New wave retro

This new bells n whistles Contra looks very nice IMO while still retaining the old stylee gameplay.

It IS very nice indeed They made a test of the PS2 version on german TV last week and Im really forced to buy this game since I loved the old Contra Style games (Super Probotector on SNES, Gryzor on Amstrad CPC and so on)

Hmm

I heard Contra Shattered Soldiers is very good , but it's too easy. The bosses and enemies are uninspired, and if you ever managed to finish any Contra game, you won't have any trouble finishing this one.

I actually heard the complete opposite. PSW magazine (UK PS2) said its only problem is its ridiculous difficulty level, which was one of the things that was attracting me to it (shooters should be rock solid IMO).

The PS2 Contra is better than the shit-arse PSX outing, but it's still mega poop, and nothing in comparison with something like Contra Hardcorps for the Genesis.

Contra Hard Corps it's my fav in the Contra series, so I think hard to beat it.

Today gamers are used only to play FPSs , so give them pink bullets to dodge, and they have no idea of what to do

It's not that, today's "players" are used to play every game with CHEATS ON.

Why people don't leave old games in dignity?

Just because someone makes an update of an old game, doesnt mean it detracts from the original.
Never understood that argument.

Of course it doesn't, but that's what happens! Because it HAS to be 3D. Why? Fuck knows.

The beauty of this game is that it's not 3D. The ambience reeks of moodiness. And what a gorgeous treatment. Hail to Konami for not going 3D.
Dastardly, it's not because the masses want 3D...it's becuase the masses are
told they want 3D.
