Playing any Metal Slug game - and number 6 is no exception - it’s impossible not to smile at the sheer vitality of the animation and the frenetic scramble of the gameplay, which, after so many instalments, is testament to the sound foundation of the Metal Slug formula. But when it’s all over, a slightly bitter aftertaste lingers and a distinctly underwhelming sense that SNK Playmore is merely going through the motions. Metal Slug fans will enjoy it, even if this isn’t a classic by the standards of the series, but people looking for something new here will be disappointed. It now remains to be seen if SNK Playmore can evolve the series into something that evokes the magic of the early games, but on this showing it seems they’re content to wring every last drop from a franchise that honestly deserves better.
