A must-have for Metal Slug fans, but with control issues.

Summary: I bought the PS2 version of the Metal Slug Anthology with quite a bit of excitement. These are very true to the original arcade versions, unlike the PSX ports. The main issue is controller input lag; there is a delay between the time you press a button and the game responds.
Summary: Basically that's all you be doing in this collection that and blowing them up yet I really wouldn't have it any other way. It's always a fun sunday afternoon to sit down and blowup whatever stands in my way in this game.
an awesome anthology worthy of adding in your ps2 library!

Summary: first, i want to say, that i love Contra! seriously i've gotten some of the contra games and even though i get my ass handled to me, i still come back for a good run and eventually beating the first Contra (hasn't everybody?).
Summary: I love this series of games, and except for some slowdown, they are perfectly emulated. The controls are responsive, and the 2d graphics are awesome and sometimes absolutely HILARIOUS! Cool weapons, machines and overall just an awesome collection of games. Well worth the price.
Summary: After being extremely disappointed with the Wii version of this title, I decided to bite the bullet and spend the extra cash so I could play it with some decent controls on the PS2. And for the most part, I was not disappointed.

Summary: This series is like a nightmare cartoon version of Contra. It is insanely difficult and challenging. I found this to be much harder than Contra itself. This is the equivalent "Touhou" of this genre. Even on easy mode, a seasoned video game player will be using multiple continues.
Summary: This is an extremely good value... You're purchasing Metal Slug, Metal Slug 2, Metal Slug X, Metal Slug 3, Metal Slug 4, Metal Slug 5, and Metal Slug 6 all on the same disc. I haven't encountered a value this nice since Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution($20)...
