    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.

    Rogue Corps is elevated at times by the fact that it's hard to truly screw up a twin-stick shooter.

    It'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.

    Pros
    -I like the upgrade system.
    -The Story is somewhat interesting so far.
    - A couple of the characters have pretty cool ideas behind them.

    Cons
    - The VFX look outdated.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.

    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 Full Review »
