Video: Really Freakin’ Clever – Metroid Prime


Joshua M. has posted a new video looking back at the Space Pirate Frigate prologue to Metroid Prime. In the video, we are taken aback to how Prime 1’s prologue level was an inventive and subtle way to teach the player the rules and controls as they become, in essence, Samus Aran. At eight minutes long, the video may not surprise many hardcore Metroid fans with new information, but it brings forward what made the first 10-plus minutes of Metroid Prime so great.
