I have to agree about the plots of some of these games. I think if they were to push the envelope and made games with story I think they would be able to get the hardcore gamers that are on the fense right now.

Yeah, that is a bummer. A lot of the reviews seem to say the same thing...more story, etc. I was hoping for more because it had some of that classic side-scrolling in it. Oh well, I need to save up and find where they are still selling the Metroid Trilogy at.

Not all reviews were totally bad though. IGN said this, I guess it depends on what you are looking for:
A huge step forward for Nintendo, a company that's been reluctant to push story over gameplay...An excellent experience with great, intense action and an engaging story that turns one of Nintendo's beloved characters into something more than a kick-ass bounty hunter.

Now I know that most you Metroid fans were expecting a great game but unfortuantty that is not what this game delivers. For all of us that have played the series we all have come to know Samus as a butt kicking female that acts now and asks questions later. One of the best female bounty hunters is being reduced to a love struck diva glancing back to her childhood and love interest. She also spends more time out of her suit to shows off her curves which is something that Nintendo has not really shown off and gives people a bad feeling. The game play is said to be horrible with the switch between first person shooter and side scroller. The first person aspect involves not standing still to shoot. XPlay gave this a 2 out of 5.
