I bought this game because i always wanted to play it. I have seen it played by my friends but was never allowed to play it (some friends huh, they wanted to beat it first). This game plays just like the original nes contra in that its one hit instant death, all your enemies move in a predictable set of attacks, and you have a huge array of weapons. This contra however, is touched up with what the ps2 can manage. It runs very smooth, there are no powerups everything is available from the start, and every stage plays a little different-from classic styles to hanging off the tops of sewers, to bouncing around on jet skies, and even flying around on missiles. The controls are perfect but completely complicated because of the many play modes. You have to be able to scroll to your desired weapons while evading your foes. Add in the abilities to strife (move in all directions but attack in one) or hold position (stand still but can shoot in all directions, sometimes spaces to stand are limited) and it can get a little confusing or frustrating because you get shot while trying to adjust and die. That being said, this is a very difficult game even though it is predictable. It truely tries to live up to the originals reputation, but not just the game-the beating of the game. I can remember people boasting about going through the original game without dying a single time. This contra however took that challenge literally as you can not die and must attain a 100% kill rate if you ever want to see the ending. Hardcore. I recommend this game but only to the most hardcore of players (no my friends never got close to the end). I like the game, even if I cant make it to the end.
Contra has always been a favorite game of mine since nintendo. I bought "Shattered Soldier" thinking it would be awesome to play Contra on the ps2. I was right. Shattered Soldier is the best Contra game in my opinion. It has the same movements as the original nintendo versions with way better graphics. If your looking for an awesome Contra game for the ps2, this is it.
First and foremost the game plays fantasticly. I rate this game as good cause it really challenges you. I brought it because I'm a die hard Contra fan. I like the game because you have to use strategy along with skills to be successful at it. The only thing I dislike is the fact that it's really difficult( I beat it on easy). In saying all that I would defenitely buy this game again.
This game is action packed. Before this game I had only played the orignal game and this one is a tribute to it. The graphics are alright but the game play itself takes some skill much like its predicessor.
