A rare game that knows gamers are not stupid and we don't all have ADHD. Metroid Prime doesn't rely on breakneck speed, but on attention to detail. It's a game that allows you to relax and use your mind to play as opposed to reflexive button mashing. Accompanying it are great visuals and an awesome soundtrack, all with well-thought out environments and in-depth explanations of the creatures inhabiting the game's world. The genius of this game is unsurpassed - an example of how video games aren't made to reward people for thoughtless action, but patient thinking.

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.

I have never played Metroid before, so having this as the first game has left a good impression of the franchise.
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

The game works fine, to my relief. The description was absolutely accurate. Very small amount of scratches on the disk. My husband is overjoyed about finally being able to play his favorite game again. Thank you.

I managed to pick this game up for $4 at gamestop with the case and everything. Everything was in good condition and let me say it's the best 4 bucks I spent in my life. The game is incredible. It's nearly as good as Zelda, with its own elements as well. Do yourself a favor, and get this game, if the price is reasonable.

All I have to say is, go and pick this game up if you haven't already. You're missing out on lots! This game has great graphics, great sound, and great gameplay. I was impressed! I would say this is a MUST OWN for the Gamecube. It's worth every bit of your hard earned dollars! Check out its review at [...]
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.

Metroid Prime is the first metroid game that brought Samus in the 3-D realm. Metroid Prime takes place on the plant Known as Tallon IV, much like other metroid games you lose all your upgrades such as: suits, beams, visors and missiles, so you'll need to find them again. The different suits you can find range from the Varia Suit, Gravity Suit, and the Phazon Suits, the beam upgrades you can find come in 4 different flavors, you can aquire the Power beam, Ice beam, Wave beam, and the Plasma beam. You have to aquire the morphball to get anywhere in the game, you can even find morphball bombs and power bombs. In order to reach the final area of the game you need the beat 4 bosses, once you beat the bosses you need to find all 12 chozo artifacts (you'll probably need a guide in order to find them) once you all find the 12 artifacts you can finally access the final area. Once you beat the final boss, metroid prime, you have about 3 minutes to escape the planet. Certainly anybody who loves first person shooters, or exploration games will love this game.

Others have already pointed out how this game excels, so I won't reiterate what's been said. It's a great game, and worth every penny. As a longtime Metroid fan I feel it's worth noting that the original North American release is arguably the best version of the game, as later versions (i.e. Player's Choice and PAL variants) had many exploits and sequence breaks patched to make the game more linear and guide the player along the path the designers originally conceived. Since nonlinearity has been something of a hallmark of the 2D Metroid games, and does much to enhance replayability and exploration potential, despite these fundamentally being the same game you'll get more bang for the buck with the original release as shown.
