Metal Slug Anthology is a great game, it's straight from the arcades, then converted to PS2. Nothing new innovative about the game, but its a great a collection to have. That's why I rate this game 8-10, because there's nothing new or secret yet revealed about this game.
If you know what you are getting, Metal Slug is great. It's simplistic and fun and requires little investment to sit down and play for a bit. The missions take interesting and often comedic twists which keep you wondering what will you encounter next. The weapons, vehicles, and weird bonus goodies make it a fun game to play. These games are far far better than most games created with loftier goals of fancy graphics and submersive storylines. GREAT.
This compilation is outstanding!! It brought back memories of those great arcade games, where I would deposit my savings into them for hours!
The port keeps the fun wacky cartoony graphics. The gamefly is entertaining and very enjoyable. The only downside is that the entire collection can be finished within a few hours (because of the unlimited continues).
