  1. Metal Slug games tend to disappear fast and never return, so snag this one fast and don’t be sluggish. If you see a sale, bite and don’t hesitate.
  2. The soundtrack for Metal Slug 7 is definitely a winner.
  3. This title does all the right things in terms of challenge, weapons, character options, and level designs. The problem is that it rarely goes beyond what’s been previously established; aside from a few insanely awesome boss fights and a handful of fancy new throwaway underlings to ravage, nearly all of your foes have been plucked from the older titles.

    Metal Slug 7 is a great installment of a classic franchise.
  5. Metal Slug 7 is a godsend to hardcore gamers looking for a portable fix.
  6. n-Revolution Magazine UK
    It’s a toss-up between this and Contra 4 for a DS run-‘n’-gun. MS7 could have done with a two-player game and more innovation.
  7. The Metal Slug series are still great games to play after all these years and considering how many versions are out there Metal Slug 7 feels fresh and is a real blast to play.
  8. If you’re a Metal Slug fan you owe it to yourself not to miss Metal Slug 7.
  9. Pelit (Finland)
    Metal Slug 7 delivers what fans of the series expect, nothing more, nothing less. [Jan 2009]
  10. Nintendo Power
    Metal Slug 7 is a solid, fun shooter, but it lacks the ingenuity of the better games in the series. [Holiday 2008, p.80]
  11. I think there’s a certain subset of gamers that will absolutely adore MS7, and a larger group of us that will find it fun, but ultimately somewhat unsatisfying.
  12. Regardless of the platform, it's good to see Metal Slug back in action with all of the same old intense gameplay that has made it such a hit with shoot-'em-up arcaders for more than a decade.
  13. Metal Slug 7 is an addictive game, despite the absence of a co-op mode, the lack of variation in playable characters, and the recycling of different elements from earlier installments in the series. The old school gameplay is a blast though, the visuals have nostalgia written all over it, and the Combat Room is a nice addition.
