What Is The Best Contra Game?

The Best Contra Game?

To accompany our choice of the original Contra for our game of the month for the Together Retro Game Club, I thought it would be great to get the community’s opinion on how all the rest of the games in the Contra series rank.

I know it will be hard for some of you to choose just one, so I’ll let everyone choose two games out of the series.

Contra Force is getting no love!

Am I the only one that likes that game? I voted for Contra III and Super C, but Contra Force is definitely in my top 5. I know it’s not a true Contra game in any sense of the word, but it feels like an archaic predecessor to Metal Slug in alot of ways. It even has CPU playable assistant characters! that’s awesome! I’m so proud to own a real cartridge of Contra Force.

Contra 3 and Hard Corps are 2 of the best, but if I have to pick one I will have to with Contra 3, I’ve played that one more then any other game in my life, I’m still playing it, the game never gets old.

BTW, I’ve played every single Contra game, the only two I’m still playing are Contra 3 and Hard Corps.

Hi! After I saw the results from the voting and after reading many peoples comments I decided to make an article of what Contra game actually is the best one, Contra III: The Alien Wars for the SNES or Contra: Hard Corps. You will find the answer here:

I voted for the first Contra but I am refering to the arcade version even though the NES version is good fun too.
