Anyway, I'm thinking about ordering Metroid Prime for the Gamecube.
I got Metroid Prime today and played it for a bit. So far it's been very similar to Metroid Prime 2 as I expected. With a few nice differences though.
First off and most importantly, I noticed the music in this game is far better than in the sequel. At least, in my opinion. In MP2 the music was one of the few things that I hated. I felt like I was constantly listening to 10 second loops all the time. In this game however the music is far more interesting and the space station's music at the beginning really creeped me out.
Secondly I like how you get a little piece of artwork every time you scan a creature or some life-form. This wasn't in the sequel although you did get a 3D model of the creature in that one which was also nice. I don't like how you only get a small orange square on an object you can scan though. In the sequel they turned into a different color which was far more clear.
For the rest a couple of minor things like effects that are different. I'm not saying they look better, but it's nice that they updated that a bit.
One odd thing I found by the way was how the game only counts gametime as the time you spend walking around. It doesn't seem to count the time you're pausing the game to read logs or whatever and I know a lot of hours go into that.
But anyway I'm enjoying it so far.
