Metal Slug 7 / XX - Game of the Month
Murikov
Welcome to the Game of the Month!

Whoever thought that SNK Playmore closed their Run n' Gun chapter with Metal Slug 6 was proved wrong in 2007, when the company announced an exclusive installment of the popular franchise for the Nintendo DS. Up to that point the handheld console was known for rather family-friendly games that made use of stylus input. Just like SNKP did with Metal Slug: Advance, they wanted to fill the handheld niche for one more time.

Metal Slug 7 was released in 2008 and garnered mixed reviews - while some players praised the new sequel with the ever-familiar controls and non-stop action, others criticized the rather low-resolution presentation and the lack of 2 players mode.

SNK Playmore kinda learned from the feedback and re-released the game in 2009 under the name Metal Slug XX for the PSP. Apart from the higher resolution, SNKP also added the sadly missed co-op mode, training school mode, a few alternative routes and even Leona Heidern as DLC character.

Thanks for GOTM Murikov Thumbs Up

I think this looks pretty good for a Slug game but by this point we'd been bludgeoned with so many identikit sequels I really didn't care about Metal Slug enough to bother buying or playing it.

I absolutely love the first game, think the 2nd could be the best in series if it didn't have slowdown and rate the third is very special indeed. After that I've only played the rest of the games briefly.

PS still can't see video here on Firefox

@Rik:

Thank you, dude! Thumbs Up

Yes, I agree with you so far that 7 / XX is nothing compared to the original trilogy. In fact I personally don't even recognize this installment as true sequel which truly would deserve the "7" in the title.

But I still think that it's a really solid handheld spin-off in the likes of Metal Slug: Advance. If we compare this game to the before mentioned, it is in fact pretty good and well-crafted. I recently spoke to a good friend who played this game on Xbox Live Arcade, and even he thought that it was a surprisingly good game.

As for the embedded Youtube videos:

You're right, they are still not watcheable in Firefox, but at least there's an official message right now showing that it's not possible anymore to embed flash videos here. I'm not sure if this is the doing of Kaz since I reported him this issue a few weeks ago and I haven't heard from him since. At least now the shortcut redirects you to the correct YT page.

Well, for what it is, I find MS 7/XX to be alright in some aspects, besides the always stagnant difficulty its good for in later titles.

Now its just being shadowed by its mobile venture lately.
