Something sinister lurks in the depths of planet Tallon IV.
Interstellar bounty hunter Samus Aran is the only one who
can destroy this evil. But first it must be found...
the first Metroid game for the GameCube, but the fourth
in the series. The
graphics are a vast improvement on previous instalments -
try squashing a bug at close quarters and watch as you are
covered in its innards. The attention to detail on Samus's
visor is also impressive (it mists up, ices up and, as mentioned
before, gets covered in goo depending on the conditions).
not an easy game - so novice gamers might be better advised
to beef up on their gameplay first on games like Halo.
But, once you get used to the gameplay, it becomes fairly
simple to get to grips with.
biggest sore point is getting used to the controls - they
are a pain to begin with. But, it's worth persevering with
because once mastered you'll soon see what everyone is raving
about. And the music and sound effects could have been a lot
better - the music is pretty weak to be honest.
it is the number of upgrade weapons, the gaming area and the
overall feel of the game that make this a winner.
of the best GameCube games available - Metroid fans
will not be disappointed.
