4.0 out of 5 stars The best FPS on a handheld., 20 April 2006
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Metroid Prime Hunters (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
I bought this game a couple days ago, and after getting familiar with it, I can finally write a review.

Graphics - Let's face it, the ds isn't known for it's graphical quality, especially when it comes to 3D. But these graphics are great. They aren't as good as todays standard consoles, but I don't recall any N64 or Playstation game looking this good.Best out there right now for the DS so I give it a 5/5.

Control - Control with the stylus takes a while to get used to, but once you get the hang of it it's a lot like using the mouse for a computer. If your left handed don't worry because they have a special setting made special for you guys. If you still can't get use to the stylus then you can use the buttons for aiming. 4.5/5

Sound - If you've heard the music from the original metroid prime then you've heard the music to this game. Sometimes can be very intense to build up suspense of what's going to happen. 4/5

Replay Value - Just like the other metroid prime games, you have a log book. Playing through the first time, you can ignore this, but filling it up to 100% can be a challenge. You also have energy and missle expansions. Single Player mode is pretty short though.

As for the Online, this is an excellent feature. There's a battle mode and you can chose from any of the character's you have beaten. This can provide for hours of fun. You can also create friends and rivals who you can compete with in 7 different forms of battle. You can also text and voice chat with your friends which was unbelievably clear. I could understand every word when I tried this. (with Online) 5/5

Fun Quality - I personally got bored with the previous metroid prime games with the gamecube, but for some reason this one is different. Maybe it's the online maybe it's the two screens and touch screen, I don't know, but i think what it is is that it's more action orientated and I love action. 5/5

Buy or Not - I haven't always liked shooter games like this, but I really enjoyed this one. I would reccomend to BUY.

Overall Score 4.7 / 5 (9.4/10)
