Metal Slug 3 is my favorite. It's huge, with lots of branching paths, and the difficulty balance is excellent. My second favorite is Slug X. It's the only time in the series that they did a revised version of a game, and the extra attention shows.

Both are essential run 'n guns, in my opinion.

Quoted for truth. Just buy X and 3 and you're good to go.

I totally agree with that! In general. BUT-- IMO, on this particular platform, I consider Metal Slug 2 to be the better one on account of the controls and other issues here.
