But at its core Metal Slug 4 feels like nothing more than a remake of the first three games, it barely adds anything new to the genre and often feels more like an expansion pack than anything. All of the problems found in past games - not being able to shoot diagonally, easy difficulty level, etc. - all show up in this game. And to make matters worse, this experience lasts all of about 45 minutes, which could be a problem for anybody expecting a deeper experience. The truth is that there is nothing in Metal Slug 4 that you didn't get in Metal Slug 3, all the way down to graphics, sound, and game play. It's not that this is a bad game; it just doesn't do anything to keep it from looking like everything else.
