Almost unplayable at times and overrated.
Most of the game is at least kind of fun. Other parts are so bad it makes you want to kill the creator!
There should be a difficulty selection. One where you can choose infinite lives for those players who are not masochistic. Once you get to the Contra stage you have a ton of lives if you die but by that time you have suffered through most of the pain.
The only reason I even gave this title a 7 is because of how accurately they remade versions of old games. The only problem was the twist they put on the games as far as bosses went was terrible!
I can understand that if you make things too easy that people will get bored and complain but there is a point of annoying that will cause the opposite effect. That is this game. /End of rant;
