Sep 25, 2019It's almost impressive just how wrong this game is. As a Contra game, Rogue Corps almost goes out of its way to be completely inept. As a general shooter, its sub-par in every way...Slow, repetitive, and ugly as hell, Contra: Rogue Corps is embarrassing even by Konami's low standards, and this is all before we get to the weapons overheating.

Not good for a Contra game, not bad for an indie game.
There clearly wasn't a real budget put into this game but I am having some fun with it anyways.
-I like the upgrade system.
-The Story is somewhat interesting so far.
- A couple of the characters have pretty cool ideas behind them.
- The VFX look outdated.
- The controls are not the smoothest when it comes to aiming.
- Overkill with the cursing in the dialogue.
- AN OVERHEAT NERF ON THE GUN?? IN A CONTRA GAME?? REALLY??
- They called it Contra.
I think I speak for most people when I say I would have another sidescroller Contra. Topdown just doesn't feel right for Contra. NeoContra was a pretty fun game but not compared to the old sidescroller run n gun games.
The character models aren't bad but the art style just doesn't look right. I get that they were trying to make more challenging with the overheat function but I'd rather they just nerf the weapons power a bit, plus the twinstick aim doesn't feel very precise so that adds its own challenge already.
I still need to finish more of the game before i find anymore pros or cons.
Maybe there are some awesome boss fights to be had later on that can get my rating for this game up a bit.
I think the 0 scores are unfair but the 10's are unrealistic too. As of right now all i can give it is a 6.… Full Review »
Sep 25, 2019Great 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… Full Review »
