Sometimes sequels can best what has come before. You be the judge with “Metal Slug 2.” It’s got an arcade feel and plenty of action sequences to keep you playing.
The backstory’s simple: two female recruits, Eri, a former super agent, and, Fio, the only daughter of a famous military family, join Regular Army’s PF Squad Marco and Tarma, in order to put an end to Gen. Morden’s dastardly plans. The METAL SLUG arsenal expands with the introduction of new slug vehicles such as the “Slugnoid” (a bipedal tank), “Slug Flyer” (a fighter plane), and the “Camel Slug,” a camel equipped with a Vulcan Cannon.
