Did This Game Tickle Your Fancy?

Original Release Date: 15/11/2004

Platforms: Gamecube, Wii, Wii U.






Metroid Prime 2 Echoes is the black sheep of the Prime trilogy. It’s by far the most different out of all three entries and it’s received the most criticism over the years.

Echoes is renown for its brutal and uncompromising difficulty. If you enjoyed Prime 1 but thought it could use a bit more bite, then Prime 2 is definitely up your alley.

The dual dimensions of Aether provide lots of complex and labyrinthine ways to get lost, and features some of the best and brutal boss fights in series history.

You can pick up a copy of Metroid Prime Trilogy on the Wii U Eshop quite cheap if you want to experience this forgotten classic. The original Gamecube release is riddled with difficulty spikes so pick it up on Wii U or the Wii retail release if you can.

As a aside, ignore the multiplayer mode. If you want an enjoyable multiplayer Metroid consider picking up Metroid Prime Hunters. (Or even the similarly divisive Metroid Prime Federation Force)
