The classic arcade shoot-em-up.

Keep note that this version is a port of the iOS version, so while it's not exactly a perfect arcade port, it still plays and handles rather well. There are some slight sound anomolys with the emulation, but quite frankly it's as close as you're gonna get with the true METAL SLUG experience on Steam.

As for the game itself, 3 is known to be the best (and the hardest) of the series. And after 14 years, this still holds true. Saying that, once you learn the patterns of the enemies and bosses, and know the best routes to take and where the weapons and vehicles drop, you'll be mastering the game soon enough.

Online play seems to be pretty solid, provided you and your partner have good connections to each other.

Overall, I would say; Yes, buy this game if you're a fan of the series. If you're looking for a better emulation version, though, see if you can pick up the Metal Slug Anthology for the PS2 or Wii, which has the games 1-6 and is a really stable port.

This version is still perfectly playable despite the slight emulation annoyances.

Have you ever played Silver Surfer (NES)? It's like that, but AWESOME. Be ready to never stop shooting, to evade flashing bullets, to run out of bombs, to die die die die!!!

The game's enjoyability is higher because they've got a lot of guns, vehicles and enemies! Also, you can play with a friend and use a controller!

What are you waiting for? :)

The game is awesome and is my favourite metal slug. ...Oh wait, im talking about the arcade/xbox version. This PC port is a slow piece of crap, it has alot of sound problems like the go sound being horribly bitcrushed and ♥♥♥♥, The controls suck monkey balls but can be changed (thank god!) and overall this port is ♥♥♥♥. Makes me wanna puke. if you wanna play metal slug 3, get a original xbox and buy the game for it (should be cheap),get a emulator for pc (winkawaks etc) or simply get a arcade cab.
"arcade-perfect" port my @ss.

This was a great game. The port is one of the worst I've ever seen. Multiplayer is near unplayable.

I am sure this game would be fun.. If it worked. It crashes after the start-screen prompts me to pres any key, and there is no solution availiable. I have tried everything.

Do not buy this game. I thought that if I get this game I will have unlimited credits. I thought I can set my own credits and life. You get only 20 credits no matter the level of difficulty. If you used up all your 20 credits, too bad you cant continue and you lose. I spent $8 on this game give me my unlimited credits, give me the full control of this game.

Diversão ao estilo clássico arcade. É melhor se for jogado em dupla, mas é uma pena não suportar mais jogadores.
