Skyrim player 173 ,’s a thing?

The game is good, references many things from the past of Metal Slug, with interesting new characters and amazing art. However...this game really wants your money.
First, there’s the whole “gacha” aspect of it (gacha: a game that uses things similar to loot boxes, with chance involved). No matter how much you spend, you’re at the mercy of the game at all times. Here’s an example: spent nearly $20 worth of ingame currency and didn’t receive one thing for the target unit.
Secondly, if you try to go online, you’re already dead. Most units in the game are broken, and that’s just how it goes. They’re all extremely overpowered, and instead of being fixed, they just become more broken in future events. People who spend a lot of money, as you can guess, will have these units at their max level, and will basically smite you without mercy.
Lastly, the game is definitely pandering. Almost every event unit is female in some way, and many of them wear the least clothes possible and have the biggest breasts possible. That’s not even including the seasonal event reskins, but that’s a whole other argument.
In conclusion, the game could be amazing, but suffers from its creators not caring about balancing what it has. It’s art is great, the nostalgia is real, but it tries to take your money too often to feel rewarding.

Great game, although...

I'm a recent player of the Metal Slug franchise, and I absolutely adore most to almost all of their games! The character designs, story ideas, settings, and soundtrack are all unique! It's what interested me in the first place about playing the game.
Although, some of the characters seem out of place once you play MSA, compared to the rest of the games. You've built this setting where it's a gruesome battlefield, with crazy yet amazing machinery for destruction, terrifying threats such as Allen and Morden, and overall just a chaotic situation that really captures what a war can be— Then you see some little girl, running around and taking everything out without breaking a sweat.
It doesn't make sense, especially for characters such as Beatriz, Odette, Rita, Ami, etc..., to be in a game such as this. They look too cutesy and delicate, nothing suitable for war. I'm not saying that cute characters are not allowed or anything— I'm just saying that it overall does not suit the setting.
I hope you manage to find and read this,
Thank you!

Fun game, better have cash to spend though....

While I do enjoy this game it is yet another game where unless you’re paying you’re not going to have any chance against those who do or for that matter the ability to just pick up and play whenever you want every time I turn around I’m having to spend money to buy metals to buy sortie points or jump on some special deal that just happens to coincide with a event that has some new unit you can only get By earning points which you can only get by battling, which takes sortie points... I think it’s funny how people are always saying well how come you don’t just stop playing these paid to play games if you don’t want to pay ungodly amounts of money. the answer is it seems like they’re all paid to play anymore which I don’t mind if it was a reasonable amount of money....I miss games where I just paid $20 a month to play
