The Press Says

MobyRanks are listed below. You can read here for more information about MobyRank.
Shock Troopers was released shortly after the original Metal Slug, and they competed for position in arcades as SNK's foremost non-fighting game. Given my distaste for Metal Slug, you might guess that I am unhappy with it going on to become a major franchise, while Shock Troopers only received a single inferior sequel. Fortunately, the original is as perfect as a game can get, a fact which somewhat diminishes the disappointment from the lack of a proper follow-up.
ArcadeAll Game Guide
Learning from the successes and failures of its predecessors, Shock Troopers is one of the best specimens within the genre. Gamers looking for a bit of old-school shooter nostalgia with modern graphics should look no further.
ArcadeThe Video Game Critic
It may not quite be up to Metal Slug standards, but if you're in the mood to inflict unspeakable carnage, Shock Troopers is very, very good.
ArcadeDefunct Games
If you've played Capcom's arcade classic Mercs, you have played Shock Trooper. And even though Shock Trooper does offer some new and innovative aspects, it doesn't gain enough momentum to get past the blatant rip off.
