"Release Date: February 28, 1992 (JP) Publisher: Konami Developer: Konami Genre: Shooter - Third-Person The original Contra on the NES was tough, but it was a cakewalk compared to this tough-as-nails, scrolling shooter. Contra III delivers more of what the first game in the series game us - more explosions, more aliens, more weapons, and as previously mentioned, more difficulty. In fact your only reward for surviving through the game on Normal difficulty is the game telling you to beat it on Har"

My top 25 SNES Games (25 games items)

"Awesome shoot'em up, actually my favorite on the SNES. Why...well great co-op, ridiculous boss battles, sweet guns (except for laser), its a run and gun masterpiece! The music is ok, it could be better, and the game is fairly difficult to beat, other than that, its time to lock and load!"

"Another game I still play at least once every couple weeks. Cooperatively me and a buddy always try to get through it with continuing, and seeing how far we can go on one life. Just a quick hitter game but I got ahold of it when I was younger and have never let go. Not too far from original contra but enough added to it to make it addicting and fun still today. Up on my list solely because amount played."

Games I've Beaten At Least Once (635 games items)

"Beat April 9, 2011 The original Contra on the NES was tough, but it was a cakewalk compared to this tough-as-nails, scrolling shooter. Contra III delivers more of what the first one gave us...More explosions, more aliens, more weapons, and yes, more difficulty. The worst part? Beating the game on 'Normal' simply tells you to beat the game on 'Hard' if you want an ending...And beating the game on 'Hard' is the only way to fight the true final boss as well. Anyway, I prefer this one over the orig"

His armies are marching through the cities, across the lands, and with the intention of exterminating the human race like a bad case of fleas. Two new commandos, Jimbo and Sully, have come forth now to kick Red Falcon's ass and save what remains of the world from his hideous plans!"
