    metroid prime is a computer game made by Retro Studios and Nintendo for the Nintendo GameCube, it was released in North America on November 17th, 2002.
    Its the first 3D game in the Metroid series, the fifth main installment, and is classified by Nintendo as a first-person adventure rather than a first-person shooter, due to the large exploration component of the game and its precedence over combat. Metroid Prime, along with the Game Boy Advance game Metroid Fusion that was released alongside it on the same day in North America, marked the return of the Metroid series after eight years – the last game in the franchise had been the 1994 Super Metroid.

    Metroid Prime is the first of the three part Prime storyline, which takes place between the original Metroid and Metroid II: Return of Samus.
    Like previous games in the series, Metroid Prime has a science fiction setting, in which players control the bounty hunter Samus Aran.
    The story follows Samus as she battles the Space Pirates and their biological experiments on the planet Tallon IV.
    The game was a collaborative effort between Retro's staff in Austin, Texas and Japanese Nintendo employees, including producer Shigeru Miyamoto, who was the one who suggested the project after visiting Retro's headquarters in 2000. Despite initial backlash from fans due to the first-person perspective the game was released to both universal acclaim and commercial success, selling more than a million units in North America alone.

    Its won a number of Game of the Year awards, but it is also considered by many critics and gamers to be one of the greatest video games ever made and remains one of the highest-rated games on Metacritic In 2009, an enhanced version was released for Wiias a standalone game in Japan and as part of Metroid Prime: Trilogy internationally.

    its the first in a trilogy of games based around phazon a poison that has corrupted tallon iv the planet where this game is set.
    areas include phendrana drifts,magmoor caverns, tallon overworld,phazon mines.

    Re: metroid prime.(2002)

    Easily the best Metroid game by far. The music from House always reminds me of Metroid Prime. It's probably my favourite NGC by far.

    It's also one of the few games farmed out from a Japanese company that actually turned out excellent. I wish I could say that for all the other titles the Japanese companies passed the buck on.

      Retro decided to make the game different from its predecessor by adding more focus on storyline and including new gameplay elements. Nintendo launched a viral marketing campaign to promote the game that included several websites written as if taking place in the Metroid universe. Echoes' single player mode and graphics were praised by critics, while its steep difficulty level and multiplayer components were met less positively.

      compared to MP1 this game has a lot less beam weapons.

      these beams can only open doors these beams are for.
      light for the white doors.
      the dark beam for dark purple doors and the annihilator beam mix iof the two for doors that are both black and white.

It was released in North America and Europe in 2007, and in Japan the following year.
