  • Excerpt: Despite the title that Ciao have set up with this game you actually get both version 4 and 5 of the Metal Slug series so thatÂ’s two games in one which should make it excellent value and while this is undoubtedly a good game it is not the greatest shoot em up you will find on the market. This is a two dimensional game where you battle you way through the various levels destroying he numbers of enemies.
  • Pros: Acceptable game but nothing spectacular
  • Cons: Not too challenging

Not a Heavy-Metal Slug

  • Excerpt: The Metal Slug series is something of a rare anomaly in gaming terms. Whilst most old-skool franchises have seen fit to acquire 3D facelifts and employ flashy effects in order to remain in vogue for the 21st century, Metal Slug has if anything broadened its cult following by doing the exact opposite – steadfastly remaining the same. Whether you play the first or the fifth instalment, little has been discernibly altered in the mad-cap retro shooters blueprint.

  • Pros: Entertaining and fun, energetic gameplay, old - skool stylings, two - player
  • Cons: Extremely short, inferior to Metal Slug X, little replay value, less innovation than usual

maatzzz, Ciao

  • Summary: Metal Slug es un juego clásico de arcade, todo aquel que le gusten los videojuegos seguramente haya jugado en alguna ocasión. En el juego tenemos la posibilidad de elegir entre 4 personajes diferentes: 1. Marco Rossi: estadounidense, con la habilidad especial de realizar cálculos mentales a velocidad de vértigo. 2. Tarma Roving: japonés, con las habilidades de pintar metal y dormir al raso jeje 3.
  • Pros: sencillo y entretenido, un clásico
  • Cons: que se ha quedado antiguo

Schräge aber ultrakurze Ballerorgie

  • Summary: Mittlerweile längst zum Kult-Klassiker avanciert, teilt die Metal-Slug-Serie die Actionspiel-Freunde schnell in zwei Lager: einerseits schreckt viele unter uns mit Sicherheit die mehr als nur etwas antiquierte Darstellung durch die scrollenden 2D-Level ab, andere Zocker hingegen freuen sich über eine knallbunte und mit Spezialeffekte übersätes Szenario in „Oldschool-Qualität“.

  • Summary: Anteriormente hable del metal slug 4 en mi opinion Dispara,dispara y vuelve a disparar hoy me veo aqui para escribir sobre este otro juego que es el siguiente de la saga. como bien sabreis todos,los metal slug empezaron como maquinas de los recreativos y era cerca de imposible pasarlos,ya que estaban mas diseñados para acumular dinero de los derrochadores jovenes y niños que para ser acabados sin embargo,ahora que esta version esta para PS2 con los continues ilimitados...
  • Pros: Entretenido entre amigos
  • Cons: Si estas solo aburre

Metal slug, un juego con una gran historia

  • Summary: Metal slug siempre ha significado diversión y en estra entrega no puede ser menos. Recomendado para toda la gente que tiene ratos libres al dia y puede matarlos jugando a su consola favorita. Desde tiempo remoto metal slug, primero en recreativas, luego en consolas de 32 Bits, siempre ha echo las delicidas de todos los jugones. No dejes pasar esta oportunidad de seguir eliminando a gente y maquinas y adquierelo.
  • Pros: El aire retro.
  • Cons: Pocas horas de juego.
