    For all its perplexing, strange and sometimes outright defiant design decisions, I still had fun playing it. And that's what matters most, right? [Issue #43 – November/December 2019, p. 13SH]

    The game is a failed attempt to bring back this mythical saga. The title innovates with several game modes that are affected by its bad gameplay and input lag. Also noteworthy is its poor graphic section and its acceptable sound section.

    It's a shame because sometimes, even when I'm fighting the game, I'm enjoying myself.

    Evolving from the gun’n’run type to the shoot’em up genre, Contra Rogue Corps misses too many shots. Everything looks like it’s 10 years late, from visuals to gameplay mechanics and sound design.

    There’s an earnestness to Rogue Corps that makes it even sadder to see the game fail as it has. There have been updates since the game launched, but nothing thus far has been able to elevate Rogue Corps to the standard of quality set by past series installments. If Konami wants to modernize its franchises for future generations, the message should be clear: fans want what made those classics so endearing to begin with, not misguided radical redesigns.

    Contra: Rogue Corps has some good ideas. The twin-stick action could have worked if it hadn’t been so fussy and inaccurate, the choice of characters could have been great if they’d had a bit more variety and the deep customisation and online game modes could have added longevity if they hadn't been attached to such a drab and messy-looking game. In the end, nothing about this endeavour feels in any way related to the Contra games you know and love, and you’d do much better to grab the Contra Anniversary Collection at a much lower price – or try out one of the many excellent retro twin-stick shooters or side-scrolling action games already available on the platform.

    The worst Contra game ever made and an object lesson in how not to revive a classic franchise, especially as there are multiple unofficial homages that are far superior.

    It’s great to see some regular users positive reviews.
    I didn’t buy the game yet pending reviews.
    Although I thought the demo was very good.

    The critics are very picky and don’t see the consumers view on the game.

    Konami is Konami and Konami is the worst. F*ck Konami. F*ck Konami. Yet another corporate rape on a great franchise.
