The first "Metroid" product was on the now-defunct Nintendo Entertainment System. Realizing the value of owning such a recognizable brand, Nintendo relaunched the "Metroid" franchise with the high-profile release of "Metroid Prime" in November 2002 on its GameCube platform. Other titles, all of which have been best sellers, maintained the franchise's reputation for impressive 3-D graphics and engrossing battle scenes.
Uh, so I've never even owned a Nintendo system, but isn't every single Metroid title aside from Prime and its still-in-development sequel a 2D
The last John Woo film I saw was the unbelievably brain-meltingly god-awful "Windtalkers". If his most recent film is as bad as you guys suggest, it doesn't sound as if things have improved since then. I can't much imagine ever wanting to see another of his films...This comment was edited on Apr 7, 17:56.
