Product Description

You ARE Samus with Wii control! By moving around with the Nunchuk and aiming Samus's gun with the Wii Remote, you'll do more than look through the eyes of Samus—you'll experience a quantum leap in first-person control. Fire on the run, grapple enemies and yank off their shields, or manipulate machinery with movements of the Nunchuk and Wii Remote—it all adds up to a level of immersion only possible on the Nintendo Wii, and the best first-person controls on any platform, period. ** Corruption is everywhere... Dark Samus, Samus's longtime nemesis, is corrupting entire planets by launching enormous seeds called Leviathans into them. Samus must travel to multiple planets—each with unique alien landscapes and dangers—to fight the corruption and track several other bounty hunters, all the while fighting the spreading Phazon that threatens to take over her body completely. As it corrupts her, it also grants her incredible powers... ** Enter Hypermode! Samus will employ a never-before-used device called a Phazon Enhancement Device (P.E.D) that harnesses the Phazon within her and puts her into a state called Hypermode. In Hypermode, Samus can destroy Phazon impediments and annihilate enemies with superpowered weapons...but it drains her health to use it, and she risks utter corruption if she doesn't empty her Phazon meter within a certain time frame. You'll need to carefully balance your need for ultimate power with the inherent danger of corruption.

5.0 out of 5 stars MASTERPIECE! A Must Own Title. August 28, 2007
By Xam
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me start off by saying- hands down, this is one of the best video games i've ever played! I've been playing games for over 20 years, and have played all the greats on all the systems. Metroid Prime 3 deserves a spot along with the best of the best. This game literally changes the playing field for first-person shooters / adventures. The control is unbelievably precise, you can aim perfectly and naturally with the wiimote. After playing Metroid on Wii it's actually hard to use the dual analog controllers again, they feel so stiff and imprecise. There's fantastic motion-based controls as well, like thrusting the nunchuck forward and then back to rip the shield of enemies with your grapple beam. Graphically, Metroid 3 sets a new standard on the Wii, it's by far the best looking game on the system. The graphics are so good in fact, they almost give games on my 360 a run for their money. The art design is superb, from the aliens to the level design. Puzzles and power-ups are top notch, you even get to use Samus' ship for the first time ever. There are many worlds and locations to explore, each with distinctive characteristics, and beautiful graphics. The boss battles are some of the best i've ever played, you have to work hard to figure out their weakness and beat them, and it's just so gratifying. All of this wouldn't work without the superb controls, which i really can't emphasive enough. The aiming is spot-on, wherever you point, Samus aims and fires. The other thing that really sets this game apart is the gameplay- way more thinking is required than average first-person shooters. Besides blasting bad guys, you truly have to explore the many worlds and solve puzzles, which is the epitome of all Metroid games, and lots of fun. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate Prime! September 1, 2007
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a fan of the Metroid series and really came to love Metroid Prime on the Gamecube. The first game in the series really was a revolutionary design. I loved the controls for Samus on the GC controller and the scanning ability opened the door to a deep story. The second game was not as revolutionary and involved the most backtracking of the bunch along with managing the light/dark worlds and switching stuff in one to affect the other. Despite the faults of MP2: Echoes, the series was a fantastic mix of action and adventure with a disturbing backstory on top of it all.

As much as I liked the first two, Metroid Prime: Corruption is the best of the series. The control scheme on Wii is great. Those that complain about the map button being out of reach or that switch the jump and shoot buttons don't know what they're talking about. I guess what you want to use the trigger button for is a matter of preference, but the initial control scheme works fine for me. I also have no problem dropping my thumb down the the "1" button to check out the map and I don't need to look at the Wii remote to do so.

The voice acting is a welcome addition and well done.

Complaints posted here that Corruption looks like N64 graphics at times are ridiculous. This game's got more ploygons than the N64 could ever handle and is running at 60fps. Maybe you need to get your TV replaced if the game looks bad.

The graphics look fantastic on 480p. While they don't have the resolution of the Xbox 360 or the PS3, most people will be perfectly fine with the graphics. They're DVD quality and the design is excellent. Besides, you didn't buy the Wii because it had the best graphics, right? You bought the Wii because of the experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best games to hit the Wii yet August 28, 2007
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Metroid Prime series took Nintendo's much loved series to a new level with the first two installments of the series on the Gamecube. Now, finally, the Prime trilogy is completed with Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, which is undoubtedly the best FPS on the Wii, and one of the best overall game to hit the system yet. Once again playing as intergalactic space heroine Samus Aran, you should feel right at home here the minute you fire up the game. Even with a new control scheme that takes advantage of the Wii-mote and nunchuk controls, veterans of the series will have little to no trouble getting into the swing of things. As you can expect, there are a fair share of inventive puzzles and great levels to explore, and the boss battles are nothing short of spectacularly memorable as well. If there are any downsides to Metroid Prime 3, it's that the game can be too easy for some, and that as a whole, doesn't really do a whole lot more differently than the previous Metroid Prime games have done. That aside though, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is a more than worthy conclusion to the Prime trilogy and has been more than worth the wait as well. It also goes without saying that this is the best FPS on the system yet, and one of the best games available for the Wii at this time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Metroid Prime 3 Rocks! August 28, 2007
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Wow. Having purchased the game yesterday from the Nintendo World Store and squiring it home to play, I have to say that I am completely impressed. In essence, whatever you didn't like about prior Metroid installments has been remedied. I've waited for this game a long time (it's been delayed for almost a year) but in truth it is well worth the wait. The control scheme using the Wii remote and nunchuk is extremely responsive, well thought out and accurate (most importantly). The way Samus interacts with her environment is incredible- the morph ball is well executed and used appropriately, as is your double jump. The visuals are a knock-out! I've had a Wii from launch, and this is the best looking title, period. I am running it on an HDTV with the Nintendo-brand component cables, and it really makes a difference. This game looks head and shoulders better that the first two Metroid Prime games (especially with its liberal use of particle effects).
Some cons: I didn't like that you are forced to map your missiles to the down arrow of the d-pad, but such is life. You have to hit the down button in order to actually fire them, which I found unwieldy. I beat the first boss just fine like that, though. I guess you get used to it. The only other negative thing I can think of it that the load times (yes, there are load times) are sometimes long. I'll shoot a door open, and then find myself stupidly standing in front of it wondering if it's going to open or not. Other than that, I haven't found anything really negative to say.
The voice acting is a welcome change, and I like that Samus is around other people this time. The creatures that I have encountered thus far are varied and look great, and there are a lot of them. Metroid forces you to think out of the box.
