when it comes to video games, i'm one of those gamers that gets bored easily. but i have to say that this game is far from boring. its an anthology of every metal slug game and its good, very good. now I'm not going to say that shooting the same enemies over and over again doesn't get repetitive after awhile, because anyone who has played metal slug knows that you shoot anything and everything that moves in this game. so yeah its repetitive. also, for a psp game, its a little laggy. there are so many explosions on the screen that at times the action will just freeze. it never permanently froze on me though as the action always resumed after a second or three. and the loading times are brutal. you will be staring at a black screen for a good minute in between scenes, after you finish a mission, and before and after you start up a game. you cant even switch between characters on the fly because you have to wait for it to load. but the positives outweigh the negatives. this anthology has every metal slug game and they are genuinely fun to play. and if you get some of the jokes in the games, they are pretty funny. I don't wanna spoil the game so i wont say what the jokes are but they ARE there. trust me. and the game does mix it up with vehicles and bosses. all in all, excellent shooter. and you get about 7 of them on one disc to boot.

I love this game, and you probably will too. That is if your a Metal Slug Fan! This game is so cool it has 1-6 of the metal slugs...its very fun,because its a fast motion played game every where you go you're shooting someone or something.The only thing bad is the Graphical slow Downs.=[ other than that this game owns! try it out to see for your self!
