5.0 out of 5 stars "Corruption" Ranks Among Nintendo's Finest, August 30, 2007

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (Video Game)
For me, there are three moments in my gaming experience I'll never forget. The first moment came when I played Rare's GoldenEye; second, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time; third, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.

The first time I played the Wii, I knew it was only a matter of time before they perfected the shooter genre. I enjoyed Twilight Princess, but I found myself returning to Wii Sports because of how much I enjoyed the Wii remote technology. Finally Nintendo has offered the perfect game that compliments its amazing motion-sensor technology.

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption offers players more than just great shooter action. Using the Wii remote offers pinpoint accuracy (I don't know if I can ever play another FPS again without the remote), but it's the rest of the game that captured my imagination.

You use the grappling hook by moving your hand holding the nunchuck forward, then pulling back. You type in codes by moving Samus's hand around a keypad. You pull levers by manuevering the remote.

"Corruption" comes as close to Halo as Nintendo can get, and frankly, I prefer it. Barring a lack of multiplayer (which would be great, but has never been offered in the past, so I don't miss it), this game could have stood as one of the best shooter games every made.

I recommend "Corruption" to any gamer who enjoys the Wii, shooter games, or great adventure games. You won't be disappointed.

This guy sounds like a Nintendo employee.
He doesn't say anything negative about the game.
i wouldn't trust anything he says.

I specifically mentioned the lack of multiplayer as a bit of a let-down, but since Metroid games have never offered it, it's hard to miss something you've never had.

The Wii definitely isn't perfect (sub-par graphics as well as mediocre games), but Metroid 3 will define this console in the same way that the previous two games I mentioned in my review defined the Nintendo 64.

I think a multipayer like the one in Metroid Prime: Hunters would Be Great because I own the Game and even if you are bad it is fairly fun.
