    Despite my initial hesitation, I found myself really digging Contra: Rogue Corps. My fears that it looked like a cheap, grody-looking, nothing game trying to cruise on a classic IP ended up being completely unfounded.

    The more I played Contra: Rogue Corps, the more I could recognize its flaws yet at the same time, I was strangely transfixed by those fleeting moments of being an action badass with the right weapons, only for my dreams to be swiftly dashed as those weapons overheated and I was mobbed to death by giant alien bugs.

    A game that arrives a generation late. Improvable in all aspects except his cooperative and his thug style.

    The addition of a couch-play co-op mode with its own story is nice, but the procedurally generated maps lack the finesse of the main story. Rogue Corps is an odd release. It’s not Contra enough for fans but just about fun enough for the casual shooter crowd. [Issue@168, p86]

    If you expect a game that respects the beginnings of the saga, you won't find it here. Against ROGUE CORPs is a shooting video game that at the technical level is a disaster, it lacks a more polished and precise control, as well as a huge swing in terms of weapons. Nor does it stand out in terms of enemies and scenarios, both things are repeated too much, so much that sometimes one does not know if he has exceeded the level or if or is doing back. While it has certain interesting and fun moments, it is a title that is not worth it at all. If you want to experience the Contra saga at its best, you have a pack of Contra games that you can buy from the PS Store.

    Although it may be a very bad Contra entry, Rogue Corps isn't a total wash. The upgrade system provides decent customization, and the gameplay is serviceable, but far from extraordinary. It's just not what you want from the long-buried franchise.

    Contra: Rogue Corps is a game that is so bad, I can’t recommend anyone buy it for any price.

    Great game that combines all the best things from all other Contra, multiple characters with unique weapons like hard corps, run n gun actionGreat game that combines all the best things from all other Contra, multiple characters with unique weapons like hard corps, run n gun action with multiple points of view like contra legacy of war and C the contra adventure and of course you have the aliens, mutants and other aberrations just like shattered soldier except not that disgusting , Nakazano the original producer of the Contra Series really outdone himself, this is the real Contra EVOLUTION, please give it a try at least before judging im sure if you look beyond the nostalgia googles of the classic side scroller contra games you ll see an amazing game Expand

    This makes it rather difficult to judge Contra Rogue Corps. But fans don't really do anything wrong with that part. The plot is neat and tidyThis makes it rather difficult to judge Contra Rogue Corps. But fans don't really do anything wrong with that part. The plot is neat and tidy and the different characters with their skills make you feel good for a while. The controls take some getting used to and also the camera is annoying at some points in the game. In multiplayer mode there is a lot of fun, but only at home. Namely, in the online version there are simply too few players on the road. Those who would like to play together should give "Contra Rogue Corps" a chance. Alone, the title is a bit thin.

With re-releases in the form of collections of their classic IPs and excitement for a new Contra, this could have been the start of a revamped Contra.

    I personally find the game enjoyable, however this does not take away from the fact that the game is a sluggish, lazy uninspired product. It felt like there was some good ideas by people who appreciate what they are doing, but they probably had a budget and time limit. And let's not forget you're weapon overheats.... Some reviewer said "run and gun action" of Hard Corps, no Konami shill it is not.

Maybe there isThe game sucks and the overheating guns should not be in any Contra game. can see how bad this game is but I love it.... Maybe there is something wrong with me .lol. I have a soft spot for twin stick shooters so I'll give it a 5. I only recommend this game for people who love twin stick shooters and if you are a hardcore Contra fan who doesnt mind overheating guns.. Expand

    Complete rubbish, looks like an OG xbox game but still runs at crappy 60 Fps. What worse is it claims to be 4K on the enhanced console but isComplete rubbish, looks like an OG xbox game but still runs at crappy 60 Fps. What worse is it claims to be 4K on the enhanced console but is 720 p at best. Also claim to have HDR support, but it dose nothing. The tone , characters world , everything is stupid on bland.
    This is bargain basement crap and is an embarrassment to the Contra name
