Metal Slug (2008) on Wii

 

So, given the superiority of control and the timeless appeal of the design, the only thing that might end up holding you back from an immediate investment of 900 Wii Points is exactly that – that the game costs 900 Wii Points. Doing the math, that's...

SNK's original arcade action classic comes back to the Wii, this time by its lonesome.

Metal Slug Anthology - Wii review at Thunderbolt Games

 

There's a man dying in front of you. His gut has been shot wide open; he's feebly struggling to keep his innards from slipping out onto his uniform. His camouflage used to be green to blend in with the jungle around you, but the blood seeping through...

I hope you still have those GameCube controllers.

Seven of the greatest run'n'gun games ever in one package ; Excellent 2-D graphics and humorous sound effects ; Each game is a perfect translation of its arcade counterpart

Wii-specific control schemes are almost entirely useless ; No support for Classic Controller ; Very bare-bones for a compilation package

No progressive scan support? I don't have a fancy-schmancy TV so I didn't even factor that in. Once again, WEAK.At first I thought that throwing a grenade by flicking the wiimote was fine too, until I actually got into some really intense action for...

"If you like Metal Slug, you've got a Wii, and you've got lunch money kicking around, pick this up."

Metal Slug Anthology

 

The definitive collection of the classic 2D action title.

On top of a great collection with multiple control configurations and difficulty settings, there is a ton of bonus features for the Metal Slug fan. These features are only available once you have earned enough tokens to unlock items in the Metal Slug...

Metal Slug Anthology review for the WII

 

Garden variety.

Seven games, no quarters; Vivid, funny animation; Control schemes for everyone

Tilting and shaking controls add little; Terrible bonus features; Old games on 'innovative new' Wii, whatever

I can't believe this is only the ten-year anniversary of Metal Slug. To a young kid like myself, the four-in-one Neo-Geo cabinets have been sitting in arcades since the beginning of time. While young bands celebrate Contra music and critics nod to...

Metal Slug Anthology Game Review - Nintendo Wii

 

The games themselves are great, but the biggest focus of this collection is the six new control schemes to get in your Metal Slug groove. Two of the schemes only use the Wii Remote, three include the Nunchuck, and the last option uses a GameCube...

Seven games full of Metal Slug goodness in one delicious package

You require arcade perfection in all its facets or have never touched a Metal Slug before

The games themselves are a blast to play, with Metal Slug 2, X, and 3 being the climax of the series. Before playing any of the games, checking the options is a must. Want a challenge? Choose the limited continues option along with a difficulty to see...

Metal Slug Anthology

 

The packaging for Metal Slug Anthology states that it contains the seven best military action games. This is a relatively bold claim, especially considering that Metal Slug X is just a revamped version of Metal Slug 2 with extra weapons and a little...

Overall:Metal Slug Anthology is not without its share of weaknesses. While ‘classic’ graphics are expected on the Wii’s Virtual Console entries, it seems like a $40 game should probably look a bit less dated. Most of the schemes taking advantage of the...

Metal Slug Anthology

 

Nintendo's Virtual Console couldn't possibly contain the carnage of this many Metal Slug games.

Beautifully smooth 2D sprite animation; classic arcade challenge

Fickle controls; one-dimensional gameplay; repetitive level design

Expert review by:

Metal Slug Anthology Wii

 

Compared to all the other Wii games available at launch, Metal Slug Anthology feels a bit out of place. This collection of 2D shooters doesn't attempt to give you new game play, it's not about using the motion control, and if anything it feels more...

Metal Slug Anthology sets out to compile seven of the best 2D shooters ever released on the Neo Geo. For the most part it succeeds, but why they chose not to offer Classic Control support is anybody's guess!
