    Metroid Prime just got the highest mark that I've ever seen GameSpot give out.

    http://gamespot.com/gamespot/filters/products/0,11114,447244,00.html

    I've seen the clips and images. Based upon my experiences with the previous games, (especially Super Metroid), I can only say that I'm pretty excited out playing this one. It's enough to make me go out and get a Game Cube.

    Metroid Prime has been getting outstanding reviews all over the place since it was released. Well, everyone has been giving good marks other than the dumbasses expecting a regular FPS game and saying it's not Halo so it sucks (seriously, some people have been stupid enough to say that).

    It's really too bad that the creator of Metroid had to die before he could see this.

    Maybe he wants the PS2 because he doesn't like the game.

    Speaking of FPS', I just bought Red Faction 2 for PS2, it's such a good game. Chunks of the wall fly off when explosions hit them, little pieces do on some walls from bullets, it's very nice, the first one was great too.

    I finished Red Faction 1 on my PS2 yesterday, good game, perhaps a bit short. In RF2 do the game force the player to use the Geo-MOD-thingy or is it like RF1 where there´s about one place you must use it?

    Is the story related to RF1, with oppressed people revolting and things like "Better Red then dead" written on the walls? I like the Revolution theme.

    I never liked that Red in Red Faction doesn´t mean socialist or communist but stands for Mars.

    Yea, it is a rebel uprising against a Saddam-esque figure. The geo-mod is used quite a bit, so far at least.

    RF1 is great. RF2 has double-weapons, and you have to fire using L1 for left hand, and R1 for right hand.

    As for the shortness, many games are nowadays, and thankfully Red Faction has one of the best multiplayer features of any game I've played. RF1 had a great level, Warlords, that carries over and is in RF2.

    I felt Red Faction had the worst single player I've ever played in an FPS (though I've never played Motyr). I couldn't stand it. On the last level I just quit the game and uninstalled it from my computer.

    I´ve only played it once on a computer but several of my friends played and liked it. And as guru said, among console FPS-games it regarded as pretty good.

    I just rented Time Splitters 2 last night. It's lacking some of the common features of regular FPS's, like the ability to jump, but other than that it's one of the best FPS's I've ever played on console. The multiplayer on that is amazing, and there is alot of stuff do do in the game.

    Red Faction is garbage.

    Metroid wasn't a bad game, but it wasn't my cup of tea.
