  • Just so any preordering people know...
    Reviewed by timbo - July 10, 2021

    Just saw that there are reviews for this game that hasn't even come out yet, some already giving 5* and 1* here's the background to inform whether a preorder is worth it if you don't know about the franchise/game: Why people would preemptively give 5*: Metroid has not had a mainline entry for a very long time, and core fans of the franchise are happy with what has been shown about it, and want the game to be successful so Nintendo sees that people want these games and will see it worthwhile to make more Why people would preemptively give 1* Because they don't think a game can be 2D (or 2.5D) and still be worth a full price game. That's pretty much the gist of what I've seen from online discourse. Yeah, my "rating" might indicate my bias in the matter, but certainly do some research to come to your own conclusion as to whether this is worth the pre-order for you. As someone who has played a lot of the franchise though, I think there's a lot to be excited for based on what's known about it.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
