OK

  • Summary: This game is ok. It was fun at first but then it seems like your going back and forth. Fist you must complete your mission to get to one place. Then face a difficult boss. Once you achive your goal there, you will get another mission that makes you go to the same palce you where at before. It is constant going back and forth around the planet.

Half-Way Decent at Best

  • Summary: I'm not sure how Metroid Prime got overhyped to this point, but it really isn't as special as one would believe. Perhaps the Metroid Series name, but who cares.

Woefully Overrated

  • Summary: Metroid Prime, generally touted not only as one of the greatest Gamecube games but also as one of the greatest games of all time. Well to put it plain I just cannot conceive of quite why this game is held in such high regard. I played the game back in the day but didn't really get very far, so when I pulled out a box of my old GC games this was the first one that I put in my Wii, I really wanted to see what all the fuss was about and actually expected to thoroughly love...

The brutal truth

  • Summary: I have had this for a while and really haven't bothered with it too much,why? If I had seen past the overhyped reviews I would have seen a game that has,very few save points that have to be traipsed back to time and time again,respawning enemies the minute you leave/re-enter a room,combine this with the lack of save points and it's a nightmare to save your game should you just want to switch it off,the developers obviously thought you wouldn't want to do anything else!

Excellent arcade spills slightly questionable controls.

  • Summary: Certainly a great looking game and there are many subtle effects that show that there has been alot of care and attention in creating it. The controls are different from your usual first person game, you cannot strafe or look up/down unless without standing still and pressing strafe or the look button. The strafe button turns into a lock on button if there's anything to lock onto in your field of vision.

It just didn't live up to the hype

  • Summary: I'm sorry, I really wanted to like this game, and I did pretty much enjoy it, but my growing disappointment cast a pall over the whole experience of playing it. Someone else has mentioned the weak graphics - they really aren't that spectacular, you know. They're certainly impressive at times, but overall it's nothing to get too excited about; the game has a slightly cartoonish style which doesn't fit with the supposedly tense gameplay.

  • Summary: bueno tras haber jugado al anterior metroid y habiendo finalizado este paso al analisis: a favor:el juego obviamente ha mejorado en graficos,los diseños son mucho mejores(enemigos,escenarios....)pero si tienes el primer metroid prime,te deja un poco sabor agridulce. Da la sensacion que simplemente se han limitado ha incluir la version oscura de samus aran,no obstante con los graficos,la verdad es que flipas y si es la primera vez que juegas a un metroid es un juego que...
  • Pros: graficos mejorados respecto a la anterior version
  • Cons: historia muy convencional

Nur halbwegs gelungener Sprung in 3D

  • Summary: Heute schreib ich über mein erstes GameCube- Spiel "Metroid Prime", das zugegebenermaßen auch Kaufgrund für die Konsole war. Als erstes Spiel der Kultreihe präsentiert sich der neueste Teil der Samus-Saga als reiner 3D- Shooter (KEIN Actionadventure!!!) And here we go: Story ==== Zeitlich ist der neueste Teil zwischen "Metroid" (NES) und "Metroid II" (Gameboy) angesiedelt.
  • Pros: endlich wieder ein Metroidspiel, gute Grafikeffekte, abwechslungsreiche Welten
  • Cons: miese Musik, quasi null Story, keine optionale 3rd person view

  • Summary: Vorgeplänkel: Die Serie Metroid dürfte einigen ja schon bereits bekannt sein, hat die Serie doch gerade auf dem Snes Kultstatus erreich. Auch ich durfte vor kurzem noch das Original Snes Spiel auf meinem mittlerweile vergilbten SNES zocken. Positiv bei dem Spiel damals, es wurde gleich mit Lösungsbuch ausgeliefert – Anleitung war damit überflüssig da alle spielrelevanten Steuerungen dort erklärt worden.
  • Pros: detaillierte Grafik, großer Umfang, viele Bonis
  • Cons: veraltetes und lngatmiges Gameplay, seltene Speicherpunkte, wenig Story
