    Fantastic fun converted perfectly to Sony's handheld. All the Metal Slug you could ever want. [Issue #150, p.86]
  2. Metal Slug Anthology is the ultimate collection of the seven most intense run-and-gun video games ever made.
  3. A complete package for any fan of the addictive shooter even with the annoying load times that show up often. Still, it’s hard to ignore the action-packed collection that is still just as fun as the day you plucked that first quarter in the arcades.

    It's a phenomenal value, with $1400 worth of Neo-Geo arcade bliss in a $40 package, along with a few extras and two-player compatibility.
  5. Metal Slug Anthology offers seven amazing games for the price of one, quite a deal when you consider that just one of these Metal Slug games ran for well over $200 on the Neo Geo. There are a few lengthy load times to worry about, but other than that this makes for a near perfect collection of some of the best 2D action games ever made.
  6. It's entertaining, amusing and its screen-filling boss battles are impressive, but it's completely throwaway. [Dec 2006, p.96]
  7. Metal Slug Anthology was supposed to be one of the portable system's A-list titles. Instead, due to reasons that probably couldn't have been helped, it ends up being one of the system's biggest jokes.

    Metal Slug Anthology on the PSP is a perfect port from the PS2 version. Seven games all bundled in on one ultimate Metal Slug collection. The best part of this version is that you get to take it on the go and play it everywhere. Expand
