If you're reading this review, having never played a Metal Slug game before, then all you need to know is that it's an insanely over-the-top 2D action game in which you play the role of a commando who kills a lot of people.
This set isn't a horrible beginning for those looking to introduce themselves to the Metal Slug series, but last years Metal Slug 3 offers up no unlimited continues, the original development team's work, and a much more "Metal Slug" feel.
Metal Slug series fans and arcade game fans will probably track this bundle down and will gladly add it to their collection without hesitation, while those that have never experienced such a game should rent it first to see if it suits their taste.
This combo pack will appeal only to those dedicated fans who take pleasure twisting their thumbs in knots trying to get the highest score. While it's still a great shooter, it's something we've all seen before.
