Fan Demo Of Metroid Prime 2D Released And It Looks Epic

Fan Demo Of Metroid Prime 2D Released And It Looks Epic

Metroid Prime, the fifth instalment of its franchise and the first of its following trilogy, is regarded as one of the best video games ever made. Ever. Released on Nintendo GameCube back in November 2002, the first-person adventure shooter became a generational title that has come with impeccable reviews from even the harshest of critics. 

Despite being nearly twenty years old, the title created by Retro Studios and Nintendo has a score of 97/100 on Metacritic, sat only behind Grand Theft Auto V and IV, Red Dead Redemption 2, Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 and 3, SoulCalibur, Perfect Dark, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Ocarina of Time.

Out of every game ever made, Metroid Prime sits among royalty, and a group of ambitious fans have now brought the game to PC. 

Only ever released on GameCube, and later the Nintendo Wii, Metroid fans have been awaiting a time they can prowl the sci-fi arenas on PC since its inception. Now it is possible (until Nintendo pull out the big C-word... copyright).

The fan-made Metroid Prime 2D has reimagined the title more towards the two-dimensional side-scrollers that it succeeded from, and has been 17 years in the making.

The original title was 3D, hence the focus on the dimensions in the title. The fans/developers' decision to make it 2D was out of simplicity, all the while maintaining the key aspects of the game.

Taking to a blog post they wrote, "Instead of copying the source material exactly, we are instead focused on taking the core concepts, translating those, and then implementing them in a logical 2D solution."

"By doing this we allow ourselves to focus on building a good game first and foremost, and then using that as a base on which to create a familiar experience, rather than constraining ourselves to trying to implement 3D ideas in 2D space."

The game which now focuses on strategy, timing, and logistics makes for a truly fascinating playthrough, adapting a timeless classic into a game enjoyed from the comforts of a keyboard.
