SNK truly mastered the ability to produce fun games in 2D such as Metal Slug which reminded the gaming cognoscenti there was life and gameplay without polygons. Pure refined game mechanics to bring a smile to the face of the most grizzled gaming veteran. Some lovely touches such as reflections in puddles and chickens swimming through the water. There is something strangely gratifying in rescuing all hostages just as much as there is in using the flamethrower on parachutists as they fall from the sky. The best conversion on a non-SNK system due to the Saturn's 2D prowess. In fact it appears very close to the Neo Geo CD version, even down to the grenade juggling monkey loading screen.
