  • 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.

Nintendo World Report

  • Summary: Step through the portal to a new world where everything is familiar, yet creepier and more difficult.
  • Pros: Beautiful graphics and sound, Improvements in mood and pacing, New abilities branch out further from series staples, Proven 3D Metroid gameplay
  • Cons: None of the last game’s (admittedly minor) problems have been fixed, Novelty multiplayer mode can’t stand on its own

Metroid Prime 2: Echoes GameCube Review

DarkZero
4 January 2005
  • Conclusion: For a game that sports Echoes as a subtitle, you would be forgiven for thinking that you are about to relive Retro’s 2002 effort all over again but MP2 does little to substantiate the appropriateness of its title. An echo can be classed as a repetition or an imitation but to me MP2 is 20% an echo of its 2002 counterpart and a salient 80% advance in innovation and improvement over what came before.

Review: Metroid Prime 2: Echoes

N-Europe
2 December 2004
  • Conclusion: I guess I'm being harsh and fussy. Prime was great, and I am thrilled at the chance to play more of it. But maybe they could've called this Metroid Prime 1.5: Echoes.
  • Pros: Rewarding, Long, Good multiplayer, Great fun
  • Cons: If anything, as good as it is, it doesn't look like the result of 2 years work.
