A super race, now long since extinct, has left relics of untold power and wisdom all over the place.

Bounty hunters from across the galaxy are out to get them to harness the power for themselves. Your mission is to intercept these relics before the ruthless bounty hunters do.

Essentially you, the representative of the Galactic Federation, must find your way through ancient ruins to get hold of all the secrets before other bounty hunters can. We found that gameplay is closely related to that of the first Metroid Prime game.

Although playing as a single playing is an experience in itself, it’s in multiplayer gameplay where Metroid Prime: Hunters makes the greatest impact. This game on DS is great as it makes fantastic use of the wireless capabilities of the DS, including utilising VOIP technologies using the built-in microphone.

The control scheme is excellent and there are a ton of multiplayer options.
Only line matches are limited to battle mode and the bosses often repeat.
