Contra is a total conversion mod for Command and Conquer: Zero Hour which gives the player 3 new generals and modify everything about the previous generals.
Contra adds the China Flame General, the GLA Assault General, and the USA Cybernetic General. China Flame General can train flamethrower troopers and upgrade his armor to be fire proof. GLA Assault can train the MiG-29 and can upgrade his marauder tanks to have stinger missiles on the back. The Cybernetic General can train cyborgs and tanks that look and act like spiders. The spider tank has dual cannons and can climb up mountains. The other generals have different changes with them, like the Nuke General has infantry that shoot very small nukes.
Contra adds a different type of game play to the table as well. Contra promotes a type of "rush" style. For example, the player can not buy vehicles or infantry that are extremely powerful until they are rank 3. This promotes players coming out of their bases to get their rank up faster. Contra also notifies the players when a different player's rank goes up, so everyone knows.
Review- [list] Fun Factor- Contra is extremely fun! Every game is a new experience and you'll never get bored. There's so much units and new buildings to play around with as well. The only thing from keeping this as a 10 in fun factor is the "no units before rank 3" thing. This makes it much harder to go and quickly test out all of the generals, the player actually has to play. Balance- The balance in Contra is discriminatory toward other generals. Other generals are just plain better then others. The nuke general for example, has long rang nuclear artillery that can take out any general quickly...well after rank 3. Creativity- Creativity is noticeable in Contra. All the stuff the new generals get are new and fun. The upgrades overlords can get, for example, are vast and fun to play with.
