Best Metroid Prime game yet!
Metroid Prime 2: Echoes review
1st March 2011
Metroid Prime 2 is fantastic and it is better than the first one in so many ways that i recommend you start with this rather than the first one if you are new to the series.
Everything is so well thought out which really adds to the atmosphere and feeling of being submerged in an alien world.
Firstly the visuals are amazing, i had so many 'wow awesome' moments from how rich the look of each different area was.
They have got really creative with the monsters too and they are very different for each area so you won't get tired of them like the endless space pirate and metroid fights in Metroid Prime 1. One of my favourite bosses ever is in this game too (Quadraxis) such an inventive fight!
The game is long at 30hours+ however there isn't much trekking back and forth which was something that tired me about MP1.
The new visor gun and movement systems you collect really enhance the adventure too and they are very well implemented in MP2, they look great, are fun to use and keep you on your toes.
