Contra 4 (DS) Review


Contra 4 is a title that should not be missed by any fan of the series or fan of run and gun 2-d side scrolling action. This is a game that is meant for the hardcore; challenging, fun, rewarding and a dog-fight. Younger players will want to stay clear...

THE VERDICT: Contra 4 is a stellar effort and everything you could ask for in a Contra update. It's a fast, fun, infuriatingly challenging, and highly addictive good time that stays true to its Contra roots. While it might be a little on the short...

Contra 4


Would you pay someone to punch you in the face? You will now.

Ultra-challenging gameplay will push your skills to the limit; loads of awesome unlockables, including two classic NES titles; appealing graphics and audio; pitch perfect controls; great replay value; fantastic arsenal of weapons; memorable boss battles.

Ultra-challenging gameplay will make girlie-men and wussies cry; no real story line; getting killed by enemies between screens really sucks.

Contra 4 Review


The Contra series makes a wonderful comeback on the DS

Contra 4 has become my cartridge of choice for my DS. The game is a lot of fun, even if the challenge level is out of this world. If you've been around for all 20 years of Contra, this is a must purchase. Even if you're new to the series, it's time for...
