    You're missing the point. The critical hatred of this game is twofold. First, it's just not a very good game. Second, they've completely changed the character in between two well-known games (Super Metroid and Metroid Fusion) and completely changed her from a badass super-soldier who cows to no one and made her into a sniveling, weak character who tows the line of a typical 1950's housewife. It is not only a blatant example of the misogyny that proliferates in the arena of videogames, but it a disingenuous representation of a well-known character. I would be as if Bungie released a Halo game in between Halo 2 and Halo 3 in which Master Chief had segments called: Dear Diary and cried about how much he just wanted to be loved. It is likewise similar to making Han not shoot first--it is stripping away part of the essence of a character already known. It isn't developing them, it is killing them.

    Hell, I caught one comment bashing her from a guy that never played any Metroid game
    If you never played the game nor any of the franchise, shut the f*ck up

    Ack, whoops. Left out a "not" there. Han shoots first, any other way is blasphemy or a grammar mistake.

    Adam won't authorize it.

    Seriously, that is the worst reasoning for Samus's lack of powers in this series yet (and there were some pretty ****ty explanations before).

    I literally went all the way through a lava world, taking heat damage, only to get the Varia suit when Adam realizes it might help during the boss fight. W. T. F.

    Team Ninja go back making another amazing Ninja Gaiden game because you're great at it at least (NG2 is still my fav action game).

    Or not. Now that Itagaki is gone, we'll get Sigma-quality crap.

    Oh waaa. With Itagaki gone, maybe the focus won't be on womens breasts for a change. And how exactly were the Sigma games bad? The first Sigma was considered to be the definitive version. Part 2 did get a little censorship, but didn't all that blood create a bunch of slowdown? I say it's for the better.

    That's another person who focus on boobs (Hayashi or whatever, the one who did the Sigma stuff). And no, Sigma 2 was worse than the original NG2. Fog-like crappy effect instead of gore, terrible gameplay changes and worthless new characters. It was ruined.

    Practically Sigma 2's only new feature was boob physics D:

    I knew it was gonna suck as well, I mean just look at the name...my god...

    They could as well handle the game developement to a certain guy I know and I bet he would make a great game compared to this, even though he is kinda out of the business.

    I'll say this much. Whoever does the next Metroid title has some work cut out for them. I would just say that it might as well pay to revert Samus back to the silent, non-twatified character she was supposed to be...but those cutscenes aren't gonna wash out of my memory any time soon.
