Let me start by saying, I really enjoy the Metroid Series, both 2D and 3D, have played them all except pinball. Like most, i was very excited to get my hands on this, but I'm late to starting because of backlogs of games. none the less, 1st 30 minutes in, it felt great. by the 2nd hour, it felt very off, dull and a chore to play.
The main thing I'm not enjoying is the need to constantly counter every enemy, and the free aim got old very quick.
I've had a few friends hype to me that this was the best metroid ever, but i can't see how this is even in the runnings with Zero mission, Super metroid or Fusion.
I'm at the point i just want to watch a youtube play through video.
