5.0 out of 5 stars Two worlds, twice the fun..., 29 May 2005
This review is from: Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (GameCube) (Video Game)
Metroid Pime 2: Echoes is a direct sequel to Metroid Prime. many who have played 'Prime hailed it as a Masterpiece, and it seems that old retro studios have done it again.
Metroid Pime 2: Echoes follows Samus once again in a FPS, this time on the mysterious planet Aether. Samus, sent there by the Federation, is investigating the mysterious disappearance of a squad of soilders stranded there. Things get bigger when Smus is attacked by a Mysterious entity bearing remarkable resemblance to herself, losing a lot of her powerful abilities, another excuse for the collect-as-you-go-style of Metroid.
The situation quickly escalates in intesity as Samus meets a Luminoth, the guardian of a temple who tells her of their war with the shadow creatures, the Ing. The Luminoth weer nearly wiped out by the Ing and its up to our Samus to save the day.
'Prime 2 revovles around the idea of two worlds; a Light and Dark one. Metroid games ha always had puzzles; 'Prime 2's centres around going between two dimensions. The Dark world is a twisted version of the light world, and Samus will take damage from it's foul atmosphere. What you do in on world directly affects the other, this plays an important part in progressing through the game.
A big emphasis on 'Prime 2 is the 4 main bosses; this I won't spoil, but each one of them guards a really cool upgrade. Each one of them ranges from about 8 times the size of Samus to about 20 times. Big.
Most of Samus' abilities are back, namely the Scan Visor, and some other intesting windows on the world in addition. What sets Metroid Prime games apart from others is the incredible amount of rich detail you can gather from almost anywhere in the environment. You can also store data in Samus' improved databank to read later.
Metroid 'Prime will definately please anyone who played the original 'Prime. It is very much like Halo 1+2 in the sense that the second version is very similar to the first, only with more gloss. Very worth buying.
