This is pretty much an ideal review for this game, well done. I'm on a Contra kick right now, thanks in part to the Captain, so I hunted Operation C down on HG to see if it had a review, and happily found this one.

Incidentally, the way you described the top-down levels 2 and 4, suggested to me that you haven't played Super C. Is that true? That game eschewed Contra's behind-the-back levels for vertical shooting fare that Operation C obviously decided to continue with.

It's an unpopular opinion, I'm sure, but I actually prefer the top-down to the behind-the-back, even though Contra is a better game (last time I checked) than Super C. (And no, the crappy, rotating top-down levels from Contra III don't count.)

Yeah, I played Super C way back, but I don't remember almost any of it. I think that's one of the few games from the old days that I haven't attempted to play again. I liked it quite a bit back then, but I don't know that I'll bother playing it any time soon.

What I've wanted to do is replay Contra: Legacy of War so I can review that again, despite knowing full well that it's an awful game.

Thanks for reading!

I ran through Super C two nights ago. Operation C is JUST like it. (I guess it makes sense given the names.) If they were going for a portable version of Super C, I'd say they succeeded, but... Super C doesn't hold up that well in the first place, and that surprised me, because Contra absolutely does.
