Electric Playground: Contra 4 Review

Those with weak stomachs and/or heart problems have been warned. Casual gamers, stay far away from this one, while you hardcore gamers should strap on your combat boots and get excited: games are hard again.

• Final two stages are only accessible on harder difficulties
• Easy mode acts as a walkthrough/tutorial, getting new players used to the game
• Good treasure chest of bonus features for fans
• Well done third-person on-rails sequences
• Grappling hook helps improve level designs
• It's classic Contra

• Both players need a copy of the game to play co-op
• Doesn't take full advantage of DS hardware
• Absence of the epic dual gun-toting stance from Contra 3
