What am I supposed to write? It's METAL SLUG. A day one purchase for all NEO-GEO fans.

I made a gameplay video of the first stage:

I'll write a better review when the game gets released, but it's looking pretty good. It's better than on GGPO/Supercade when it works. It still has some desync issues, but we'll see if they get fixed. The game has support for 16:9 resolutions and some filters available.

It's pretty much a 1:1 port of the arcade game. It also has a mission mode, which lets you start from any level you have unlocked. Some people might not like the fact that your credits are limited (as in no infinite continues), but you can always go to mission mode and start from the final stage, if you are struggling to beat the game. EDIT: Apparently the amount of credits will be increased during the beta.

It's a perfect arcade port, but also a good game to play in CO-OP (local or online).

It's Metal Slug... on Steam, with online netplay. What more could one ask for?

Hopefully this is the start of many for Steam Neo-Geo games, I would love to see some of other stuff come to Steam, similar to NEO-GEO Station releases on PSN

Also has a range of graphical options, which was great since I was initially worried about the filter that the Steam storepage showed.

IM PRETTY SURE THIS IS A NO BRAINER TO PICK UP

Obviously... It's Metal Slug on Steam, with online mutiplayer and more. I do hope they're going to release METAL SLUG 1 and 2 as i rememberd having alot of fun playing them at the arcade =P

Hopefully this is a start of many for steam neo-geo games, i do hope i see more.

10\10 as i rememberd this was a outstanding game.
