Metroid Prime review

Reviewed November 29, 2002

Zack M says: "Metroid Prime is not a first-person shooter, however. Nintendo itself has hailed the title as a first-person “adventure,” and for good reason; throughout the game, the player must pay close attention to his or her surroundings, observing and thinking more than shooting."

baller says: "Nothing beats a nice walk around the jungle. You have the beautiful rain that you appreciate for its glory as you watch it slowly drip down on your visor, the planet's various plants that look so welcoming, the peaceful creatures that are simply trying to make ends meet, but then suddenly the music shifts from relaxing tunes to upbeat music that the Space Pirates always play everytime they make their entrance.

mariner says: "Many people have commented on how Metroid Prime is the greatest game ever, lavishly heaping praise on every last bit.

mrshotgun says: "Let's just say - it's about damn time. Metroid, long the ignored bastard red head of the Nintendo all-stars, has finally been redone for the next generation of video gaming. The Mario Brothers, the Legend of Zelda and Donkey Kong had been getting next-gen titles for years. Sonic the Hedgehog and Final Fantasy had gone on to huge success in the next-gen systems of the Nintendo 64, Playstation and Dreamcast.
