Game Description & Reviews:
I remember back when I was maybe around 12, I picked up a copy of this game called "Metroid Prime" at a discount price somewhere. I knew nothing of Metroid (I came from a PC only background) but it looked cool. So I boot up my trusty gamecube and load this guy. Fast forward 10 hours and I was still lost in wonder and amazement. The graphics were so good, the design was so good, and it was way too much for my little inexperienced console gamer head. Today, I go back and replay this classic in the wake of my gamecube's loss. Most people wouldn't consider this retro; I do.
Metroid Prime isn't purely one of the most atmospheric games out there, but also one of the very best offerings to come out of any system. It's sheer length of challenges and depth is breathtaking. Expect intelligent puzzles, a real-world feeling to the singleplayer campaign and epic First Person Shooter gameplay unlike most games that come out of this medium.
Samus Aran bounty hunter, after destroying the space pirates vessell, she lands on the planet below called Talon IV. It is here a race of alien bird-like beings called the chozo - the one's who raised Aran. This race made peace with the creatures of the planet and lived live to its potential, until it came - the leviathan - a giant meteor-like crater dispersing a poison - phazon all over the planet. The chozo could not stop its spread. Tallon IV became a nest for all things evil then. That's all I'll give away for now. You have been recommended, it truly is one of the lengendary games of our time!
If you are a person who is looking for more than just mindless fun from your games, then look no further. Retro Studios treated the Metroid series with the love and respect that it deserves, and gave us Metroid Prime. The games breaks away from the traditional Metroid formula in a way, in that it throws us into the viewpoint of Samus. That's right this game is played in first person. However, don't let that dissuade you. Simply playing the game for a few minutes should be enough to tell you that it is by no means your everyday first-person shooter title. Nintendo themselves refused to call it such, instead opting for "First-Person Action/Adventure". Prepare for an adventure filled with beautiful environments, wonderful musical pieces, and rewarding gameplay. Make sure you go in open-minded, though.
When I heard of this coming out, I though it was going to suck. How wrong I was. How wrong…I was. Flipping from 2D to 3D was gonna make or break the metroid series, and for me, it broke my face right off!
Besides moving to the third dimension, Nintendo also moved developers, giving to Retro the kit for Prime. All the favorite things about the old school metroids was now at glorious 3D and looked pretty damm outstanding. Who thought moving from 2D to 3D would be so great?
This game is one of the best out there for Gamecube, if not THE best. How the hell were they able to get the one iconic 2D platformer and turn it into an FPS in way that it works is beyond me, but the fact is they did it.
You play as Samus Aran and you're once again alone in a desolated planet, Tallon IV, which by the way is pretty important in the Metroid lore. Yeah, of course there are space pirates there to keep you busy.
As you push onwards you'll keep obtaning new abilities and will have to backtrack and access new areas until you ultimatelly face the final boss.
The graphics use a huge deal of the gamecube potencial to create enormous rooms, forest, mines, etc filled with enemies. The music builds a really nice atmosphere making everything just perfect.
This game will never let you down, so give him a try.
