At the time of writing, Metroid Prime: Hunters for the Nintendo DS has a compiled ratio of 90% in terms of game quality with several other reviews outstanding. Here's the first claims regarding the multi-player shooter in question:
- IGN 90% - "The NST team really went all out for this online experience - not only is the game tracking an enormous amount of statistics, but it's also the first DS game to support voice chatting via the system's microphone... Metroid Prime Hunters is easily the best handheld first person shooter developed to date, even with its somewhat high learning curve and cramp-inducing control."
- GamePro 90% - "Approximately as big as Metroid Prime on the GameCube, it's hard to imagine how Nintendo squeezed Hunters into a tiny DS cartridge. Metroid Prime: Hunters is a very polished game, suffering more from small quirks than actual flaws."
