Contra 4 is a blast from the past with it's classic side-scrolling shoot em' up action! The game takes place once again on Galuga Island and your mission is to destroy the alien force known as Black Viper. This game is great and in my opinion is one of the hardest Contra games i've played in a while. It's got a multiplayer function as well as a Challenge Mode. The game is also packed with extras like the original Contra and Super C, unlockable characters, a historical Museum on each Contra, and even two comic books. This game is great fun and I'd would recommend it to anyone with a thirst for some shoot em' up.
