Metal Slug 7

gamervision.com
3 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Name: Metal Slug 7 Genre: Action, Shoot-‘em-up Platform: Nintendo DS The Metal Slug series has always been fun. If I’m ever in an arcade and have a few quarters to spare, I always look for the old NeoGeo cabinet to give the game a play. There hasn’t been a portable version of the game for a while, and my DS has been screaming at me to break up the recent influx of RPGs.

Metal Slug 7

  • Conclusion: Metal Slug 7 is a fine addition to the series, it's just unfortunate that the experience is so brief and limited. Had there been some kind of wireless cooperative play or more ways to play the story, that'd have really helped.

Metal Slug 7 DS Review

DarkZero
27 February 2009
  • Excerpt: I may as well admit this before I go any further. I am not particularly good at the Metal Slug games. I die a lot, retry a lot, and use up my continues in quick succession. Regardless, I still enjoy playing the titles, and relished my time with pretty much all the predecessors leading up to this effort. However, I will say this love of the series did not instantly carry over to Metal Slug 7.

Metal Slug 7 [DS] Review

WiiDS.co.uk
26 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Metal Slug 7 is the first in its series to be released on the DS. The games follow a simple concept of running along the platform and shooting enemies. Previous versions of this game have gathered a dedicated following, so this should be no let down if it follows the pattern. Being a girl, I’m not sure I get the thrill of running around and randomly shooting things and ramming a tank into stuff, but I’ll certainly give it a go!
  • Pros: Classic feel to game play, Graphically pleasing, Easy levels for beginners
  • Cons: No opportunity to explore, No use of DS stylus, Not very exciting

  • Conclusion: Men, för all del, tar man bara spelet för vad det är - ett bärbart Metal Slug med mycket pang pang, enorma bossar, ett oväntat stort fordon samt det enda DS-specifika alternativet som finns att tillgå - så är det såklart helt okej. Under vilka andra omständigheter som helst är det tekniskt omöjligt att rekommendera detta framför Metal Slug Anthology som gör precis samma sak fast sju gånger om, och i sex fall av sju så otroligt mycket bättre.
  • Pros: Det går absolut inte att klaga på mängden action och som erbjuds för den som uppskattar genren...
  • Cons: ...men SNK hade verkligen behövt ta ut svängarna mer för att få seriens sjunde del att kännas relevant.

Metal Slug 7 - Test

Eurogamer
19 November 2008
  • Summary: Zwei Dinge wurmen mich an dem heiß erwarteten neuen Metal Slug. Zum einen stellt sich die Frage, warum ich das auf dem DS spiele und nicht als Wii Ware auf dem großen Screen mit meinem SNK2 in der Pranke. Es hätte sich so sehr dafür angeboten. Zum zweiten fehlt es nicht nur an dem Hauch von Neu in Form wirklich frischer Feinde und Situationen.

  • Conclusion: Finalement ce nouveau Metal Slug ne parvient pas à dépasser le cadre du « sympa mais pas excellent ». On en est même loin. Après le plaisir de retrouver Marco et de flinguer du vilain à tout bout du champ, on dresse instinctivement le bilan des plaintes. Et malheureusement il y en a. Environnements trop classiques, absence de véritables bouffonneries et de moments épiques, des thèmes déjà entendus, des ennemis déjà vus, des armes déjà utilisées.
