    Renting the game I thought, was pretty short.

    I bought it.

    If you can beat a 15-20 hour (depending on how many scans/items you pick up) in one rental, then rent it.

    Sure, you can beat it on 100% or on a different difficulty but its all the same game.

    i suppose i just like owning games because the process goes:
    -buy
    -beat
    -forget about it
    -find it and decide to fire it up again
    -realize i forgot wtf is going on
    -have fun again

    I definetly second this, I had just not thought that the OP would agree, which is apparently wrong.

    Easily the best Wii game out there..Zelda was not really a Wii title built from the ground up.

    That's what I do with single-player games as well. That's why I like to buy my games; so I can just pick them up at any time and start playing. Hell, I will play games even when I haven't forgotten about them. I played Metroid Prime maybe 6-7 times because it was that good.

    This plan especially works when you build up a sizable library.

    Yea this game is really good!

    Like someone said if you feel like completing it in 15-20 hours and rush trough than you can rent it. If you like it than you can still buy it!

    I think that this game is a classic, and all classics (by law :lol:) should be owned.
    Seriously, it is a great game, so I would personally suggest purchasing it. :)

    Buy.

    I've spent a good hour trying to get a great juggling score in teh very beginning of the game. And I'm gonna go back again. I just have to get over 50... at 43 right now...

    Lots of fun, although after playing 10 hours straight, you'll be feeling very lonely (an effect metroid games tend to have)...

    I'm playing it in hypermode know, after having played veteran with 100 pickups (normal mode last! After hypermode, I don't even wanna think how easy it's gonna be!)

    Oh, and it's always fun to have a big game library, so it's always more fun to buy.

    Ttrust me, you won't be able to beat it in a rental, so you'll need to buy it.

    Simple. Buy.

    Not much more to say on top of what everyone else has said, but I just thought I'd give another vote for buying :thumbsup:

    I have both MH2 and Metroid, and like them both.

    Although, I think I'll get more replay value out of MH2, as there are very few games like it out, thus compelling me to play through it again (or certain chapters). Where as Metroid, when you get down to it, is just a FPS set in the Metroid universe. All the talk about puzzles and "First Person Adventure" IMO, aren't really true. If you want some good puzzles, Z&W is where it's at from what I've been told.

    I've played tons of FPS in my life, so maybe I'm judging MP3 a little harshly, but if you have the money, definitely buy both.
