Contra Rebirth

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Contra Rebirth

got the game, i like the fact that it support gamecube controller. i Like the say the story is told, but the gameplay just seems to dumbed down for a contra game, but its one of the best wiiware games of 09

i just downloaded Contra Rebirth, i hate that you cant just hold the shooting button and run at the same time, apart from that i think its a good game so far

I'd rather buy a Castlevania Rebirth. As long as it gets the spirit of the 16bit Castlevanias.

Never was much of a Contra person though I did like the one on the Mega Drive back in the day!

Anyone that doesn't download this and owns a wii just begs for more party game shovelware.

Please, don't  judge everyone else's taste by yours. This's definately the game I'd like to skip.

Exactly, disolitude.  People have had to tell you that several times already.  Everybody doesn't like what you like... in fact, most people don't and they don't have to.

Youre right. I should have worded it as "action game fans that are Wii owners that don't download this..."

As far as good action and shooter games on the wii, its slim pickins...



this is a good game if a bit on the short side and easy (for a contra game at least), would have been better if you only had a couple of continues and had a ranking system like the ps2 game to unlock the last level(s). this would have made it last much longer.

contra 4 on ds is better but this is still cool. just a shame it feels more like a tribute than a full game in a way. still a tribute to contra is better than most games, especially on the wii. def worth a download imo.

here's to more konami rebirth games, im looking at you castlevania!

Only 5 stages? Ouch

How much does this game cost in NA?

Edit: Nvmd, just checked IGN & they say it's $10.  Not terrible, i guess i may get it.  But I would rather have paid $15 for a longer game.

Go to controller settings, and set a button (I prefer B, since I can actually hold it done to stand still while holding the d-pad) for fix, and you'll be able to run and gun, as long as you aren't holding the fix button down.

Just downloaded it and it's awesome! I love the arranged music and 16 special effects (scrolling and rotation). Brings me back to the good old days!


@ Cougarman - I had the same problem before I switched to the Cube controller. The fact that I couldn't hold the shoot button and run almost broke the game for me. There is no fix button for the Wiimote, I don't think - so it's best to play with a Classic or Cube controller.

to fix your position with the wiimote you hold the shoot button, to run and gun you just repeatedly tap shoot.



@ retro - That's the problem... Tap shooting FTL in a Contra game!
