Description

Twenty or so minutes of one of the best games I ever played. Completing my favourite Nintendo franchise trilogy along with F-Zero and Star Fox, Metroid remains one of the finest sci-fi playable experiences ever made. Retro took on a huge risk in trying to expand the Metroid universe into the third dimension but like most I was glad to find that they fully succeeded. Don't think it was easy for me to jump in, when this came out I was playing only SNES, Megadrive and Game Boy Advance. I had given up on "next gen" and was happy to game away the rest of my life in 16 bit 2D graphics. Fortunately a good friend of mine insisted I play this, or at least watch him play while reviews from the likes of EDGE keep me interested but not fully convinced. When I did get my GameCube in the early days of 2004, this was one of my priorities. When I finally did, I sat down, put the disc in the tray and completing "Metroid Prime" became my only goal outside college life. Don't let the fact that this game is 12 years old, it remains a masterpiece on all account and if you are able to track down the Wii's "Metroid Prime Trilogy" even better. Just make sure you don't let this pass you by. Enjoy the game's eerie prologue!
