Product Description

Metroid Prime: Hunters challenges your skills as you control Samus Aran, the space bounty hunter made famous in the Metroid series. A ferocious race, now extinct, has left behind relics of their once powerful warrior culture. Now bounty hunters from across the galaxy are racing against each other in order to lay claim to these relics hoping to harness their power for themselves. It's the race of a lifetime, as you guide Samus to the relics before other hunters can reach them - and use them on her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Metroid + DS = NONSTOP FUN March 24, 2006
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game a couple days ago, and after getting familiar with it, I can finally write a review.

Graphics - Let's face it, the ds isn't known for it's graphical quality, especially when it comes to 3D. But these graphics are great. They aren't as good as todays standard consoles, but I don't recall any N64 or Playstation game looking this good.Best out there right now for the DS so I give it a 5/5.

Control - Control with the stylus takes a while to get used to, but once you get the hang of it it's a lot like using the mouse for a computer. If your left handed don't worry because they have a special setting made special for you guys. If you still can't get use to the stylus then you can use the buttons for aiming. 4.5/5

Sound - If you've heard the music from the original metroid prime then you've heard the music to this game. Sometimes can be very intense to build up suspense of what's going to happen. 4/5

Replay Value - Just like the other metroid prime games, you have a log book. Playing through the first time, you can ignore this, but filling it up to 100% can be a challenge. You also have energy and missle expansions. Single Player mode is pretty short though.

As for the Online, this is an excellent feature. There's a battle mode and you can chose from any of the character's you have beaten. This can provide for hours of fun. You can also create friends and rivals who you can compete with in 7 different forms of battle. You can also text and voice chat with your friends which was unbelievably clear. I could understand every word when I tried this. (with Online) 5/5

Fun Quality - I personally got bored with the previous metroid prime games with the gamecube, but for some reason this one is different.

4.0 out of 5 stars Samus and the Shooting Stars April 8, 2006
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
A good First-Person Shooter on the Nintendo DS may sound like an April's Fool joke, but Metroid Prime: Hunters is definitely more than just that. The game is one of the very few in the DS' library that can rival Nintendo's competitor (namely, Sony) when it comes to graphical presentations on a handheld. Add in an ass-kicking multiplayer mode, and the potential to appeal to mainstream gamers ensues.

Butt-kicking Bounty Hunter Samus Aran returns to star in this action-packed adventure. This time round, Samus is in an area called the Alimbic Cluster, and she's on a quest to locate eight "octolyths" (whatever that is) scattered across various planets in the cluster itself. The purpose? A powerful energy source is hidden in the Alimbic Cluster, and it's believed that the octolyths will hold to the key in unlocking it. Here begins a journey for Samus to unearth the mystery.

The DS works neither like a computer keyboard nor a console controller with analog sticks, so it's understandable for potential players of Metroid Prime: Hunters to be concerned about how the game actually plays. Seasoned First-Person Shooter players may want to know that traditional FPS controls do not apply for this particular game. Replacing the norm is the default stylus method of controlling the game. You'll get to aim by touching the (duh) touch screen, move around by using either the D-Pad or the four alphabetical buttons (depending on whether you're left or right-handed), and shoot using the shoulder buttons (again, depending on your written orientation). Awkward while this may sound, it actually works out pretty well, especially when you get used to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am 10 May 6, 2006
A Kid's Review
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Metroid Prime Hunters

Over all I give this game a 9/10 this is a must play and you will be playing it years from now.

Graphics:10/10 They are the best of any DS game to date. At time they may look polygonal but they are sweet.

Music:8/10 The sound in this game is amazing it is almost never repetitive and always keeps you on your feet. I would give it a 9 or ten but when searching for a wi-fi match you hear the same stupid music every time

Controls:10/10 or 0/10 First off the DS is a great place for FPS because of the touch screen ,it offers easy control over the GCN version. Many people complain about how bad the control is due to playing the game cube one so much but lucky for them they have a non-touch screen control! A,B,X,Y are like the c-stick. Morph ball and weapons are controled from the touch screen.

Gameplay: 9/10 The gameplay is short compaired to the GCN one but it will still take about 15 hr. to beat. The enemys are awsome and the other hunters are sweet but except Gorea the final boss there are just 2 bosses just getting harder every time you face them. As for wi-fi you can fight four random people after the match you have a chanch to add them to your rivals. Friends and rivals can play other modes with you aside from battle. Friends must give you a friend code to do so. Friends can also voice chat befor a match.

Story:8/10 Your average Metroid story some evil guy comes down in a comet and you kill it. End of story.

Diffuculty 9/10: This game will be very hard for anyone who has'nt played MP1 or MP2 but for a Metroid vereran it is a walk in the park.

Replay value:10/10 The story mode in this game is great but has ABSOLUTLY NO REPLAY VALUE!
