I've been playing Contra since I was, I think, 7 years old. The first one I've played was Super C, actually. When I picked up this game for my DS, it was nice to return to the classic style of a 2D side-scrolling run-and-gun game. Too bad I misplaced the game, so I have to buy it again. Anyways, great graphics, great soundtrack, great difficulty setting to actually enjoy Contra, and it's still multiplayer for those who want to play with a friend. It's just a brilliant DS game. If you're a casual gamer, and you hate challenges that want you to pull out all your hair and scream like a little school girl (no offense to anyone), then you might wanna avoid this title, because this will beat you down to the ground pretty fast if you're not careful. If you've been playing Contra all of your life, and you just got a new (or used) DS and/or you haven't played this yet, then this is a game for you. One thing the retro gamers will like is that after completing 4-8 challenges in Challenge Mode (available after you beat the game once), you can relive the days of Contra & Super C, as they are unlockable and ready to play. Overall, it's an excellent title for the DS. Contra gamers, old and new, will enjoy it. And for the price of the game now, I don't see why nobody shouldn't get this game.
