Did You Know?


The game was orginally going to have narration by Samus, but it was cut out of the U.S. version. The opening narration can still be found in the game's code See more »


Narrator: The cosmos. In the vast universe, the history of humanity is but a flash of light from a lone star. The light of a single person should be lost in space and time. But among the stars, there is one light that burns brighter than all others: the light of Samus Aran. Her battles extend beyond her life and etch themselves into history. Here, another chapter of that history will be written.

Wow...... just wow.
4 August 2003 | by (Pine Valley, California) – See all my reviews

Eight years. That is how long we have waited for a new Metroid game. Eight freaking years. The only game we had to remind us that there was a Samus Aran was Super Smash Bros. But still, eight years. Would the magic that made the original games an instant hit still be there. As I immediately popped the disc into my Gamecube, I hoped that this would be the title everyone was waiting for.

I was not displeased.

The game is one of Nintendo's best games in the past decade, like Zelda: OOT, Mario 64, or the original super nintendo hits. Yes there isn't too much of a story compared to Metroid Fusion, but it has everything that made the first three games classics. The exploration. The power-ups. And of course, the huge, terrifying bosses. The 3D graphics help put these in a new dimension. Oh, and the 3D graphics are also about the best for any game in existence. Yes, better than ANY other game. Oh, and the music? Don't get me started. I'll spend an hour discussing how perfect it is. The best thing about Prime, though? The seemless transition of the 2D side-scrolling elements to a 3D first-person view. It is absolutely flawless. At times, you'll actually feel like you're playing a side-scrolling Metroid. I could talk about Prime more, but let's just close the topic with: the best game in existence.

BOTTOM LINE: You need to own a Gamecube just for this title. No, not Mario, not Zelda, this one. You will thankful for doing so.
