Metal Slug 3 Review

Neo Geo Box Art
     Hello everyone and happy Wednesday, hope you had a good Valentine's and Presidents Day, today I'm hopping into my favorite arcade game, and in my opinion is part of the best running arcade series there ever was: Metal Slug 3.  Developed and published by SNK, Metal Slug 3 released in March 23, 2000 for arcade systems worldwide.  The third game in the popular run and gun series, MS3 added new features to series such as more weapons and bosses, along with a little editing to the levels.  The objective of the game is to run and shoot at enemies as you progress through the level, throwing grenades and picking up other guns along the way.  This can be accomplished by freeing POW's who will give you weapons or points.  There are many levels with many different enemies ranging from soldiers to zombies to aliens, really cool stuff.  There many weapons to take on your opponents with including the machine gun, rocket launcher, flamethrower, shotgun, a knife used for melee attacks, and your basic pistol. Then there is the most powerful weapon of all; the Metal Slug, a versatile tank like vehicle that kicks ass and is decked out with machine gun turrets and

powerful cannons that blow enemies away. While Metal Slug is fun going solo, it is double the fun going with two players allowing you to work together and conquer bosses with a better success rate.  While I hope that at one point in your lives you played Metal Slug at a pizza arcade or someplace with arcade games.  This game will always hold a special place in my heart, as I'd like to think it does for anyone who played arcade games as a child.  I hope you all have enjoyed this review and I will be back next week with another post.  Until then, have fun. This has been Jacob Arnold, signing off.
