I have never played this as a real arcade game before but man is this game fun. If you like old school arcade games then you should pick this one up for sure. It has 7 different games in all on here. Action packed game too. Lot's of shooting, blowing up. Good two player game. You even get different vehicles that you can jump into at different points in the games. You can throw grenades and pick up different weapons. There are a bunch of different ways of playing too. You can use just the wii-mote, just the nun-chuck, and a gamecube controller also. I really like the controls in this game too. The only problem I saw is that your fingers will hurt after all the button mashing. I think this a game you can pick up and play again and again. Especially with new people. You can play with unlimited lives so any one can pick up the stick and have fun with it. You can also save your games too so you can come back to them any time. I think this is a must play for sure.

FANTASTIC.

This game is fantastic - I've always liked these games in the arcades, but you die so much, that it's near impossible to get past the second level in any of the Metal Slugs without spending alot of quarters... This compilation is great, because, first and foremost, it's got Metal Slug 1, 2, X, 3, 4, 5, and 6. That's alot of Metal Slug, and since each one seperately is so short [Around 1 hour and 30 minutes each to finish], this is a good value. Good co-op action, too. If your into constant, twitch based [2D] shooting action, give this game a go. You won't regret it.

Pros:
- 7 GOOD games in one package.
- Fun gameplay.
- High quality, funny 2D animation.

Cons:
- The default control scheme has you shaking the Wii remote to throw grenades - this doesn't always work so well. Why couldn't we just press the A button??

This game is great. A good buy, and a fantastic rental.

I had never played metal slug before when I got this game, so i didnt know what to expect. Well I am glad I got it. All 7 games never get boring even if you are playing by yourself, co-op just adds to the fun. if you are looking for a fun co-op, this is the game for you. A great game for anybodies collection.
