5.0 out of 5 stars CONTRA HARD CORPS FOR THE SEGA GENESIS
From start to finish, Contra Hard Corps will knock your socks off! This is the first and only Sega Genesis port of Contra, and my personal favorite. While comparable to Contra 3 Alien Wars, it holds up nicely on the Genesis. With 4 selectable characters with thier own special abilities, this game provides great gameplay and hours of fun. The graphics are great, and...

3.0 out of 5 stars Game works, Wrong language (Russian, not English)
Game works fine. Cartridge plastic is significantly bent, but not damaged. I'm not sure how that's possible. It's not cracked. It just looks like it was repackaged incorrectly. It worked fine in the Sega Genesis 3. I was worried that the plastic would cause strain and break the cartridge. The main issue is the text is all in Russian, so I can't read anything. This...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite Sega games of all time!, July 17, 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Contra Hard Corps (Video Game)
Let me first say that this game is hard! It is not for the faint of heart (if I may be so cliché). The game is non stop action. You will be shooting, firing, jumping, sliding, and bombing throughout. Hard Corps follows the format of running through rampant areas (where you will be firing incessantly to destroy animals, robots, etc) with a final boss showdown to finish the level.

Some positives about the game:

1. It has two players and four different characters to choose from (Two humans, one robot, and one wolf/beast/cyborg hybrid type creature).
2. You can obtain different powers for different characters (A,B,C,D), and also bombs.
3. The story and action are exciting and uniquely challenging.

Cons:

1. The games is very hard for newbies. When I was kid it took my brother and I a long time to get the hang of it and make it past even the first level.

2. You have to know how to play this game to have fun. You should know how to slide (which I believe is down + B+C) and use stationary rotation shooting (pressing A+B and then making sure to press it again to be able to shoot and run at the same time). You have to know what's coming to be able to fine tune your game and make it until the end. But if you are determined you can do this.

P.S. Check out this online manual to help you with the ins and outs of the game:

I've always loved Contra from the very beginning when it came out on Nintendo. Now on Sega Genesis, this game beats all!! It is A LOT of fun and it also has extra characters. It's fast paced and full of non stop action! Overall rating for this game-to the moon and back! That's how good and fun this game is!

Game works fine. Cartridge plastic is significantly bent, but not damaged. I'm not sure how that's possible. It's not cracked. It just looks like it was repackaged incorrectly. It worked fine in the Sega Genesis 3. I was worried that the plastic would cause strain and break the cartridge. The main issue is the text is all in Russian, so I can't read anything. This should've been called out, since I would've ordered a different copy, as well as the bent plastic. It's bad enough that it looks like it won't fit into the console. But it works!
