  1. It'd be a little more worthwhile if an arcade-perfect Metal Slug 3 had been included in the collection, but this is still a must-have for those of us who fondly remember our local arcade.
  2. There just aren't many games like this being produced, and thankfully the Metal Slug series continues to offer astounding quality.

    Finally, everyone will be able to see everything these games have to offer. [June 2005, p.127]

    Best serves dedicated otaku-style collectors and quick-play arcade gamers. [Oct 2005, p.106]

    For most gamers, this is a pass. There's just not enough value in the game long term in the 2 games to make this worth your money at a $40 price point, or even $30.
  6. Unless you are a die-hard fan of the series, there isn't enough game here to justify a purchase.
  7. It gives me a warm fuzzy to go back and play games like these, but like any other classic games, it just can't hold my attention.

    Awesome games! Just pure and great quality, metal slug 5 is better than 4 imo, but both are great. The music of metal slug 5 is justAwesome games! Just pure and great quality, metal slug 5 is better than 4 imo, but both are great. The music of metal slug 5 is just wonderful, a masterpiece. Just so much fun to play, very good but not perfect controls, some unfair moments, the difficulty is brutal but with some practice you can be very good at this game, some prisoners reward you with weapons, others don't. Other thing that i like about this game is that almsot every weapon is very useful, you don't have the worst weapon of the series (the dot gun - D gun) you just have the best weapons ever, including the double machine guns. The mechanized slug vehicles are the best i saw in the series. The art and the graphics are improved and you can enjoy the beautiful level design while you kill all the enemies you can! The characters are good but they are the same ad ms2 & ms3, they should keep the same as ms4. Bosses of ms4 are more balanced and not so insane as ms3. Metal slug 4 is not the weakest of the series, metal slug 7 is the weakest. But anyway, i really enjoyed this game and i recommend it to every gamer. One Of the best run & gun games ever.

    While I really love this series and these games, it's a shame they're arcade perfect. More specifically, the problem is that there While I really love this series and these games, it's a shame they're arcade perfect. More specifically, the problem is that there are unlimited continues. This means anyone can beat the game under most any circumstances. If I was blindfolded and forced to wear boxing gloves, I'd still be able to win easily. This is a major oversight considering the type of gamer that is into the metal slug series. If the game was like Metal Slug 3 on xbox and had limited continues, I would probably rate this package a 9/10 - great games. Expand
