    New Metroid Tidbits

    - First level - You are attacked on a spaceship while meeting with the ship’s captain…action packed

    - Play feels motion controls work better than dual joystick

    - Super sensitive pointer in “advanced” mode

    - Beam stacking ala Super Metroid

    - Visor switch: Hold minus and flick Wiimote in certain directions

    - Boss fight with Ridley at the end of the first level. Excellent difficulty curve by the time you reach the boss.

    - Back tracking in MP3:C makes more sense than in previous Primes

    - Extra development time was to give the game more polish. Nintendo wanted “Twilight Princess” levels of polish. Game is focused on Metroid fans and hardcore gamers, but still accessible to newcomers due to controls.

    - Second level - floating city focused on exploration

    - Larger environments, bloom lighting, better textures than Prime 2

    - Corruption Mode not available in demo

    - Play says it could be the biggest revolution in FPS gaming since Halo.

    Beam stacking sounds the biz, as does visor switching.

    I looking forward to the setting in space and the ship. i hear it will be a very technically advanced ship judging by the pictures. Looks like a great game. I'll be looking forward to it.

    I can't wait for this game! I'm as excited for this as most are for ssbb. I doubt it will be as big as Halo. Metroid has been around for a long time and most people know what to expect.

    Halo has also been around for a while but yes (Halo Combat Evolved : Nov. 2001), definitely not as long as Metroid has been out (Metroid : Aug. 1987). I think both series are great and I know since I own Halo 2 and Metroid 2.

    Me too I'm actually replaying Metroid Prime 2 at the moment, just beat Dark Samus for the first time. What an epic boss. What an epic game. What an epic series.
