Die Metal Slug Serie steht seit jeher für unkomplizierten Ballerspaß, die nicht nur bei Shoot’em-Up - und Retro-Fans für leuchtende Augen und nasse Hände sorgt. Im bewährten 2D-Gewand der Vorgänger, präsentiert sich Metal Slug 5 wie gewohnt klassisch und vor allem bleihaltig. Wie viel Spaß die mittlerweile dritte XBOX- bzw. PS2-Auskopplung macht, lesen Sie wie immer im Test!

Overall Metal Slug 5 is fun, but is lacking some of the variety, depth and attention to detail of the best Metal Slugs. I recommend getting either the excellent Metal Slug 3 or the original Metal Slug first.

If you're not expecting anything more than what you got from Metal Gear 1 - 4 then Metal Slug 5 will probably satisfy you for the 30 minutes it will take you to beat it. But the series is starting to run out of steam and it's going to take something bigger than a slide move or a new weapon to kick it back into shape. This series needs a makeover fast, or maybe just a rest from active duty.
Metal Slug 5 est un épisode très décevant, surtout au regard des excellents Metal Slug X ou Metal Slug 3. Une durée de vie ridicule, une difficulté mal gérée, quelques ralentissements, une absence de nouveautés dignes de ce nom et beaucoup moins d'humour que dans les précédents volets, voici ce qui vous attend dans cet opus. Il est certain que cet épisode ne fera pas date et ce malgré la touche graphique inimitable ou le plaisir de sauver une fois encore de pauvres naufragés barbus perdus dans un monde cartoonesque auquel il manque, ce coup-ci, une once de folie.

But hey, it keeps you from hanging around on street corners and spitting at old ladies, then job done. It'll pass the time if for some reason you're sitting around twiddling your thumbs in anticipation of the release of Spy Hunter: Nowhere to Run or something. If you're after a quality retro package you should opt for Taito Legends or something with lots of Sonic games in it. If you're a Neo Geo completist, or some kind of freak that can't think of a better way to spend £20 for an hour's debauchery, then go ahead. Metal Slug 5 is fun while it lasts.
