With three unique modes to play within, a variety of unique weapons, wonderful graphics and an extraordinary soundtrack, CT Special Forces is a game that modern gamers and nostalgia freaks (like me) can truly sink their teeth into.
Only the very best of gamers will be able to complete this game in a day or two so my advice would be to purchase it if this is your style of game. CTSF rings in a New Year full of death and destruction - and we wouldn't have it any other way.
A good little mindless shooter title. I would recommend it for those long waits in line or long drives (in the passenger seat please) when a player does not want the difficulty of trying to figure out some puzzle or read any long dialogs.
While matching up well to its obvious inspiration, CT Special Forces still lacks the spark of imagination and intensity that made Metal Slug so special; nevertheless, it's a pretty good take on the landmark game and a blast to play. [Oct 2003, p.118]
For a game that looks a heck of a lot like SNK's Metal Slug, it doesn't retain the charm or fun of that series, and features a lot of clunky gameplay elements that, honestly, didn't need to be there in the first place.
