Average User Score: 8.6Sep 22, 2010Game play was generic, but the story, environment and creativity was top notch. Certainly a better space epic than Halo or Gears despite theGame play was generic, but the story, environment and creativity was top notch. Certainly a better space epic than Halo or Gears despite the odd hybridization of gameplay/design elements from those two games. The story and the ability to really make the story your own and simulate the feeling of existing in this universe wins it a 9 alone. Few games this day can come out there with a good story and create a believable world. With enough lore to make you want to read the small texts documents, and do all the side quests.
Only downfalls I will mention is there were some serious bugs that shouldn't have made it into the final product, that and as mentioned the gameplay/combat could use some work to make it more original, as is it isn't bad but nothing superb.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.7Sep 22, 2010Game was terrible, an attempt to make Samus more "Human" failed, and came off as cliche. With enough "anime-ish" crap within the gamesGame was terrible, an attempt to make Samus more "Human" failed, and came off as cliche. With enough "anime-ish" crap within the games cutscenes and thus story it became one big facepalm of a game for me and anyone else who once took the series even remotely seriously. The gameplay itself was the equivalent of a spasm, with the controls handling awkward. Nothing about this game is positive.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.3Sep 15, 2010It honestly deserves less, but when pieces of garbage like the entire Halo franchise (ok the first one was original) get 9s this game deservesIt honestly deserves less, but when pieces of garbage like the entire Halo franchise (ok the first one was original) get 9s this game deserves at least an 8. The game has a solid single player experience, albeit brief and severely disjointed if you want it to be (I can literally do the missions in some messed up orders). Still a bold style for the RTS genre. The online is terrible thanks to Bnet 2.0 which even the biggest fans must concede is terrible, thinking Xboxlive-ish junk is an improvement over previous Battlenet is just sad. Support for the game itself is poor, still no free name changes nor the much needed patch 1.1 to nerf siege tanks (I'm top tier diamond so please be quiet). When players like IdrA who play this game say no self respecting player would play terran something is up. Although overall the races are pretty balanced at top tier of play. The game itself is the same core SC with more emphasis on hard counters and some radically changed combat mechanics to bring the game into the modern RTS era. Its not a bad game, and its certainly better than a lot of the crap on the market, but its sub-par for Blizzard which has done much better with their RTS titles in the past.… Expand
