They actually do make a nice duo. Honestly, when I first saw the title I was interested to see how it would turn out and this is pleasant result. The armor for both of them is the classic, iconic look is perfect for them. The setting is great, the two heroines combating legions of heretic Geth platforms and swarms of Metroids is a wonderful combination. The background, I can't tell, Samus most likely has been there, as I haven't played all that much Metroid.
