    "The transition to 3D and a first-person perspective was a bold move for the franchise. There was some slight adjustment as is expected but overall, the game delivered. This was an instant classic and a game that every gamecube should have had in their collection."

    "This sort of one-shot game is a good starting point for anyone interested in this series. The difficulty has been dialed down compared to other games in the series but it was an enjoyable game if not, a little short."

    "What makes the Metroid Prime games so great is that they all that was great and fun from past games and designs them with modern sensibilities and a new perspective. It really does feel like playing an old metroid, just in 3D and in first-person."

    "It's hard to find anything really bad about this game. This is one the best metroid game on the Game Boy Advance and continues the 2D design and gameplay from previous games. it polishes and refines what's already in place to provide some of the best 2D platforming experiences on the Game Boy Advance.

    "The metroid experience is perfectly carried over to a new installment of the prime series but what really sets it apart is how it utilized the Wii's unique control system to introduce some new interesting and fun gameplay mechanics. This is one of the best metroid games and one of the best that the Wii had to offer."

    "The game that started it all was unforgiving. It never gave hints or help in-game. It was a game where you felt the isolation and that you had to figure everything out for yourself. Succeeding releases were more forgiving and coherent but it's still nice to experience the first ever game of this popular franchise."
