5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific old school run & gun gameplay. March 30, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation 2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After numerous delays, SNK has finally brought the Metal Slug Anthology to the PS2. This game has already been out for a few months on the Wii and for about a month on the Sony PSP, but the PS2 version is the best version to get of this game.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Metal Slug Collection April 6, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation 2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I once owned an AES copy of Metal Slug X in the late 90's which I paid over $300 brand new. I loved the whole Metal Slug series. Played it constantly at any arcade that featured the game. So when I heard late last year that a complete collection was coming out soon, I was pretty thrilled.

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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Gotta love the Slug May 3, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation 2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What the Metal Slug series has always lacked in innovation has always been made up for in terms of action, humor, and just plain old insane gameplay. Finally, SNK Playmore has compiled all of the Metal Slug games to grace arcades on one handy disc with the Metal Slug Anthology, and despite a few minor flaws, this package is a superbly sweet deal. All 7 Metal Slug games are here, including Metal Slug X and the excellent Metal Slug 6 (making it's debut on the consoles), along with a few extras like interviews and art galleries as well. And as any Metal Slug fan would come to expect, every game is challenging beyond belief. For newcomers though, there is the option to play with infinite lives, but purists can still get their fill here as well. There are a few noticeable flaws to Metal Slug Anthology however; most notably is the frequent load times that pop up during the game and the moments of slowdown and occasionally laggy controls. Despite all that though, Metal Slug Anthology still manages to satisfy in nearly every aspect, and although it would have been nice for SNK Playmore to include some more bonuses on the disc, this is a sweet pick up regardless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return To The Arcade. June 22, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 2|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been fan of the series for as long as I can remember. And every time I see the now "rare" arcade machine, I do not hesitate to jump in for a good'ol 25 cent blast.

Metal Slug Anthology is a compilation 7 of the greatest side scrolling shooting games ever made...In this collection you will find: METAL SLUG 1, METAL SLUG 2, METAL SLUG X, METAL SLUG 3, METAL SLUG 4, METAL SLUG 5, METAL SLUG 6. All still look great and play flawlessly.

Metal slug has been known for its quirks and funny bits. From nazis, to zombies to aliens, you'll shoot your way from stage to stage with a smile on your face. The humor is unique to this series, the mechanics of the game, as simple as they are, always stay fresh and have now for years be the one stop for a quick, relaxing gaming session. With its array of weapons and quite a few vehicles, under water and above stages, all of it, an entire package full fun and action.

Even younger players will enjoy this game. My wife's nephew, who is 12 yrs old and whom had never heard of this game before, loved it, and now every time he comes over, all he wants to play is, Metal Slug! The game,even after so many years, can still be the number one choice amongst new generation consoles/games.

If you are a fan of the series, do not hesitate to buy this game, at its current price, it's a great deal and a piece of gaming history. New comers, as stated above, of all ages, will enjoy every bit of this game. A side scrolling, chill out type of game that no other can compare. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Contra, who?
A lot more fun and entertaining than the Contra series. This won't get you frustrated, but after some time you may get bored of blowing up the same enemy types.
