Metal Slug 3 PC Game Full Version Download Free is all about shooting stuff before it shoots you – a game that’s true to its retro roots – but strangely enough, it doesn’t show it’s age in its gameplay. Despite it being a straight up port of a four-year-old game, Metal Slug 3 still a complete blast to play, and stranger still, it’s hard to explain just how that’s possible. There are a million side-scrolling shooters out there, but Metal Slug 3 is undoubtedly heads above them all.
It never deviates from the standard side-scrolling shooter formula of throwing a million enemies on the screen so that the player can somehow find a way to compensate with quick reflexes and sharp timing, but it still feels strangely unique. There’s also this undeniable feeling of satisfaction that overcomes you when you wade through a hail of bullets to obliterate enemies, and that in itself just might be what Metal Slug 3 is all about: providing brief flashes of old school gaming nirvana that’s hard to find anywhere else nowadays.
In an age where it takes millions of intricately woven polygons filled with bump mapping to wow the masses, Metal Slug 3 is somewhat of an anomaly. It’s easy to dismiss Metal Slug 3 simply because it’s 2D, but it really does look great even if it’s not technically advanced. There haven’t been any improvements from the arcade version, but it’s a near flawless port ‘ in fact, the framerate hitches that often occurred in the arcade can’t be found in the Xbox version.
Yes, the 2D sprites are in a low resolution, but that’s made up with the incredible attention to detail. Subtle and not so subtle jokes abound everywhere and make it worth running through each level a few times.
