    How much of that is actual gameplay footage though? Doesn't look like much of it really... All the 3rd person stuff looks like FMV (or even live action stuff). If it's FMV-it's a nice FMV, but I'd still like to see more actual gameplay action in the commercials.

    I believe the live action scenes were filmed specifically for the commercial. Still, it does give chills.

    I saw the commercial the other day on IGN. I think they did a terrific job with the production value of the game. Honestly... I haven't seen much of the in game action, short of the Parasite Queen stuff. Maybe there are some good surprises in store for us. [​IMG]

    I played the newest demo in stores today. AHHHHH....Metroid goodness. It is so damn good, except I wish I could control it dual analog. It is only single analog, ala goldeneye. There is no strafing, which is my only complaint.

    Anyone know what movies will be showing this commerical in the previews? It must look awsome in a theater. Heck they should make a Metroid movie. That would be unbelievable. Very little dialoge though. [​IMG]

    Wow looks really good. Only problem is that it should have had a female voice as Samus narrating it.

    Too much CGI/live action. Sean, where was the demo?

    Funcoland, Best Buy. Those are the two places I saw and played it. The menu to the disc looks like every other nintendo demo, but look closely and metroid should be playable.

    whoa....

    I haven't played Metroid since the NES but that demo is so impressive that I just might be adding a Gamecube to my system.

    Nintendo NEVER gets it right.
    When they show commercials with lots of gameplay (smash bros melee) people cry about how bad nintendo does commercials. Now when they do a commercial like squaresoft/sony does (ie sometimes no gameplay at all, just FMV) - people still cry.
    HARHAHARH!!!

    Nintendo needs to look at Sega's commercials instead (sans the crappy SG ones)

    Judging by how successful Nintendo continues to be as a company, and how badly Sega has done in the past and continues to struggle in the present, I think Sega is the one who should be taking lessons from Nintendo. [​IMG]
    Back on topic. The MP commercial is amazing. One of the best all-time (next to Mario Bros. 3 & Smash Bros. N64). It does its job in setting the mood of the game and shows just enough gameplay footage to leave you wanting more.
    As for the controls...you can strafe in the game. Once you lock onto an enemy you can strafe around them using the analog stick.

    I don't need ads for me to be sold on this game.
