5.0 out of 5 stars I have been allowed to play deeper into the game September 10, 2002
Format:Video Game
I had the priviledge of playing a couple of hours of Metroid Prime, and I liked what I saw.
The game began with Samus on an outside platform. Thousands of asteroids were flying across the sky, and she could go to a clear spot on the platform and shoot them. Ultimately, however, she needed to search her surroundings for hidden devices that would open the doors of the structure. The adventure doesn't really begin until Samus enters the building.
This game has all kinds of terrain to explore--including some very Turok-esque jungles. These are huge places. I have no idea how long it will take people to finish the game, but I'm betting better than 60 hours.
Seen through Samus's visor, Metroid Prime is every bit as much about exploration and puzzle solving as it is about shooting. Samus's visor includes a window that exposes hidden signs and symbols. Once you uncover these clues, it is up to you to figure out how to arrange them to unlock door and find hidden items.
Metroid Prime's camera shifts to the third-person perspective when Samus curls up in a ball and rolls places. She rolls through tunnels that are otherwise too small to explore. By placing explosives on the ground, she can bounce her balled-up self to reach elevated tunnels.
The game also has these really nifty half-pipe areas. Once you find the right explosives, you can launch Samus over the top of the half-pipes to reach otherwise inaccessible ledges.
Per past Metroid games, Metroid Prime has plenty of creepy vermin to kill.
Thanks to the first-person perspective, Metroid Prime does not suffer the irritating camera problems that have plagued so many of the latest 3D games. You are inside Samus's helmet, so you see what she sees. Better look quickly, though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best game right now on the Gamecube, hands down. May 10, 2003
Format:Video Game
Well, the title pretty much says it all. Nintendo's fans (and even some fans of those "other" video gaming consoles) have waited 8 long years for the next installment of the Metroid series, having been tantalized in 1995 with the stunning (for the time) graphics and gameplay of Super Metroid on the 16-bit SNES console. Nintendo picked Retro Studios to produce the next installment in the series, which -- in a move that surprised many longtime fans -- was to be completely 3D, and played from a first-person perspective. What was this? Heresy! A Metroid game not in 2D? How could they do it?
Very carefully.
Someone at Nintendo had clearly read the writing on the wall, as Metroid Prime is probably the best game on the 'Cube right now, and also one of the best games on *any* next-gen system. It's that good. The gameplay, graphics, and, well, *everything* have been polished to a mirror sheen by the fine folks at Retro (literally; one of the cooler visual effects in the game causes your character's face to reflect on the visor in front of you when bright explosions go off nearby). The game moves slowly at first, as you explore a recently abandoned research frigate, but eventually picks up steam, and becomes downright frantic near the end, as you face several long, difficult stretches filled with enemies, and a series of climactic boss fights. However, the level of difficulty remains fairly low, as long as you devote some time to exploring the game world and searching out energy tanks and missile expansions. Also, the difficulty in the boss fights comes mostly from discovering the particular tricks you should use to fight them, not from the actual gameplay.
There are only a few minor points on which Metroid Prime can be faulted.
First, this style of game is not for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Samus fans, rejoice! February 10, 2003
Format:Video Game
I'll admit, just like everyone else when Metroid Prime was announced to be a 3d FPS I gave up hope. I thought it would obviously be the biggest mistake in the Metroid series. As the game progressed and the screenshots started coming out though, I became curious. And now that I've played through the game, I can say for sure: It is the best Metroid game to date. Bar none.
Prime is not actually a FPS, despite how it looks. It's not Halo, it's not even Half Life style. It shares more with Zelda 64, in fact. What I mean is that most all fighting is done via a lock on system. The game is far more based on adventure, strategy, and tactics. It's not based at all on aim, and very little on reflexes. It feels exactly like the Metroid series should. The 3d world feels completely natural. You'll spend a good deal of time doing jumps from ledge to ledge like before, but it's done perfectly in 3d. You'll never have to blindly leap, your view follows the leap perfectly.
The graphics are incredible, the best on the Gamecube to date. You might not be too impressed on the first level, but as you play through the game you'll see just why the graphics are so groundbreaking. It's hard not to be amazed when you jump out of a lake and water streams down the front of Samus's visor. The first time you try the Thermal visor or the X-ray visor, you'll be thrown for a loop. It's simply stunning. The bosses are incredible looking, and the game never skips a beat. Loading is done seamlessly as you move through the map, so you'll never see a loading bar even once.
The sound is incredible as well, you'll always be able to hear the enemies and the explosions without effort. The music fits the mood perfectly and never feels out of place. It's a perfect mix of old and new, sure to please any fan.
