Good game, but it took me over an hour to beat the first level...

Excellent game, but incredibly old-school. It will not hold your hand, instead it will slap you silly and you will return to it, time and time again. Because it is that good.
Thank you CAG, for making grad school more enjoyable (and cheap).

Nice...I also saw this at gamestop NEW for 19.99. So for those who dont want to pay shipping and want the game earlier, go to gamestop, or if you hate gamestop just get it off of amazon...haha

According to Gamestop, this is a price drop. New regular price?

Definitely worth $20. I love playing the game, and the challenges are just as addicting if not more so than the actual game.

Anyone who was a gamer back when the original Contra came out and you used to actually go to arcades to play the "real" video games absolutely needs to get this.

Great deal. Jump on this if you don't have it yet. The game kicks ass

What the others say about the difficulty is true: you will take a beating

Ditto. I'll probably get it at EB assuming the one near me has a sealed copy around.

I loved the customer review posted at EBgames.com, sounds like some little kid who got his ass beat by the game.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

I believe the original Contra and Super C are both unlockable in Contra 4 as well. So really, you're getting 3 games for $20. And it's CONTRA!

I'll probably grab this at Gamestop to avoid S&H.

Yeah, awesome! I know C4 is cool but I mainly want it for Contra. I'm just doubting I will have the ability to unlock it. Now I just have to think of a filler to get free shipping. GS's inventory tracker says none of the stores around me have it in stock :cry: Guess I can do some calling just to check.

I just got a Wii points card as filler since I couldn't find anything else. No tax and the free shipping made it worth it.

According to their site, it is the same price at Circuit City (universal price drop?), so you might want to look there (and maybe Best Buy) also.

Best Buy usually does price drops on Mondays, and that coupon is good through Monday :)
