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.
I know i made a review without speaking my mind so here it is. Contra is simply one the best mods for Zero Hour i've ever seen. It has this new ranking system that means as you earn general points new technologies become avalable. The standard generals are here and 3 new ones. Algrin Ironhand focuses on using robots and mechs.(When you play as or against him it will feel like Terminator.)The next general is Huang Li Bao, a general who uses fire and thermite to blow up his opponents.(He's like a napalm general) Then we have the GLA assault general, i forget the mane but he faction is like a jack of all trades kind of feel. The other generals have been greatly enhanced with plenty of new toys. The models and skinning for this mod is top notch and id the voice acting as well. I found myself laughing at some of the units on what they say when you order them to do something. Each General has a 'Super Unit that is heavily armored(not always the case) and has massive firepower. However these units come at rank 5 and at the cost of fighting you will have to wait until that level is reached. Overall this mod brings some great visuals, sounds, and effects into the game. We are all waiting for 008 to come out and only time will tell. If you want more check out the 008 previews in the video section that describe the 3 factions and each general.
This mod is one of the best, but there is always room for improvement, like fixing common errors (game crash errors, mismatch and lag), though some errors can´t be helped, there must be a way to make the mod so it minimizes the errors, if the Contra team can manage that, they truly have earned themselves a 10, as this mod is nothing if the game can´t be played.
