Fun at First and Boss Fights eeeeeee.......

If you look at my title it says Fun at First and Boss Fights eeeeeee....... When I mean fun at first I mean its only fun for a day or 3. I got bored of it in 3 days. This game is really fun and it doesent involve the stylus that much. the controls are quite simple and let me say that this was my 1st time playing contra. The boss fights get really stressful when you dont know what to do. But when you start to think about it you shall defeat the level. Anyways the game is really fun they could have used the stylus more and added in more stuff like upgrading guns and a more choice of characters and making up the names for them. So I give this game a 4/5

The same Contra from way back. I never played it then. I did like the version from 1990, for the NES. But this is the original arcade game.

After so many years I'm happy to finally be able to play a game that truly resembles the old contra games. It's challenging, 2-d and it's action pack much like contra III was back in the SNES. It also fully uses the 2 screens something that most games on the DS rarely use which is nice to see. Although the 2 screens can get confusing at first beacuse its difficult to judge the bullets and soldiers crossing between the screens you get use to it after a while. I recommened this game to anybody that enjoy the contra games back in the late 80's and early 90's this game really does justice to the legacy that was contra back then.
