I unfortunately have no way of verifying if the multiplayer is peak

A Metroid Prime on the DS.. It works and is a fun enough time. I played this on the Wii U but I assume if I played this on the DS I would've gotten some insane hand cramps.

while it plays smoothly enough on the game end of things, the ds controls hurt my hand and would probably permanently damage it

i could emulate it, but the shortcuts they had to take in the level design to get it on a DS really show from the start, so i'll just stick with the rest of its series

Greasing up my DS lite with my potato chips-covered hands, logging into a wi-fi multiplayer match with my friends, roasting each other over the distorted in-game voice chat, it all amounted to an unforgettable experience. I picked Trace a lot in the beginning as he raked in kills with headshots (and that sniper sfx, oof...), but that only served to piss off my friends so I crutched myself by picking Sylux instead. Accommodating spirit that I was. Those grid bombs he made in ball form were pretty satisfying, though.

I also played through the single-player story several times, probably the most I've ever replayed a campaign before. I suppose it was a way to practice movement and aiming for the multiplayer matches, but also I just really loved it. Where's the next one? Hopefully Prime 4.

"Wireless win record 187 of 219"

Ooof, sorry to my buddies.

"Wi-fi win record 32 of 82"

Well, guess I wasn't all that...

I really couldn't play any further. I was bored out of my mind, the story didn't hook me, the controls quite frankly hurt, and even through all of this I can still acknowledge this is an extremely impressive game to be running on a Nintendo DS. It has a lot of strong ideas, mainly bringing the Prime series to a handheld format, but it's just not a strong enough title to keep me wanting to play it for it's entirety. Maybe I'll revisit this game one day and like it a lot more but for now I just can't bring myself to push through this.
