Contra 4
4.5 Star Review  GameZone - Dec 7, 2007

Pure side-scrolling action games, also known as run-and-gun shooters, are few and far between these days. Sure, you’ve got anomalies like Alien Hominid and they put out a new Metal Slug every once in a while, but it’s nothing compared to the early 90s when the genre practically defined video games, both in arcades and at home. Even the Contra series, one of the founding fathers of run-and-gun shooters, has recently diverged from its origins with games like Neo Contra. So it comes as quite a relief to me that I can tell you that Contra 4 for the DS is an straightforward, old-school action game that absolutely lives up to the series’ legacy.

Contra 4
4 Star Review  IGN.com - Nov 13, 2007

The Contra series, like any great and popular videogame franchise, has been spun-out into sequels almost at a bi-yearly rate since the creation in the arcade two decades ago. Contra games have been produced on systems across the whole spectrum, from the NES classics to the Genesis and Super NES, eventually moving into 3D on the PlayStation and Saturn, and ultimately capping off on the PlayStation 2 in Contra: Shattered Soldier. Each sequel had its ups, downs, pros, and cons, but ask the hardcore fanatics which one's their favorite and chances are they'll harken back to the old-school trilogy: Contra, Super C, or Contra III.
