★★★★ This side-scrolling shooter has play­ers run­ning from left to right, blast­ing any­thing that moves. It’s good, old-school fun, but less pun­ish­ing than other ti­tles in the Con­tra se­ries. This is thanks to the new Ris­ing mode that lets play­ers earn points to up­grade their char­ac­ter as they play. Ear­lier lev­els can be re­played to boost health or weaponry if the chal­lenge be­comes too steep. Great fun. Out now.
