  1. While essentially just a more difficult remix of "Metal Slug 2," Metal Slug X is still one of the finest 2D shoot-em-ups since the original "Contra."
  2. 90
    One of the finest of shooters, because it delivers such a massive volume of exploding things, and in such wonderfully fine detail.
  3. If you own a PSone this is the best thing that has happened to it in years.
  4. A stellar representative of a bygone era of gaming that put more emphasis on skill and personality that textured polygons or sex appeal.
  5. A skewed sense of humor, combined with its frenzied gameplay, gives the game a unique flavor and makes it one of the best side-scrolling shooters out there.
  6. It's idiotic. It's also pulse-pounding, addictive, cartoony, loud and grating, and essentially engineered to lay the audio/visual Stigmata on mom and dad hard if they happen to be in the same room trying to read US News & World Report.
  7. A faithful re-creation of the popular 2-D side-scrolling arcade shooter.

    I loved this game It was so good the only other ps1 game i would ive 10 isnt on this website and trust me I played a lot of psone back in theI loved this game It was so good the only other ps1 game i would ive 10 isnt on this website and trust me I played a lot of psone back in the day that is no light statement. It was so fun to work through the smart levels with decent but detailed and intersesting graphics and it had a perfect easy to learn hard to master like games should be. It also was not repetitive at all for a side scrolling shooting game because there was constant new enemies and interesting ways to challenge the player wich is great level design. Expand

    Metal Slug X hits the Playstation frontline with a serious boom. As always, the hilarious nazi-like soldiers go out with the awesome demises Metal Slug X hits the Playstation frontline with a serious boom. As always, the hilarious nazi-like soldiers go out with the awesome demises that are expected of them. The controls are quick to learn, but long to master as you learn to be a supreme dodger. The music is slightly repetitious but adds to the overall gameplay. The fun as hell explosions are a key selling point. 2p games are even more colorful. The extra minigames are extremely addictive, if not frustrating sometimes. Combat school cuts no slack; trying to gain the instructors respect can be very tasking. Overall, their is tons of eye candy and cute things to laugh at. For the veteran arcade gamer, this game will fill that missing piece of enterntainment that is harder to find in a lot of consoles these days. Expand

As a recommendation play it with a friend and try to beat it with limited continues. Expand
