Man this game really made me waste my days at the arcade. My cusson and myself would spend hours on end playing away for hours on end spitting away quarters on there Metal slug collection. Any now only recently hearing that its come to the ps2 in this nice neat little package. I was ready to explode with happiness ,when i first heard i would be able to get my hands on this little gem. Metal slug gives you that heart pounding excitement from a side scroller shooter. Throwing in unbelievable low survival odds wonderfully drawn environments and throw in a big gun and you have your self a good time so leave the quarters in your pocket pull yourself out a ps2 contoler and have your self the time of your life
There isn't much that I can say about this collection. It is packed with 7 different titles from the MS series. And while that may seem like good bang for your bucks, the experience hardly has anything new to offer, as you transition between each title. With no multiplayer mode, or other arcade-like modes (besides playing alone or with one other person in the story mode), you might end up playing through this only once. Unless you are a hardcore fan of the series, you can pretty much skip this one for good (or rent it at the very most).
