    Hello fellow buzzers!

    Metroid Prime: Federation Force is an upcoming spin-off of the the Metroid series. The game follows a new recruit of the Galactic Federation where you will embark on planetary missions. Thought to be ridden, there seems to be Space Pirate disturbances across the Bermuda system. What are they up to this time?

    Come back Friday 26th August 2016 to ask any burning questions you have about the game based on what I have played in the review version. If your question gets featured at the end, you will receive 30 Melons and a commemorative trophy!

    Quite simply, is it worth my time and money? From what I've seen, it's apparently nothing at all like a real Metroid game, which of course, is what we want. I understand that it's a spinoff, but it should at least be reminiscent of a Metroid game.

    This is something which is the purpose of the review, but I can say that if given a chance, it's actually quite a fun game, especially with others. Also, there are quite a few nods back to the Metroid series, there may not be that much theming on isolation, but, when playing it, it does feel fairly Metroid-y

    There are 22 main missions, each one has two optional objectives, and there is also a hard mode which can be unlocked

    Unfortunately there is no download play for the main game, but there is for blast ball

    I have a few questions:

    1. can you play alone?
    2. will it be like Tri Force Heroes where you have to have a full team to play with others?
    3. is there voice chat?

    1. yes, while alone, you can equip up to three combat drones to help you fight. You can also use a special MOD that should halve the damage you receive and double the damage you give
    2. Nope, you can have one player, two player, three player, or four player games, no need to wait for a full team
    3. Unfortunately not

    Are the L and R buttons necessary to play the game?

    If so, what do they do?

    With Control Scheme A (Single Circle Pad), L and R are required. R locks onto a target, and L allows you to use the gyroscope to move your reticle.

    It isn't required with Scheme B (Circle Pad Pr/C Stick) and L is used to jump and R is to shoot, both of which can be used with B and A respectively. It is much easier using the shoulder buttons though.
