    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 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.

    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 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 sideI 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. Expand

    Metal Slug X hits the Playstation frontline with a serious boom. As always, the hilarious nazi-like soldiers go out with the awesome demises that are expected of them. The controls are quick to learn, but long to master as you learn to be a supreme dodger. The music is slightly repetitious but adds to the overall gameplay. The fun as hell explosions are a key selling point. 2p games are Metal Slug X hits the Playstation frontline with a serious boom.

The music is slightly repetitious but adds to the overall gameplay. The fun as hell explosions are a key selling point. 2p games are even more colorful. The extra minigames are extremely addictive, if not frustrating sometimes. Combat school cuts no slack; trying to gain the instructors respect can be very tasking. Overall, their is tons of eye candy and cute things to laugh at. For the veteran arcade gamer, this game will fill that missing piece of enterntainment that is harder to find in a lot of consoles these days. Expand

  1. If you own a PSone this is the best thing that has happened to it in years.
  2. A faithful re-creation of the popular 2-D side-scrolling arcade shooter.

    One of the finest of shooters, because it delivers such a massive volume of exploding things, and in such wonderfully fine detail.
