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.
I loved it over Shockwave, the big boy units are so much fun and it is suprisingly balanced. New sounds are also adds to the athmosphere. Musics are amazing and fluctuates properly as battle unfolds. There are, though, a few balance issues and a requirement for AI enhancement especially for some of the generals.
I look forward to seeing new updates from this mode. I gotta say I really liked it as an old Generals fan. What I'd like to see more is as listed:
- Some little campaign with quality, with cool-*** units we can't find in skirmish matches. And cherished with some characters that actually has story... That **** would be so amazing
- A brand new faction (like Russia or Turkey as they were recently got too much popularity) just like ROTR did. I know it is toooooo much, but seeing all these varieties, man... It would definitely add colour.
