Wired really thinks so:
But for all its technical merit, Hunters has turned a unique and compelling series into something generic and boring. When Metroid fans got worried five years ago that the series was going first-person, this is exactly what they were afraid of.-- Metroid: Almost a Great Notion
Anyone else out there agree? I haven't played much of the Metroid series, to be honest, so I'm probably not the best to judge. I've played through some of Zero Mission and now Hunters and toyed around with the original Prime on other's Gamecubes. I've been perfectly happy with the single player on Hunters and it does tend to remind me of Zero Mission, so I never really thought anything about it. Is Wired being uberharsh here or are they simply more on point?
