Did You Know?


Kraid, the over-sized green adversary from Metroid (1986) and Super Metroid (1994), was supposed to make an appearance in this game in the Phazon Mines (just like Ridley did), but he was left out because of time constraints. It was widely believed that he was replaced by the Omega Pirate, however it has been confirmed that both were originally meant to appear in the game. See more »

Outstanding,brilliant, and beautifully amazing!

Evil waits below the surface. But first it must be found.

There's that mysterious music as the camera looks into the depths of space, pulls back, and reveals... a creepy space station sitting above Tallon IV. This vessel appears to be a space pirate frigate, and the Space Pirates have invaded Tallon IV mining Phazon and trying to collect artifacts.

Metroid Prime is a complex action/adventure game that weaves dark webs with story lines containing the dead Chozo race, the powerful Space Pirates, the mysterious element Phazon, and a beast only known as 'The Worm'. You are Samus aran, and you must find out how all these connect AND bring order to it! This is the best game to date. It contains a lot of action without being annoying. The graphics are stunning, and the boos fights are worth the wait. Metroid Prime takes you from the fiery tunnels of the Magmoor Caverns, to the beautiful snow land of Phendrana Drifts, to the rainy forest of the Tallon Overworld, to the barren shrine of the Chozo Ruins, and to the powerful mining base built by Space Pirates called 'Phazon Mines'. Prepare to have your mind blown, cause this game rocks! Evil waits below the surface. But first it must be found.
