    Good Game to kill time with a freind

    Rated on December 29, 2005 by askagamer

    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. A...

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

    Rated on February 04, 2005 by dwellerofrhymes

    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,...

    Not the best, but worth playing!

    Rated on August 19, 2006 by Chezzanator
