Metal Slug Series
« on: January 10, 2011, 12:31:32 PM »
I've seen that few people have mentioned Metal Slug around here, so I decided to start topic, because I didn't find one.

I ordered Metal Slug Anthology for PS2 and I hope all the games would be as good as Metal Slug 3 (I already have it). I liked the MM3 very much, but are the other games on Anthology as good or even better than 3?

And does the Anthology have Unlimited lives option? I read from one source that said that it hasn't, but on the source it said it has. Can someone confirm this fact?

I don't know its a personal choice to me, I enjoy all the series. There is an option for unlimited or limited lives. The amount of limited lives you get is depending on the difficulty you choose.

I'm still waiting for a Metal Slug with overhauled graphics, i'm not asking for HD stuff, just some new sprites/graphics.

Bump.

This awesome series needs more discussion.

To generate more talk: what do you like better? This or Contra?

Definintely MS. I can say I'm a little bias since I grew up playing this game, but most Metal Slug games are amazing because of their level design, creativity, comedy and the fact that I can replay it as soon as I've finished it, and I can't do that with every game.

Speaking of Metal Slug and comedy:

Metal Slug hands down. I've never got any joy when I Contra. Metal Slug is just more fun game.

I have a Metal Slug 6 machine in an arcade near me, and yet I've never been able to beat the game. I even cheat by picking Ralf :P

I was once visiting gospel music festival. I walked around the the place it was held and I saw Metal Slug 6 machine. I immediatly run to play. I put 2 euros to that machine. It didn't work and I put 2 euros more and tried again and it still didn't work. You can imagine how much I cursed.

Good that I later bought Anthology. Metal Slug 6 was first game I tried. And it became my favorite of whole series.

personally i think ms 1, x and 3 are the best. biggest gripe of the ms games ive got is that at the hardest level the bosses dont get harder in patterns, or in the amount of firepower they use. instead they need to get shot for what seems like an hour to kill just 1. even those damn trains in 2 and x, shooting them on the hardest difficulty took a long ass time. something im still not too fond of. maybe with a new engine they could just have you attacked by more enemies and have more bullets on screen instead of having bosses and such take forever to kill. this is something i also cant stand in games like god of war 3, the game doesnt get harder on the hardest difficulty, its just that all the enemies take forever to die and your moves and weapons dont seem that strong anymore.
In the end, there can only be XIII.

I think people who choose Contra do so out of nostalgia. Contra basically started the Run 'n Gun genre, Super C streamlined that experience. Contra 3 and Contra Hardcorps take it that much farther, I prefer Hardcorps because of the alternate paths.

I prefer Metal Slug because of the art style, very satisfying weapons and Tank usage, overt humor, and the branching paths in Metal Slug 3. What a way for old SNK to go out with Metal Slug 3. Ending your run with probably the greatest Run 'n Gun game ever made. Metal Slug 5 is pretty good. The others should be avoided.
