    They did that on purpose to avoid too much backtracking

    so what back tracking has always been in metroid games it's what made it interesting. you come to a room and see a missile expansion over there but can't reach it and wonder how the fuck do you get that than you notice a weird rail running along the wall and think to yourself what the hell is that. later when you get the spider ball you realise OH i can go back and get that missile now so you do!

    We should have a poll on which is best, but only people who have completed all 3 recently should vote.

    MP2 for me, I just love that version so much with it's dark/light world puzzle aspects.

    i haven't fully finished mp2 but it's gotta be my least favorite. your losing energy all the time in dark ether is annoying, you have to guess a lot to what to do like when you scan something all it does is say structural analysis complete instead of saying this is made of this and this can destroy it. you run out of light and dark energy a lot and when you do if your in a bad spot your pretty much fucked. it's also very difficult to keep track of where missiles/energy etc is that you haven't collected yet. i dont like it as much as mp1 and 3 but i'm still playing it.

    I thought you like backtracking?

    Yeah MP2 is a bit hard sometimes, but not impossible (on veteran)
    Took me quite some time to beat it.
    (On higher difficulty I lost to the first boss twice [​IMG] )

    Light suit is very handy. You don't lose any lives in the dark (but still gain from the light things) and you can warp.

    i havn't got the light suit yet sounds cool though looking forward to getting that. it's not about the backtracking it's very difficult to keep track of where everything is sometimes almost overwhelming.

    If they slacked off, they managed to do a hell of a job in between breaks, as Corruption is easily the best, and most cinematic, of the trilogy by FAR.

    I can't wait for Other M.

    yes but they wasted half the game on movies and voice overs. gameplay took a huge hit compared to the 1st 2. as for other m not sure about that team ninja haven't really made any good games worth mentioning we'll just have to wait and see.

    Team Ninja made Ninja Gaiden Sigma and Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword, which were both excellent. I haven't played the other Ninja Gaiden games (I don't have a 360 yet), but from what I've played of theirs I certainly trust them to make a good Metroid game. Especially since they're not working on it alone, they are co-developing it with Nintendo.

    MP3s personally my favourite, although I hated the ending, too predictable.

    Not me, and here's why:

    1. Like I said before, they are co-developing it with Nintendo. There's no way that Project M would let it turn into a Ninja Gaiden clone.
    2. Team Ninja has also done Dead or Alive games, which don't play at all like Ninja Gaiden. I think this shows they're capable of doing things that aren't clones of stuff they've already done.
    3. From the trailer, it doesn't seem like a Ninja Gaiden clone.

    The trailer does not make it look very metroidy either, different view points, melee attacks, other people.

    They wouldn't show off exploration in the trailer. As necessary as it is to a Metroid game, it'd be damn boring to watch clips of in a trailer.
