Always thought the DS was the perfect platform for 2D shooters.

Yeah, it's irony how the coolest games back in the day now are the coolest games (well, genre anyway) on the handhelds!

Well it's really the Super Nintendo 2 IMO.

When you play a DS game, you remember what is was to just play a game and enjoy it for what it was, not just graphics...

I guess I'm somewhat old-school, NDS is perfect.

I've played all the Metal Slugs up to 5 I think on the MAME machine. I like 2D side scroller, so will get this one.

Oooh, perhaps a good present for my GF, so I can play it =D

Leord3499d ago

For having a girlfriend, or being able to buy the game? ;)

Maticus3499d ago

Haha, a long-used tactic of males. Keep it secret!

Fortunately, my GF would NEVER come here =)

Leord? Is that you? Are you buying me a game sweetie? You're so lovely. I've got a present for you.
