Having picked up some Microsoft moon money a couple weeks back, I wasn't sure what to buy (though I did highly consider Burnout DLC). After trying the trial, I decided on Shadow Complex.
The game offers a HUGE map to explore and conquer, and honestly has an intensely old-school feel to it. What I mean by that, is that there are a lot of areas that you can get to by 'alternative' methods. For example, if there's an area you technically shouldn't be able to reach because of a character limitation, by working your way around certain ways, and using your items to your advantage, you can sometimes reach them. It allows the newer players to search their hearts out for that item to get there, and the classic players to put their thinking caps on. All in all, I've played through Shadow Complex 4 times already, and even having 200 gamerscore on it, this is by far my favorite arcade game of all time. EVERYONE who liked ANY Metroid game EVER or Castlevania should try this, because it's mind blowingly good. I have no more fears about how 3D will work for Metroid: Other M.
