I really tried to give this the best shot I could since I love Metroid and Ninja Gaiden, however I can't stand it.
They should have done away with the cut-scenes since they're boring and stupid.
The only thing to look forward to is some Zero-Suit eye candy.
It tries to combine the Metroid and Ninja Gaiden games but it's not a good mix. Trading katanas for plasma shots was bad enough, but a clunky control system doesn't make things better. It was a neat idea, but the game is horribly executed. It's the worst game in the Metroid series.
Score: 5 out of 10
