Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
I had fun, but it could have been so much better. The writing was generally terrible, and they got the tone all wrong. I like that they tried to add more story, but they needed to hire some real sci-fi talent to put it together. Samus needed to be less subservient and melodramatic. The previous Metrioids all made her pretty icy, confident, and efficient. In this game, I swear she was like Sailor Moon or something; it was pretty bad. The control scheme was a terrible idea. They made it work for the most part, but still, it was a terrible idea. Hard to get into, but after a couple hours I was hooked until the end. Ridley was amazing, best boss encounter I've played in a long time.
