What do these ratings mean?

Failure is cool again!

If we, as gamers, are honest with ourselves, the ones that came before us had a rough go of it.  Games, while amazing and innovative, were difficult.  Metal Slug Anthology is a celebration of one of my personal favorites from this era, with a collection of arcade greats.  However, this is really not the kind of game you would usually buy unless you are a hardcore fan of the series.

The truth it, no matter how much I like this game, its not forgiving in any sense of the word.  Forget dying a few times, I have this game rented for five days and have yet to beat a single game in the Anthology.  That is not to say I am not enjoying myself or having a great time reliving memories, but at the end of the day this game is difficult. 

Not only is this game difficult, but quite frankly the "new" parts are horrible!  The menus are painfully bad, the controls are a little off, the "extras" are silly and there is nothing here that couldn't have been delivered through Virtual Console.  This game will be hours of fun for you and a friend, but as an addition to your budding Wii library?  I'm passing on it and so should you.
