    Metal Slug has always been a fantastic series. Steam really needs to add more Metal Slug games, because this is the only one so far. Anyway,Metal Slug has always been a fantastic series. Steam really needs to add more Metal Slug games, because this is the only one so far. Anyway, Metal Slug 3 has its charm, and it pretty much shines in every aspect expect for length. It's short, but it's challenging. If you're still a newbie, you can die on Easy real easily as well. The online multiplayer is a nice addition that they added and if you haven't tried any of the Metal Slug games and prefer PC gaming, go ahead and buy it and give it a try. 9/10 Expand

    Overall the game seems to be unfinished. Control are delayed.
    One can't use left or right trigger of the Xbox-Controller. If one reconfigures controls, the menu buttons will change as well. If you unassign them, you won't be able to navigate through the menu anymore. These are elementary thing every game should have.
    Graphics and coop are nice but the game hardly playable for me.
