Think of Metal Slug as Contra on steroids/crack and you'll have a proper understanding of what all of these games are about. For the most part, you run to the right side of the screen laying waste to everything in your past while rescuing hostages and sometimes getting access to vehicles called Metal Slugs to cause even more damage. Most of the game is spent running and shooting, but they also spice things up with some shooter type segments in which you're in a flying vehicle of some sort (and at one point a small submarine type thing).
Basically, you get all 7 proper Metal Slug games on one disc (well, really 6 as Metal Slug X was a re-working of part 2 that fixed most of the extreme slow down problems of Metal Slug 2), all are emulated almost perfectly from the original SNK Neo-Geo system ROM's. The only slight downside is that there is some in game loading when you finish one area of a level and are heading to the next area. The game will pause for about 1 to 3 seconds (though the music will keep going) while the game loads the next area. While some purists will decry this and say that it ruins the game, it only breaks up the breakneck pace just the very slightest and was kind of unavoidable.
The games are slightly letterboxed with black bars on the left & right side of the TV screen to approximate the original arcade screen size.
As for the games themselves, I found them to be arcade perfect ports all the way disregarding the slight load times.Read more ›
My copy of Metal Slug Anthology finally arrived last week. The collection features every MVS Metal Slug game that was released in the arcades, as well as the home Neo-Geo system. Along with the 7 Metal Slug games, the collection also features a few extras such art, music, and interviews.
Aside from some loading, the action is just as intense and frantic as you remembered from the arcades. All the big pixel explosions and huge bosses are there as expected.
Here are all the games:
Metal Slug 1
Metal Slug 2
Metal Slug X
Metal Slug 3
Metal Slug 4
Metal Slug 5
Metal Slug 6
Metal Slug 6 features different game-play features such as the ability to switch between stored weapons. The graphics have been overhauled. The music and voice also sound different.
Overall, this is quite an exceptional collection. The ability to own every Metal Slug game on one disc for around $40 is quite a deal, especially when you consider that these games originally went for $300 or more each on the Neo-Geo system. Also, you get a neatly sized package versus the original huge carts.
If you enjoyed any of the Metal Slug games, I suggest that you do not pass up this awesome collection. Rocket Louncher!
I remember when I first saw Metal Slug 1. Me and a friend of mine were at the bowling alley when we first saw and played it. It blew our minds. This game had us talking for days about how cool we thought it was. About all the cool stuff we saw and experienced while playing it. We couldn't wait to go back and play it again. It soon became our favorite game and couldn't play it enough. As time went on, I'd hear rumors of it appearing on this console or that one and I remember the feeling of wanting to do or pay anything to have it. Then the sequels came out in the arcades and I remember how fun it was to see the new versions, see the differences and have so much fun playing them. Well now they're all here.
These games are so fun and unique. The art style is so original and ineteresting (you gotta hand it to SNK for sticking with the 2D sprites in their games),there's really nothing quite like it. The idea is simple, take one or two soldiers through various stages fighting pseudo WWII German soldiers, zombies, and other various creatures. At the end of each stage are some of the funnest and most original boss battles you'll ever see. Along the way are a great variety of weapons and vehicles to use to destroy everything. Machine guns, flame throwers, shotguns, grenades, rocket launchers, tanks, planes, and submarines are just some that come to mind. The animations for the stages are great and characters are hilarious. It's violence but in such a comical and semi-realistic way. The controls are great on all of these games as well as the unique graphics and sound.Read more ›
