Title: Contra (6th Review)
Rom Player: NEStron
Reviewer: Reverend Jiggy Sock

Synopsis: Remember when you used to play Contra 2-player, and your friend would grab a powerup that they didn't need. I'm sure anyone who played the game had that experience, and they all reacted the same way. They screamed to their friend that they needed that, and then usually threw the controller to the ground and left in a hurry.

Ah, Contra. One of the best multiplayer experiences on the NES.

Even with all the ruined friendships Contra created, it was still one of the best games on the NES. There was nothing quite like blasting your way through screen after screen of the same soldiers over and over again. But 1-player wasn't what made the game famous, it was the 2-player. If you had the game and two controllers, everyone you knew would want to play. There's simply no rival in multiplayer experience on the NES.

Simply put, if you haven't played Contra before, there's something wrong with you. Get the game, get a friend, and then shout and scream at each other as you both keep picking up the wrong powerups.
