Hard Corps: Uprising

Game Over Online
21 March 2015
  • Excerpt: Contra: Hard Corps on the Genesis is considered to this day to be the most difficult game in the series, and since we're talking about Contra here, that's saying quite a lot.

  • Conclusion: Cons: -A couple boss battles can feel cheap. -In rising mode, some grinding is needed to get your player suited for later levels. -Extra characters are paid DLC. On a side note- the standard Xbox 360 controller should not be used to play this type of game- as many of you know the d-pad is terrible...

  • Conclusion: On a basic level Hard Corps: Uprising is excellent, retaining the Contra spirit yet giving it a new lease of life. As such, series fans and old-school throwbacks will probably love every minute of it, regardless of cost.

  • Excerpt: I generally consider myself to be pretty decent at games. Not particularly amazing, but adequate, and I prefer my games erring on the side of too hard rather than too easy. Getting 100 per cent completion on Bayonetta was a personal gaming highlight of 2010, for instance.

  • Summary: Despite its painful difficulty " Hard Corps: Uprising " kept me coming back to it. Both the arcade and the Uprising mode saw me repeating levels to either upgrade my abilities or just out of bloody mindedness.

  • Excerpt: Hard Corps: Uprising is an attempt to spin that game off into its own series, developed by Arc System Works, the Japanese developer that gave us Guilty Gear and Blaz Blue .

  • Excerpt: Hard Corps: Uprising is described perfectly by Konami as, “… a new 2D side scroller developed by ARC System Works that pays homage to classic Konami action series.” That brief description will evoke memories for veteran gamers of the classic Contra series, as it has brought me back to quite a few...
