Snipe, it doesn't look anywhere near as polished as people have come to expect with Nintendo games. So much so that you really have to squint to even think it's somehow Metroid Prime related, when it was unveiled at the Nintendo World Championship no one even noticed.

I should think I'll buy this .. they didn't have to set this in the Prime world and could have made it Metroid Blast 2 or something... I am looking forward to Blast Ball the most, but that just makes my idea even more sound .. it has caused a lot of hype, both negative and positive. I am swaying just into the snipe camp for this one.
Wishing my SONM friends a very happy & successful Q3 in gaming

Snipe. It's neither the game we wanted nor the game we needed.

Nintendo dropped the ball on this one. If they had called it anything other than Metroid it would have been much less hated, but as it went down, it's now known as a Metroid game that shouldn't be a Metroid game.

I couldn't even get excited for this if I took a bottle of viagra pills.

Its an odd looking spin-off that bares little resemblance to the main Metroid series, but as far as the gameplay and stuff goes, it looks like a lot of fun, might end up being an unexpected hit.

Still want a 2D Metroid game on the 3DS though.

Hype. Sure it doesn't look anything like a metroid game, and I'm not a huge fan of the art style, but the gameplay looks pretty decent, and blast ball looks pretty fun, and at the end of the day that's all that matters.

I was going to say "hype I guess" but if I feel the need to put "I guess" at the end then it's pretty obvious that I'm not very excited for it at all. I can't make up my mind on whether I think this looks good or just average, so for that reason I'm going to say snipe.
