Metal Slug 3 is the third title in the franchise, but it was the first one to find it's way to steam and is it a welcome addition ?

Metal Slug 3 you are once again tasked to defeat General Morden, but you don't play Metal Slug for the story, you play it for the awesome gameplay.

The game is a treat and is probably my favorite in the series. You run to the right and shoot everything in sight, once in a while you get inside a vehicle and blow stuff up, it's simple as that.

The pixel art style is very charming and some of the best looking graphics.

The soundtrack is awesome and it's great to listen to when you blow up everything in sight.

The game runs smoothly and it should run on almost every system so you should be good to go.

Metal Slug 3 is awesome and if you don't own it by now, just do yourself a favor and buy it right now cause it's friggen awesome.

Final Rating:
8/10 - Buy it

Review in English/Spanish
Análisis en Inglés y Español:

English:
Third part of the Metal Slug series. This time there’s an alien invasion, clones, yetis and zombies all in one fun package. Port seems to be nicely done, no slowdowns and there's even a few extras to unlock.

Español:
