Product Details


Metroid Prime is a first-person adventure game. Players control a bounty hunter named Samus Aran who must unravel a mystery behind the ruined walls scattered across Tallon IV.The game opens just as Samus' spaceship docks on a Space Pirate vessel orbiting the planet. Immediately, the beautiful graphics slap you across the face. Trust us, it's a firm slap. A silky-smooth framerate accommodates razor-sharp visuals of efficient machinery and foreign architecture. Meanwhile, a cinematic soundtrack sets the mood and eerie sound effects thicken the alien atmosphere.

Samus's Best Moment

Strengths: I thought this game had many strengths espiacially the bosses being so fun.

Weakness: The game wasnt bright enough. And the metroids really annoyed me.

I think this is an overall great game and would recommend it to any one who likes first person views. This is definatly one of samus's best moments. I hope the second one is just as good if not better.

Game of the year (a few years ago)

Strengths: Great graphics, good action

Weakness: View/movement controls are a little lacking

I'm not so good at first-person shooters so I try not to judge on how I play. This game has some great graphics and sound which really immerse you in the environment. The learning curve was a little steep for me, but I'm improving as I go. The only thign I wish they had done differently was incorporating the C-stick. While walking around, you can't look up or down, only when aiming your cannon,...

Metroid Prime

Strengths: Strong storyline, great graphics and music, zillions of collectibles

Weakness: Having to walk all over creation!

I greatly enjoyed Metroid Prime. The graphics and puzzles were great (and I didn't even have to resort to a walkthrough except to find five of the missile expansions). The default hint system is seamless with regular gameplay and is a nice tug in the right direction, showing you where the next 'plot item' is located. The visor system is neat and frustrating at the same time. Having to walk back...

Nintendo Metroid Prime

Strengths: Best FPS out for the Gamecube

Weakness: Save Points, Controls, Tough Bosses

Nintendo Metroid Prime for the GameCube is the premier FPS game for the system. It's basically like the Halo for Gamecube without the multiplayer. You play the role of a some type of outer space bounty hunter and with the help of your guns and other gadgets you make your way through levels by either blowing things up or solving puzzles. The game is a lot of fun, but expect to be frustrated at...

Game of the year

Strengths: Incredible graphics, gameplay, music, replayability, bosses

Weakness: Control scheme (maybe)

Honestly, if it wasn't for the darn control scheme (there is no dual analog support), Metroid Prime would have been one of the most universally accalimed games of all time. It's a game that features awesome music: dozens of breath-taking tunes. It's a game of beautiful vistas--whether you're in the jungle or the desert or a blizzard or a lake of fire, Metroid Prime goes over the top in the...
