    this game is fun for a fan

    As 2D games originally designed for the NeoGeo platform, these aren't technically impressive games by any means. Even if you focus your attention entirely on the game's playful and bizarre art style and designs, it's har... Read Full Review

    Good for 15 minutes and then file it away

    Arcade perfect ports doesnt always mean that it is ok for companies to sell an ancient game at a high price. Metal Slug is the stuff of legends and remains probably the best 2D shooter of all time (and also the most diff... Read Full Review

    Two great games, but really just two arcade emulators on a PS2 disc.

    These are two great arcade games that are funny, action-packed and tons of fun. This disc emulates them on PS2, almost exactly. No graphic updates, no nothing. I would not spend a lot of money on this. It really ... Read Full Review

    Some fine old school shooters.

    Both Metal Slug 4 and 5 are frentic and fun if you like 2d shooters. The graphics are very colorful and everything moves nicely with no slowdown. There are also a lot of humorous animations thrown in. You will die man... Read Full Review

    "Best 2D action side scroller out there."

    2D action side scrollers are pretty scarce now in the gaming world. But, Metal Slug 4 & 5 gives a good reminisce back to the old 2D style side scrollers back in the 8 bit and 16 bit days. If you enjoy 2D side scroller ac... Read Full Review
