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


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...

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 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!

Metal Slug Anthology - Wii Reviews - The Armchair Empire


It's universally agreed upon that Metal Slug is pretty awesome. Thankfully, SNK has realized this, and despite their financial ups and downs, have committed themselves to supplying as much Metal Slug as possible to ...

6 and a half games for a mere $40US; Most of these games are excellent

Crappy control schemes; Minor issues with the ports

Metal Slug Anthology Wii Review


Like a new lick of paint on an old shed, Metal Slug Anthology on the Wii, has made the old appear as new. But sometimes even a freshly painted old shed can look worse, if painted the wrong colour.

Metal Slug Anthology


The term anthology is best described as a collection of poems but SNK must have a different dictionary to the norm as their version of Metal Slug: Anthology (MS: A) is actually a collection of seven Metal Slug games sitting on one Wii disk and marks...

Metal Slug Anthology review


What makes a good game? A lame, bravado-laden military motif, light on the narrative but heavy on the guns? A franchise concept, subject to instalment after instalment, with only minor additions and improvements year after year? Slow-moving, lumpy,...

A generally great compilation with only minor problems.

Metal Slug Anthology


Metal Slug is one of videogaming's biggest cult franchises, mixing intense side-scrolling shooting action with screen-filling bosses in an experience which is intensely thrilling from beginning to end. Such is its appeal in the creation and perfection...

Graphically, every edition in this anthology of Metal Slug titles remains faithful to its original release, slowdown an' all. Every game up until the most recent in the series shares a hard, pixelated edge to its appearance, but as far as this reviewer...
