Contra 4 for the DS is out!?
Let me know what you think. I'm definitely going to pick this up tomorrow...
Xbox Live: TheWalt2
The reviews I've read so far basically said "For Contra fans... ONLY Contra fans." It's as old school as you can get. I can't wait to buy it.
Makes me want to buy a DS, along with the Castlevania titles! My 2 favorite franchises..

When you say "old school," does that mean that the game uses the d-pad/buttons only? Or are there stylus controls wedged in there? I wonder what the touch screen equivalent of the "konami code" is

No touch screen controls for the gameplay. It's strictly d-pads/buttons. You might have to actually press Start too.
What disappoints me so far is the lack of multiplayer for the unlockable games. I was really hoping they would modify those games with co-op.
Got my copy at lunch today... and yep, it's Contra!
Couple of minor changes (like the grappling hook), but overall it's true to the original.
Fine with me. I like having a choice of which to use (FFIII does it right... Zelda... bah!).
Oh my... this... this looks awesome!

I'm curious, but I was never any good at Contra. Always had to resort to the code.
Fire bad. - GameGuru
I know I'm just a girly man, but I'm having a tough time getting past stage 4 on easy. That boss on the ICBM, then the riding the ICBM sequence, and then the boss after the ICBM... it's a tough gauntlet to run.
edit: ooh, now I made it all the way to the huge boss at the end of stage 7. Too bad I only had 5 lives left.
I already mentioned this game, and a few others, in my recent catch-all thread FYI.
