Contra is a freeware modification for Command and Conquer Generals: Zero Hour real-time strategy game. It's a big project started in 2004. It adds many new units as well as numerous new upgrades, new general's powers and buildings. It also adds new sounds, maps, bug fixes, enhanced graphics, and other effects, as well as three new generals. There are lots of people playing in multiplayer.
The mod contains a lot of interesting stuff and ideas, but the implementation could be more accurate. The mod does not have a solid "style" of models, some of them are good but the rest are just recycled vanilla models. Can't judge about the balance, but I definitely don't like the visuals.
So the mod was pretty fun and all, but needs more improvement than i thought of. Now in worldbuilder, you have access to get the boss generals. in skirmish, Eh..., not being mean, but it is missing the action. The other problem is the supply. Ok, the price of supplies, is TOO MUCH! literally, 1,000,000 dollars in challenge! it wouldn't be a challenge, if the price of the supplies is too high! just make it moderate, like at least 50,000 or less. Maps, the toughest of my decision. Now the maps are ok, not saying they are terrible, but needs more, and needs the techs more. That means, we need new Tech buildings, and awesome maps. Units, i guess it mostly ok, but, if you wanna reach to 10 or maybe, world record, we need Naval units, tech Units, Or extra Units, like having a down bar to reach the units. Generals super weapon, some generals needs their own superweapon. General Assault of GLA, should have a super weapon, like an artillery barrage. Sound and Texture, Needs sounds, not the low quality sound, but High quality, like an actual machine gun, Texture fits in great. That is all
IF you are free people,please release my review
Hi guys this is a beautiful Piece of work BUT something about the GLA teams,
WHY THE HELL DO THEY SPEAK FARSI-PERSIAN ??!!
I mean I really appreciate this mod,best mod I`ve ever played with rich texture and no lags BUT what are you guys trying to show by it?
THAT IRAN IS TERRORIST ??! AND IT`s HELPING terrorism ?! OR IT`S BRUTAL AND CRUEL TO ITS ENEMIES AND CREW BOTH ??! OR IRAN IS WEAK AND USES OLD AND USELESS WEAPONS ?! If people think about iran`s army that way just search google about iran`s army.
IRAN HAS BEEN THE TRUE VICTIM OF TERRORISM. TALIBAN HAS UNSECURED IRAN`S EASTERN BORDERS,INCREASED DRUG SMUGGLING AND MILLIONS OF DOLLARS COST FOR IRAN TO STOP THEM AT THE BORDERS OF AFGHANISTAN AND PAKISTAN.I guess it`s pretty clear who really made them.
AND ISIS AT THE WESTERN BORDERS,everybody knows what kind of savages they are,
killing and beheading innocent people to make a ugly and bloodcurdling face for ISLAM.IRAN has spent millions of dollars for saving Iraq and Syrian people and protect its borders.
I give 7 to this mod,not because it`s bad,but because it`s got unfair political Inspiration and purposes.
Let me see where to begin.
First it does not allow multi mod installation (i play shockwave and Rise of the reds) this is of cause a minor detail which i don't mind if the mod is fine.
unfortunately there is something about this mod that just seems childish.
So i tried several of the US generals before giving up (3 in total) and here is my impressions of them in game
First the Super weapons general:
He has to many supper weapons, i know he's a general for it but that doesn't mean he should have 4-6 different super weapons, 2 max or limit hes choices to a max of 2-3 of the 4-6 weapons he has, with unlimited super weapons on (if it off then allow him to use it all) but i mean all you have to do is turtle in and use you supers on you enemy he cant do **** cause you have the SDI which is a super weapon defense.
won by spamming the enemy base with super weapons.
Second i tried the Laser general.
Oh boy a disappointment. i was hoping for a advance laser general with lots of firepower. but i mean 1 paladin tank nearly lost to 1 GLA infantry unit. 0.0 call me a noob but that should never happen ever.
i won by spamming 50-60 recon drones. and swarming him.
but every damn second i played i felt he had nothing, and he does have nothing compared to the super weapon general.
Last i tried the Air General
again to much air stuff, i mean the Comanche and some king raptor and your done, attack with the Comanche's and defend with king raptors and whatever. i won before i even managed to look at level 3.
This mod have either to much so it becomes nonsense or to little so it becomes irrelevant.
i don't think this mod is ever going to be good IMO. and i am fearing its fan base are young people which only want a to play with no Micromanagement. just spam stuff and attack.
if any of the other generals a better it either means they are "worse", or just more OP.
i am sorry, but this game is nothing for me, if you like it then fine you can play it but you wont find me online.
truly a unique mod. There are absolutely stunning effects and the gameplay is awesome. Balancing is great too, you can beat anybody with any general if you think about how to counter them, I love it. I don't know how you can create one of the best mods ever for FREE but you guys should get paid something for this outstanding work. Please keep it up because I look forward to spending many days and night playing such a fantastic mod.
