About
20 March 2015
  • Summary: Well, it took it long enough, and who would've thought it'd be an Xbox exclusive? The quarter gulping Metal Slug 3 is as fun and as creative as your remember it. The transition to a console was flawless, and it has tons of extras to boot. Thank you SNK / NEOGEO, from Xbox fans everywhere.
  • Pros: One of the most popular arcade franchises of all time, Japanese side scroller goodness, Zany intense action
  • Cons: Very dated graphics, Xbox Live only supports scoreboards, no online multiplayer

  • Excerpt: Are you rich? Do you lie on a mattress stuffed with fifty-pound notes each night? Do you light the most expensive Cuban tobacco wrapped up in torn-off strips of Picasso's early sketches, lit from a perpetual fire fuelled by your own private oil well?

  • Excerpt: If you thought that the shoot-’em-up genre was all spaceships and screens full of brightly coloured bullets, you’ve obviously never sampled a Metal Slug title. The remains of the company that brought us the NeoGeo and countless arcade classics have started to make a proper step towards supporting...

  • Excerpt: While Contra was busy making ill fated forays into 3-D, Metal Slug was staying true to the pixel world of 2-D side-scrollers and the joystick bashing difficulty the genre is famous for. As a matter of fact, Metal Slug 3 has a whole host of “classic” game archetypes.

  • Summary: SNK's long-running cult favorite shooting series has arrived on the Xbox in the form of Metal Slug 3, an excellent conversion of the arcade hit. Featuring five levels of frenetic action, impressive boss de signs, this game is the definition of thumb candy.

Game Over Online
26 June 2005
  • Excerpt: 2004 may just go down in history as the year the Xbox resurrected the word challenge in the lexicon of gamers. That’s right, I’m calling out some of you soft players out there who’ve never faced down an onslaught of never-ending foes; who’ve mysteriously bypassed the shooter phenomenon; who’ve never...

The Review Busters
20 June 2005
  • Conclusion: Metal Slug 3 may seem like a random game to hit XBLA, but that’s ok. The game play is solid, hard yet fun during the right occasion. If you already own this game it might seem foolish to spend another $10 to own the game again.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: An old favourite converted with great care (and about time too). Despite it being budget, and containing some new extras, it still feels a bit too light. Self-discipline is needed with those infinite continues too, else it will become even lighter.

The Next Level
23 July 2004
  • Excerpt: And then I made a crucial discovery. As you pass under a chopper, it turns, indicating the direction in which it will fire (diagonal left, straight down, diagonal right). With good timing, you can trick the choppers back and forth just enough so that you know what direction they will fire, and then...
