Metacritic

JimD: I never played metroid, so maybe I enjoyed this more than it deserved. But it did look and feel stunning. Just a shame about the nutso storyline.

Ledge: This is ok I guess but y’know what I’m just not that into platformers. Also the plot and dialogue are atrocious.

Developer Interview

Forksclovetofu: The metroidvania of my dreams, fully realized and rendered and hella fun. Certainly the best looking XBLA game I’ve ever seen. This is another one I would’ve personally voted for if I had played/beaten it before the poll.

Gamasutra weighs in on ‘The Complex Question’

Cozwn: The best thing is that the world is very coherent, unlike most of the metroidvanias, it really feels like one complex despite the variation in backgrounds.

BNW: Neck and neck with Braid for best xbox live arcade game. Both criticized for their stories by people who don’t understand what a book is for.

The Shadow Complex conundrum

Will M: This game managed to be incredibly amazing in spite of Orson Scott Card’s involvement and that’s a feat.
