Which one would you rate the best overall, must have. This poll has the ability to choose more than one so pick what you want if you cant make up your mind.
I correctly picked the third, but am disappointed that the sixth isn't even an option.
In all seriousness, I don't understand why everyone hates Metal Slug 6. Sure, I could nit-pick over the really little things -- like the death throes being unnecessarily altered -- but that would just be silly. The truth of the matter is this: it's a great game that ended a very cool story arc. It started with Metal Slug X, continued with Metal Slug 3, and concluded with Metal Slug 6.
Yeah, that's right; I just threw Metal Slug 2 under the proverbial bus.
Dude, you're a freaking tool.
Metal Slug 6 does not end any arc. There was never any arc to begin with. It has the worst level designs, the worst level bosses, the crappiest final boss (outside of, perhaps, Metal Slug 5), and a lack of any of the original Metal Slug magic.
Metal Slug 3 was the last really original Metal Slug, as 95% of the people here will agree. Metal Slug is the best: 'nuff said. Who cares about the difficulty level. It's all about the magic of the Neo•Geo and 16-bit in the mid '90s.
Keep your fingers crossed, maybe that'll drain the blood back to your brain.
P.S. You do realize Battlesmurf's name is "Grant" and not "Jose," right?
I'm not going to argue against the quality of Metal Slug or Metal Slug 3; they're both great, quality titles. However, I will argue that Metal Slug 6 stands on equal footing with either. That's all I'm sayin'.
