    Remember when Nintendo had to send Retro some of their disaster control people? Looks like it worked.

    I want this game SO BAD!!!

    So I still want this game badly, but I think I still want the Sonic Mega Collection more...

    But a 9.8... I might have to figure a way to get MP into my budget this week...

    Should I save this purchase for my birthday (Nov 30) and pick up NightFire and Mortal Kombat or MK and MP?

    Maybe it's just me, but I still want the Sonic Mega Collection more than I want MP... But that 9.8 does make it REAL enticing...

    Chris-

    Well have you played any of the old Sonic games already? If so, then that's part of the experience that Sonic Mega Collection offers. Chances are you haven't played Metroid Prime yet.

    Morgan,
    Yeah, I know... But it's that old-school mentality about Sega and the Sonic series that makes me really want to get it...
    I dunno... This is turning out to be a harder decision that UC or GR for Xbox last week. LOL
    I will probably get MP first though, as I have some fond memories of Super Metroid for SNES and I'm a sucker for a hot chick in combat armor. [​IMG]

    I still don't know if I want this, and I cant think why as it certainly looks lovely. I am not big on FPS.... Hmmmm what to do, what to do....

    Fine this game is the stuff BUT is it 16:9? Can anyone who read the review tell us if IGN said if it was or not obviously it's progressive scan, and I'm sure it's that Dolby pro logic surround 5.1 part II or whatever they call it, but how about the aspect ratio??????

    Sadly, not 16:9, according to IGN review.

    On similar note, Planet GameCube just released their review of Metroid Fusion for GBA. It received a final score of 9.5. You can read the review here.
