Pocket Power: Metal Slug 1st Mission

Hardcore Gamer: While it’s easy to point out shortcomings of Metal Slug 1st Mission, at the end of the day it’s sort of like criticizing Citizen Kane for not being in 3D. This is a fourteen year old handheld game on a 16 bit console that does practically everything it can to live up to the AES/MVS versions of the game. It hasn’t aged as well as those versions and there’s issues that were always present (like hiding levels via multiple branching), but thanks to its unique gameplay and the handheld’s fantastic controls, it and its sequel are arguably the best way to experience the series on the go.
