It's not a great Metroid game, but it is well worth $5.

Very tempting, the local Best Buys have piles of these and will price match their online price. The 3rd person view has held me off, looking thru reviews .......

EDIT
No Classic Control for a 3rd person platformer! Well this is disappointing.

EDIT 2
Ah well the price too tempting, picked up a copy. THANKS []idsheinem[/i] for the heads up! :mrgreen:

If my bank account wasn't empty i'd probably at least be strongly considering jumping on this. I can't imagine the game not being worth at least $5.

The question isn't whether I'll get it, it's how many copies I'll buy.

This game kicked ass and Samus looked wicked hot in it.

Oh, and maybe it's just the Best Buys near me, but every time I go in there are seriously about 30 copies of this game on the shelves. It's ridiculous.

I paid full price for this game, and I thought it was worth it. Is the game perfect like Super Metroid and Metroid Prime? No. Is it nonetheless awesome? Yes. It is definitely, definitely worth $5.
