Continuing my celebration of Metroid's 30th anniversary, we delve into the troubled planet of Aether and the story of its doomed inhabitants, the highly intelligent Luminoth . This is an in-depth review of Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, the highly anticipated sequel to Retro's masterpiece Metroid Prime. Enjoy!
Side note: this is a review of the single player only. I wasn't able to play the multiplayer long enough to form any kind of decent opinion, but my general thoughts on it are that it's a pretty mediocre, inoffensive-at-worst multiplayer mode. I'm sure it has its merits, but for me personally, it wasn't fleshed out enough to inspire me to play it for more than 20 minutes or so. My apologies if you feel this takes something away from the review.
