    One of the finest of shooters, because it delivers such a massive volume of exploding things, and in such wonderfully fine detail.
  2. A skewed sense of humor, combined with its frenzied gameplay, gives the game a unique flavor and makes it one of the best side-scrolling shooters out there.
  3. 90
    Delivers the goods for a perfect arcade-to-home port, while the game’s console-exclusive features deserve a gaming medal of honor.
  4. It's just refreshing to play to a game like this again, but how much you get out of it depends on how much you like this genre.
  5. If you own a PSone this is the best thing that has happened to it in years.
  6. A stellar representative of a bygone era of gaming that put more emphasis on skill and personality that textured polygons or sex appeal.
  7. It's idiotic. It's also pulse-pounding, addictive, cartoony, loud and grating, and essentially engineered to lay the audio/visual Stigmata on mom and dad hard if they happen to be in the same room trying to read US News & World Report.
  8. A faithful re-creation of the popular 2-D side-scrolling arcade shooter.
  9. While essentially just a more difficult remix of "Metal Slug 2," Metal Slug X is still one of the finest 2D shoot-em-ups since the original "Contra."

    Metal Slug X is one of the many PSOne classics, it is such an addicting and awesome game. The artstyle is arcady and some parts in the gameMetal Slug X is one of the many PSOne classics, it is such an addicting and awesome game. The artstyle is arcady and some parts in the game are really funny. The shooting mechanics and side-scrolling action is better than its ever been. Metal Slug X is like a combination of Metal Slug One and Two, it combines boss fights and it makes the experience longer and better. Metal Slug X is truly a classic. Full Review »

    I loved this game It was so good the only other ps1 game i would ive 10 isnt on this website and trust me I played a lot of psone back in theI loved this game It was so good the only other ps1 game i would ive 10 isnt on this website and trust me I played a lot of psone back in the day that is no light statement. It was so fun to work through the smart levels with decent but detailed and intersesting graphics and it had a perfect easy to learn hard to master like games should be. It also was not repetitive at all for a side scrolling shooting game because there was constant new enemies and interesting ways to challenge the player wich is great level design. Full Review »
