In MS3, the emphasis of the game was placed on the fun of the sheer weirdness found in the game. Yetis, zombies, a monkey with an uzi, and even the ability to become obese gave the game tons of appeal because it was both funny and enjoyable to play. Although a bit overpriced at $40, it was the best game in the series, so I didn't complain. MS 4 and 5 are extremely similar to each other, but are two games, and are thus a better value than the previous foray into the Metal Slug world.
There is a lot less interest in these games. You cannot be fat, there's no monkey helper, and most of the enemies you'll be fighting will be nothing more than ordinary troops. However, to make up for this, the battles in this game are qite a bit more frantic and bloody than MS3's. These games are far more action packed than 3, even if they are a little less interesting.
In terms of new stuff, apart from new stages, there isn't much. MS4 introduces the ability to weild 2 heavy machine guns at once for double the firepower, and MS5 lets you slide on the ground to avoid enemy fire. These additions dont add much to the overall package, but if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Some might scoff at the 2 dimensional graphics. Most people, like me, are willing to give a game a chance as long as its fun to play. If you are one of these purist types, this game is not for you. If you are a wimp who cannot play games with any modicum of difficulty, this game is not for you. It is hard.Read more ›
True in almost every aspect to the original; it's a nice trip down memory lane. (for those of you who actually remember the neighborhood arcade.)
Good graphics and very satisfying gunplay. Explosions are good too.
A worthy purchase for the "old school" arcade aficianado!
