Metal Slug 3 on XBLA this Wednesday

Recommended Videos

Just one Xbox Live Arcade release is scheduled for next week, but it’s a good one: Metal Slug 3 (800 Microsoft Points).

Before you say anything about the price, remember that Metal Slug 3 was also released as a stand-alone game for the original Xbox, so while the Live Arcade port might not be as cheap as other 2D games that have been ported to the service like Sonic the Hedgehog, it’s not a complete rip-off.

If you’ve never played any of the Metal Slug games before, then what’s wrong with you? The series has always been extremely fun and bizarre. For instance, when you come into contact with another zombie in Metal Slug 3, your character becomes undead and can vomit a river of blood across the entire screen. Awesome, huh?

The XBLA version of Metal Slug 3 will be online-enabled so you and a friend can help each other tackle the game’s huge bosses over Xbox Live. Does that sound like a good deal or are you going to pass on this one, Dtoiders?
