I’m really starting to dislike the Metroid series. The first Metroid
game I played was Super Metroid, but it seems after that, the next
2 GBA games released were not nearly as good. I still liked Fusion
and Zero Mission (although they were way too short…), but now
it seems the only type of Metroid games we will be getting are 3D…
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m sick of the Prime series. I’m
not saying they are bad games, but it’s looking like Nintendo is
moving further and further away from what the 2D series used to be.
I want another 2D game with a 20 hour campain mode! The last 2D
Metroid was made in 2004. It’s 2007 now and every single new Metroid
game announced so far is a Prime.
I’m really hoping after Prime 3, they continue with the 2D story line.
Does anyone else feel this way?
i enjoy the 3d games, though the 2d games seem to have more appeal to myself. while 4 hours isn’t really that much, the 4 hours you spend are certainly the most entertaining you can spend lots of the time.
The recent Castlevania games play almost exactly like 2D Metroids, and they usually last for 10-20 hours average for me, not counting the constant replaying and messing around. Even THEY feel a bit short at times, but at least they’re fairly fullfilling.
True. Since Nintendo hasn’t been releasing any Metroid games,
I have been buying Castlevania games to hold me back for a little longer.
Portrait of Ruin is awesome <3. I’m not saying I hate the Prime
games, but it’s just that the 2D series has always been better IMO.
I wouldn’t mind at all if Nintendo would start making both 2D and 3D games,
but right now, I doubt any new 2D Metroid is coming out…
I don’t think you’ll ever get your wishes. I think SM was a fluke. Let’s face it. Most people hate M2, and M1 isn’t very popular nowadays either. And everyone bitches about MF and ZM for various reasons. Why then does everyone say “the 2D metroids are so great”? SM’s the only one people overall say is so awesome, yet they act ike it’s a whole series like that.
No Fusion, ZM, Prime, Echoes, Hunters, and Corruption are all flukes and if you don’t know why just read the Prime credits-their is a “charming” message at the end-and not the rights warning-something else that saddens the heart. . . besides IF there is another 2D Metroid game it will likely be a Metroid 2 re-make.
The only truly great 2D game was Super Metroid, as one and two, may have been good for their time, but now…they suck. Fusion is great, as is Zero Mission, but not nearly as good as Super Metroid. The Primes are all good, except for Hunters, which is kind of weird. And Kesvalk, I can usually understand what you mean, but what’s a “chubby” story? And, didn’t she get her suit back at the end of Fusion? Mass confusion.
(P.S. What you all should be asking yourselves, is while your asking yourselves questions can you answer the questions to which you answered after you finished starting to question yourself?)
