    I've only played it for about 45min, but so far it feels great. I'm still getting used to the melee attack, as that's a new move for Samus, but overall, the game plays great. And the graphics looks great on the 3DS. Everybody who said the 3D looks good, was telling the truth. The backgrounds really pop in 3D.

    Can't wait t play more this weekend when I have some free time.

    Does having to use the circle pad hinder the experience?

    would you say Samus Returns is reason alone to get a 3DS or 2DS?

    No. Metroid has never been a twitch based game, so the circle pad feels fine.

    If you're a huge Metorid fan, sure. But if you're not that into it, than I don't know what to tell you? I still think the 3DS is my favorite Nintendo system ever made(the Switch could easily take its place in a year). It has a huge library of amazing games, it's pretty cheap, and is highly portable. There's plenty of great games to play besides Metroid, but again, if you're a fan of 2D Metroid, I would say it's worth it.

    thanks.

    there are several games on the 3DS that I'm interested in, but maybe after another price drop or really good Holiday sale or something.

    also, still waiting if VC comes to the Switch. if it's not any time soon, then maybe I'll pick up the 3DS just for the VC.

    you can play NES/SNES VC titles on the Switch, yes?

    Yeah, that is highly disappointing. But, better to avoid another Federation Force or Other M fiasco. Glad Retro is back on board. But definitely not seeing it before 2021.
