As in all of the games in the Metroid series, you control the female bounty hunter, Samus Aran, on a quest to seek and destroy the space pirates. Unfortunately, if you are a newcomer to the series, this game won't teach you much about who Samus Aran is, but that's not a requirement to enjoy the game. It's unfortunate at times that Nintendo shies away from dialogue, as they do in this game, though sometimes dialogue in video games comes off as too cheesy and ruins a good experience. We do get to see how Samus is viewed by other creatures, such as the ancient Chozo and the space pirates. The lore of the Chozo see Samus as a prophetic being, and data entries from the space pirates reveal that they see her as a fearsome opponent with technology so advanced they have been unable to duplicate it. Unfortunately the game's story is sparse. You don't learn the plot details until much later in the game, which means you are unsure why Samus is attacking a pirate ship at the start of the game. An in-depth story certainly would have made this a much more enjoyable experience, but it is nonetheless great as it is.
The graphics, the effects, the sound, the level design are all perfect.Read more ›
Its a blast!
I have been playing xbox 360 for years, but after playing Super Smash Bros Melee, I thought I would give metroid a try and see where Samus Aran came from. This story is first person shooter, and its all about exploring caves, obtaining upgrades, and saving the world from the evil "Space Pirates"
The ONLY thing I hate, is there isnt enough of save locations. However, that just makes you play more conservatively.
Great game though. Worth the buy:D
It's definitely not a game that you can buzz through in record time as some of the puzzles can prove to be rather challenging, not to mention some of the bosses. I've logged in just over 20 hours of play. It would be more if you want to complete 100% of the game, which is fairly challenging. If you get stuck, then look up a guide on gamefaqs.com and you'll be on your way. I know I got stuck a few times in Metroid Prime.

Not a good deal. The game played fine for a while until you got about 6% through the game. Then it shut off and said "trouble reading disc"Published 10 months ago by Jonathan Jay
