Our Take

The franchise itself brings so much of memories and is expected to stand on the expectations ever build. The gaming has a beautiful blend of the old shooting graphics and the new 3D environment. The game has more violence and gore than the previous games.

The developer describes the game as:

The game is full of obscene language, insults, gore and general off color humor to that reflects the nature of such a group of individuals. Some examples include:
– Player can also shoot another player. This can be done during a multiplayer match. Human opponent collapses to the ground when life bar is depleted. Player can then pick them up and throw them into the saw machine.
– Enemy corpse is blown upwards onto the players screen during an explosion.

Surely this isn’t the Contra we used to play. But overall it’s a must have for those who have ever dreamt of playing Contra again. This time it’s being served a bit too hot!
