There aren't too many times when I'd call a video game beautiful, but this is one of them. It's like a work of art that you can explore. Even though it's a bit old now, it's still worth playing.

I bought this game as part of a package deal when I bought my Gamecube from Amazon.

About this video game

Wiki

Xbox editor Mike Fehlauer said this game looks likeHalo, and I think he meant it as a compliment. Most of the game is played in the first-person view through Samus's visor, which offers both heads-up display and scanner abilities, but Samus can also roll up into a ball to negotiate tight spots. What's really cool is that the game shifts to a third-person trailing perspective in this mode, which helps refresh the gameplay.Metroid Primehas some original weapons, such as the grapple beam, wave beam, and freeze beam, and the Big N is promising loads of others, too. The game looked great at the show, but we didn't have enough time to really get used to the controls.--Porter B. Hall
