oh, well if you average it out its 8.75, not really the upper 9's. not that scores matter really. looks so far that people are liking it less then just about every metroid before it though. i really hope this lives up to my expectations

I think it is really UNimportant what score the game got. 10's and 9's are not the things i'm waiting for, i'm waiting for a game that happens to be a part of my favourite series. A score is an abstraction, not a reality. Do not get confused that it is the other way around people...

Pathetic 'games' like Call of Duty get 9's, and if it scores lower than these 'games' by the same reviewers...you shouldn't take that serious by the way...even then...

the scores themselves mean nothing to me. what has me worried is how well they scored past metroid titles compared to this. that means they understand the quality of metroid, at least to a certain extent. i will reserve judgement until i beat the game, but my expectations are dropping rapidly. they are very high expectations though.

This is important: http://gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2010/08/24/game-inform...

A Game Informer review scan depicting a review score of an 8/10 has been passed around a lot today--but it's the Australian review, apparently. They said that their score is "quite different" than the Australian score.
Remember, though, guys--it's really not the score that counts. It's the review itself. I think all of us knew this game would be polarizing, seeing as it's doing some pretty different things with the series. Scores are often dubious, as I've found. I'm really interested in seeing what exactly people have to say about this game.

I said it when the game was first announced and I'm saying it again--Other M is an anagram for Mother (Mother Brain anyone?). If it's not I'll bake a virtual pie for everyone here.
Note: Kid_A is being sarcastic and in no way owes anyone any sort of virtual food item. Scientists and pieologists have yet to crack the code on baking the perfect virtual pie

Yeah, i know what you mean though (scores low for a Metroid title). The thing is, i'm not expecting anything because i know that this game will be great, as it goes back to the roots. I liked the first two Prime games very much, but i was always 'secretly' hoping on a title in the classical style for the Wii...and it is gonna be delivered very soon, never even thought that would happen in fact.

To add...some titles in the series got scores they didn't deserve in my opinion (Metroid Prime 3 and Hunters), others didn't get what they truly deserved in my opinion (Metroid 2 and Zero Mission).

i just want this to be as good as fusion. if the combat works and the level design is great i will likely love this game. please god, let it be good lol. we dont get many main series metroids, and we havent had any from r and d 1 in 3d until now. this game has so much potential, thats why it will suck if it doesnt reach it.

Retro's ones are the best Metroid games to date. Too advanced games for Sakamoto to asimilate/understand. So now it is that he has a very "realistic vision of Samus" compared with Prime versions, right? Of course before Prime series Samus was a quite deep character inside a quite deep story from where many books have been writen ...

congrats you were right the game is getting mostly 8s right now. I kinda saw this coming the why I cancelled my pre order. I plan on getting trilogy first than getting this game at 40$. (its a bit presumptious of me to call it this early).

@lilboyblue: I don't know what planet you live in where an eight makes someone right on a game not being good. A six and lower, though, now those are pretty low scores. Also, I guess you missed the hype part of the title, please keep any negative comments to yourself until you actually play it (and when/if you do, make them constructive and make your own points, don't let other people speak for you)...

Jep. Totally agree. :D

I would also like to add that it is ridiculous to compare the Prime games to the traditional ones; they're of the same series BUT in different styles, and styles aren't superior or inferior to another. Many people argue that Metroid Prime 'really captured the great atmosphere of Super Metroid like proportions'. But if you turn it around, you could just as easily say that Super Metroid really has a 'Metroid Prime feel to it, transited in 2D form'. It's all Metroid, and it's feeling, in the end...

i saw a bunch of 9's and didn't know to add them up... facepalm. at any rate, that's still higher than the score they gave metroid prime.

there have been about 3 scores so far (without a single review) and 8 is the lowest of them. that's not exactly the massive failure mandoble has been conjuring up. for what it's worth, i often see super metroid with an 8 and like i mentioned above, prime got an 8 from famitsu.

often reviewers have odd reasons for deducting points from games that really are nearly perfect, like in the case of twilight princess getting some 8's for playing it too safe even though taken on it's own merits it's an amazing game. we don't know why they're awarding 8's without the reviews, so it could very well be for stupid, stupid reasons. i'd like to see other m getting consistent 10's like galaxy 2 did, but the early impressions made it clear that this game is going to be all over the place.

Famitsu gave this higher score than Metroid Prime? Gotta remember that Prime averages 97 in metacritic, and Metroid has never been that popular in Japan. I'll wait for other reviews.

you may as well ask people to keep the positive comments to themselves as well until they actually play it. hype can be both negative and positive. also note that this is a 'hype/discussion' thread. he is discussing why he canceled his preorder.
are you people seriously arguing over the score before it's even been released? wtf

also, good luck finding the game at or below $40 within the first year, though, lilboyblue :3

i was trying to make a point of why we shouldn't start arguing over it since there are only a couple scores and no reviews, but since it's the internet it'll probably turn into an argument anyway. right now, i'm arguing with you about whether it's an argument. and i'm this close to calling the mods on you....

you watch your a**.

I haven't seen any score yet, what am I missing? So people who can't think out of the box and embrace differences rate it lower - big surprise boohoo...

Is there any place online which shows many known review channels and their scores?

i think gamerankings.com is a good bet. usually sites like gonintendo have new reviews linked immediately, which is why i need to stop checking it. i'd rather tune out of all the news and not hear anything more until i get the game.
