There is no online play for MP3:C only the ability to share screenshots and "accomplishments" with other players. Be sure to check posts where online play is mentioned for white text by highlighting the posts.I'm a bit confused, people are saying that there is online play for Corruption, but the IGN review (video and text) makes no mention of it...
I'll probably buy this, but I have to start being a little more cautious of what I buy, my game bill is starting to add up
And it's not even september!

I'll be honest, i have never played a metroid game in my lifeThis thread is about Metroid Prime...
Start here.^ Thanks for backing me up zap2 unless that is some sarcasm i have failed to pick up on

But judging by screenshots, it appears that it is in the first person perspective, Samus has a gun, and you shoot monsters in the game, hence me calling it a "First Person Shooter"
If i am missing something blantantly obvious here, I am sorry
Unfortunately, that oversimplification means that people are probably expecting something similar to Halo, and that's very far from what the Metroid games are about. If anything, people expecting a shooter similar to the current (and IMHO, "stale") FPS genre will be sorely disappointed, unless they are specifically looking for something a bit unique. From what I've heard, it's not like Hunters--which was definitely more 'shooter'--but more like the original 'cube Metroids, focusing on exploration, though with the simplified controls there are some areas with a bit of shooter type gameplay.Guys come on...its a FPS, just like Hunters.
Your in First Person, and you Shoot.....FPS.
I've recently started playing Super Metroid....but clearly that isn't an FPS...its done in 3rd person.
So because the game has adopted a more 'shooter' control scheme (actually, there are several controller settings, and one of them is more like a mouse/keyboard combo), due to complaints I would wager, does that mean gameplay should be forced to be something more akin to the mass of shooters that we already have? I wouldn't think that's such a great idea. Again, considering it as solely a FPS does a major disservice to the game, and more often than not sets people up for disappointment.I've recently started playing Super Metroid....but clearly that isn't an FPS...its done in 3rd person.
I did NOT like Prime 1...I hated the controls. But also I was expecting an normal FPS...it wasn't. Clearly the controllers for Prime 1 and 2 were not based for shooting, they were for exploring.
However Hunters(and from the look of it Prime 3) controls are that of a FPS. Yes, there is more exploring then say Halo, but too me, its an FPS.
This still won't deter those from saying it's in first person and you shoot, therefore, first person shooter. I don't get how the Prime series, which are very unique from other first person titles, can be labeled so easily to some. To me, FPS is a label specifically given to games with a shooter focus.Metroid is a FPA, just like Oblivion, Thief. Dare I say Deus Ex? Shooting isn't what progresses you, it's not the driving gameplay element only in boss battles. It's exploration. It doesn't even completely take place in the first person.
Hunters was an FPS. Exploration was kept to a bare minimum and remained linear. It was specifically designed to be a deathmatch multiplayer.
