Metal Slug Anthology Gameplay Movie 2
Metal Slug Anthology is already a tremendous deal for your money, and it's definitely worth checking out for anyone into chaotic old school mayhem. The Playstation 2 version is also the best one for your money, since it isn't hampered by the control or loading issues of the other ports.
PSM3 Magazine UKThere's no denying that it's repetitive, but it retains its arcade-style toughness. [July 2007, p.84]

Excellent collection for excellent price! I bought it last tuesday on ebay and receive yesterday. The gameplay is arcade perfect and sound and graphic too! Loading times are short and small slowdown of framerate is only in Metal Slug 2 (like MVS cabinet version). All other 6 games (Metal Slug 1 X 3 4 5 6) have smooth framerate. Everything other seems to be fine, but is not. I found difference between manual and game. For example: in manual is that there is display option, that you can set Original pixel, Full screen and 4:3. But in game option there is no display option! And in manual is that if I choose EASY, it give me 30 credits, if I choose NORMAL, it give me 20 credits and if I give HARD, it give me 10 credits. But in game option, there I can choose between EASY MEDIUM and HARD, but it no changes number of credits. I can set 20 10 or 5 credits. That is different. And in maual is that: "Continues - Choose between Unlimited or Limited continuse. Okay...so you think you have got the "right stuff"? Choose "Limited" and see if you can beat the game with a set number of lives. Special bonus items await to the true METAL SLUG champion." In game i cant set to the limited, because there is only FREE PLAY, 5, 10, 20. and there are more differences between manual and game. For example, on page 8, there isi some Token system and Wallpapers in Gallery but in game there arent. And in manual is, that if I give PAUSE MENU, there I can save my current game. But in game this function isnt. I think this PS2 manual of Metal Slug Anthology is only slighty updated PSP manual. Because, in this PS2 manual do not fits pictures. On page 8, there is something with Game Lobby and Connect. And the buttons are Playstations. Surely the pictures are from PSP version. And I read review for PSP version of MSA, that in PSP version you can choose between Original resolution, 4:3 and 16:9. I think that is enought to say, that the MANUAL have a LOT OF DIFFERENCES. BUT THAT DO NOT AFFECT ON GAMES. THEY ALL ARE GREAT!… Expand

I mean I love the games so much, but this collection is an outdated mess of loading times. So instead, I'm rating these games here on there own merit. what i call
out of 10:
Metal Slug 1 = 9
A wonderful start to a great franchise. Not as experimental as the others, but it's very well made.
Metal Slug 2/XX=10
The BEST of the entire series, or in other words, my favorite of the whole series! XX was pretty good too, but I have a soft spot for 2 as it was the most readily available to me at a pizza restaurant and my summer camp.
Metal Slug 3=9
A fan favorite, and what people call the best in the franchise. I love it, even if not as much as number 2.
Metal Slug 4=8
I think of this game as a "Metal Slug's greatest hits". It isn't as creative as the other 3, but it isn't trying to be. It's the first game in the franchise to be done by a different studio from SNK, but I won't give it much flak as SNK did manage to make Metal Slug again after this one and I still found enjoyment out of it. Also, Trevor and Nadia are my favorite Characters in the Franchise.
Metal Slug 5=8
The one I haven't have played the least, it's still enjoyable.
Metal Slug 6=10
A return to the great alien caper! And a wonderful way to cap off the alien invasion before the finale that is Metal Slug 7/XX.
Overall, these games are amazing.… Expand
