New Releases: What upcoming games are you looking forward to?
In my opinion this was the absolute pinnacle of this series! This game was excellent and was really ambitious graphically for it's time. Contra 3 wasn't borderline impossible like most installments of Contra yet it still remained challenging and fun. I loved the fact that it changed from run and gunner to top view shoot 'em up between some stages because I find having just sidescrolling run and gunning gets rather boring for a whole game.
Good job Konami! Perhaps one day you'll make a Contra I respect again someday... I'll keep playing them but I'm not holding my breath.
P.S. Contra 4 sucked.
P.P.S. With the exception of Hard Corps Uprising (on Uprising mode) it stands as the only Contra game I have beaten on hard the whole way through.
