Metal Slug 7 is a fun game, and one that all Metal Slug fans should try out, although the Nintendo DS may not have been the best choice of platform. The run & gun gameplay offers a great but very short experience. You'll want to play through the seven levels again increasing the total gameplay to a few hours at best, so it's hard to recommend his as a full retail title. Those with an Xbox 360 should consider waiting to play the Live Arcade version, which will most likely be superior and cheaper. Ultimately the Nintendo DS version of Metal Slug 7 falls short of content, especially considering the lack of a much need multiplayer mode.
