liquidsol's Metroid Prime (GameCube) review

The most immersive game on the gamecube

I think the Metroid Prime series is all about immersion. When you start playing this game, you forget where you are, you explore, you uncover new things, and it is quite simply the best gaming experience there is on the Gamecube, or any other console.
You go through the world, in first person mode, exploring. This game is all about exploration. You will feel a real sense of accomplishment, when you find new items, new power ups. These will allow you to explore other parts of the world.
The graphics are flawless. Every room in the game has so many graphical details. You will try to find areas where the texture or graphical elements are repeated, but it's almost impossible. Excellent.
The music and sound is also top notch. The soundtrack really sets the mood for every world that you are in.
There are so many items and things to uncover, that you may feel overwhelmed. That is a good thing though, because as soon as you enter the world, you will feel a real sense of isolation. That combined with everthing else is the driving force that will make you want to play this game from start to finish, wishing it would never end. Perfect. I can't think of any other game that deserves a 10. Turn down the lights, pop this game in, and enter its world, you won't be sorry you did.
