 Metroid Prime (cube: 2002): Reviews
Metroid Prime stands up not only as the most original, diverse and simply awe-inspiring game on the Gamecube, but as one of the five best videogames I have ever played.
This is not the Metroid you may remember, but this is the best game to come along on any platform in a long time.
While Metroid Prime engages on no level other than gameplay, that gameplay is so perfectly tuned and refined, so continuously evolving and clever that you'll keep playing and playing, even when you're frustrated, even when you're honestly just a little bored with the back-tracking, and even though you don't care about the character or story.

 IGN: Metroid (Classic NES Series) Review
Metroid is the first outing of our heroine bounty hunter Samus, though it's a secret in the first game that she's a girl.
True to the Metroid spirit, there are extras that can be discovered along the way which will make Samus much more powerful, but it's knowing where they are that makes the adventure that much harder.
NES Metroid is a true Nintendo classic and is still a great game, but it's just absolutely mind-boggling why the company opted to bring this one out instead of something in the company's library that hasn't shown its head in years.

 GameSpy: Metroid Fusion Review
While the GameCube's Metroid Prime happens before Super Metroid, Metroid Fusion is effectively its sequel.
Things quickly turn sour when Samus is attacked by a new organism, later dubbed the "X." It infects her power suit and nearly kills her, and she is only saved through invasive surgery and a Metroid-derived vaccine.
With a weary sigh (or so I imagine), she accepts the Federation's assignment to infiltrate the now-derelict station, search for survivors, and put an end to the apparent X infestation.

The game that started the Metroid series was released in August 1986 and follows Samus Aran's first encounter with the deadly Metroids.
For the next two metroids I again had a strat planed and practiced to set up a two metroids for five missiles, but messed up because I was so nervous and was again lucky not to get drained.
