    I just got this game yesterday because I new I would have time to play it on the GBA. All I can say is WOW! This game is great and if you own the system you owe it to yourself to buy since it only only costs $30.00. I think I'm enjoying it more than Metroid Prime so far. Great game!

    I concur. In a few more months it will be even better, as I will be playing it on my TV. [​IMG]

    I agree as well.

    I just started playing it yesterday, and have been riping through it like I'm on a mission.

    Up to area 6 already. Loving every minute of it.

    I'm asking for it for Christmas. Maybe I should ask for a GBA-GCN link cable, too.

    It's a great game for the 5 hours it lasts, better than I expected.

    I'm probably gonna pick it up tomorrow. You can get it for $25 at a number of places.

    Lots of good GBA games lately. I actually prefer this over Metroid Prime.

    I love the game as well, especially on my 32" screen!

    I was telling my wife how much fun this game is. She says it must be since I took Yu-Gi-Oh out the GBA for Metroid [​IMG] Great game that no GBA owner should miss out on [​IMG]

    Just thought I'd mention that is the most fun I've had with a game is years. I will be VERY sad when it's over...

    Now hear me out her guys because I thought I wouldn't be the only one to mention this. I know the thrust of the thread has been for the most part positive and I really hate throwing a negative (even if its a small one) but its something I found made my time with Fusion a bit less enjoyable.
    I disliked the Navigation terminals introduced in the game. They kind of took some of the token exploration elements that I enjoyed in the Metroid series out of the game and made it a bit too linear IMO.
    Now don't misconstrue that as saying I disliked the game. I still enjoyed Fusion as it was, the story segments were nice with some very cool artwork and this definitely played like an excellent Metroid game but the Navigation Terminals were just a constant "HEY YOU, GO THERE NOW" sign that I wish would have been made more open to exploration (besides just finding the energy tanks and missle upgrades).
    Its a great game with an awesome pick up and play quality. The length doesn't even bother me as I also beat it in about 5-6 hours but I would be lying if I didn't mention the above as a bit of a disappointment.

    Romier-

    Couldn't it be said that the idea of a Navigation Terminal would be very effective in a space station? So then couldn't it be said that their inclusion in the game is there because of the setting and not because of the gameplay?

    BTW, I don't have the game...yet.

    I haven't played the game, but I'm hoping I will on the 25th. I understand what you're saying and can agree with you that it seems a little unbecoming of the series, but I'll see for myself eventually.

    I see your point as well Romier however, for me this is a positive as I don't as much time wandering around doing nothing. Regardless, isn't is great to have a NEW 2D Metroid on any platform. [​IMG]

    This game is awesome! I've only played about an hour or two so far, and it's so much better than what I remember of Super Metroid.

    I have every intention of getting this game with my gameboy player in June. I've given up on playing anything intensive on my GBA, and I've skipped the gbasp.
