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.

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

This is an amazing game for the metroid series, complete with familiar music, ship control and memorable boss battles. Grab this one if you enjoyed Super Metroid back in '94!Published 8 months ago by OutdoorJeremy
Long time Metroid fan. Bought this used. Big let down, not the game play, but the game disc. Disc has zero scratches that look worthy of stuttering play. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Skeptic
