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
-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.Read more ›
Same known one hit you're dead gameplay, a bit on the difficult side though.Graphics are similar, but not as big and vibrant or with the silky smooth touches as the bigger brethren, arcade or big console. It's still big on the bosses, and action does not slow down with multiple enemies on the screen.
Control was easy enough, up/down/ left /right A/ B/ C config not rocket science here, a thoroughly enjoyable portable shoot 'em up.
