When Independence Day came out it was remarked that the lasers blowing up the White House and such might have been ripped off from Contra 3's opening cut scene, with the Red Falcon's ugly visage appearing over a swirling cloud and a laser blast blowing up the opening city. At least we now know who to thank for the most overused visual effect in sci-fi/fantasy movies!!!
At the end of that one boss level, when you kill the boss and the triumphant "dunununuh!" music plays over a freeze frame of some dude pointing a gun at a monster, my buddy would always get right up to the screen and belch. Every illustration of the two Guile-lookalikes you played as in this game had them with hilarious gritted-teeth expressions. Don't forget the amusing line of dialogue "let's attack aggressively." Oh well, at least they didn't rip off an old Terminator still photo of Michael Biehn like Metal Gear did!!!!
