Not only that, but players can also earn awards by collecting tokens through their progress across the trilogy, making for an ideal award system. Both Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes games have been updated with the refined control system of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Moving is done with the Control Stick and the Nunchuck controller, while the Wii Remote controller controls the Arm Cannon's crosshairs, allowing the player to smoothly and more accurately aim by pointing at the screen. The camera will move where the player points, making for more intuitive control, and allowing players to look around and attack while moving. Three different sensitivity settings allow everyone from beginners to FPS veterans to find a response speed to their liking.

This is possibly one of the nicest game collections I've ever purchased. Everything, from the packaging down to the game content itself is top notch, obviously intended to make the fan boys drool. I personally don't care about the collector's aspect of the game. It's nice, but I am more interested in the upgraded controls. I was not disappointed in the least. Much like the Pikmin remake, the upgraded controls rejuvenate the experience.

Most of this review focuses on this product as a collector's pack or compilation since there is an abundance of good reviews on each of the individual games. For anyone who hasn't played any of the Metroid Prime series of games, here's a really quick summary. You play as Samus Aran, a bounty-hunter in a power suit that must save the galaxy from immense and epic danger. THREE TIMES! The game is played from a first-person perspective, and althought you kill a lot of Space Pirates with a variety of weapons, it is quite different from many FPS titles out there. Exploration of the environment and discovery of clues, countless upgrades, intense platforming sections, and backtracking to find new paths are the name of the game. In my opinion, the Metroid Prime series is possibly the only FPS title out there that really manages to get platforming right. Almost never do the jumps feel cheap or impossible, even when they are challenging. Combat controls are tight and responsive and I never found myself struggling with flaws in the controls. Each of the three games play essentially the same, but the story is slightly different in each with some different weapons and item upgrades found throughout the title.

WHAT'S NEW IN THIS?
- Wii pointer controls for aiming and some limited motion controls.

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is, without a doubt, one of the best games I have ever played. It is almost 3 years old now as it was one of the near-launch titles for the Wii, but it is still one of the prettiest titles available in the entire catalog of Wii games. So, if you have never owned/played Metroid Prime 3, then this purchase is a no-brainer: In addition to Metroid Prime 3, one of the best titles available on the Wii... you get it's pre-Wii predessors: Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2, both of which, despite being ports of Gamecube game, still look incredible, and have the added benefit of the new Wii controls.

For the price of one Wii game, you get 3 of the best games available on Gamecube/Wii. It is estimated by Ign.com that the entire trilogy amounts to over 80 hours of gameplay... and this doesnt even take into account the fact that Metroid Prime 2 also has 4-player splitscreen multiplayer (LOCAL ONLY unfortunately!). Also, for those of you that are like me and like a real challenge, once you beat the game on "Veteran" difficulty, you unlock "Hypermode" difficulty. I never did beat Metroid Prime 3 on Hypermode difficulty... it is that hardcore.

Here are some features that make this trilogy an epic must-have for the Wii:

1) 3 GREAT games for the price of 1... no brainer. All 3 games look great and are a blast to play. When you start up Trilogy, you can select to play any of the 3 games, or to play Prime 2's multiplayer (which is available from the start). Each game has it's own progress tracking/save, as well as achievements.

2) Improved controls, visuals, and gameplay for Metroid Prime 1 and 2: The visuals on both games got a bit of an update, and some of the bosses and enemies are more balanced.

In 2002, Metroid pretty much returned from the dead with Metroid Prime. The game was amazing, with some of the best visuals of the time and intoxicating gameplay. The series had gone to a first person perspective. Nintendo defined as a First Person Adventure, and not a shooter. Yet it worked for Metroid perfectly. Metroid Prime 2: Echoes came out in 2004, and while it didn't match the flair of the first one, it was still a pretty good game in and of itself. In 2007, however, the Metroid Prime Trilogy got an overhaul in controls. The motion sensor controls actually worked really well with Metroid Prime 3. Even then some of us were probably thinking, "Wouldn't it be great to play the first two games like this?" And now Nintendo is letting us do just that. You can now plow through all three Metroid Prime titles. The entire trilogy is on one disc and they've got those added controls for those who enjoyed them in Metroid Prime 3. It might bring into question as to whether or not it's worth it for those who played the previous two games. That depends on if you want a different experience. It's worth considering, though, because you're getting three games for the price of one.

If you've never played Metroid Prime before--any of them, then this is a good way to introduce yourself to the games. There isn't a whole lot to discuss with Metroid Prime. They're beautiful games that put a huge emphasis on exploring and adventure. All three games do this while telling a story. Story isn't really a strong point with Metroid, however. Not nearly as much as exploring corridors, collecting upgrades, fighting colossal bosses and backtracking.

The Wii remote lets you play the first two games in the same manner you played the third. Giving you the Wii Remote as your gun.
