    An absolute horrible and lazy port. First of all, no online play? Really? Second, WHY did we get the arcade versions of contra? Easily the worst versions of contra by far. Hit detection is all messed up, the jumping is awkward and clunky, bullets don't go where you want them to when aiming in all 8 directions, etc. This collection is ALSO really just 3 games with different regional portsAn absolute horrible and lazy port. First of all, no online play? Really? Second, WHY did we get the arcade versions of contra? Easily the worst versions of contra by far. Hit detection is all messed up, the jumping is awkward and clunky, bullets don't go where you want them to when aiming in all 8 directions, etc. This collection is ALSO really just 3 games with different regional ports for each one. It may SEEM like a good deal because you're getting "10 games" when really you only get 3 games and different regional ports which add literally NOTHING to the other versions, just your main characters are robots and not humans. The only good thing about this is that it has contra 3, and a digital scrapbook that's annoying to navigate. Very disappointed in this konami, I'm glad I'm getting a refund.

    Don't buy. Save your money. Get a good game like the crash team racing remake.

    Contra Anniversary Collection is a package that includes ten selected classic titles from the Contra franchise, part of Konami's "Anniversary Collection" series. It has an extremely fast gameplay, suitable for nostalgic players.

    While the Contra Anniversary Collection doesn’t have the same breadth of content featured in its gothic counterpart, fans of the franchise or anyone interested in some old-school videogamin’ with a capital V will find a lot to like here for $20. The people at M2 know what they’re doing when it comes to retro emulation, and they have delivered another worthwhile compilation. With these two collections and the recent announcements of both the TurboGrafx 16 Mini and Contra: Rogue Corps, perhaps there is hope for Konami yet…

    Contra Anniversary Collection is clearly aimed at the nostalgic gamer and regroups all the 2D games. The only drawback is the impossibility to customize the controls with are different among all games.
