Urgh. This game is nasty. Really nasty. I never liked Contra (or rather, Probotector as it was bizarrely called over here in the UK) on the NES, and Super Contra (Super Probotector) on the SNES left me colder than cold too, so I wasn’t really expecting much.
Which is just as well, as it’s crap. I’m just glad I didn’t buy it, as I normally buy the XBLA games without trying them, and it’s only because of the new feature of automatically downloading trial versions that I didn’t. Phew, eh?
