    Honestly liked the game ok, the controls didn't seem nearly as wonky as most say. yes Auto aim seems really bad after prime. but i've had no real troubles with it. Storyline yeah that's where it's just bad. Samus shouldn't cry over everything that got old fast. Pretty sure in the beginning she almost admits to hooking up with adam, but she was young and niave. it sounded to me like team ninja may have put in a line about her mistake getting involved with her commanding officer but she was young and niave and nintendo caught it and ripped the sexual part out. not losing her power-ups during some crash or something... what?! Pretty sure that is what i hated about this game the most. You get the Varia suit after being done with oh 89% of the sector you need it for.

    Brawl in the family #268 says it best, or at least that i've found.

    First off:
    When one over looks gameplay and mechanics they are reviewing a film.....games are not film....stop treating games like film....

    2:
    Metroid is best applied with minimal back story surrounding Samus, she should remain a mystery.

    3: Most of the story surrounding Samus in AM is bad, cliches I can handle....bad warped ones...not so much.

    4:Metroid Prime 1-2 is the apex of the series in game design, AM tries to expand on it but fails do to issues with gmeplay and mechanic flow half of which are due to over simplification and the damn imprecise WII mote.

    In final
    AM is ok, above average in the action genre below average for a Nintendo flagship title..... which is probly just a sign of the times as gaming is getting dimer and dumber across the board...

    I bought this game yesterday and i actually like it a lot. The story parts aren't too inconvenient if you're not feeling Samus's moodiness. As for the game play, I really like the control scheme. It makes me feel like I'm 6 playing the original on my NES again. The game play is accessible to many, but still challenging as the game progresses. I think Morgan was a little to aggressive in her take on the game.

    Coming from someone like me who looked at this game non-objectively, I would recommend a second look. 1. It's easily the most flashy game on the Wii. 2. The action, once you've got it down is awesome. Fast paced and challenging. 3 Its just fun.

    Go rent it at least...

    About the story and Samus's character... uh... well I'm not too thrilled. BUT, i can see how nintendo made it's error! This is one of the few, maybe the first, games nintendo made that had an complex story, AND they where developing a character who didn't have a voice or much of a back story for almost 20 years. So, i'm guessing this was REALLY hard for them to do! Hopefully, the reception will help Nintendo learn from their mistakes.

    It's still a good game in my opinion

    it seems like this game would have been better if it used the nunchuck for movement, and it just limited your ability to play in first person most of the time

    after all the great reviews form this game from Famitsu/IGN/Gamespot/etc I knew I wanted Metroid OM- normally I get games used about a month after release- but after the travesty of the X-Play review and how it was completely divorced from reality I went ahead and bought it on Thursday- I am about 5 hours in and the game is great! thank god no more prime FPS! and I LIKE cut-scenes! so I guess X-Play's bad review sold another unit for Nintendo (^__^)

    X-play has been odd this whole generation- so enamored with first person shooters and gun games- what has always been a niche is now dominating them like a big dumb jock- and so hateful of all the "Otaku" gamers into Nintendo and Japanese anime based RPGs etc [calling important genre traditions like turn-based combat and spiky-haired-amnesiac-teen-sav es-the-world plots 'clich�'-]- I guess since the dumb jock masses got into gaming that G4 has to keep that demographic happy-

    Why is G4 homophobic? I can't say what type of person I am without it being censored.
