Metroid Prime and Mood-Setting Music

BT writes: Among the numerous series Nintendo has created over the years, one of the most acclaimed and prolific has been the Metroid series. Barring an exception or two, more or less every game has been met with massive praise from critics and fans alike for their wonderful design in all aspects, with perhaps the most well-received of the bunch being Metroid Prime. Every facet of the game is designed to accentuate the overall aesthetic and atmosphere presented in any given situation, and this is used to their greatest effect in the musical scoring on display. Many games unsuccessfully try to have a soundtrack that fits every location perfectly and has a number of good songs even when the circumstances are taken away, usually succeeding at one or the other if it succeeds at all. Metroid Prime has the distinction of performing brilliantly in both categories. ( Metroid Prime, Wii)
