Your f2p experience won’t be that great, I’d say you need to spend at least 200 US dollars to have a decent time. (I have) Various bugs cause issues, devs do fix them after about 2-3 weeks so it’s not so bad. Skip this if you don’t have money, the North American version of this game is severe lacking in content (no seasonal skins) translation issues, etc.
There has been so many bugs in the game recently and people are tired seeing major things in the game not working as intended. It seems like they don’t quality test updates before they come out. The new battle pass just came out but bugged and glitched. Somehow it also bugged the daily missions and rewards. Also for the past two weeks, people couldn’t log in, something that isn’t supposed to be there is there (you can’t interact with it, it’s just there), a major function for equipment upgrades was bugged from its release, etc. It is a fun game, just not with all these issues and bugs. Especially for people who pay for the game, it seems like a waste if everything just stopped working. If there isn’t a solution to major things like this the potential of this great game idea is just thrashed.
Im not supporting this: -Exaggerated micro transactions, -Energy system, -Privacy concerns.
A true reimagined classic! I loved Contra & Super C on my Nintendo as a kid. This game is fantastic, controls are seamless, lots of weapons and new features never seen before in Contra and the story is just good old fashioned fun. Lots of extras and you don’t have to spend a dime to progress or enjoy the game. Paying just like any mobile game gives you extra loot, upgrades, weapons, characters etc but not essential to enjoy the game. Yes you need energy to play but they give you lots of energy to play the game when it’s fully charged.
It’s super fun
Contra 3 Alien wars was one of my all time favs and this brings me back. A blast so far
My game was saved on “area hunter” server. I wanted to play my game again tonight so I went back on the server to start game and to realized I lost everything!
This game is epic, all the old with some nice modern tweaks. Love all the characters making a return as well. My only complaint would be, there is no classic Rey skin? Sure miss that tuff ‘’Space Marine’’ vibe. He’s to pretty boy now for my once favourite character. The gameplay itself rocks though. Thanks for reviving such a classic.
For as much as I like to win, it gets pretty dumb when 3 players with S graded weapon are matched up against 3 players with C weapons. It not only happened once, but 3x in a row, and I had to stop to write this review. Though ranked match can be somewhat balanced, I have been matched with a player at lvl 80 while I was lvl 45-50. Paid heroes will surely destroy you as they do way more damage than the free ones. I’ve managed to get to Platinum I and had players just letting me kill them to lose ranking to get some easy wins against lower lvl players. Another thing that annoyed me was that I started the Tournament by mistake and wasn’t able to cancel (couldn’t play at the time), so I just got a loss and had to wait for the following day. The game really banks on nostalgia, which is the reason why I played it, but as a P2W I don’t really see myself sticking to this game. Will just be one of those, spend money on a hero and the next month there a much better one. No, thank you. Games need to find better ways to hook player other than P2W models.
Contra isn’t a pay to win game. This is. Not sure why they called it Contra Returns.
1-This is game p2w for sure like others but you need skills because game will match you player with similar strength. 2-They need to open way for medium spender player to F2Play by taking out energy functions which drags players so badly. 3-I know developers need supplies to keep going but putting a price on everything is like going to grocery store. Which is ridiculous bad. We players understand spend to unlock new characters or guns but you have spend for playing is out of game policy. 4- I recommended developer to remove energy function to open the road for Grinding for low - high spenders players. If not I will tell for sure the community will never grow. Mock my words Thank you
