Quirkiness and impressive production values are no match for a tedious overworld, limited abilities, problematic controls, and too many blind jumps.

Decently fun. Graphically overambitious and technically problematic; I'm not enthused about most of the voice acting. Enjoyable characters, though.

Surprisingly comfortable controls; graphics didn't NEED to be chibi, but they're fine. Well polished but mostly average; better as a group activity.

For What It's Worth

Hi. I...uh...I haven't been around for a while, huh? I can explain that.I've been busy. Not necessarily any busier than usual, but my focus has been elsewhere. I recently moved, and now I'm close enough to friends that I might be busy any given weekn...

I'm really enjoying it so far. I just recently finished A Golden Wake (another game from the same publisher), and I like the blend of adventure game elements mixed with shooting. I was worried it was going to be hard to control, as many "arcade" segments of point and click adventures are, but I'm impressed with how well it handles.

Haha, just getting used to the 'social' side of this place, and adding fellow games with awesome collections, when I see them around.

And as you can see - with this nice, 2 months late reply - I'm not doing it right at all. XD

They should've made a 2D game instead of Prime Hunters.
Truth has been spoken.

I think the big mistake of Hunters is forcing the player to aim.
I understand that it haves the touchscreen to aim now, and i have to say that the controls really are precise. But like i said, this is for me at least, the thing that make this game not being a Metroid and be much more like a shooter.
In the Gamecube, you automatically lock on targets by holding L, which is a very good mechanic, since aiming was not the problem in 2D Metroids, so the challenge of the game is much more about avoiding damage.
In Hunters you do have do avoid damage of the enemy's incoming fire, but aim to some weak spot at the same time. And yeah, my hands hurts in some bosses while i played, because it demands precise movements on the screen... I think that in the boss battles, there SHOULD BE an option (in the touch screen maybe) that locks into the enemy weak point after you've scanned it, this would surely make things much more like a "real Metroid" to me.

Well... i COULD give Federation Force a chance, problem is a live in Brazil. And those things are too much taxed around here (original products) so i only buy a 3DS game if i'm wanting it so much, which of course it's not the case with Federation Force... To be honest, i really want to grab a copy (phisically or via Eshop) of Kid Icarus Uprising. That game looks freaking amazing!

In the end, i'm just hoping to get Metroid 5 or Metroid Prime 4 someday... It would surely revigorate the franchise. Of course... A GOOD Metroid 5 or Prime 4. I wish Sakamoto would woke up from this terrible script he wrote in Other M ...

The only Metroid game so far that i find it REALLY BAD is Other M.
So many wrong decisions in that game, holy fuck dude... What happend to Nintendo and Sakamoto anyway. Sakamoto wrote a very good narative and story in Metroid Fusion, but something got severely wrong in Other M, THAT'S FOR SURE.

And now we have Federation Force... What the fuck.
Metroid is almost dead... I just wished it haves a decent funeral (which unfortunatelly, it's NOT HAPPENING, since the last game that at least LOOKS good in the franchise is Corruption, a 2007 game).

Nintendo must be thinking that we don't like Metroid anymore. Which of course it's not the case, we just don't like those mediocrities or lazy games for such an great franchise with a bunch of top quality games. The last 2D game of the series (official) was Zero Mission in 2004 for god sake.
AM2R is as decent as Zero Mission, if you ask me.
It's the "Zero Mission" version of Return of Samus.

Even Prime Hunters is a good game... I mean it's a decent Action/Shooter game, just a bad Metroid - but it's still fun you know. But of course, too much behind the masterpiece that is Metroid Prime for the GameCube. I'm quite excited to play Echoes and Corruption!
No matter where you go, there you are.
