This game was really ahead of other games of the crappy consoles of the yesteryears. But that is because Konami are known to kick ass and won't let anyone down. Each level was radically different from the other and the gameplay was pretty hard unless you got the better guns. Sure, there was no story and the plot was crap but the game focused on action. With great graphics, great sound and a good soundtrack, Contra is one of the most memorable games of all time even though it was quickly overtaken by further developments in technology and art seen in newer games. The last few levels were amazingly designed. It was a good thing that this game was there during a time where a lot of other console games sucked.
