It's fun, but there's just not enough there to keep you playing.

  • Summary: I love the Metroid series as much as anyone, and I know that this isn't supposed to be strictly a Metroid game. However, the fact that there is so little for the player to do after the first hour (or even half hour) puts a serious stain on this game. I can say that the graphics and the sounds are nice, and work well for the Nintendo DS, but there is very little else that can bring you back.

Too complicated

  • Summary: Metroid Pinball is a well executed game with smooth play and good graphics. But it is just too complicated for a pinball game. There are too many non pinball modes that had me reaching for the manual to figure out what to do. I would rather they give us more table layouts than just the 2 in the game. In my opinion, portable games should be simple and easy to pick up. This game was by no means simple.

Highly addictive, but not enough of it.

  • Summary: It doesn't make much use of the touch-screen feature of the DS but the dual-screen fits perfect for the tall nature of a pinball table (though there is annoying unseen space between them). I've never played any of the other Metroid games but I do know that the main character can turn into a ball. You play that ball in this game (or just control the flippers that move it) and the tables are brilliantly done and are full of wild features.

Metroid prime pinball - DS

  • Summary: Ce jeu est assez bien pour un flipper, mais se termine beaucoup trop vite. Attendre la baisse du prix du neuf peut-être bien. Ce jeu ne mérite pas de se jeter dessus en priorité.
  • Pros: Graphiquement réussi, On se croit vraiment devant un flipper
  • Cons: Se termine beaucoup trop vite, Manque un scénario, Pas assez de mini jeux
