    Is this a joke? It's the year 2015 and the rest of the world (Americans included) still think of Nazis whenever Germany is mentioned. It's unfortunately something that just won't be dropped.

    I guarantee you, with Americans at least, Kraut is a derogatory word used towards Germans very much the same way chink is with Chinese and gook with Vietnamese.

    I agree with Spoon, too - Nazis as bad guys, *again*? boring.

    I really feel like all the talent, time and money has been wasted on this project. I mean, by all means, this looks great, but it feels like one of those weird South Korean late '90/early '00 jamma bootleg that refused half-remade sprites from famous games.

    Why would I play this when I can play the original?

    The talent and skills are there! Why are they 'wasting' it on a clone? Especially since MS has a very distinctive style..

    The title is offensive and in bad taste.
    Also the music is awful.

    Project Y looks far more promising.

    I couldn't have said it better myself. They have the resources to make a great original title and they are spending it all trying to re-create something legendary. You will never be Nazca. Stop trying. Be yourself and maybe someone (read not a collector who just wants another box on their shelf) will actually appreciate your artistry.

    I don't mind the Nazi theme, hasn't been done on a game like this so I'm all for it. What bothers me is that it looks so washed out, no consistency with the colors and the shading is so subtle that it looks like Vigilante, not in a good way though.

    At least Vigilante had black Skinheads. Kraut needs to get some black Nazi's in there.

    If they were going the Metal Slug rip-off route they could have at least changed the time period and setting. Like others mentioned, maybe something futuristic like Cyber Lip. I'm sure they're working on the vomiting zombies as we speak. Screw originality.

    No, should have went with the North Koreans as the villains. Or maybe a Cold War Soviet throwback.

    Seconded. That'd be a fun and, most importantly, original theme for a 2D action game. Goldeneye setting + Metal Slug game mechanics: sign me up.
    Wanted MVS carts:

    Alpha Mission 2, Real Bout Fatal Fury, Sengoku 2

    This may not be something I'll buy, but I'm still amazed at NGDev's skills to make these games for Neo. I know there is a lot of criticism of it being a Slug clone, but there is an extreme amount of work that goes into this. This may have been something they always wanted to make, their take on Metal Slug. I can't bash them for that.

    I'm a huge NGDEV fanboy and even worked for NGDEV on Gunlord as a tester and design contributor for the boss mechanics. I've got all the MVS LEs they've released so far, but I'm disappointed with what they've shown here so far.

    First off, whether the title is offensive or not is irrelevant. Any title that spawns a debate on whether or not it is offensive is a bad title. Period.

    Secondly, they are cloning a game that is one of the best examples of the genre for ANY system, ON the system it was made for, where literally everyone in their target audience will already have at least one Metal Slug game. This doesn't make any sense! Maybe they will hit this one out of the park, but the bar is set extremely high.

    I think in addition to this is the fact that you can get Metal Slug games for less than 50 bucks, so a 400+ dollar game would really need to surpass MS to make me interested. I guess if you are a MS fanatic this could be viewed as a new version and that would be very appealing, but I am just not in that camp.

    If you're a MS fan and haven't played Demon Front....get that instead.

    Exactly. Maybe back in the day if this was released it wouldn't be getting any criticism but now comparing prices it just doesn't make sense to own it unless it is seriously revamped.

    Oh yeah, Demon Front is quite fun. Both that and Gunforce 2 / Geostorm are worth playing, for fans of this type of game.

    I'll skip this release this time, and wait for a more polished Mental Slug 2
    The good point is that now they have the core done, so we just need to wait a year or two until they do a more decent game with it to invest 400 bucks

    +1 supporting Demon Front its a great game, I just miss one could threw grenades or whatever like crazy lol would do the game smoother

    Huh....not sure what to think right now. On the one hand it does look tempting, but on the other it does seem a bit rough, visually. For now, at least.

    Although I can"t wait for the Ikari style game I can't say I'm that disappointed that we're getting a Slug clone first. As long as it's fun to play, why not!
