to the Xbox360 of Contra. It is identical to the Arcade version, which is what I was hoping for. I admittedly never played the Nintendo version, but did spend many hours playing the Commodore 64 version in the mid 1980s. I find it confusing why the original reviewer is so attached to the Nintendo version.

Xbox Live Arcade Unplugged Vol 1 (Xbox 360) - Worth it if cheap!

  • Excerpt: Xbox Arcade Volume 1 Unplugged is a collection of 6 of the finest games available for download in the first year or so off Xbox live. Since the evolution of online gaming and video game companies selling products for download, a wave of games have been released by a range of publishers that are only available as downloads. This disc is intended for those who perhaps don’t have access to the online gaming stores and/or prefer the safety and longevity of a game on disc.
  • Pros: Range of games, may appeal greatly more to some than others
  • Cons: Old games, bad choice of some, One duff game

  • Excerpt: Arcade Unplugged Volume 1 brings you a selection of games from Xbox Live which are all contained within one disc so you can play them without having Xbox Live or you can download the games from disc on to your Xbox Hard Drive and then not have to worry about using the disc in the future (although this does take up around 4gb of space).
  • Pros: Great games, lots of choice, can be played from disc or installed to hard - drive .
  • Cons: Don't like one or two of the games a lot .
