    It looks similiar to MS7. Is this an upgraded port/remake of that? I have it on my Cyclo but I hadn't played it enough to tell for sure.

    Did not like MS7, it was waaaay too easy. There was nothing new to it, I'd hope for some different themes but it kinda seemed like...shovelware. This looks like a port of that, but then its hard to say.

    I may pick up a old PSP so will probably pirate it but SNK isn't what it was 15 years ago.

    I still hope for Metal Slug 3rd Mission.

    What the hell. This is exactly the same game as Metal Slug 7. It should still be good but I was expecting a brand new game.

    If it looked like an upgraded X I'd think there would be more to be excited about. There hasn't been a really good one since 3...for obvious reasons though.
