i actually thought Neo Contra kicked ass all over the map, and couldn't get into Shattered Soldier - and this is coming from a Contra Hard Corps fanatic

The more and more I see things about this game the less it makes any damn sense... Figures why it doesn't have the Contra brand on it.

To me it looks like any other generic run n gun, and not very Contra-esque aside from some recurrent art/enemies from the series. Gameplay looks meh. Why is the hero wearing a cape and mask?!

my interest in this game just plummeted. Maybe I'll pick it up in $5 sale if I am desperate for some fresh Contra...but there are enough solid entries in the series to go back to that there's really no need for me to get what appears to be a lackluster game.

Shit, this looks pretty disappointing. I hate the way he runs!

Not too excited for this, but I can see myself picking it up eventually just because I love me some run n guns.

It looks really... slow. Like the gameplay should be sped up 30%. The double jump is just silly. I'm hoping for a demo so I can at least try it out.
