    A tricked-out classic that you can enjoy for the weekend with your buddies, and have a laugh as you go along.

    Being a fan of the Contra series since I was a kid, I've always seen Metal Slug as a revival of the Nintendo game. I've spent a small fortune in the arcade playing Metal Slug 2 at that time and boy am I glad the extreme ... Read Full Review

    One of the best arcade games ever.

    I saw this at Texas, and I played it, wasted a few bucks, and reviewed it right now. The game is a very good remake. The graphics are great, and are highly improved from Metal Slug 2. It actually looks so real, bl... Read Full Review

    Metal Slug 2 Redux

    Those of you thinking that Metal Slug X is a brand new game are mistaken, I am afraid to say. It's actually just a little bit bigger and a little bit better version of Metal Slug 2. It was a fine game on it's own, but no... Read Full Review

    A port that could've used a little more work

    This Playstation port of Metal Slug X is anything but perfect, but what is here is pretty good and decent enough for a purchase for any hardcore fan. The one problem this port has is the flaws with slowdown and lack of ... Read Full Review
