Metal Slug Anthology

Digital Chumps
18 March 2008
  • Conclusion: Ultimately, how much you're going to like Metal Slug is reliant on two things; an appreciation for classic gameplay and toleration for the ridiculous amount of time necessary for Metal Slug Anthology to load said gameplay. Those who missed out the first time may get bored with getting their asses kicked (with limited credits) or kicking too much ass (unlimited credits), but those who are able to find a happy medium between the two should receive maximum enjoyment,...

Metal Slug Anthology

Playstation Illustrated
25 February 2008
  • Excerpt: The American Heritage Dictionary defines "anthology" as: A collection of literary pieces, such as poems, short stories, or plays A miscellany, assortment, or catalog, as of complaints, comments, or ideas Metal Slug Anthology fits nicely into both definitions of the word since it compiles 7 chapters of the classic side-scrolling shooter. The first definition is somehow fitting because there are well developed stories behind at least 5-6 of the games.

Metal Slug Anthology

Strategy Informer
16 February 2008
  • Conclusion: Overall, this is a mixed bag. The quality of the original games is still able to shine through the shoddy conversion. But the realisation that SNK Playmore has not really invested in their own game (which is effectively their own history) takes the shine off what could have been a really exciting anthology.

Metal Slug Anthology Review

VideoGamer.com
6 February 2008
  • Excerpt: It's fair to say that the Metal Slug series is one of the more hardcore doing the rounds on the video game circuit. With the first six games in this side-scrolling shooter series debuting on NEO-GEO hardware before later being ported to home consoles including the PlayStation 2, it's no surprise that the majority of gamers aren't aware that such a cult following exists for it.

  • Excerpt: It seems like yesterday, when in late 90s I was simply passionate about Metal Slug 1, 2 and X coin-up games. The amount of money I spent of course became less and less everyday as I was about to become quite an expert! Unfortunately things change, so suddenly I grew up, there were no coin-ups for a while and the only place where I could find some Metal Slug to play was old friend MAME the emulator!
  • Pros: Great cartoonish and bloody visuals, simple and enjoyable gameplay, fantastic multiplayer mode
  • Cons: Sound SFX not that great, replayability lost in single player mode

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Even at full price this compendium would be very much worth it, but at a budget price it's more or less essential. Anyone who plays is guaranteed fun, and whilst the games won't last forever, they are certainly infinitely replayable for short bursts of mega-ultra-fun. Highly, highly recommended.
