Weak

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.

what can i say about a contra game that hasn't been said or heard. it's hard? its beatable? it has a good story? it has fun gunplay? its a sidescroller shoot em up designed for 1 thing. to make you rage. and....well, if you don't know what to expect from a contra game? well i think you should research a little more before picking this up. for thoes of you who know what contra is. its your typical contra game with a little twist. the bosses are alot more in your face and a heck of alot more dangerous. this game is the toughest one in the series so far(next to hard corp)

Great game but it was even more frustrating then I remember on the NES! The control's were sticky and the camera was annoying at time's
Also where is the code for up,up,down.down.left,right left,right B-A Start? that code gave you 100 lives! If it is in this game I would like to know how to do it seriously lol. Also they should've left the original Contra in this game come on Konami! Lame.. So I give this game an 8 out of 10!
