    Most people say that because Master Cheif and Samus have similar suits on. But when you narrow it down, they are completely different (plot, setting ext.). So, I'd say they're 50% similar.

    EDIT: The title should be switched around since Metroid came before Halo.

    Okay....i think we pretty much cleared this on another thread....but oh well.......in my view, "im not sure if this is what anyone else thinks" Metroid Prime is mostly an Action-Adventure game......Halo on the other hand is basically a First Person Shooter game....can be compared to goldeneye....only that Halo in this day and age is better!!!

    There is no way in hell, a person can compare Halo to Metriod Prime......they are both different genres.....like i said before.....Halo is all about the Shooting....Prime is majority of time finding things to unlock different places...dam i hate that....especially on Prime 2....that game had me searching everywhere!!!

    I hope you get what im saying......?

    metroid was before halo WAYYYYYYYY before about 15 years before possibly more than that. anyways, halo is a fps only all it is, is shooting with some other small things mixed in. early metroid games are similar to castlevania games. you are dropped in a world where you can explore. metroid prime was metroid turned to 3 d with a first person view. i dont think metroid prime is a fps it is more of a first person adventure similar to oblivion for the 360. metroid prime is not made for combat, although its in there, its more about exploring.

    Single player is totally different. If Metroid had online then maybe that part would be similar but it doesn't, maybe next year...

    it should really be more like
    "Is Halo Microsofts version of Metroid?"

    But anyways like people said, Halo=FPS, Metroid=Action/Adventure so yeah there different but they have kinda the same point. (As in killing aliens)

    Lets not give him a hard time now.
    The big thing is though, that Metroid was out before Halo.
    But really they are not too similar.

    Wrong question.
    "Is Halo like Microsoft's version of Metroid? would be the correct saying", because Metroid came first.

    Yes. Metroid Prime is the anti-Halo, and that's pretty much what Nintendo had in mind as an answer to Halo*. It's actually not a bad pair to compare and contrast, and the information you get from that turns out to define what the two companies are after.

    *Metroid Prime and Halo are contemporaries, even though the Metroid frachise predates Halo by far. Halo has also been more successful at creating a gap that needs filled than Nintendo, though the way N went about it ("FPA") was unconventional and gutsy, there won't be competition on the sales figures.

    Yup, It's Like Nintendo's Halo. Metroid Offers Great Graphics and an Expanded Story in Which Metroid Truly Shows OFF it's Nintendo Colors.

    let me do some date checks
    AHHH Yes.
    technically, metroid did come before halo
    BUT
    metroid didnt because a First-Person game until Metroid Prime, which came out AFTER halo. so his thread title is just fine. the gamecube had poor sells compared to the xbox and ps2. it is easy to assume that in response to killer-app halo, nintendo looked back at their franchises to see if any could become a first person shooter to tackle halo, thus metroid became one.

    actually metroid prime was in delvelopment during the time halo was. halo was released at the launch and prime was release about a year later. it took more than a year to make prime so they were made on over lapping times. so, metroid is not nintendo's answer to halo, it was an original idea not just a copy cat of halo.

    Exactly right. They didn't throw Prime together in under a year.
