    Good Game to kill time with a freind

    Saw this title at EB Games one day for 20 buck so I thought why not. True it's very short but the gameplay was fast and fun. Some levels did provide a good challenge. Plus the dialogue is hilarious. All in all this is on... Read Full Review

    True to the early 90's of gaming, but better suited to the arcades. Pick it up cheap and enjoy it for what it is.

    For over 16 years now the Contra series has instantly summoned up memories of ultimate side scrolling action. Neo Contra attempts to break new ground by taking the series into 3D, while retaining the all out action of th... Read Full Review

    Maybe a good prototype for future 3D Contras, but horribly short of Shattered Soldier.

    Shattered Soldier being one of my favorite games of all time, I was wondering if this game could come close, but honestly never thought it would. Well, Neo Contra did turn out better than I expected, and while Neo Contr... Read Full Review

    Not the best, but worth playing!

    This game, while is not the best Contra game ever made, is still a good game! It has a different approach than the other Contras but has still the basic shoot 'em up style. It may be short, but it still offers good game ... Read Full Review
