Metroid Fusion

Game Description: Metroid Fusion is a side-scrolling action game that's more in line with the series' NES origin than its GameCube contemporary, the first-person action game Metroid Prime. In this one, players take the bounty hunter Samus on an extermination mission through a research facility to kill X parasites--nasty creatures that absorb and assimilate the powers of their host. After she survived an X attack through the use of a vaccine made with X parasite DNA, she can now absorb the parasites to regain health and obtain special powers, like the morph ball, space jump, and wave beam. The problem is that the parasites are quickly making their way through the research lab's many dangerous projects and subsuming their abilities.

Why so Serious?

Batman: The Brave and the Bold Screenshot

HIGH Every moment a spider is on the screen.

LOW A puzzle near the end that relies on a blind jump.

HIGH De-fleshing Jude the Dude with his own guns, then blowing apart his naked skeleton for good measure.

LOW The distinct lack of unlockables. Platinum is the reincarnation of Clover Studios, after all.

WTF "It's like when you're surfing porn on the toilet for 12 hours—when you do get up, it ain't a pretty sight."

With its irreverent humor and over-the-top violence, MADWORLD will deliver a unique core gaming experience currently missing on the Wii system.
