The Coop Posted April 4, 2007 Author Report Share Posted April 4, 2007 Metal Slug 3. This game's a real ball buster, even on the easiest setting. With so many different types of enemies, and the multiple effects they can have on your character, you've got a lot to make it through just to get to final level. If you get there, you're in for a level that's almost as long as the previous ones combined. And just when you think you've won... you're proven wrong. I won't spoil what the final boss is, but it's a bitch to take down. Besides being able to fall off of it (and plummet to your death), it has several attacks that pretty much cover it's surface. One is a ring blast that seems easy to dodge, but isn't, as there's really only one safe spot from it. The second attack is a set of red orbs that have random trajectories as they come up, and them fall down the screen. Only two attacks, but this boss also has a lot of hit points, which makes for much jumping and dodging as you slowly pick away at its health. The only reason I beat this thing, was because I got tired of reaching the final mission and running out of continues ever since I bought the XBox version were it was first released. So I used a little "Free Play" feature in the Metal Slug Anthology, to finally get some sense of satisfaction. Cheat win? You bet. But it felt good Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
