REVIEW – Metroid: Samus Returns

It’s been a while since we have been graced with a proper Metroid adventure. Sure there was Federation Force, and though I thought it was an okay game, many would argue that it doesn’t exist to them, but that’s neither here nor there. No, this is about Samus’ reimagined mission to SR388 in an attempt to rid the universe of Metroids.

Could Metroid: Samus Returns take on a fight against Samus Aran, or does it have less life than a victim of a Metroid feeding? Find out in our review after the break!

Opinion: Samus is back, but are the fans?

For the first time in thirteen years, Nintendo will be releasing a traditional 2D Metroid title. At the time of writing, we are just two weeks away from Metroid: Samus Returns arriving in North America and Europe. The initial response from the press has been fantastic and it looks like it will be the game that fans of the traditional Metroid games have dreamed of. Nintendo appear to have listened to the Metroid fan community with their criticism of Metroid: Other M and Metroid Prime: Federation Force over the years. Samus is back! Metroid seems to have returned to its roots. So why are some fans so angry and upset? (more…)

One outlet that has grabbed the attention of Nintendo fans in particular is GameSpot, as they have a three brief segments in their E3 schedule between Tuesday and Thursday which are dedicated to a specific Nintendo game.

it is currently unclear whether these games have already been announced, or if they are games which will be revealed during Nintendo’s Spotlight event. Either way, it’s worth checking out.

The first segment is on Tuesday at 11am PT, then on Wednesday at 1pm PT, and finally on Thursday at 11am PT again.

REVIEW – Metroid Prime: Federation Force

Metroid Prime: Federation Force follows the exploits of a rookie Marine from the Galactic Federation’s Federation Force programme. Initially carrying out research of indigenous creatures, exterminating threats, and collecting data within Bermuda System, soon turns into an intergalactic mission that stakes the very existence of the Federation, and quite possibly life as we know it. This entry in the Metroid series is a first-person, co-operative shooter, which places you, and up to three other friends, in the Federation Force garb.

Though the game has received plenty of backlash in its pre-release, could Metroid Prime: Federation Force actually be an intergalactic adventure to remember, or will it be consumed by the black hole of mediocrity? Find out in our in-depth review… after the break!
