heres a short review from your one and only SOUNDS!!!
if you've ever played the NES or SNES contra.. you pretty much should know what to expect from this game... if you havent played them, then go download the emulartors or something...
first thing that comes to mind about this game is that.. this game is pretty difficult.. i've beat the game only once and it was on easy... and even on easy it took me about 20 continues just to complete the game. peice of crap... And I've only completed the game half way on normal and i aint going to try to play it anymore due to its difficutly and nothing really pulling me into the game to make me want to finish it. so im not.
what i remember about the old school contra games is that the co op is what made the game really fun and enjoyable... but because the ds contra requires you to have 2 cartridges for co op i couldnt enjoy that part of the game.. piece of s%*!.
So i give this game a.... C! no no wait.. i give it a C- !!!!!!!!!!!!
