Contra: Shattered Soldier review

Reviewed February 02, 2006

hex says: "In a generation where 2D games belong to Gameboys, DSs and PSPs, it’s always nice and refreshing to see a 2D game on a home console.

He worked there solely for the free rentals, if that tells you anything. Ultimately, I think it was worth the time, given his monthly bil..."

zoop says: "Ahhh, yes. It is the ever-so long awaited return of one of the most notorious video games series of all-time: Contra. Contra had “returned” in many forms throughout the recent years on the PlayStation (One) and such, however, the “return” was more like a slap in the face of us Contra fans. This, as well as the not-so-true-to-the-original remake of Contra III: The Alien Wars on The Game Boy Advance, proved to most gamers that the Contra series was just a far, long lost memory, and shell of its fo..."
