Good run and gun, beautiful sprite art, quarter muncher.

Played this not long after playing Metal Slug 2 to compare. To be honest, this is basically just the "definitive" version of Metal Slug 2. The only two differences I could spot were the much improved optimization (less slow downs and such) and maybe a few different enemy placements and entries that were slightly improved over 2.
That said, this is a great, classic run and gun game. Beautiful sprites and animations on some very impressive for the time hardware, and made by some of the most talented sprite artists ever.

shooty arcade game with cool graphics :)

Review in progress:
Decent arcade game. Amazing sprite work.

Any game that lets you play as a pretty girl with glasses and fill a bunch of Nazi aliens with hot lead is pretty good

Played this in the arcade, very fun game, got very close to beating it but ran out of money :(

Metal Slug Anthology review series entry #1:
You can't go wrong with a classic like Metal Slug X. This was my first introduction to the franchise when I was 12 and only had a PS1 with this, The Lion King Game, and Toy Story 2. I'd play it to the end in one sitting, because I couldn't save the game, and thanks to Metal Slug Anthology, now I can, which allowed me to save my progress midway through yesterday so i could finish it today.
I always loved this game, even if I I always end up with my fingers aching after the final boss. I can't think of a flaw, outside of maybe a nitpick with the regular enemies at the end taking too many shots to die.
Metal Slug X is the hard type of way that I like, one that challenges you to stand up again and keep on fighting, and I'd say the franchise as a whole is a staple of run 'n' gun games everywhere. It's fun, challenging, a total riot to play, and it's so satisfying to blow things up using the assorted arsenal the game has to offer.

Kids these days they don't know about how it was in the 'cade. I used to shove old Billy "Measles" Harwood around in the mall bathroom stalls until he'd fork up the money his mom gave him to buy insulin. Then I'd get a Surge down at the corner with Wick'd Johnny and exchange to quarters. I roughed up lil Billy every other Thursday for about 4 years until he ran in front of a Ford Contour. Poor old bastard. Anyway I still didn't make it past the third boss. I totally got roflcoptered by that Metal Slug. Lost my virginity on this very cabinet though. Awesome.

Basicamente o mesmo game, mas senti está mais longo e se estendendo mais em relação ao anterior, começando de maneira divertida , mas no final eu já estava bem saturado, mostrando o como essa franquia está saturada para min.

Çocukluğum canlanır gözümde. Halen arada oynatır. SNK'nın en iyi işlerinden.

Metal slug X: Prepare to Die edition ( X?)

primeiro jogo a gente nunca esquece

2nd game doin good. I enjoy how the games tell a story through the stages. Not many run & guns do that.

Em pleno 2023, jogado num PS1 slim, numa TV de tubo, revezando o controle entre eu e meu amigo de fase em fase.
Algo me diz que esse foi o jeito certo de jogar.

Eu não tenho nada a reclamar, Metal Slug X junto ao 3 são os melhores jogos da franquia, gráficos lindos, gameplay frenética e junto a todas as melhorias que esse jogo teve em relação ao 2, fazem dele um must play para fans de run and gun.

I played Commando on Miniclip a lot as a kid, and got blown away when I finally played Metal Slug. Top notch spritework and 2D sidescrolling action.

Originally played this at an arcade back in 2016, I didn't even know what SNK was at the time but this game was so cool that I held onto the memory of "that video game that looks like a sunday morning comic strip where you turn into a mummy" until 2020 when I finally ended up buying the game for my Nintendo Switch where once every other week I will boot up the game and casually play through it because it's just that much fun to start a round.

literally just better metal slug 2, pretty much serves as a total replacement for 2, so just play this instead of that and badda bing badda boom. Pretty much takes everything the first metal slug did and just does MORE! more banger levels, more banger music, more gameplay mechanics like turning fat or into a zombie to change how your weapon handles. Banger game.

gorgeous spritework in all these games, seriously fantastic

my first metal slug its pretty good

Basicamente um "Metal Slug 2 Definitive Edition" pois e o mesmo jogo com algumas pequenas adicições, inimigos novos e alguns powerups com buff, de resto e o mesmissimo jogo do inicio ao fim.

Improvement over the first game just by being slightly better in every department all around. A really great time
