Metal Slug XX Review

 

Metal Slug 7 gets released on the PSP as Metal Slug XX. Why? Who cares, get it already.

The music is, for the most part, classic Metal Slug, with themes harkening back to the older games. Nothing as memorable as Metal Slug 3, but certainly not so bland or boring as to make you want to turn it down. Blaring music and sound effects are a...

Metal Slug XX

 

Metal Slug XX is a new entry in the long running arcade franchise. Well, that's not quite true. Originally it was released on the Nintendo DS as Metal Slug 7, but it was stripped down and built back up for the PlayStation Portable. It doesn't do...

More of the same ; More of the same ; More of the same

More of the same ; No online multiplayer

I love Metal Slug, but playing the same game over and over can get a little boring, even when the action is fast and furious. If you haven’t checked out the last couple of installments, this wouldn’t be a bad purchase. If you’ve been playing the series...

Metal Slug fans know how it goes. You hold down on the D-Pad and run, killing everything that shows up in between the left side of the level and the right. Weapon upgrades are picked up. Vehicles are driven. Bosses are killed. It's the Contra formula,...

Here We Go Again

Metal Slug XX is definitely not a bad game. Ad-Hoc multiplayer is fun, the combat school is a nice break from the main game, and the main quest is surely enjoyable. But for $20, you are way better off purchasing Metal Slug Anthology. The King of...

Metal Slug XX

 

Metal Slug XX has a curious title. Have I really paid so little attention to this Contra-clone that they've managed to release twenty of these games? Is this a brand new Metal Slug spin-off that I should know about? It turns out that Metal Slug XX is...

Metal Slug purists may hate me for saying this, but it's time for this franchise to evolve. Metal Slug XX is a fun action game that simultaneously reminds me why I love AND hate this series. The great graphics and expressive characters aren't enough to...

Metal Slug XX Review

 

Many of us have fond memories playing arcade games during our childhood. Whether we played them in a game room at a pizza place or in our local arcade, these classics stuck with us. I distinctly remeber going to our local Round Table Pizza with my...

Overall, Metal Slug XX is a game that really digs deep into it's roots to bring players a bit of the past in the palm of their hands. It's a fun, portable, and addicting side scrolling shooter that reminds us why we fell in love with the original....

Metal Slug XX Sony PSP Review

 

There's no major plot here. You play as one of six soldiers of fortune (with the ability to add a seventh), gunning their way through a series of enemies, ranging from foot soldiers to heavily armored tanks to bizarre monstrosities doubling as bosses....

Only $20, two-player AdHoc, plenty of run-and-gun action through the main game and Combat School

Analog nub isn't as comfortable as the d-pad, seventh character should've been included by default, no Game Sharing option for two-players

Over the years, Metal Slug has grown into its own beast, distancing itself from the Contra series that inspired it. Recently, SNK took its run-and-gun act on the road, releasing Metal Slug 7 for the Nintendo DS. Now PSP owners get a turn with Metal...

One More Verse, Same as the First...

Great animation

Brings nothing new to the table

For players who've never had the chance to partake of Metal Slug's particular brand of madness or for those hopelessly devoted to the series, Metal Slug XX will certainly be worth the time invested. For those (like myself) who may still have feelings...

Metal Slug XX

 

Metal Slugg XX is a fantastic addition to the already surmounted stature of the Metal Slug franchise.

Amount of variety ; wireless two player co-op support ; crazy arsenal of weapons ; recognizable characters

no 2+ multiplayer option

Overall, Metal Slugg XX is a fantastic addition to the already surmounted stature of the Metal Slung franchise. The content on offer is not only staggering, it is choc-a-block full of exciting moments, featuring the deadliest gun fights, explosions,...

Metal Slug XX - Better than its DS counterpart. 81%

 

The Regular Army and its surrounding city is experiencing a brief moment of peace and are able to rebuild after the many battles that were fought. HQ receives a video transmission from the Regular Army's Intel that one of the Morden soldiers ...

Two player co-op, graphics and sound, anyone can get into it

Nothing really new
