Raised by an ancient alien race, Samus is the galaxy's top bounty hunter, utilising her advanced Varia suit to give her near super-human powers and using an arm mounted cannon to blast her way past any opposition. Now Samus has been hired by the Galactic Federation to recover powerful alien artefacts before deadly bounty hunters get their hands on them. In space there's no law and no back up, Samus will have to use all of her skills to return alive.

Featuring some of the most advanced 3D graphics for a hand-held system, playing Metroid Prime: Hunters brings you the great graphics seen in Metroid Prime on Nintendo GameCube with the added benefit of it being on a portable handheld system. The vast single-player mode in Metroid Prime: Hunters is among one of the most exciting seen on a hand-held console to date and the game can also proudly claim to be the first multiplayer first person shooter to grace a hand-held system. While playing, the fast-paced seamless levels are displayed with perfect clarity on the top Nintendo DS screen, while a map and radar showing enemy locations is visible on the bottom.

The gameplay possibilities that the Nintendo DS can offer really allows Metroid Prime: Hunters to stand out from the rest. Players use the Nintendo DS d-pad to walk around while the stylus is used to look about the area and aim their weapon, much like a PC based First Person Shooter. The stylus control allows players to turn and target with pinpoint accuracy. Icons strategically placed on the touch-screen also allow players to switch weapons and convert Samus into her Morph Ball form with ease.

Metroid Prime: Hunters features numerous online and offline multiplayer modes, allowing players to compete locally with friends using the Nintendo DS wireless link and then battle people across the globe thanks to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service.
  • A ferocious race, now extinct, has left behind relics of its once-powerful warrior culture. Now bounty hunters from across the galaxy race to claim these relics in hopes of harnessing their power for themselves.
  • Battle online via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection or with friends over local wireless.
  • Uncover the mystery behind the Hunters quest for ultimate power in the action-packed single-player mode.

This is the best game on the Nintendo DS, for sure.

For a handheld the graphics are equal to that of a Playstation. The full 3D levels, characters and interfaces are insane. I love this game and you will never be bored.

When you are not playing the main story game you can play tons of minigame battles.

You have 24 levels, 6 modes, 6 completely different characters and abilites and tons of weaponry. This is a great buy, and the Wireless and Wi-Fi features are brilliant.

The game runs smoothly but occasionally slows down if there are alot of explosions or movement on the screen at once...but this only ever occurs in multi-payer modes when there are more than two players at once and alot of action going on.

Highly recommend!

This is a good game for the DS, the graphics are excellent in DS terms and a classic Metroid adventure from the 2D games transfered into 3D is quite exciting.
The best part of this game is the multiplayer which is worth buying the game for. With Wi-Fi you can just spin around in morph ball mode but the best is owning download play Samus with the Imperialist.

Certainly a good game, but starts to get a bit repetitive towards the end. A wide variation in weapons and scenery. Quite hard at some places, boss's can just just out of the air at you which can/will catch you off-guard.

So, good game, and if you for some random reason don't have it yet, get it!

Although handheld, this game manages to be just as scary as its predecessors on the gamecube. An example is when it manges to set the pace with its slow eerie music, then sudddenly the panic music kicks in when you have to fight a baddy. I wasnt sure how they would manage to get in all of the features of metroid such as the multiple gun choices but the design of the controls are very good. This game has hours of fun and the novelty of the stylus control still hasn't worn out for me. A word of warning though, at first the controls are very hard to handle and you may be tempted to switch to d pad mode but DONT!! Stick with it and you'll find the controls are easier, more fun and more accurate. The only downside of this game is that all the levels do seem a bit linear and the fact that they keep using old bosses feels lazy but dont let that hold you back if you are thinking of buying it as its one of the best ds games out there at the minute. I have also heard the multiplayer is excellent and even better than adventure mode though I haven't checked it out yet.

 Want a Doom type game with brains on your DS this is it.

The 3D graphics on Metriod Prime: Hunters are very good and the gameplay even better. I found this to be hardest game I own so far on the DS so be warned. The music in this game creates a great atmosphere as you go hunting for alien life forms. Using the DS pen when you turn yourself into a ball dropping bombs is great fun. Another great DS game made by Nintendo
