Metal Slug Anthology - hands on

Seven shooters and six ways to play them

The remaining control methods are more traditional: Wii Remote uses the wand just like an old NES pad without the tilty aspect; Nunchuk Only puts most of the action on the attachment, using the analog stick and two buttons over there to get the job done; a Nunchuk and remote mode puts shooting on a regular button but uses motion controls for grenades; and the Arcade mode has you holding the remote upward like a joystick, controller the action just like an arcade cabinet of ye olden times.

But it all boils down to seven different games that do the same damn thing - screenfulls of crap exploding. Anthology should be breaching retailer fronts around the same time Wii lands- November 19.

  2. INFINITE AMMO! WHY ARE YOU NOT SHOOTING?!
  3. IT"S A ROCKET DONKEY! USE IT TO KILL!
