This eagerly-awaited fourth chapter begins in true Metroid style - as Samus's ship docks at a dangerous-looking derelict spaceship. But before long she'll be venturing onto the vast worlds of planet Tallon IV in search of those Metroid-stealing Space Pirates.

Metroid Prime combines the great gun-blasting gameplay you've come to expect from the Metroid series with incredible graphics that switch seamlessly between first-person and third-person perspectives.

And that's not all. Samus can select from two visor modes: combat and scan, to battle and explore her way through the dangerous world of Tallon IV.

Plus, Metroid Prime features many familiar weapons from Metroid history, like the Wave Beam and Freeze Beam, plus some all-new armaments.

But you'll need more than just an itchy trigger finger to win this battle. You must call on all of Samus's skills, including special suits that activate new abilities, and the ever-present Morph Ball, to search out every secret.

With an amazing mix of gun-blasting, puzzle-solving gameplay and state-of-the-art graphics, Metroid Prime will blow you away!
