Ratchet & Clank is a reboot of the series and a re-imagining of the first game. It’s also one of the greatest 3D platformers ever released.
Vanquish is a high speed, action-packed, cover based shooter and one of the best games of the seventh generation era of consoles.
Shock Troopers is an action packed run and gun shooter but, unfortunately, the PC version is marred by several technical issues thanks to DotEmu’s terrible emulation.
Neo Contra is far from being the worst game in the Contra series. It still maintains the same core gameplay as previous entries with one major change that is essentially the cause for all of the backlash.
Alien Breed is a dated, but still fun, game with a focus on maze-like levels and blowing away hordes of aliens.
A Contra game through and through, Hard Corps: Uprising is one of the best games in the series.
Gauntlet: Slayer Edition manages to maintain what the series is known for – grinding. But it manages to take too many steps back, eliminating replay value.
In keeping with the same core gameplay as previous games, Contra: Shattered Soldier is a brutally difficult fast-paced and action packed side scrolling shooter that will test your patience.
Gas Guzzlers Extreme is a combat racing game that’s really fun and intense and is only marred by frame rate problems.
Not a bad tactical shooter but flawed in many regards. Being a PlayStation 2, exclusive, it doesn’t quite reach the potential it aims for.
