Contra 3: The Alien Wars
Reviewed by Benjamin Arreola
If you never heard of contra games you probably suck. We all know
that contra is one of the best shooting game of all time back in the
NES days and is still one of the best game even from today. But with
Contra 3 out, with better graphics, sound, and control. Contra 3 is
easily the best contra game out there and one of the best game of
all-time. The game starts off when the aliens came back and wipe
out neo city, and therefore the alien wars begin. Since Mad Dog and
Scorpion are long dead, their direct descendents Jimbo and Sully
take their part in Contra. There, you start in Neo City and you work
your way through six intense levels.
Graphics 10 out of 10
If you played Contra 3 back in the Super NES days the graphics are simply
amazing. The stage are very detailed and so are the enemies and the bosses.
Music and Sound 10 out of 10
Contra 3 has amazingly great sound and music. The music is perfectly well
fitted to each stage, like the in intense music battle in level 4 and to the
star wars like music in level 6. The sound is very good like the roaring
flames, the explosion, and the nasty alien sounds. Konami did a great job
in the sound and music of Contra 3.
Game Challenge 10 out of 10
The game challenge was well thought out. You can adjust to your own challenge
like how many lives to start with and a easy, normal, and hard modes to choose
from. In easy the mode the game is fairly easy (I can go through out the game
with out losing a single continue). In normal you can die a flew times for the
first time you play it but eventually you can beat it. In the hard mode, its pretty
hard, like if you think the boss in level 5 was easy try beating it on hard.
Game Play-Fun 10 out of 10
Contra 3 is defiantly fun too play alone and even more fun when you play
simultaneously with a buddy or sibling.
In the hard and sometimes normal mode its pretty frustration. Like if you
have been playing easy every time you play it, and you decide to play it in
the hard mode for the first time, you'll find yourself dying and wasting all
of lives and continues in the first level.
Replayability 10 out of 10
You will find yourself playing Contra 3 over, and over, and over.
Game Value 10 out of 10
Yes, with six intense level, with great sound, music, control, graphics, and
great replay value. I think its defiantly worth the price.
Overall 10 out of 10
Forget all those dumb Playstation Contra games, get this one.
