Metroid Prime: Federation Force is a pretty bad game. This game has so many flaws it’s disappointing. The graphics in this game are horrendous even for a 3DS game. I know the 3DS is a handheld but a lot of 3DS games have nice graphics like The Legend of Zelda Link Between Worlds or Super Street Fighter IV. Good graphics on the 3ds can be done. The multiplayer can be fun for a while but it get’s extremely repetitive very quickly and the controls are hideous in this game well on the original 3DS. If you have the original 3DS I recommend you stay far, far away from this game.
Metroid Prime: Federation Force is a very generic game that lacks the dark atmosphere that the franchise is known for. The game is extremely disappointing in many different ways. The difficulty in the game is also very unbalanced, especially in single player. The single player campaign is awful and overall a bore fest. The only thing this game has going for it is it’s multiplayer and even that’s unimpressive. Blast Ball can be fun for a while but like this game, it’s repetitive after a while. I don’t mind spinoffs I really don’t but this game is spinoff done poorly. It’s one of the most disappointing Metroid games I have played to date and I have played A lot of Metroid Games. This game is the definition of disappointing.
There is no sense of exploration in this game and that’s disappointing. You don’t even collect powerups like you do in the main games. Don’t go into this game expecting a fantastic story. You’ll be disappointed. The single player mode is very short. Just like the story don’t go into this game expecting a lot of content. You’ll be disappointed. Also, don’t go into this game expecting it to be like Metroid 2. You’ll be disappointed. Honestly, though this game came out at the wrong time. It would have been fine if it came out a couple of years back. The game is just too dated. The boss fights are atrocious and are extremely easy to beat.
This game honestly is just a total disappointment. As much as I love Metroid I have to say this game is one of the worst Metroid games of all time. Heck, this game shouldn’t be called “Metroid”. It should have been a new IP. Overall I don’t recommend this game to anyone but if you want to play then, by all means, go ahead. Maybe you’ll enjoy this game because I certainly didn’t.
