Overall: ah metal slug...old freind, this is the bundle of metal slug 4 and 5...upon renting or buying this bundle, first take out metal slug four and put it under your drink that you will be enjoying during this time you will be play metal slug 5 the better of the two...i hate to say it. but metal slugs getting old and it needs to keep up..im not saying go 3d im saying go in better 2d...but dont stop making them...if your a fan like me buy it..or rent it...check it out at least respect the old school Gameplay: it plays very well. very tight and responsive which is one reason why the series holds on...good good
unlike the third one on the xb, this one has infinite conitues...it kinda kills the challenge but the point is to make it through without dying once...ala contra! but this is contra on speed Graphics: well this is where things wither some...i have no problem with the 5th one but the 4th is just a remix almost like metal slug x was you can now see the cannibalism going on bosses made out of parts of other bosses and just the same stuff again and again...mind you its well animated and i love the detail but its been it three games since...five has more improvements and more new untis and weapons and the bosses are better in five than in four...this is a testament of courage of those who keep this what at least twelve year old hardware puting out spite munching madness i still respect..but its time to use a new board sammys new board they use on guilty gear would be ideal hint hint Sound: good sound i suppose all the mayhem going on the screams the bombs and
explosion..i think they even added voices in the music on the 5th one nice... Suggestions: new graphics board...update but do not repeat do not go 3d or i wont care any more...just dont cannibalize of your sprites and call it a new game...no
just keep going just get with sammy and get them to show you the guilty gear game...imagine metal slug with guilty gear graphics!! awesome im in line already
