Released January 2nd 2008, Metal Slug 3 from Japanese developer SNK PLAYMORE CORPORATION, with its fast-paced, multi-path action and gorgeous post 8-bit graphics brings both outstanding and consistently fresh gameplay and legitimately humor entertainment to the XBOX 360 Live Arcade and yet it is conspicuously absent from Microsoft’s own year-end gamers’ polls. Maybe it is somehow considered a 2007 release, or a an original Xbox re-release, but technically it is a 2008 XBLA release and should have figured in this year’s awards. Plus playing as a blood-spewing zombie rules.
For whatever reason this great ad for Xbox 360 never aired. Maybe it’s because society doesn’t mass John Woo styled flash mobs invading airport terminals. Whatever, it rocks. Jump in.
