Looking at a YouTube video of Metroid Fusion, I don't see anything that the Amiga could not match (more or less, anyway, I didn't start counting colours) graphics and audio-wise. Looks like something between Turrican and Flashback, which weren't even AGA games.

I think the lack of these kinds of titles is mostly about how the whole software ecosystem of the platform worked. Nintendo developed many games in-house for their own hardware, Commodore did not. As far as I can tell many Amiga games came from rather small developers, often just one or two people, whereas most popular console games were developed by large studios. And yeah, I'm sure there are exceptions both ways.
