What is Metroid Prime Remastered?

Metroid Prime Remastered is a souped-up version of a game that originally came out on GameCube in 2002. This version has revamped dual-stick controls, but old-school gamers can opt to play with controls that mimic the non-dual-stick feel of the original if they so choose.

At its original launch, Metroid Prime was yet another instance of a classic 2D Nintendo series making its way to 3D in a way that was better than anyone could have reasonably hoped. All the hallmarks of the side-scrolling Metroids are here, including environmental puzzle solving, massive boss fights, and more — and it worked incredibly well in 3D.
