Metroid Prime 2 is a first person shooter without all the shooting; even though your view is from first person, Metroid Prime 2 is nothing like a traditional run and shoot FPS. The main goal of the game is to explore the massive planet called "Aether". In the game you solve puzzles, and explore massive areas filled with secrets (you do have fights with enemies often). In the game there are tons of hidden areas and other cool secrets. And at long last, Metroid is finally back to the way it should be.

Game Play: 10/10
Metroid Prime 2 is easily one of the greatest games of all time! Right from the start the game has a great lonely / eerie feel that is unlike any other game around (other than Super Metroid of course). In the game you explore a massive planet called "Aether", and through the course of the game you will learn the past of a doomed planet and collect many power ups and items along the way. Metroid Prime 2 is loaded with tons of upgrades and secrets that can take many months to find. Plus the control set up is unique and well though out, there are no duel analogue controls, but rather the controls are still very easy to learn. Your enemy's are tough but your far tougher; in the game you can lock on to your enemy's, and this makes for an easy to learn and easy to use control scheme. During the game you will travel back and fourth from "light Aether" and "dark Aether", to solve puzzles and find secrets. The bosses are few, but when you encounter one be prepared for a very tough fight. The bosses are cool, extremely powerful, and best of all, fun to fight. The new "ammo" system is simple to get used to, killing enemy's with the "Dark Beam" gives you "Light Beam ammo", killing enemies with the "Light Beam" gives you "Dark Beam ammo". Plus the new upgrades, Samus (the girl you play as) gets are very cool and handy. Metroid Prime 2 is an amazing game that no one should pass up.

Multi Player Game Play: 10/10
Amazingly Metroid Prime 2's multi player is very fun. Up to four players can duke it out in one of two game modes. The first is a death match, with the first to achieve a certain number of kills being crowned the winner. You and everyone else start with only the "power beam", and in the levels you can find items such as super missile, the Light Beam, the Dark Beam, and other weapons. Plus you can also find special upgrades such as "Invisibility", or the "Death Ball" (the Death Ball is just what it sounds like). The fighting is intense and requires much focus to win. You can jump side to side, shoot, and avoid by using the "Morph Ball". The other mode of play is "bounty hunter", where you and your friends (or foes) try to find and collect "bounty coins", with the catch being that to make bounty coins appear you must kill someone. This all makes for a very fun multi player mode that is much better than most people where expected.

Graphics: 10/10
Metroid Prime 2 is ULTRA smooth, it's FPS (Frames per Second) is extremely high. Oddly, it's smoother that your eyes normally see (most peoples eyes tend to jerk around and make things blurry when they look around at stuff). Though the areas are fake looking (which is done on purpose), the extremely high frames per second makes Metroid Prime 2 have a feel of realism that even games like Halo 2 could never achieve. The areas are done very uniquely, they don't look like they where Cel Shaded, but they don't look real either. This odd graphics engine and the huge interconnecting world alone make Metroid Prime 2 feel more like a Metroid game instead of just another first person shooter. Over all Metroid Prime 2 has amazing graphics that are very hard to find in any game.

Sound: 10/10
Metroid has always been known for its creepy yet very cool music, and Metroid Prime 2 is no exception to this standard. And best of all the music in Metroid Prime 2 is good enough to listen to in the car while making a trip. Plus the music is very clear and crisp, and the sound effects are great. You can hear every little detail around you, close and far. You can hear the crunching of the dirt under your feet, and even the sound of the wind blowing in the distance. The music and sound effects of Metroid Prime 2 are something to behold, Metroid Prime 2 has amazing sound effects and music.

Replay Value: 10/10
Metroid Prime 2 is a game that you can play over and over and not get bored. The game is so massive that after exploring one part of the game and return to another you will almost feel as if you've never been there, or were there a very long time ago. There are also a huge amount of hidden upgrades and secrets you can find even after you

The game is so massive that after exploring one part of the game and return to another you will almost feel as if you've never been there, or were there a very long time ago. There are also a huge amount of hidden upgrades and secrets you can find even after you’ve beaten the game. Plus there are some things that you can only "scan" once (like bosses), and if you miss that one chance you must play through the game again, and if you then miss a different enemy that can only be scanned once you must play through again. So anyone who wants to find and scan everything must play through the game more than once (this can take months). All of this means that you could be playing for months on end, and so Metroid Prime 2 has extremely high replay value. Overveiw: 10/10 Metroid Prime 2 is an amazing game. Many people have waited for many years for a game like Super Metroid, finally that wait is over. Metroid Prime 2 is an amazing master piece that is unmatched by any Next-Gen game. The areas are put together flawlessly, the enemies are very cool and the bosses are few but amazing. And there are tons of new upgrades and secrets that are sure to make any Metroid fan happy. The new multiplayer mode is amazingly fun and is a great new addition to an already great game. And the Graphics are simply amazing. The game is ULTRA smooth and never skips, plus the areas are clear and well put together. Plus the sound is fantastic, it too is very clear and the music is great, there's a good bit of "classic Metroid music" and lots of great new songs that help make for a great feel, and the sound effects are great. You can here every little detail from the wind in the distance to your foot steps echoing in metal buildings. Everything about Metroid Prime 2 is almost flawless, I give Metroid Prime 2 for the Nintendo Game Cube a perfect ten out of ten!
