    Definatley not the NES version but a great arcade title none the less. This is what old school shooters were like.....Hard.

    Single-player gameplay is great, but with online bugs and multiplayer bugs, you may want to buy a 12 pack of Keystone light or five frosties from Wendy's instead of throwing down on this unfinished game.
  2. A solid addition to Xbox Live Arcade, but it is simply just not the version of the game most of us will expect and prefer. Instead of delivering the NES build of the game, we are given the coin-op version that is designed to take quarters from your pocket, meaning it’s quite difficult, and without the thirty-lives code it gets frustrating very quickly.
  3. This is an accurate emulation of the arcade version of Contra. Unfortunately, you're probably not looking for the arcade version of Contra.
