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...
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!
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.
Excerpt: 7 Fun Games In 1! Well metal slug has been around since 1996, but this game gave me the impression that it was a lot older. Still, old doesn’t necessarily mean bad, and I am big fan of older games.
Pros: classic gaming style,
Cons: arcade style may not be everyones cup of tea,
Conclusion: All of which presents a problem. The games that are presented on Metal Slug Anthology are a marvel of art and design. There are, frequently, excruciatingly tough but all of their peaks are surmountable by the persistent and/or the talented.
