    Not worth it if you have Metroid Zero Mission.

    Is it really necessary to produce this when it's on MZM? Just doing whatever it takes to get money huh Nintendo?

    Yep, I agree. Also I think that having Metroid as a bonus with MZM was something they should have continued. I don't think these warrant their own games, certainly not at the prices they are being sold at. Nintendo should have started including them with all of their first party releases so that Mario vs DK might have had NES Donkey Kong as a bonus and so on.

    Mario vs. Donkey Kong was a 128mb rom, no room for bonus stuff. Metroid: Zero Mission was obviously under 64mb to fit it, and even if it had been 64mb it could have been extended with room to spare. But 128mb is the limit.

    At the very least, it would be nice if they'd release three or four of these to a single cart. But you know, it's not like anybody is forcing anyone to buy them, so if you think they suck just don't spend your money on them.

    Not true at all. The max game size that the GBA is capable of supporting is 256mbit. To date no game that I'm aware of has ever used that size, but that is the correct max size, not 128mbit.

    Since when could the gba run a 256mb rom? I thought it was a technical limitation that it wouldn't run a rom larger than that (save the gba movies, of course, which don't run the same way)

    Also, some people may want to own Metroid on a cart by itself. People who don't want to buy Zero Mission.

    It doesn't matter. Once again if you don't like the product, don't buy it. You can't accuse Nintendo of being greedy when it's a standalone game that nobody is forcing you to buy.
