lack of online, or any multiplayer, whatsoever is really going to have a detrimental effect on sales of this game. this game could have been absolutely huge for the wii, and i still think that, to a certain extent, it will be a big release.Originally Posted by TitansATB
but i think that the reason we're not seeing a huge marketing campaign with this game is because nintendo knows that they kinda dropped the ball on multiplayer for metroid.
for a system that is all about multiplayer and playing together, this kind of creates an antithesis, and leads the way backward from where the wii is going.
should still be a solid game though. i'm gonna see how much bioshock pulls me into it for the first week, before i go out and buy metroid too.
the biggest thing with this game though, besides being a solid and polished game though, is the controls. that would be my number 1 reason for picking this up. most wii fans have been dying to get their hands on a fps that actually plays smooth b/c of the wiimote, not jerkier and more akward than most dual analog controlled games.
