I recently had a chance to preview in it a
video demo at Target, I am amazed at what Retro Studios
Inc has crafted. Metroid Prime is looking to be Nintendo
greatest game in a long time, if not the greatest. The
demo has kick ass visuals, way better than those seen
in Star Fox Adventures. What most amazing is the art
style, there's so much stuff. Broken pipes spewing steam,
to the holographic corridor hallway, alien creature locked
in glass boxes. The lighting effect is astonishing, to the
detail of Samus's reflection on her combat visor. Visual
aside, if I had a chance to play it, I would've had
praised it as much the press are raving over it. Newcomer
to the series will be awed by the impressive graphics,
while old school will feel right at home with the latest
chapter in the Metroid saga. There is shooting, but the
emphasis of the series about exploration is there, you'll
spend a lot of time scanning and exploring rooms.
Sometimes, you'd explored a long time without the need of pulling the trigger.

Metroid Prime is definitely the game of the year to watch.
All I got to say is, if you own a Game Cube and don't buy this,
you must be living under a cave. Non Game Cube should pick
this up with a Game Cube. Metroid Prime is just too good
to passed up. I hadn't been this excited about a game
since Zelda Ocarina of Time over four years ago. Metroid
like Zelda, transformation to 3 dimensional is perfectly executed.

My God!!! It's like a Dream!!!
And after all this years waiting for a new Metroid game I just can't wait. This will surely be the best game of 2002.

Sorry Bill, I forgot to ask you: do you have any idea how long this game will be, I'm kinda worried about that????

Nintendo didn't say how long. What they did say is this, the demo they showed earlier this year at E3 was accountable for less than 10% of the game final game. I will take a wild guess, this game will take anywhere from 20 - 30 hours to completed. Metroid Prime will also linked up with Metroid Fusion. For what? Nintendo didn't say, yet.

I still dont like that they made the game into a FPS. Screw it.

Ill get the GBA Metroid Fusion instead.

20 - 30 hours? I wish you're right Bill.

Seeing Metroid prime was like ..wow ..this game will rock ..but than i found out it will be about 75% (perhaps more) in the FPS mode ...and that kinda put me in a difficult situation ...Than i decided i'll get Metroid fusion on the GBA but than Nintendo said you can connect Metroid fusion with Metroid prime ..so again i was in a difficult situation .i'm still not sure if i'll buy Metroid prime ..But if i do it will be the first FPS i'm gonna play from the beginning till the end!

If it makes you feel better and helps you go to bed at night.. without wetting your pants (yeah- I heard about that).. you can call it an FPA instead.

I want this game too.

To be totally honest I never liked the old Metroid games. They just never clicked with me. However, Metroid Prime looks great.
