Nintendo uses an interesting control scheme for Metroid Prime: Hunters, the top screen is where all the action takes place and where your HUD is located, while the touch screen acts as a radar, and an area for you beam selection. The real magic is how the touch screen is used to control Samus in this First Person Adventure, you simply move the stylus across the screen to where ever you wish to position your cannon, this works great for quick spins and complete accuracy.
