This is a sci-fi action game in which players assume the role of Samus Aran, an armored bounty hunter investigating a distress call from a derelict federation cruiser. Players follow Samus using a third-person view as she explores corridors and hallways to battle alien creatures and space pirates. Players use energy beams, ice blasters, missiles, and bombs to destroy enemy creatures that disappear in splashes of green or purple bursts. Players can also switch to a first-person view to find and target specific enemy weak points. The frequent combat is highlighted by slow-motion effects and up-close finishing moves; some finishing moves depict the central character jumping behind enemies and shooting a blaster behind creatures' heads.
