Summary: This game is really fun. But don't buy it if you will never have someone to play it with because single player is so boring and confusing, I never even got past the first part. But the multiplayer is the only good part but that is so fun.
Summary: metroid prime 2 is good not as good as 1 but still awesome. id recommend you play prime 1 first or one of the gba games. this game is not easy. i played through to the last boss b4 dark samus emperor ing and i still havent beat it.
Great game, though doesn't surpass it's predecessor

Summary: Metroid Prime is my personal favourite game ever made. Retro did a magnificent job of taking the Metroid series and spinning it in a different direction while still maintaining what is inherently 'Metroid' about Metroid. It still looks excellent to this day and plays magnificently. So when Echoes came out, I bought it day one without needing to think about it. Echoes tries to add a few new elements to Prime's make-up.
Excerpt: "...of backtracking (common to all metroid games) does get very annoying after a while. I managed to overcome it in Metroid prime, which took me about 3-4 months to finish as I frequently lost interest for large periods of time (but I always came back to it). With MP:echoes, I simply couldn't find the motivation to repeat it (not because its worse than its predecessor, its just having to go through the same experience again), it just wasn't enjoyable ...
Good, but slightly annoying like all Metroid titles

Summary: This is a good game, and is an improvement upon its predecessor in every way. Excellent graphics,sound, gameplay, weapons, storyline etc. (the others reviewers here have done a good job going through the positives). But as mentioned by some reviewers, the concept of backtracking (common to all metroid games) does get very annoying after a while.
