Ça blaste dans tous les sens, ça fait boum-crack, ça ne ralentit jamais (soupir d'extase), c'est archi-détaillé graphiquement et ça peut se jouer à deux ! Un jeu qui ferait plaisir à n'importe quel GI. Rien de très original cependant.

Grizzly gore aside, however fun this game may be to pick up and play in the short-term, there just isn’t enough here to keep you going for very long. To make matters worse, you can start a new game on the same level in which your previous, extensive, offering of credits expired on. So you should be able to complete Metal Slug within an hour. Sad but true. Enjoyment is rekindled, albeit in a limited supply, due to the ‘Combat School’ mode in which you enlist in a special army and must complete certain tasks to better your skill. But like we said, this is just a mere boost to an otherwise distinct shortage of a game.

Despite the annoying loading times Super Vehicle-001: Metal Slug is an enjoyable run 'n' gun title with solid gameplay and a good range of weapons. It's more strategic and slower-paced than some other games in the genre and while I wish it had more variety it's still a fun shooter, especially with two-players.
