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.

Ahhh Contra... Such an amazing mod. I am forced to give this an 8, because I'm a new member. I would definitely give this a 9.5 though. It adds many cool units and also adds 3 new generals. It makes each general awesome, giving each one a different personality and taste. I would certainly recommend this amazing mod.

The content is creative and well-designed, but it definitely takes away much of the semblance to the original Zero Hour.

What bothers me the most is that this mod took away something so fundamental as selling most buildings. It really removes several tactical options (like selling a building before it is captured) and forces the player to make permanent decisions about their base layout early in the game. While more realistic, I don't feel that realism is a dominant theme of this mod. That's not that realism is good or bad; the mod just seems to go towards both ends of the spectrum.

Also, the AI has some significant bugs, and oftentimes crashes will end an otherwise enthralling round (which, gameplay-wise, ultimately reduces to either an early rush or a tech rush depending on the length of the game).

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

Changing the voice for China and GLA ruins it for me, id prefer original+addons voices, then some of the maps are too small and need enlarging, the extra supplies limitation takes a bit off, but Generals challenge is fun and so is multiplay

Contra is great, but needs more variety.

To this day many of my friends have played Contra, and still it retains the wacky nature it once and still does.

Very fun and enjoyable! Give it a shot!
