For those wondering, here's the interview in question.
Anyway, 200th HG review! Uprising was never intended to be the review, and I never wanted to review the game at all as it was ready to come out. But the second I started playing through the game... I felt I needed to review it. If this was a typical Contra game without the Hard Corps name attached to it, I probably would have given it a higher rating. But it wasn't, and that's why it got the rating you see now.
The game I was originally going to do for my 200th was Astal... but I changed my mind after playing it for a few minutes. Then I thought about doing MGS3: S, but then that would require replaying the whole thing as a refresher, which would take too long. Eventually, Uprising just became the review.
I'd especially like to see your take on Contra Force.
