    I'm one of of those that thinks Halo is way over rated, yeah i had Halo 1 & 2 and beat them both and they were really great shooters, but to me, no better than other FPS shooters out there.
    I admit Halo set the foundation for all others but , when ya' think about it, the multiplayer is what everyone really loved and now those are a dime a dozen.
    As for the single player campaign it was really good but not this in depth phenomenal master piece everyone hails it to be.
    I thought Metroid Prime 1 & 2 were much deeper, involved and challenging games, both the single campaigns were longer then the Halo's and much more vast with lot's more areas to explore and items to collect, thats how i judge the quality of a good shooter by the single player campaign to see if it has the depth, challenge and vastness of the world surrounding you.
    So while, unfortunately the majority of game fans are reserving their Halo 3's
    i'll be reserving my Metroid 3.
    What about you guy's ?

    Metroid wasnt bad. Halo is quite a bit better though. Halo online has been ruined. Halo 2 online is now whoever has downloaded the newest version of aimbot wins.

    Well, the campain in metroid beats halo hands down. But the thing that makes Halo better is the amazingly fun multiplayer.

    Metroid beats Halo's campaign by a fair bit, but Halo's multiplayer completely crushes Metroid. The sheer variety of game modes you can make and play makes it so great. Not only can you play the usual games, like CTF, Bomb, DM, TDM, etc, but you can also make other fun things like Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Dodge Ball, Hostage, Counterstrike, etc.

    Metroid Got Owned By Halo A Loooong Time Ago... Halo: Combat Evolved Is A Platinum Hit.

    Metroid, As Soon As Corruption Comes Out, Samus'll Be 20 Years Old! ^_^

    But Only Three Games, Aside From Corruption, Have Been FPS's...
    Metroid Prime
    Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
    And Metroid Prime: Hunters.

    And Only One Of Those has Been Online. Hunters. And That Was Nowhere Near As Huge As Halo Online.

    And Halo 3 Is Gonna Be Epic. Epic To The Fullest Extent.

    So, In My Eyes, Halo Crushes Metroid.

    Halo obviously. As someone who has played tons of FPS I can say that metroid makes a better side scroller, and I kind of wish they kept it that way. Its not bad, but Halo is pretty damn good. Then again some will like whatever nintendo produces, thats because they cant think for themselves.

    Well that is not entirely true. Not everyone likes whatever nintendo makes, just don't use most of the people here on wiichat as an example. Many of them don't know nothing about anything. I am not trying to start stuff here, all I am saying is im not one of those people who like everything nintendo makes.

    I've never played metroid 1 or 2, I want to try 3 really bad.
    I've only played the halo games, so I guess I can't make a good choice considering I haven't played metroid, but right now I would say halo is better.

    haha seriously, Halo set the course of online fps multiplayer on consoles. If you people keep trying to compare metriod to halo you are going to fail. Dont even try to do it. Its not worth it. You can like Metroid, but once you start attacking the top online fps franchise, you are going to ruin it.

    I was generalizing a bit I admit. You are right on that, but even though I am here, I cant help but notice some really dumb stuff being said. Perhaps I should go somewhere else, but for some reason I like it here.

    The first metroids was perhaps the most amazing side scroller in nintendo history, even better than mario. Mario is a classic, but metroid really defined the side scroller in nintendo's history. The next version of metroid, going 3D really took a step back in my opinion. It felt, very linear to me and dry. Thats what happens when they cannot convert a 2D game to a 3D game faithfully. In that case, the franchise is dead and a new version is out seperate from what made it good to begin with.

    Dude you are clueless

    Both Xbox and Gamecube came out within' days of each other in november of 2001, and even though Halo was a launch title, Metroid Prime was already in development for almost a year and half when the nintendo team first received the development kits in the beginning of 2000.
    Infact i have the Game informer magazine with Metroid Prime Preview shots to prove it, and the mag is prior to xbox and gamecubes release
    So how the hell is Halo responsible for Metroid Prime being the way it is when the game itself was nearing the end of development and getting ready for release.
    Sovieto get your facts straight before you post replies dude, you make yourself sound like a novice.

    I would have to say that Halo beats Metroid by a long shot due to its online play
    and campaign...but thats just my opinion. Different people like different games..

    If by "crushed" you mean "sold way fewer copies" then I would agree...

    Personally, I'm not a huge Halo fan, but after playing Metroid Prime I won't be playing the second or the third.

    Halo's Quick Devolpment over Metroid Prime

    Metroid Prime is a good game but one thing to take into consideration is that Metroid Prime has been out many more years then Halo and Halo overall is much more enjoyable. Online Play, Audio Communication, and just cool. My first System other then the SNES was the XBOX, and I was going to get a XBOX 360 but I decided that the Wii better suited my needs. Anyways, with the release of Halo 3, Halo is probley the better series but if Metroid Prime came out with a game that had all the feature of Halo, like chat and online play, it could end up being better then Halo. Though this would probley not be done. At this time Wii has no feature like audio or video chat or online play. This would more then likely require a lot of work to develop a system that would run off the Wii and allow such a feature. Also with Microsoft being a computer company thay have access to stuff that Nintendo doesn't. Miscosoft preety much owns the computer industey. So HAlo will probley always be ther better series but in the eyes on true Nintendo fans it isn't and as the war between consoles contiunes it depends on what you want. Also please note I am not sure if Halo 2 has Audio Communication. I'm preety sure it does and if it doesn't then Halo 3 will plus who knows what may be revealed. With Microsoft in control of our computers we can't be quite sure what could be next.
