Summary: Metroid Prime Hunters is a different sort of Metroid game, with different goals, a different focus, but one that succeeds in what it sets out to do. It's a bit unwieldy to control at times, but if you're lucky enough to have the stand from the 3DS game Kid Icarus Uprising, this game benefits greatly from it.
Summary: My 7.5 year old was ds downloading this at camp with friends and came home begging for it, we came onto Amazon and found it used for an amazing price and we got it 5 days later. He hasn't stopped playing it since.
A multiplayer experience that's worth hunting down.

Summary: I still remember that day I got my first DS - it was 2 days after my birthday, and I had specifically asked for everyone to just give me money so I could get a DS and a game for it. This was back when there was only the large, original DS. That morning, my grandmother took me for school early so we could stop at the store and get it. I was personally planing to get Animal Crossing: Wild World to go with it, but they didn't have a copy at the store.
Summary: This is by far the best DS game I've played. The graphics are the best I've seen on a handheld (barnone). They are better than anything I've seen on the PSP! Movement is smooth and fluid. Aiming is precise with the stylus. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it can get a little cumbersome trying to aim with the stylus and hold the thing while trying to move and fire. You do get used to it after a while, but it's still cumbersome.
Summary: I admit, I only buy games when review sites give them high marks (hence the reason why my Amazon reviews tend to be so positive.) MP: Hunters is an amazing first person shooter, especially when you consider the fact that you're playing it on a handheld system. The control scheme takes awhile to get used to. Aiming is done with the stylus, while your other hand is used to move Samus as well as fire.
Summary: Metroid Prime for the GameCube was my first ever Metroid game, and it got me hooked on what I believe to be the best series I've ever played. Since that time, I've also played Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, Metroid Fusion (my favorite GBA game), Metroid Zero Mission, Metroid Prime Pinball, and, last but definitely not the least, Metroid Prime Hunters. I enjoyed all of these games, but the most recent is one of my favorite games I ever played.
Summary: A good First-Person Shooter on the Nintendo DS may sound like an April's Fool joke, but Metroid Prime: Hunters is definitely more than just that. The game is one of the very few in the DS' library that can rival Nintendo's competitor (namely, Sony) when it comes to graphical presentations on a handheld. Add in an ass-kicking multiplayer mode, and the potential to appeal to mainstream gamers ensues.

Summary: There are quite a few things to be said about this game, but I'll try to keep it very short. The first thing that must be taken into account is the controls, as it is what you use all game. On the DS, the control will take some getting used to. The standard controls should work fine, and mimick the modern Halo thumbstick control. The D-pad is actually easier to use than I expected, and the touch screen isn't all that difficult either.
Summary: Metroid Prime Hunters. I've been waiting. I got my DS in January of '05 and I got a "First Hunt" demo that came with it. I can say that I wasn't impressed simply because there was no depth, but I knew that the game certainly could be a great one. Metroid Prime for the Gamecube, to me, was not a very good game. Hard-to-use controls, single player only, a lot of backtracking... and so on. This game has backtracking, but it has easy controls and great multiplayer.
Summary: while the game was made for the DS, It shines on the 3ds XL. obviously it was made before they had any idea on what to do with the 3ds let alone 3dsxl but untill we get metriod for 3ds this will be sufficient.
