Game description: All of the action and adrenaline of the Contra series comes to the PlayStation 2 with Contra: Shattered Soldier. This time, you can carry three weapons--machine gun, flamethrower, and grenade launcher--as you battle enemies either solo or cooperatively with a friend. Massive, screen-filling boss characters do everything they can to keep you from proceeding through the multiple action-packed missions, while environmental threats such as swarms of bugs, aggressive enemies, and alien encounters keep you on your toes.
In A.D. 2642, Earth remains scarred from previous alien conflicts as environmental problems grow beyond humanity's control. 80% of the planet's population was completely devastated by a malfunctioning hyper-magnetic weapons grid during development. Bill Rizer, the hero of the Alien Wars, was held responsible for the incident, as well as for murdering his partner, Lance Bean, who reportedly tried to stop him. He was given a sentence of 10,000 years in cryogenic prison.
Shattered Soldier returns to the classic game system employed by the series prior to Contra: Legacy of War. The game is played entirely in 2D from a side-view perspective, but with fully polygonal graphics, although some segments in which the player rides a snowboard or a motorcycle are viewed from a front or rear-view perspective.
