Metal Slug XX

True achievements
13 November 2010
  • Conclusion: When it comes right down to it, this is just Metal Slug 7 with a new and misleading title. For it's price tag of 1,200 MSP($15) you should get a lot more than just a port of an old DS game, but if you're a fan of the series than this game is worth every penny of your hard earned cash.

Metal Slug XX Review

12 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Bizarrely, this is actually a port of Metal Slug 7, rather than this being " Metal Slug XX ". The game was originally out on the DS- so is this worth the cash given the handheld origins of the game?

Expert Review

27 May 2010
  • Summary: Recycling isn't just for environmentalists anymore. Add SNK Playmore to the list of groups trying to save the planet through salvaging, although what the developer is doing with Metal Slug XX is far from admirable. This Xbox Live Arcade addition to the venerable series of 2D side-scrolling shooters is actually a retread of Metal Slug 7 , released for the Nintendo DS at the end of 2008, so be aware that you might have played this game before.
  • Pros: Intense side-scrolling shoot-'em-up, Flair added by cartoony visuals, such as exaggerated death animations, Great cooperative mode
  • Cons: Ugly port that has barely been changed from its handheld iterations, Extreme difficulty can turn the action into a grind

Test: Metal Slug XX

4 July 2011
  • Summary: Vor Knapp 14 Jahren setzte SNK auf dem Neo Geo und Arcade Automaten mit der flüssigen Edelpixel Ballerei Metal Slug in bester Run´n´Gun manier Maßstäbe in Sachen Spielbarkeit, Animationen und nicht zuletzt Humor. Heute, in der Zeit von Halo, Uncharted, GTA und Heavy Rain ticken viele Design Uhren im Videospiel Business anders während Videospiele zur Koryphäe der Unterhaltungsindustrie avancieren.
  • Pros: + Zauberhafte Pixel-Optik, + blechernder Arcade FX Sound, + Wunderbare Animation, + Humor in bester Clever&Smart Manier, + Splittscreen Koop, + Ad-Hoc Online Funktion, + Endlich ein Spiel das auch mit Unbekannten Xbox Live Usern Spaß macht, + Viele Geheimgänge, - Eigentlich eine Frechheit, - 1200 MS Point für gerade mal 180 MB, - Es dauerte ewig bis ich darauf kam, für den Aufzug den X Button zu halten., - Ab normal schon unfassbar schwer, - Kein echtes 16/9 sondern n...

Metal Slug XX

7 December 2010
  • Excerpt: Bien que le titre change, qu'on ne s'y trompe pas. Metal Slug XX n'est ni plus ni moins que l'adaptation PSP du 7ème opus sorti sur Nintendo DS en 2008. Une opération osée de la part de SNK d'autant que le tout est vendu à prix fort et qu'il ne propose rien de bien nouveau.
