Metal Slug 4 & 5

  • Excerpt: If Metal Slug 4 & 5 sounds like two games, it’s because it really is two games. Open up the game box and you’ll see two game discs staring back at you. As we sit near the dawn of the age of $60 games, two games for about $40 is a welcome sight. Of course it would be nicer if you couldn’t finish both games in less than two hours total, but more on that later… If you’re familiar with the Metal Slug games, then you should know that Metal Slug 4 and 5 are identical to their...

  • Conclusion: Metal Slug 4 and 5 offers non-stop 2D arcade action … for about 90 minutes. In this faithful port, SNK has decided that they don’t need to put any effort into their newest overpriced collection of old-looking games. Maybe they should have!

  • Excerpt: Metal Slug 4/5 from SNK Playmore brings the classic Metal Slug 2D sidescroller to the Xbox once again, this time in a double-game combo pack. The inclusion of two games is good, because these things are quick plays. But if you've worn out the analog stick on your NGPC, then you know you're in the target audience here. For the rest of us, Matt James tells us why this is a "renter" rather than a "buyer".
  • Pros: ups: Online scoreboard
  • Cons: downs: Dated gameplay, too short

  • Excerpt: I have a pretty classic love-hate relationship with the Metal Slug series. Whenever I pick one up, I'm wowed by the hand-animated old-school graphics, the classic 2D gameplay leaves me transfixed with nostalgia, and I think the games are awesome. Then the game slaps me around like an unpaid pimp and I have to put it down for a while.

Metal Slug 4 & 5 Review

  • Summary: It's likely that only those players who have already acquired a taste for Metal Slug's rich blend of crazy, manic violence and goofy humor will fully appreciate this package.
  • Pros: Same crazy Metal Slug action, Way cheaper than buying NeoGeo carts, Inspired art direction
  • Cons: Unlimited continues deflates the difficulty, 2D graphics looking older than they ever have
