  • Summary: Players control Marco and Tarma, both members of the special-ops force Team Peregrine Falcon (commonly known as Team PF), and battle their way through stage after stage of intense action. The goal is to try to overthrow General Morden and win back the stolen weapon, the Metal Slug. PlayersPlayers control Marco and Tarma, both members of the special-ops force Team Peregrine Falcon (commonly known as Team PF), and battle their way through stage after stage of intense action. The goal is to try to overthrow General Morden and win back the stolen weapon, the Metal Slug. Players must blast through waves of enemies and machines (while also jumping over any obstacles in the way) to advance through the stages. It's not as hopeless as it might sound, though - weapons such as heavy machine guns, shotguns, rocket launchers and flamethrowers, as well as the Metal Slug itself (which appears frequently in the game), will make the battle easier.

    A no frills port of the run and gun classic. Thirteen of of the fifteen achievements can be had in an hour.

    This game is a abhorrent nightmare. Complete lack of any story, and I did not care about the characters at all. In the grand scheme of theThis game is a abhorrent nightmare. Complete lack of any story, and I did not care about the characters at all. In the grand scheme of the universe this game is wholly insignificant. I tried to play this with my friend and it sucked so much colossal ass that I had to create a metacritic account to write how much this game punched me in my balls for the level of absolute GARBO this is. If you want a completely disgustingly garbage experience from beginning to end, i'm sure you'd find a way. Expand
