Rolling into a ball, Samus is perfectly suited to a pinball spin-off, not to mention how the vertically dual screened NDS is too. Much more than a stop gap while waiting for next year's Metroid Prime Hunters, with realistic physics and the ability to nudge the table in any direction via the touch screen, this is a great pinball title. The Metroid license however takes it all so much further, and the tables perfectly match areas you'll recognize from Metroid Prime. Fuse Games have done a stunning job with the graphics, right down to the occasional rain in the Tallon overworld table. The CD quality music is some of the best ever to come out of the NDS too, and there's more voice samples here than in all of Metroid Prime for GameCube!
The game sets a new record for multi-player fun on the NDS too, letting up to 8 people play over the wireless, with just one copy of the game! Multi Mission mode on the other hand, lets you play through and unlock new tables on your own, of which you can return to anytime in single mission mode and aim for a new high score. Enemies and bosses from Metroid Prime are also present, and in some of the thirteen mini-games, Samus will rip out of her ball and you can aim any weapons you collected around the table. Lastly, further enhancing the realism, the game comes with a free rumble pack inside a GBA style cartridge, which while a bit noisy, works well. This can then later be used in Metroid Prime Hunters and Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time. Nintendo also announced the GBA slot will be used for many other NDS accessories to come, and we look forward to seeing what they come up with.
