No Game will ever again Match the Style or Grace of Konami's CONTRA!
1 February 2003 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I was born in 1987. Contra was released by the Konami Company in 1988. It was meant to be. All through my youth, Contra served me as an entertainment source for countless hours. Humming along with the awesome soundtrack and whipping out my spreadgun, lazer-gun, ect, I magically wasted time in 8-Bit heaven with Konami's Contra. Now I have grown up. I'm almost 16 now. I currently own a Playstation 2 and have owned other systems since my NES, and I can more than safetly say that no game has matched the Run'N'Gun magic this game packed.

Konami, thank you for CONTRA. I will never forget being 5 and sitting next to the TV with my brothers taking turns playing together.
