    Why does it look like Samus is tapdansing during the training? Is the player doing something wrong or is that how she walks slowly in this one?

    Abbie Heppe cant review, she's calls the game "sexist". She in fact a Metroid hater anyways.

    It seems as though they let the gameplay take a back seat to the injection of character and culture into the world of metroid. First of all, the gameplay is why everyone loves the series in the first place, so putting it in the back seat is retarded. Second, I can't speak for Japanese culture but certainly injecting too much of any culture into any game will limit its appeal DRASTICALLY. As someone said before, we in the west like big bad-ass action heroes and up until now Samus has been one bad-ass female. One reason we like this in the west is that she has not been sexualized in any one of the series games, so, to place her within the Japanese culture's idea of a submissive gender role consequently kills her as a like-able character for us. Honestly, from the first video reveals and screenshots for this game, the 3D anime style turned me off but if everything else had fallen into place this game could have still won my heart. As it stands I will probably just dismiss this as an experimental side story and therefor non-cannon entry into the series along with the likes of Metroid Pinball.

    Problem I've found with bad comments (x-play and otherwise) about this game

    1: Her voice is epic she sounds like a ninja in solitude what do you want her to sound like? Sue from glee? seriously.

    2: the only sexism I see is the guys talking to her she isn't a bad model herself.

    3: Do you seriously think the controls are extremely flawed and that this guy is good at these first 15 things didn't you see him jump around for 2 minutes when the game said press A to turn into a morph ball and when he spent forever looking for the clues in first person?

    4: How many times have you seen her ass in previous games Morgan it's not new.

    5: She said young and naive because it was a decision she regretted and she insults herself for it and even I do that... alot (in fact I might regret posting this comment and get 20 down votes but it's my opinion).

    This game has no real flaws from what I see except for the horrible auto aim. If I wasn't gonna spend all my money on reach I'd get this.

    i like the fact that they don't feel compelled to make her super macho and strong. Virtually every action game has some super macho, super strong, main character and it got old 10 years ago. Having a main character that expresses some frailness is refreshing.

    Wow, I think this game is great. Realize that this is a completely different Meteroid, this isn't Halo, or GTA. I love her voice. If you don't like it, take it back or don't buy it. No one forces you to buy a game. I think most of you are too picky on what you want from a game, drop the overly high expectation level(let's get real, there's not a game out there that's gonna meet your overly rediculous standards),and let go, just enjoy the game.

    But without a large bust, shiny butt, and high heels built into her blue suit, HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO KNOW SHE'S A GIRL?!

    So... when does the gameplay start? I mean sure there was a tutorial and that extremely short run towards the next cutscene but that hardly counts as gameplay. I got to wait until tomorrow on the 2nd to see for myself(stupid later PAL release) but I would really like to be able to play properly before 20 minutes has elapsed. I was frustrated with MGS4's lengthy opening cutscene and I seriously fell asleep the first time I saw the cutscene and had to reset the game to see it with a cup of coffee.

    I also want Retro to make another FPS Platformer Metroid game because I really like how that game worked and if not a FPSP how about what they are doing with Donkey Kong Country Returns.

    The voice work isn't as bad as I've heard, though the story does seem to be going for that heavy melodramatic feel. Don't think that really works that well in Metroid. At least not THAT heavy.

    i played the game right when i got home... and so far i am not dissappointed.. i like that i have to look for the sectrets to level up on missiles.. i was like i cant go on till i figure it out.. and i didn... the controls to first person does get use to getting use to .. but hey when its a new control thing.. its always takes time to get use to.. for example.. fifa.. MW series.. i'm sayin those to cuz if you not use to the controls it takes time.. but i picked it up fast.. as far as the 2D moving and combat.. i love it.. to be honest it reminds me of CONTRA.... overall i am not dissapointed.. and if you are butt hurt cuz you cant use your weapons when you want.. if you pay attention to the stroy it makes sence.. like in COD.. in some missions you cant use certain weapons.. OOOOHHHH bit samus cant and she gets dumped on.. come on and enjoy a great game..

    i thought the voice acting was fine, sounded like she was detached, thinking of something else, such as the baby thingy that saved her life and that her narration to us did not have her full attention. if its like that through the entire game though, i would definately get annoyed...

    the graphics look amazing for a wii game...

    it doesn't look bad graphically but the whole Wii mote too the side thing wont sit too well for me. And the voice uggh... i always pictured Samus having a bad-ass voice like Angelina Jolie or Eliza Dushku.

    The room scan was laughably redundant. Why would she have to carefully scan the room to notice the seal on the side of a ship? What's more, that voice actress should be slapped.

    I'm sure it gets better, but the opening seems to be pretty awful.
