i have played this game and all the other contra games and i cant beat any of them on level one! why did the developers take the 30 lives code away from us?? everyone loves that code and remembers it! why? because that was back when contra was fun!! i cant beat level 2 out of 9 levels! i am just going to use action replay because this game SUCKS!! the graphics are bad for a ds game. its repetetive and is stupid! the only way any one was able to beat it without cheats was to manouver and calculate every thing that would happen! does that sound like fun to you??? i didnt think so!

This looks like an 8-bit game

I bought a DS (but returned it after a couple days) and this was one of the first games I played. I could not believe how simple and original NES-like the graphics are. There is nothing "DS" about this game. They say the DS is an N64 equivalent but this game really looks like it's at least 10 years old. If it wasn't for the namesake this game would only get half the good the reviews that it does. This game is a shining example of why I exchanged my DS for a PSP.

the first contra game i have played

this game was decent. it was fun gameplay, almost identical to metal slug. however the game is ruined by the fact that it does not have the ability to save. and in addition it is very diffocult. the first one time i played it i only got to level 3, then i had to restart it all over again and i got to level 5. at this point i did not want to do levels 1 2 or 3 again so i had no choice but to turn the game in. I was severely disapointed, if you have played contra before you probably knew this but i guess im a newbie and i was unwarned. Beware of the monotony of redoing levels before you buy this game!
