Good, but slightly annoying like all Metroid titles
on 12 February 2006
This is a good game, and is an improvement upon its predecessor in every way. Excellent graphics,sound, gameplay, weapons, storyline etc. (the others reviewers here have done a good job going through the positives). But as mentioned by some reviewers, the concept of backtracking (common to all metroid games) does get very annoying after a while. I managed to overcome it in Metroid prime, which took me about 3-4 months to finish as I frequently lost interest for large periods of time (but I always came back to it). With MP:echoes, I simply couldn't find the motivation to repeat it (not because its worse than its predecessor, its just having to go through the same experience again), it just wasn't enjoyable after a while. I've not touched the game in about 7 months ( I was around 25-30% through it). I really want to get back to it and finish it, but with the whole business of backtracking it feels more like going back to finish a chore.
