    To match such thrill-a-minute environments, the level design, puzzles, and boss fights are all insanely original.

    Nothing comes close to the feeling you get when the Eznite shuts down your systems for the first time and you have to reboot.
  3. It's not dramatically different from the original but, man, is it fun. Metroid Prime 2: Echoes is a title every GameCube owning shooter fan should have.
  4. The Dark Aether parts of the game added quite a bit of backtracking and mapping which really took me out of the experience more than I'd have liked. Still, the game is better than almost any other released this year, so it's definitely worth picking up.
  5. The great graphics, excellent gameplay and intriguing story line will have gamers glued to their GameCube for hours.
  6. Features a lot more action, is much more story driven, has better graphics and sound, and the game is a lot harder than its predecessor was.
  7. The constant scanning slows down the game, and the generic soundtrack does little to create any drama. But Metroid fans just want to play as Samus. And what's thrilling for those folks is the multiplayer action.

    The multiplayer is, unfortunately, the games biggest flaw. The autoaim makes the task of killing someone far too easy. Which, by the way is The multiplayer is, unfortunately, the games biggest flaw. The autoaim makes the task of killing someone far too easy. Which, by the way is horribly annoying. However, the main game... is unbelievably good. The atmosphere is without equal. The world you have to explore is just so incredibly well designed that you can spend hours wandering the lush forests or the dry arid lands looking for those last few items. The balance of difficulty might put some people off, but if you can overcome the harder bosses you will find a game that gives you an excellent single player experience. Expand

I think that that is REALLY fair. Go play Animal Crossing or something... Best game for GC right now. PERIOD. Expand

If your into si-fi you must buy this game. This woman kick some butt! The story itself is creative and the inclusion of two different worlds, dark and light, and the added mystery of Dark Samus make this story stand out . Expand

    While not as good as Metroid Prime, the improved graphics, the addition of new suits and powerups, as well as the light and dark world, makesWhile not as good as Metroid Prime, the improved graphics, the addition of new suits and powerups, as well as the light and dark world, makes this a very compelling experience that everyone should play. Lore is as good as always, bosses are very fun to kill, and the general feel of the game is very polished. And also, hard difficulty really means hard. Really. Also features multiplayer, but it's not very good to be honest. That would be the con of the game. 9/10. Expand
