  • Excerpt: At last you can enjoy every single metal slug game ever made as well as a new one. What's more, you can do so without having to save a month worth of lunch money just to get to the end of the first level down at the arcade. No, it doesn't have joystick controls, but it does have some seemingly random load times, and all the mindless Nazi/alien/zombie/robot shooting you could possibly want or need.

Metal Slug Anthology Review

  • Excerpt: SNK's Metal Slug games have always occupied an unusual place on the gaming landscape. While stuck defiantly in the past, they are certainly well loved, and older copies on the NeoGeo attract impressive bids when they do appear on eBay. They also have a reputation for excellence, but most gamers have never played them, or, have struggled to get to grips with their unique style.

  • 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.

Review – Metal Slug Anthology

30 May 2007
  • Conclusion: Metal Slug on the Wii is ultimately a good thing. It shows a willingness from SNK to branch away from Sony to companies that actually welcome their games. It is also a chance for the Wii’s audience of new gamers to explore the roots of their new hobby. I fear, though, that these efforts will be sabotaged. With the load issues and half hearted extras compounded on top of control issues, new players will have a terrible first impression and old diehards just won’t care.

  • Excerpt: Nintendo Wii has led the way with downloadable content on the Virtual Console. Despite a few issues with transferring ownership between different consoles, not to mention bringing Virtual Console games to a friends console, the system is flawless. With all the success and money the Virtual Console is making for Nintendo and Third Parties, it is a surprise that there is actually a Wii game that includes a multitude of older titles.

Metal Slug Anthology

Nintendo World Report
2 April 2007
  • Summary: I hope you still have those GameCube controllers.
  • Pros: Each game is a perfect translation of its arcade counterpart, Excellent 2-D graphics and humorous sound effects, Seven of the greatest run'n'gun games ever in one package
  • Cons: No support for Classic Controller, Very bare-bones for a compilation package, Wii-specific control schemes are almost entirely useless
