Metroid Prime: Hunters (DS)

 

Given how long the Nintendo DS has been available, it's hard to believe that Metroid Prime: Hunters was one of the first games shown off when the system was first introduced. Some of you early adopters may remember getting a brief demo level of the...

Metroid Prime: Hunters - DS review at Thunderbolt Games

 

The first FPS game I played on the Nintendo DS was Peter Jackon's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie (or some such), and it was just dire. I knew not to expect much, graphically, from the DS even though MKDS blew me away, but surely they could...

The handheld first person shooter market is decidedly thin. Unless you're up for a game of SOCOM with one analog 'stick' or are hankering for a 16 player game of Faceball, you're going to come up short. Nintendo thinks they have found the answer to all...

Metroid Prime Hunters explodes onto the DS, at long last. The wait was well worth it—this game is the indisputable killer-app of the handheld, and one of the most involving games on the market today. As a game it defies classification, as both a...

Metroid Prime: Hunters on Nintendo DS

 

Hunt or the Hunted

Considering this game is on a handheld system that really wasn’t designed for intense 3D games, Hunters is a worthy purchase. This game has the most extensive multiplayer mode on the DS yet, but it still lacks features that everyone wants such as VOIP...

It's safe to say that Metroid Prime Hunters marks the next-level in gaming on the Nintendo DS... the Halo of portable systems.

It's safe to say that Metroid Prime Hunters marks the next-level in gaming on the Nintendo DS. As happens in all new game system lifecycles, NDS games have clearly entered that treasured "second generation," where developers have mastered the new...

Metroid Prime Hunters

 

Perhaps one of the most well-known and widely anticipated titles for the Nintendo DS, players first got a glimpse of Metroid Prime: Hunters from a demo that came included with the original system, and they've been waiting for it ever since. It was...

Great presentation ; Well-rounded multiplayer ; Online play, with voice chat

Painful default controls ; Unnatural alternate controls ; A little too short and easy

This game is everything we’ve been waiting for on the Nintendo DS and it was a long wait, at that: over two years. But, overall, I really think it was worth it – with Metroid Prime: Hunters, Nintendo delivers on all it's promised (once they themselves...

Son of Samus.

High-class design; Badass new bounty hunters; Loads of good multiplayer; Control is very fluid

Since the release of the Nintendo DS gamers have been anticipating the DS-exclusive, Metroid Prime: Hunters. Featuring a funky touch-screen control style, Metroid-classic adventure gaming and a robust online multiplayer mode, Hunters might just be all...

one of the best looking games on the DS, solid gameplay, intense multiplayer

controls take some getting used to, recycled bosses

Metroid Prime: Hunters is the game to have on the Nintendo DS right now. Metroid fans, especially those of the Prime series, will love it and FPS fans are going to dig the awesome online play. It looks good, sounds good, and though the controls can...

Metroid Prime: Hunters

 

Hunters is a fantastic multiplayer FPS, but we're still waiting for the first Metroid game on DS.

Fast, robust, addictive online play with voice chat ; Great local wireless modes ; Accurate touch controls ; Amazing graphics

Lame single-player mode ; Carpal tunnel syndrome ; Online bugs (should go away soon)

Last I heard, multiplayer only needed to be fun, it didn't have to fit in with any "story"...

Product Specifications

Who is the Galaxy's most elite bounty hunter? Before Metroid Prime Hunters, the answer was easy. Now that six other ferocious bounty hunters have gathered to challenge Samus, the title is up for grabs. Metroid Prime Hunters delivers the most intense first-person multiplayer action ever experienced on a hand-held system, and with Nintendo Wi-Fi connection you can test your skills against players from around the world. From its stunning graphics to its super-smooth gameplay, Metroid Prime Hunters showcases the awesome power of Nintendo DS. The Adventure mode is a fun diversion, but it
