This Evolution of Contra (Mostly) Works 0

The past few years have seen a swell in the amount of franchises looking to get back to their roots. Games such as Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode One and Street Fighter 4 have tried to return their respective franchises to their roots with varying degrees of success. Konami has decided to take a different approach with Hard Corps: Uprising by evolving the Contra formula in some interesting ways while still remaining true to what made the series great in the first place. Only a handful of issues k...

A lesson in bad design. 0

Most people would agree that bad checkpoints in a Contra style game is unforgivable. It is.

It's Contra 0

I love Contra.  I use to play Contra III for hours with friends and even though I would get my ass handed to me I still came back each time.  Hard Corps: Uprising is Contra.  Somethings, such as the artwork and leveling up, have changed or are new to the Contra series, but the basics are all there.  This game acts as a prequel to Contra: Hard Corps.  You actually get to play Bahamut, the boss of Hard Corps and if you download the extra characters then you have up to five characters to reek devas...
