Am I the only one who thinks this looks absolutely horrendous? The gameplay itself looks as un-Metroidish as can be, and the hint of cutscenes just turns me off. What I loved about the original 8- and 16-bit games was that the whole game experience was so organic, intuitive and non-verbal: no other human characters, no conversations, no damn cutscene soap-operas. Even such a primitive game as the original NES Metroid from 1986 managed to create a feeling of isolation and creeping dread because it really made you feel like you were alone in a vast, hostile, and unnatural alien world, without any human elements to rely upon. Its one of the aspects that made Metroid so unique and beautiful. This looks like any random half-assed sci-fi soap-opera mixed with generic 3D action gaming. I wonder what they were thinking when they turned over such an atmosphere-based series as Metroid to Team Ninja.
And yes, I know I'm totally making a hen out of a feather by way of a two minute video, but that trailer just gave me really bad vibes.
