  • 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.

Hard Corps Uprising (XBLA) Review

  • Conclusion: I truly enjoyed this game. The arcade mode is there to offer you the challenge you expect from the title, and the rising mode gives you a feeling of progression and strategy that will help the less skilled or less patient players stay interested.

  • 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: You probably have heard by now that Hard Corps : Uprising is hard. If you’re using that as the sole deterrent to picking up this title, though, you’re missing out on 2011 best pure-action title so far.

  • 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. The original Japanese version was the first Contra game to incorporate an actual life bar, so you could take a couple of hits...

  • 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.

The name works on a couple of different levels, because this is a game that's strictly for the hardest of hardcore players: a...
