Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Metal Slug X sets the stage for you to save the world. A power-hungry group of renegades has teamed up with aliens, and together they are planning to assume control of the planet. You are a one-man army whose mission is to squash the rebellion. There are four characters to choose from: Marco, Eri, Tama, and Fio. At the beginning, you've only got a gun and a few grenades, which isn't going to be enough. But as you rescue hostages, new weapons like rocket launchers, flamethrowers, bouncing shots, Molotov cocktails, and a shotgun are at your disposal. In addition to new weapons, you will also have access to a variety of vehicles including the Super Vehicle-001 mini-tank, Camel Slug, Slug Flyer, and Slugnoid, each packed with special weapons and abilities. The world is counting on you to stop the terrorist threat in Metal Slug X.

5.0 out of 5 stars And people thought 2d was dead.... May 31, 2001
By A Customer
SNK have made many masterpieces, Metal Slug, Metal Slug2, King of Fighters 94-2000, and the Fatal Fury series. None of these games are 3d, why? because SNK obviously believe that beautifully hand drawn, and wonderfully playable games are better than either blocky 3d graphics or all graphics no gameplay games. Metal Slug X is no exception to SNK's line of Metal Slugs. The graphics are absolutely fantastic! I just saw a review saying the graphics are very basic, tjis person has no idea. It's 2d, so what! There is so much detail thrown into the backdrops alone that you could play the game over and over just to see new stuff in the scenery. The characters are also fantastic, they have fluid motion and lots of detail. The enemy soldiers have so many little animations, they knfe/gun/grenade you and then point and laugh until you drop down again with a Machinegun, at which point they scream (with a true look of fear on thier faces) and try to run away. The bosses are massive and truly impressive like the battleship on tank tracks, after destroying the guns the front of the ship opens to reveal a MASSIVE GUN which lauches shells the size of your character! It then EJECTS THE SHELL CASE!
Enough on the graphics, theres great platforming in there too. There's also a variety of vehicles. The tank, the Plane, the Jumping mech thing, and the Camel (used for mowing arabs down in the desert). These coupled with the fast paced gameplay and the chaos on screen make for an awesome game. And if you complete it you'll love the ending.
There's the usual extras too, the art gallery and the extra missions. SO BUY IT, NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wicked 2d Contra style action! April 13, 2001
After playing the import copy of this game I would just like to let the world know what a fantastic 2d action shooter this game is. If your a fan of great colorful 2d animation, buy Metal Slug, buy it NOW! Not only can you ride in tank and a plane but you get to also ride a camel! A CAMEL!! How messed up is that? Anyways if your a fan of great control, and games that are actually fun, this is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best 2-D shooter platform! Better than Contra SS October 11, 2003
By A Customer
This game is amazing! The first time I played this game was at a friend's house on Sega Saturn. I remember this game from the neo geo arcade machines too. At any rate I was looking for some old school 2-D shooter platform games and picked up Contra: Shattered Soldier. Contra SS is a horrible game and I was not happy. Then I remember Metal Slug and after some online research I wanted it. I had to call 8+ gamestop till I FOUND ONE! This game is based on Metal Slug 2 with few extra twists.
The graphic is totally awesome, just like the arcade! Even for today's standard, the graphic is still very good! The hand drawn cartoon animation is unique and beautiful. This game has better graphics than Contra SS, seriously. Due to the limited memory of PS ONE, the explosions were degraded to "big pixels". This does not ruin the game in any way, the big pixel explosion blends well with the cartoon graphic.
The music is typical 16 bit, nothing impressive but still good. Each stage has its own music theme, pretty cool. The gameplay is totally awesome, non stop carnage and a feel of free style which contra SS totally lacks. The control is pretty solid but is a tiny bit floaty. The game is easy due to unlimited continues. This game is super fun, you will keep coming back for more! Multi player is even better. The gameplay never slows down, but I use a PS2.
Metal Slug 3 is coming to PS2! GBA will also get a Metal Slug but which one I don't know. Overall this treasure is a MUST BUY for old school gamers or gamers who appreciate solid FUN 2-D action. I LOVE THIS GAME!

5.0 out of 5 stars SWEET GAME March 17, 2001
By A Customer
i own this game for the good ol' neo geo (which didnt catch on cause of its high price) and it was just wicked! the graphics are just like any other 2d scroller but you ask what is so good about this game? well first of all its fast paced 2nd the gameplay!!!!!!!! last but not least, the humor. all these things paked into one game. OH yeah its realistic 2 lets say u shoot some1 they die in one hit! but so do you. this is one game thats worth buying if you dont have the original neo geo version!!! (both exactaly the same)

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome stuff but too short. July 2, 2001
The game is great. Very fast and furious, non-stop action with great animation and humor. But what bugs me is that it's just too short. Altough you get bonus missions when you finish the game... it's not enough. I finished the game plenty of times BUT I WANT MORE !!! But for a normal player it will probably enough. Awesome game, buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars I love it! September 26, 2004
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Metal Slug X-Super Vehicle 001 is Nazca's third run-n'-gun platformer game in the Metal Slug Series. It was first released for arcades and the Neo-Geo in 1999, and was later put on Playstation.

In Metal Slug X, you play as soldier Marco, Tarma, Eri, or Fio fighting against Saddam lookalike Morden's army. You have a variety of power-up weapons, from the homing Enemy Chaser to the crawling Iron Lizard to the powerful Laser Rifle. When you have no weapon, you have a pea-shooter pistol, and if you shoot while close to an enemy, you use a knife or a hatchet to save ammo and for extra points. Levels have nice variety, are well drawn, and have funny little things going on in the background. Graphics are very cartoony, with unbelieveable animation. Enemies don't just robotically attack you, they run away in fear, they cook dinner, they talk with eachother, they even go to the bathroom. Bosses are huge, powerful, and exciting, not even causing any slowdown. Yes, you have infinite continues, but if you want to really beat the game and get true satisfaction, you'll have to do it on one credit.

But the highlight of the game, is the slugs. No, not garden pests, but huge war machines. There are a huge variety for you to drive, or even fly, such as the Plane Slug, the downward-firing Slugnoid, the standard tank Metal Slug, and even the Camel Slug. They each seem to have their own personality-the Metal Slug even flinches when hit!

The game itself is extremely fun and playable, and the multiplayer mode can get quite hectic. If you see it, buy it, but the Neo-Geo version is much better, as expensive as it is.
