5.0 out of 5 stars Samus returns with a vengeance November 21, 2004
By Matt O.
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I remember when the hype for the first Gamecube Metroid was buzzing. All the talk about the fps mode, all the sneers and the scowls regarding not actually being able to see Samus...and then the game came out. And maybe I'm just looking in the wrong circles, but I haven't met a single person who disliked the first Metroid Prime. It was, for all intents and purposes, a perfect game.

From what I've played of Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (I'm a little stuck at 9% in the Agon Wastes, and gamefaqs doesn't have anything up yet), I can definitely say its much of that same excellence with a little more added on for good measure. Once again, the most impressive aspect of the game seems to be the environments. Best example I've seen so far is the lightening that pours from the sky in the Wastes...lightening which can actually hurt you in the off chance that it does hit you. And the array of new enemies doesn't hurt the overall look of the game. But the real outstanding feature are the light and dark worlds, which are the "echoes" referenced in the title.

Reminescent of Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, every environment has its mirror image. The difference is that Aether's other half has a little bit of a goth complex, and as a result the enemies there are not only darker, but stronger. The environment is inhospitable to even Miss Aran, who is forced to hop from Luminoth beacon to beacon to minimize time in the miasma. Such is the life of a bounty hunter. And honestly, it gets a little irritating, but that's probably my biggest complaint. I will also agree with EGM's Shane that the plot seems like more of a Rare-style fetch quest than the average Metroid game, and nowhere near the incredible Metroid: Fusion plot. As for multiplayer, the experience hasn't been amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Metroid PRime Echoes: A Real Review November 27, 2004
A Kid's Review
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Intro: I'm sorry guys. I've been reading some reviews, and they are horrible. No one who wrote the reviews have even played it. And that guy who complained about the commercial- what does marketing have to do with a game? We know you're an xbox fan boy.

Review: Grade: *****

Why: Well, I startec the game up, and the first thing I liked about it was the music. Great music. I always find Metroid games to have great music. I played the 1 player game, and it was pretty good. You feel like you're actually facing a big challenge, even if you know what you are doing, which lacked in the first Metroid Prime game. The graphics are superb, and the controls are great. You can tell Nintendo liked the buttons from last time, because most of them did the same thing as they did in Prime. They added some new weapons too, that are good enough to get excited about. I'm not going to go around saying Metroid Prime 2's multiplayer is better than Halo 2, but it's pretty good. If for some reason you can't get Halo 2, or you're too young for it, Metroid Prime 2 is a great choice. I'll even go and say it's Story is better than Halo 2's. And that's why I give it a 5 out of 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Echoes with Greatness February 24, 2005
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have played every metroid game there is since the very first one, and this one does not lose it's originality in any way.

Starting out however, i did find myself questioning the areas and how unique they are, but after a short time I really found myself to liking the whole plot and the eerie Dark & Light lands.

The bosses are very cool and the game has just the right amount of challenge. The game is also very long, much longer than any other metroid game I have played. However I never even thought about thinking of saying that i was getting bored, the game stayed full all the way through and I'm still getting around to beating it on Hard mode.

I guess I would have to give this game 4.5 stars but i cannot do that cause it is not a choice, the reason i say 4.5 is because the music in this one I found not to be as good as all the other metroid games. However one track comes back from Super Metroid that brings back a great euphoric feeling, you'll see.

Do not believe that just because something is next-gen it cannot be classic and fullfill it's original tastes.

My favorite metroid games greatest to great:

1)Metroid Fusion (so eerie and i felt comfortably numb playing it)

2)Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (it's true beauty sneaks up on you)

3)Super Metroid (I find this to be the most classic to me, even more than the NES one)

4)Metroid Prime (start of a new breed)

5)Metroid II (ooo the good old days)

6)Metroid I (ooo the good old old days)

7)Metroid: Zero Mission (It's metroid, i love it no matter what, but i barely remember playing through this, the game must be beatable in about 1 hour)

4.0 out of 5 stars Not much different second time around December 19, 2004
By Cloud
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Many praised the first Prime as godlike and a modern masterpiece. The game was a beaut to look at but it was hard as hell and there was a lot of backtracking. Now the sequel comes and while it's not a failure on all fronts, the developers still haven't addressed some issues from the first one.

Story: What little story there is anyway. On the planet Aether, a race called the Luminoth is thriving, much like the Chozo on Tallon IV. They discover a massive meteorite is about to hit and when it does, the resulting energy causes a dimensional rip that provides 2 Aethers: Light and Dark. Afterwards, a Federation ship crash lands on Aether and a distress signal is sent to Samus. She must now stop the Ing, the race that occupies the Dark world.

Graphics: Improvements over the first one, which was beautiful anyway. Particle systems are better and levels seem more expansive. Bosses take up a huge chunk of the screen which makes it a bit annoying when you're trying to dodge.

Sound/Music: No voice overs except for Luminoth's weird voice(kinda like Zelda, no words just gibberish). The music is still the same: ambient textures with an otherworldly feel.

Gameplay: Basically the same as the first. 2 new visors: Dark Visor, allowing you to see objects and enemies that are in the dark world when you're in the light world. And the namesake Echo Visor, which looks like Ben Affleck's power from Daredevil. They took out some beams and added the Light and Dark beams, with get this: ammo. Instead of going nuts, you have to preserve your ammo, which got really irritating.

As for the difficulty, if you've never played the first one, I suggest you beat it first. At least then you'll know what to expect with this.
