Metroid Prime was easily my favorite Gamecube game and one of my favorite games of all time. The second game was pretty good too, although it was too similar to the first game. I was really looking forward to the Wii Metroid game, but it didn't really rock my world and I admit that I gave up on it after awhile.
I will give Retro Studios the benefit of the doubt and hope that their next Metroid game scales back the difficulty just a tad.

Santino continued his tradition of coming down to the ring, being ten times funnier and more interesting than the other guy, and then getting his ass beat. He said to Rey Rey "anyone who a wears a mask eesa either incredibly ugly, incredibly stupid or...eesa the batman!" Man, if this guy could only wrestle he'd be King Korn Karn by now. Homeslice doesn't even have a finisher. -- Matt Fowler
I played the demo and apart from when it crashed on me, I thought it was neat. The demo doesn't really show how your actions affect the future, though - did you play through it more than once to see what happens?
