Metal Slug 7 Preview

Doing this because of a request.



Published by:
Ignition Entertainment
Developed by: SNK Playmore
Console: Nintendo DS
Genre: Action
Number of Players: 1
Release Date: (US) November 18, 2008 (Japan) July 17, 2008 (Europe) Q4 2008 (Australia) November 21, 2008


Storyline:

The Peregrine Falcon Strike Force and the SPARROWS are on a search for General Morden and his army......again. The mission is to catch General Morden and stop his evil plans for attempting another coup d'état on the government. But Morden was defeated and everything was expected to go back to normal but a strange army from the future came to his aid and strengthened his army. Now PFSF go against Morden once again with his new and improved army but this time, put a stop to his plans once and for all.

Overview:

This game was made by SNK who made King of Fighters (<3). This is the first Metal Slug to come to the DS and hopefully not the last.

Gameplay:


This is a typical run and gun game which is really fun. You go through various levels, shooting up baddies and at the end of each level you fight a boss. There are new weapons like the thunder shot. There are also new slugs.
  • Slug Truck: A train-like machine that work similar to the Metal Slug except the cannon must be connected to the unit to access the cannon weapon.
  • Slug Gigantus: Slug Gigantus is a giant robot that is capable of massive firepower. The enemy also has a similar unit piloted by Allen O'Neil.
  • Heavy Armor: Resembles a cross between the Rebellion LV Armor and the Ptolemaic powered armor.


Features:

It's just a one player game so no wifi.

Cast:

  • Marco: His default weapon has twice the power.
  • Tarma: While riding in or on a Slug, durability and the effects of power-ups are doubled; additionally, the vulcan cannon's power is increased by 50%. He also is capable of using Vulcan Fix when on or in any vehicle.
  • Fio: Begins each mission with the Heavy Machine Gun. Weapon supply is also increased by 50%.
  • Eri: Receives twice as many grenades upon starting or resupplying. When throwing, she can aim in a specific direction.
  • Ralf: Melee attack speed is doubled, at the expense of weapon and grenade supplies being halved. He can also use the special 'Vulcan Punch' attack, melee strikes capable of damaging vehicles. Can take two hits from most attacks before losing a life.
  • Clark: gets an extra chance at start of respawn. He can perform his 'Argentina Backbreaker' against most non-vehicle enemies, and he's immune to damage during the move, also earning generous amounts of points with such action.


Controls:

The controls are traditional. A,B are used to shoot and move. X and Y switches in between weapons. Shoulder buttons make the character roll. (LOL Barrel I kid)

Screenshots:


Awesome grenade. (Michael Bay joke :P)

Cool, but... No more arcades now? ;-; Also, what the hell are Clark and Ralf still doing in this game? They don't belong here, they're KOF characters D: <
