It was confirmed a long time ago that it would be part of the Anthology.

This is what I like to call a proper anthology, not that garbage like SF Anniversary was.

Ill be getting this game once i have money agian.

I have played it on PS2 and 6 is the worst slug imo (I love em all except 3).

I thought maybe it was just me so I went for a 2p run with my sister (not telling her my opinion) and she came to the same conclusion pretty quick. Then my bro game for a visit and I pulled the same thing and he too got bored as heck a few stages in.

I have put countless hours into the series and was sorely dissappointed.

Some of the things I liked:

- You can use Ralf and Clark (have some of their moves like the Argentina Back Breaker)
- Characters are now unique (Ralf takes two hits to die, for instance)
- You can carry two weapons at a time now

Played this game thrice and feel no urge to go back whatsoever.

MS2 is my favorite then.

I dunno, there is just something about that last boss battle. The way it all plays out, the way your once enemies now help you agianst a greater enemy, and the music that plays while its all going on is very epic to me, even if it is just 2D sprites.

I beg to differ there friend, 3D models have a long ways to go before they become nearly as expressive as 2D ones.

MS1 and 2 are my faves.

3 is your least favorite? *shrug* I loved X and 3 the best, followed by 1, then 5 and 4 the least. 4 was boring to me. Still haven't played 6. Does the anthology come with extras or anything? I might pick it up for the PS2.

Part 3. And yeah, that one is hard as hell. Long too. But you got to love part 3 for having multiple branches through out every level.

Yeah 3 definitely wasn't my cup of tea, I have almost zero liking for aliens and zombies as a whole and the game was pretty much centred around that. The last stage was way too long and tedious. The path branching was neat but a lot of the areas I didn't like so I ended up going the same route most of the time. Oh and I hate it for going away from the WW2 feel.

I loved 4, its kinda like the KOF2k1 of Metal Slug, not very sexy but fun as hell. It has one hell of a soundtrack too.

The way I rate em:

1/2
4/5
X
3
6

well unfortuantly SNK did add Wii controls schemes to it, but most of them are pretty dumb.

http://www.gamevideos.com/video/id/7101

Dont get me wrong though, it still has classic controls which is what I enjoyed the first 5 on. And the holding remote sideways scheme and just shaking to use a bomb looks almost dooable.

I was just hoping for a setup where you could aim up or down by pointing a cursor in the direction you wanted to shoot.
