Summary: If you've played Metal Slug before, don't expect anything radically different. This is almost the same game you've played eight other times --that's what makes it one of the DS's best arcade games. There is a plot; I have no idea what is is, and still don't after six playthroughs. But it's not important enough to pay attention to, so don't bother. The action taking place on the top screen is reminiscent of the arcade game.
Summary: I have been a huge fan of the Metal Slug series since it's debut in the arcade since the '90's. Metal Slug 7 is kinda different from the arcade smash, but decent for a portable. 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.
Summary: pretty much brand new in the case and every thing, could have event to game stop across town but very happy with this. shipped to me way faster than even the things from prime i ordered at the same time
Summary: this is a good game with a good price. it's a 2d retro style run and gun shooter. and it's fun to shoot stuff up. there are multiple characters to choose from as well. but the problem is a lot of deaths, and you have lives and so many continues.
Summary: i have always liked the metal slug series because of the amazing art work they display in the game. Metal slug 7 is a very fun and exicting game to play. It introduces new characters and offers new weapons too. however, the fun did not lasted because even my little cousin can easliy beat the game in about a hour on normal setting.
Summary: Metal Slug 7 contains only 7 stages. For those that think the point of a Slug game is just in finishing the game, you will be disappointed in the fact that you can probably blow through the game in an hour or 2, tops. You should also remember that the original Slug games were designed for the arcades, where having a game much longer than this was an arcade operator nightmare, especially if someone could finish the game on a single quarter!
Summary: Pros: +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 +Replay value Cons: -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.
Summary: I have never been able to say no to Metal Slug, and I never will either. That's why I was nothing but excited when I heard that Metal Slug would be making its debut on the DS with Metal Slug 7, and needless to say, if you're a fan of the series and own a DS, you know that you need to own this. The run and gun experience of the arcade smash has managed to be perfectly shrunken down for the DS, and there's virtually no slowdown with all the action happening.
