    Metroid Prime: Federation Force is not only the best FPS on the 3DS, but perhaps one of my favorite FPS games ever.

    Despite the undue hate it has been subjected to over the past year, Metroid Prime: Federation Force is a very impressive, polished and playable package - the only real grumble we have is that during online play the lack of voice chat can become maddening, and the game's built-in chat function is an inadequate substitute.

    Metroid Prime: Federation Force succeeds at carving out its own identity, but loses a few elements in translation. It’s still Metroid at its core but lacks the masterful execution that the series is known for.

    Metroid Prime: Federation Force is an ambitious production. It's a solid and fun co-op FPS, but is shamelessly multiplayer-oriented. Is it a true Metroid? We're not sure.

    It may not be the type of game nearly all Metroid fans desperately want, and it may go ignored due to that, but Metroid Prime: Federation Force is a great example of not only how to make FPS work on the 3DS, but how to successfully do co-operative mission-based multiplayer.

    Its biggest problem? The three planets are different enough (ice, desert, and gas), but the missions within aren't.

    There is a core idea here that could’ve worked, but Metroid Prime: Federation Force is nothing short of a disaster due to horribly thought out implementation and shoddy execution.

Metroid Prime: Federation Force can be fun with multiplayer, and a hell of a struggle on singleplayer. The simple, chibi character design compliments the game, runs smoothly online and offline, and the environments look nice, especially for a 3DS game. The downsides I found are there's no character development, repetitive missions and is a somewhat linear game compared to other Metroid games, being exploitative (But opinions on liking linearity and exploration are different from person to person) Give this game a chance, who knows, you may like it! I kinda did. Expand

    not a metroid game, cheap fps wannabe that has the metroid name to grab some money. Sad but true
