Video: Nintendo Minute Debate – Super Metroid vs. Metroid Prime
Kit and Krysta bring back the Debate Edition of Nintendo Minute as they put their opinions to the test and discus which game is the better Metroid between, Super Metroid and Metroid Prime.
Why not tell us which Metroid video game between the two is your favorite. If you have a favorite Metroid title that isn’t one of these, why not tell us which one it is.

This video was a complete waste of time. Prime and Super are two completely different games and shouldn’t be compared directly to one another. Super is a masterpiece and set in motion the game play, level design and atmosphere that future releases in the Metroid franchise should retain.
The glorious team at retro was able to craft a game in 3d that blows any fps/action/adventure both past and current away with a sawed off, double barreled shotgun and begs, begs any one developer to come up with a game to compare. There is not one game since 2002 that matches it’s pedigree. Best Environments, Music, Sound Design, Level Design, Loading during elevator/hatch opening sequences, Seamless & Complimenting environments, Samus suit redisign/upgrades, Fps Jump/movement mechanics, Morph ball Mechanics…should I go on. Do yourself a favor and read a wiki on the team that put this once in a lifetime masterpiece together. http://ca.ign.com/articles/2004/12/18/a-retrospective-the-story-of-retro-studios
It’s a great read.
Ultimately, these two video presenters fail to present any real proof to why one is better than the other and these games deserve nothing other than absolute and justifiable scrutiny when reviewing them because they deserve nothing less.

I agree, I always feel like minutes before these Nintendo Minutes Kit and Krysta are told which Nintendo properties they like and must talk about. Not quite to the degree of Nintendo Week (who else remembers Gary and Allison?!) but still cheesy.
