It was a good game that I enjoyed while I played it, but it did not compare to the fantastic Super Metroid, Metroid Prime, and Corruption. I gave it 3/5 stars (liked it) and I still stand by that score.
Still, biggest gripes were:
Those are my biggest complaints as well. Though I'd give it 9/10 or so. It was very disturbing with those "frozen solid-moments" where you had to find some certain pixels. They weren't fun and just slowed things down. I would have liked a more epic ending than the one the game actually got with the "aim at MB"-scene. And yes, that ice beam scene was downright horrendous. Worst scene of the game - and it was kinda weird since before that scene I was so excited 'cause the game really built up a lot of tention before it. So, I was very disappointed having Samus look as weak as she did in that scene.
But still, I really loved the gameplay and plot twists were great. The finishing moves looked sweet and most boss fights were really good as well. I would have loved a Kraid or Mother Brain fight though. Still thinks that Metroid Prime beats this game, but not by all that much.
Would also have preferred nunchuk support and getting rid of the free aim. You could just point at the screen instead and shoot like in Prime but in third person. The shifting from 3rd to 1st would've been easier too. Simply click... say, "Z" to enter first person. And finally - a longer game. 7-10 hours is just too short. At least 5 hours more should've been added.
Nice to see that there's a lot of positive comments about the game here now. I was so surprised that I had to create an account just to write here! ^^
