You are trying a little too hard to bait, cut down on the expletives- it’s clear you are just using them to rile people, you have to use them with precision you attention whore fuck. You aren’t the angry video game nerd. Picking on the graphics was a good call tactically because that’s what a lot of people love about the series. Probably your best play. Perhaps in the future you would well to sound a little bit more like a pseudo intellectual, that’s a pretty good way to molest people these days. Sprinkle some two dollar words in there and say something like “ultimately metal slug is held back by its bamboozling, incomprehensible attention to detail and vapid World War Two aesthetic.” and so on.
Weak Bait, but I think with even more practice you can get yourself two lines of replies.
Anyway, the graphics are objectively good. No other game nails fat like metal slug.

>Are the ones on Steam alright?
for the most part, my only problem is that the difficulty works different and you'll notice it immediately if you're used to the original version. You pick between easy-normal-hard instead of 1-8 so your gameplay difficulty increases with each stage. For example, playing on normal means the first two stages are set to level 1-2, the third ups to level 3, and stage four locks the difficulty to level 4 for the rest of the run.
It's weird and it's the reason I play the games on emulator instead.

The gameplay is tedious and frustrating. Knowing Japanese doesn't make it any less so. Your character moves as slow as molasses and combat demands awkward precision with every swing. Enemies constantly break out of your combos, anti-air you, poke from range, and counter as you're about to attack. It's not terribly difficult due to the plethora of items at your disposal but the constant mini-management gets old fast, and you pretty much need items to beat bosses.
It's a cool fighting system but it's executed like shit. Looks gorgeous though.
