Space Pirate Ambush by Mephmmb Space Pirate Ambush by Mephmmb
There is this place in Metroid Prime, the labs in Phendrana Drifts, were you are always ambushed by Space Pirates, with cammouflage, and the room is damn dark so you gotta use your thermal visors to fight them... Damn I hated that place, it was a big hassle fighting them every time, but I'll be damned if it wasn't visually a pretty cool place for a fight, I always left feeling like a badass after killing them.
So I decided to use that place as reference for a Metroid fanart I've been wanting to do :D

Metroid (C) Nintendo

I totally agree with you on this area. I think when you go down to get the visor is when you are attacked by the Metroids on the way down correct? And you wander outside on the walkways and are attacked by the flying pirates. That whole portion of the game is burned into my brain... so fantastic, though definitely hard as hell in parts.

Fantastic painting! You captured the visuals of Prime perfectly. Love the dynamic angel too!

My main place of torment when it came to space pirates was in the phazon mines, the ones that can only be hurt by a certain beam of yours. it was a pain when they came in droves especially in such a small areas without much cover. sometimes out of nowhere. ><;

Yeah, it was incredibly frustrating, especially when you didn't have the last suit of the game and you end up falling into phazon and then you had to climb all the way on top while fighting those guys

Oh yeah! that too. I hate the yellow ones and red ones the most. And if it weren't for those douches being in there, any of the 4 colors in general, I wouldn't have had such trouble fighting that Omega Pirate. I hate those mega turrets things too. you'd think they'd have put a save point in there a little ways thru before the boss fight with the elite pirate and/or the invisible turret or something, I mean, seriously!

Yeah, that whole part can be frustrating as hell...
Oreon-la Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Indeed. As said, don't know why they didn't place save points in one of the hardest areas when you needed it...until after all the torment! >.<

Metroid Prime was fun except when it came to fighting the specific beam space pirates I hated those things
