Metroid Prime 2: Echoes Review

19 February 2006
  • Excerpt: Metroid Prime was the Nintendo success story of this generation, resurrecting the series (which has famously underperformed in the East but thrived in the West) at just the right time and in just the right way. Sandwiched between the hesitant critical praise that greeted both Super Mario Sunshine and The Wind Waker , Prime offered the most convincing reason not to write-off Nintendo as a major player in the industry, and served as stone cold proof that it had more to...

Metroid Prime 2: Echoes Review

  • Excerpt: People fear change. Especially within certain tried and tested genres. First person shooters, for instance, are one of the most holy of cows in gaming. Certain established facts aren't about to change anytime soon. When a gamer first picks up a shotgun, he knows what to expect and what situation to use it in. There is something to be said for this familiarity too, it certainly makes it much easier for new comers to pick up and play.

  • Summary: Nintendo's highly anticipated Metroid Prime 2: Echoes takes the bounty hunter Samus Aran on a dark journey through dangerous parallel worlds. Most of the elements that made the first Prime so successful are back, but new gameplay elements keep things fresh. These include new weapons, enhanced moves and a deeper storyline. MP2 also lets players challenge four opponents in a split-screen death match mode.

  • Conclusion: Metroid Prime 2 Echoes is every bit the sequel I had been waiting for since the first time I finished Prime back in 2002. It makes nearly all the necessary adjustments and in some areas still continues to wow me. Metroid Prime 2 is another sign that Nintendo is heading in interesting new directions.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Metroid Prime 2 is a very solid sequel to one of the best games of this generation. It stays faithful to the original Metroid games while giving players a completely fresh experience that you won't find in any other game, on any system. It's up there with Half-Life 2 and Halo 2 as the best games of 2004, and outperforms them both in many departments. Don't think - buy.

  • Conclusion: The other feature that professional game reviews belly-ached about not being included with the original is multiplayer. Played via split-screen (half and quarter) can be an entertaining diversion if you have some buddies handy. The modes included are Deathmatch and Bounty. Everyone will have their preference but my favorite multiplayer mode is Bounty, which mixes deathmatch and coin collecting.
