It's a pretty decent 3D platformer. I jumped out of Tomb Raider: Legends for Xbox 360 and onto the PS2, and I had a lot more fun playing Metal Slug 3D albeit with lower quality graphics. The FMV is the best part tho, I know a lot of people aren't big fans of FMV but there's enough game content there as well. The FMV intro transitions the gamer into the game from identifying well known characters in 3D before putting you at the title screen which just reads "Metal Slug". Fortunately, unlike the majority of games with FMV which is generally intro and ending scenes, there are also FMV cut scenes between levels. The game seems very easy so far; much easier than the 2D platformers. All the voice acting is in English with Japanese subtitles. For those diehard traditional fans, a port of the Sammy Atomiswave Metal Slug 6 is still slated for a July 2006 release.

The American branch of Sony doesn't usually like selling 2D games on the PS2... Metal Slug 4 and 5 had to be bundled together, and Metal Slug 3 and SVC:Chaos weren't released in the US, they were Japan only...

Although they were released on the XBOX...

And poor Samarai Showdown V was released for the XBOX for a short period of time. I hate to see how much a copy is going to cost me...

:(

I forgot that Sony's divisions in Europe aren't as anal retentive as Sony US...

Sony US doesn't seem to understand 2D isn't necessarily bad...

That's why imports are your friends :) just use one of the few methods to run imports on your PS2.

Then again, I'd also need a PS2 :P. I wonder if it's coming to XBox, and for how much? The Samurai Shodown V for it was a bit of a disappointment, but at least it was only $30.

I had one chance to get Samarai Showdown V and I blew it. I didn't know it was going to be discontinued and become rare so quick. :(

I found a copy for $19.99 *new* at Game Stop *formerly Funcoland aka ripoffland...*

I also snagged a Playstation to Nintendo 64 adapter...I nev er even knew they existed... for $0.99 used.

The last "forbidden" game is now legally mine, except for Tetris the Grand Master 2, and I don't think there is a port for it, the closest thing is an XBOX 360 port and I'm not buying an XBOX 360 for one game...
