So the verdict after reading several reviews: This is a great game, but the weird design choices might go well with you or not. So the game itself is not love it or hate, but many of the elements in the game are. But it still looks like a very fun game, just be prepared to face off against some unusual game design choices. Some pople hated first person, some people loved it. Some people loved the graphics, some listed it as the only bad thing about the game. Some people hate the cutscenes, some people loved them.

A great summary of the reviews so far. This is probably the most excited I've been for a Metroid game since...wow, maybe ever. I'm really loving the controversy.

well in this case I actually think most of the is justified. The G4 review seems to be blatently biased and over-reaching. I am personally loving the controversy of this game--the negative reviews have excited me just as much as the negative ones--but this G4 review is irritating. Especially because it's G4, a show known for their intense bias against nintendo

I'm not going to say it was a particularly great review, but I'm not sure I'd call bias. Point being, it wouldn't matter how well composed it was to the fanboys. They just see an attack on their beloved Nintendo.

Again, you're generalizing.

Am I? You realize which group I'm talking about here, right? Have you seen some of the comments appearing on the sites around the web?

That G4 review was so bias. They spend half the time judging on Samus' character and why she's so obsessed in Adam.

I also stopped listening to G4 reviews after they said Super Mario Sunshine and Luigi's Mansion were awful games.

They did? I think they just became my favorite reviewers, then.

My word, stop with the flame war here. The site is called NintendoLife. My guess is there're going to be people who like Nintendo games here. So please, stop with the flaming. Go somewhere else, there's plenty of internet to go around.

Flame war? Nah. Nobody has had their intelligence, sexuality, or promiscuity of their mother called into question.

Dissenting opinions? Sure. Makes for good times.

All right, I can see where you're coming from. And (attention internet, I am admitting a mistake) I was wrong to jump out and call flaming. But could you please just lay off of the Nintendo hate a bit? Just a little, I mean, you belong to a site called NintendoLife. Thanks.

Chill, Blink -- this isn't a flame war so much as it's been a discussion, and it's gotten a bit heated at times, but nothing too serious (yet). I've had my eye on it for a while now, don't worry. :3

Also, yes, this is Nintendo Life, but we can discuss things other than Nintendo here, and not everyone who likes Nintendo is going to like everything Nintendo comes up with. This is of those times. Again, it's cool, and I'm already on it, so relax, please. :3

All right, all right, going to take a cold shower now. :)

Sorry, I overreacted, I guess I have a little Nintendo "fanboy" in me. But can we at least refrain from using the "f"-word? (fanboy) That's generalization, and really does not add to the discussion...

Oh, and sorry for not having an open mind Fox, just, I dunno, I was confused. :P

Personally, I'm more excited about finally getting my Metroid Prime Trilogy than this, I guess I never really got into the hype it generated. I mean, I was excited about there being a new Metroid game, but that's pretty much it. Still want to try it out eventually, but it can wait.

I doubt there will be a pause feature, but I'm pretty sure you can skip the cutscenes after the first playthrough.

Oh, and totally off-topic, but lucky post! XD

I cancled my preorder today and I am going to lend this game some day. Around ten hours (what I have heard) are just too short, even more compared to the Prime games.
