Visually the game is gorgeous. Great texture work, particles, fluid framrate, animation, Just all around pretty game. As for the story? It gets alot of flack but imo it actually turned samus into a character, something no other title has done before it. It actually had a story placed at the forefront of the title. The gameplay is good, but there are parts that will have you scratching your head and asking wtf? Such as a few scenes in the first person mode where you have no clues to find a small hidden totally insiginificant object before you can move on. Those scenes are awful. Great game tho and at the price now its easily worth it. I say go for it
Games are fun.
