I'm with both you guys, the Metroid Prime series is one of my favorite things in the world.Samtemdo8 said:In my case Prime 2 is the stronger of the Prime Sequals.CaitSeith said:For the best Metroid Prime, I'm split between the 2 and 3 (each has their own strengths and failures). In the main series, I go for Super Metroid. Metroid Fusion is alright, but it was a little too linear until near the end.
It's funny, I'm really not sure why though, I don't play them really all that much but they just... stick with me, I don't know.
As long as I'm here, my favorite's the first Prime with Echoes and Corruption chasing second and third respectively, it's a real close race though, like you said, they have their strengths and weaknesses.
Most fans would say Echoes is the weakest and honestly I don't blame them. I don't usually defend it because the weakest of the Prime series is still a pretty darn high bar but I personally think Echoes has the strongest atmosphere. Granted, you have a lot of time to stop and smell the roses while you're hiding under those light-umbrellas but jokes aside, I think Dark Aether's art style and hostile atmosphere and use of ambience instead of music if freaking enrapturing.
