    I think this game explodes perfectly the graphics capacity of the Game Boy Advance.

    Jo, I know that this game is almost the same as the snes contra game, but this serie is better because its has some new levels and because of the graphics.

  1. It uses outdated visuals with no changes, cobbles together levels which the GBA can handle in order to avoid problems, uses a lazy password system which is totally unwieldy, and continues to rely on a ten-year-old gameplay dynamic.
  2. Sure, it may look and sound decent, but only the most hardened of masochists will ever see the later stages, let alone complete them.
  3. Deep it isn’t, but there’s no denying that this is one of the most action-packed titles you’ll play on the GBA for some time.
