Only problem is without the Metroid aspect then all you have is a cliche space-trooper game. Eh.
That's just not true, if its a good game it'll be loved on its own merit, not the fact that its based on metroid, I don't think ppl would consider it cliche.
Look at cave story - its got such a unique feel and atmosphere, and the ILLUSION of unique gameplay; but [deep down] - it really is just metroid with a different skin, and dialogue added. Yet cave story became one of the most loved indie games ever made.
Well.. My comment wasn't so much a 'complaint' as a "what if" really. The game is definitely good, I just wish it wasn't restricted by metroid's shadow is all.
but hey, in the end, a good game is a good game lol.
