Consider Yourself a Hero: A Retro NES Review of Contra

Contra Nintendo NES Video Game Review

Contra Intro:

Contra is a huge nostalgia game for me. I have many fond memories of sitting in a dark basement with a friend blasting away at this and Super C for hours. This is the first run-and-gun game I remember playing, and it was mind-blowingly fun, especially in co-op.

Super Mario Bros 3 Nintendo NES Review

Brief Intro:

In the pantheon of game franchises, there are very few single entries that can lay claim to bringing sweeping, long-lasting changes to the franchise. In a storied franchise such as Mario, this feat is even more impressive.

Nintendo NES Review Super C \ AKA Contra 2

Nintendo NES Review Super C

The Intro:

Super C is a throwback to the glory days – when men were men, and video games were punishingly, brutally difficult. Super C, the North American NES version of Super Contra, was released in 1990. It features the same muscle-toting, cigar smoking badass heroes that everyone loves.

Jordan Vs Bird Intro:
 

Taking arguably the two biggest NBA stars at the time, and putting them together in a basketball game, only makes sense.  You have Larry Bird from the Boston Celtics, whom is the best out-side shooting forward in the game.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project, Nintendo NES Review

NES TMNT III

Intro:

I’ve certainly realized why Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3 was voted the best game on the Nintendo NES in 1992. This release of the turtles game was similar to Turtles II: The Arcade Game. It featured side-scrolling action.

Snow Brothers - A Silly Concept, with a High asking price....

Nintendo NES Snow Brothers Review

Snow Brothers Intro:

Definitely a goofy game, the gameplay is very similar to that of Bubble Bobble.

The overall game isn’t very hard just long and a little redundant. You have to complete 50 stages in the game, with a boss battle after each 10. The bosses are some crazy looking reptilian type characters.

My fingers are still hurting after playing this little gem last night. This game came out shortly after the Batman Movie released in 1989 with Jack Nicholson as the Joker and Michael Keaton as Batman. This maybe one of the hardest nes games ever made.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II - The Arcade Game Review

Nintendo NES Turtles 2

Turtles II: The Arcade Game Intro:

The turtle’s franchise took an enormous turn for the better with TMNT II: The Arcade Game. Don’t get me wrong, the first turtle’s game on the NES was good, but very hard. With the turtle’s in the arcade already, a port to the NES was all this series needed.

Nintendo NES Game Review of Sword Master

Nintendo NES Sword Master

Sword Master Intro:

The title of the game "Sword Master" to me sounds a lot like a classic dungeon crawling rpg. Surprising it is not; the game is centered around on your sword welding character. Sword Master is your typical side-scroller action adventure game. The goal of the game is to fight thru various levels, trying to defeat the evil wizard and demon.
