    Right - I'm currently stuck on that bloody Omega Pirate. I've looked at several guides online and I *still* can't kill the bastard. I know roughly what to do:
    knock his armour off, and then shoot him when he's invisible and recharging (using the X-Ray visor to see him)

    But has anyone got any tips? I see power bombs are a way, but has anyone got a foolproof guide?

    I haven't got a foolproof guide, but I didn't struggle that much with the Omega Pirate (although Ridley nearly resulted in a pad smashing) but one good rule is never use your best ammo (i.e. super-missiles, power bombs) until the boss gets lower on energy. That's when the tougher attacks start coming out, and that's when you want to take out the boss quickly.

    When the cut-scene ends you should immediately go to Morph Ball and boost between his legs. Set off a Power Bomb and get clear of him. With a bit of luck you'll have knocked off a couple of the armour plates. Remove the remainder with charged plasma beam shots.

    When he goes invisible you should hang around the phazon pool that was behind him when you entered the room and face back towards the door you came in by. He won't appear in a pool next to where you are, so he'll re-appear by one of the other two. When he does run towards him charging the plasma beam then let it off. If you're quick you might get two shots in, especially if you don't fully charge.

    Rinse and repeat.

    I remember when Prime came out a few people were having problems with omega pirate. I outed him on my first attempt. Only boss that gave me problems was the last one. It managed to kill me a few times.

    Mine was Meta Ridley. The last was a cinch compared to her.

    How awesome is this game!?

    Started it last night, having previously watched my brother play about half of it years ago and having played MP2 for a few hours. Was gonna just play MP2 (as I liked it), but thought I might as well start from the start.

    It's bloody good it is. Looks amazing too, and it's very imersive. You get a real feeling of being in this starnge place, with nobody to help you, up against god only knows what. Well, my scanner knows too. :)

    Ok, the backtracking isn't the most fun (respawning enemies!!!) and the controls can annoy at times, but it's still an awesome game. Great fun finding your way around the areas.

    I'm considering rebuying this with Wii controls, even though I know it's a bit of a ripoff.

    Am I the only one that got bored of MP? It takes so long to get going that after a few hours I just couldn't bring myself to play it anymore.

    Never got on with it myself, got around 5 hours in but eventually realised I wasn't having fun and it was a chore to play, Super Metroid is a great game but I disliked the transition to FPS as with Prime, I'm glad the Prime series is finished and they're moving the franchise in a new direction as Other M looks great.
