At first I really had my doubts about the quality of this game because SNK Playmore chose not to make an arcade version first. Arcades are great quality-assurance mechanisms because machines are expensive and they need to be fun enough that people will continue to put money in them.

I'm pleasantly surprised to find that not only is this game great, but I would say it is the best Metal Slug since 3. This takes the refreshing mechanics of Metal Slug 6 and adds excellent, always fun level design and fantastic bosses.

Naysayers will be quick to point out that the graphics are grainy because of down scaling and the backgrounds are uninspired. Personally, I stopped noticing or caring about the graininess 10 minutes into the game. They're certainly not bad enough to impact how fun it is.

SNK Playmore has restored my faith in them with this game. I would even go as far to say that it's my favorite game of the year.

+Seven stages of addictive gameplay
+Unique art style
+In spite of doing the same thing over and over, it still manages to hold its own in the genre of run and gun
+A good challenge
+Replay value


-It's over in a flash with only 7 stages and yet there aren't a whole lot of extras
-There's no multiplayer, which is something that every Metal Slug game ought to have

The Metal Slug series is one of the kings of the run and gun. It's got fantastic and addictive gameplay and an art style that can't be beat. Metal Slug 7, the exclusive DS offering, is the latest in the series. While it isn't the best, it holds true to what has made Metal Slug such a good game series over the years.

Metal Slug 7 has you trumping through seven levels in classic run and gun fashion. In each level you'll find vehicles you can pilot (called Slugs) that can help you out. You'll also rescue hostages who will grant you weapons like Rocket Launchers or other special kinds of guns. Metal Slug 7 plays no different than the other games in the series. One of the strengths of the series has been its accessibility. If you've played any of the other Metal Slug games, you'll be right at home. If you've never played a Metal Slug game, you're still in good hands. It is not a difficult game to learn by any means. That doesn't mean Metal Slug 7 is not a challenge. It's a big challenge, as most games in the run and gun genre are. At the very least, Metal Slug 7 isn't quite as challenging as say... the Contra series. It's actually not too hard after a while and you'll have plenty of credits to help you out.

There are a couple of hitches with Metal Slug 7, however.

I have never been able to say no to Metal Slug, and I never will either. That's why I was nothing but excited when I heard that Metal Slug would be making its debut on the DS with Metal Slug 7, and needless to say, if you're a fan of the series and own a DS, you know that you need to own this. The run and gun experience of the arcade smash has managed to be perfectly shrunken down for the DS, and there's virtually no slowdown with all the action happening. It's a sheer blast to play through, which is what one would expect from a Metal Slug game, and it offers everything that has made the series so fun to begin with, as well as a few new Slugs to boot. That being said, Metal Slug 7 isn't without it's flaws. Namely the fact that it won't take you too long to blast through the game, and other than the standard Arcade Mode and the Combat School Mode, that's pretty much it. There's no online or co-op (one of the true pleasures of Metal Slug is playing with a pal), and no use of the touch-screen, or any of the DS' other capabilities either. Still, hardcore Metal Slug fans will find much to admire here, and if you are and you own a DS, Metal Slug 7 is a must own.

Metal Slug 7 contains only 7 stages. For those that think the point of a Slug game is just in finishing the game, you will be disappointed in the fact that you can probably blow through the game in an hour or 2, tops. You should also remember that the original Slug games were designed for the arcades, where having a game much longer than this was an arcade operator nightmare, especially if someone could finish the game on a single quarter!

For those that grew up with the Slug games and are playing it with the same mindset that they likely had when they originally had... obtain the highest score you can without having to continue. This makes the game infinitely more difficult. And how can people tell you've had to continue? If your score has a number in the 2 furthest number slots in your score (say you have 100,003 points, that 3 indicates you've continued 3 times), then you've continued. You could, of course, game the system and have to continue 100 times, but that would be more time consuming than actually playing the game!

Metal Slug 7 is throwback to a time when games were about having fun and mashing buttons. It doesn't have complex control schemes (though having different close up attacks based on your button presses are entering the realm of needing to know too much... shooters like this are called shooters for a reason... they shouldn't require a large amount of thinking) and the graphics are 100% 2D. Glorious, fluid 2D. And many of the animations were taken directly from their SNK/Playmore grandparents, the original Neo Geo Slug games. The animation was fluid then and it remains so.
