    If you've never played a contra game, this is NOT for you. If you were rockin' it back in the 80's & are looking to relive some nostalgic awesomeness, then you are in for a retro hour you won't regret! This game looks like it was made somewhere between Super C and Alien Wars & feels like some lost gem that was made back in the day that you are just now playing for the first time.

  1. Gradius ReBirth was a bit too short and easy compared to previous Gradius games (especially because previous games in the series already were pretty short), but with Contra ReBirth, Konami has struck the balance just right: there's only five levels, but they're all decently sized and quite challening to get through.
  2. Konami forgets it's already made the ultimate Contra tribute - and it's not this bland rehash.
  3. If you love Contra games, chances are you already know that Contra ReBirth is worth the 1000 points. But if you’ve never played a Contra title, and want to see what the fuss is all about, Contra ReBirth is an outstanding example of why so many gamers consider Konami the masters of runnin’ and gunnin’.
