Product Description

The Galactic Federations Base Sector Zero is under attack by Space Pirates. Samus must boot up the generator to restore the defense systems. But at the end of her path, someone awful is waiting for her.The war initiated by Dark Samus and the Space Pirates rages across many planets as they attempt to corrupt each with Phazon seeds. Players use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to explore alien landscapes, hunt for weapons and information, and destroy the seeds. Saving the planets from Corruption isnt enough, though. Eventually, players must take down Samus mortal enemy, Dark Samus.Besides using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers to pull off amazing feats like aiming and blasting in midair or at a full run, players also will have an array of different weapons at their disposal. In true Metroid fashion, these will become powered up as the game progresses. Not only that, but the controller will be used for a number of other game elements beyond the traditional firstperson shooter standards. Players control Samus by moving with the Nunchuk controller and aiming with the pointer, allowing for a level of immersion unlike anything they have ever experienced. Through the eyes of Samus, players experience a quantum leap in first-person control as they wield the Wii Remote, the ultimate device for the firstperson shooter genre. Samus will employ well-known power-ups like the Grapple Beam and Morph Ball, as well as a bunch of new surprises, to help her survive her coming trials.

This is a fantastic finale to the great metroid prime series and definately the best yet.

For those who dont know you play a bounty hunter called Samus and you try to complete objectives on various planets and this game never dissapoints. The visuals are lush, the sound is atmospheric and now this time with full voice overs which gives the story more meaning, and the best bit is the fantastic controls. Now when ive played the prevous two adventures i can say you will never want to go back when you have tried this.

The only downside you may find that this game is challenging at times and is only for the hardcore.

However i strongly recommended this, and about flaming time the wii got some classic titles, and with mario galaxy just around the corner you can finally dust off those remotes and start playing once again. Fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 2 Jan 2008
By NP VINE VOICE
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I never really got into the Gamecube Metroid games much, so I hesitated for a long time before deciding to try this one. It's turned out to be one of the best games I've played on any platform, I've played through is so many times, and still love going back to it.

For those not familiar with it, it's an excellent FPS with some good puzzle, platforming, and exploration elements, but not so much that it stands in the way of the action.
The combat sectiongs are probably the closest thing to the Halo series on the Wii, but the exceptionally well-implemented Wii controls make the controls feel so much better than any joypad-controlled FPS.
It plays a bit differently from most FPSs though, with more platforming, puzzling, exploring, and a smaller number of tougher enemies, making you work harder to defeat them.
The boss fights are exceptionally well-done, some of the most enjoyable boss-battles I've played in any game - but you do have to use strategy to defeat them, use your visor to scan the boss, and gain hints about weaknesses etc. - just using traditional FPS-style strafing and firing won't get you very far against most of the bosses.

The graphics are amazing - not just technically (although it is probably the best looking game on the Wii besides Super Mario Galaxy) but also the effort that has gone into the design of buildings, enemies, levels, textures, artwork - it is truly beautiful to look at in places (the planet Elysia in particular), and the music is very good in places (again, Elysia stands out).

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant final chapter to the prime trilogy 30 Nov 2007
By Zabba
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game with high expectations, the first two Prime games on the Gamecube were excellent and I enjoyed playing through them. With Corruption, I wasn't disappointed.

There are many differences between this third game and the previous two. The most noticeable is the control style, which has changed to the Wii remote and nunchuck. I'm pleased to say that it works brilliantly, so much that it was really awkward going to analogue based shooters for a while because I was used to the smooth and accurate aiming. The nunchuck provides movement, morphball and other minor controls along with motion controls with the grapple beam (I'll get to that in a minute) and, so far, it's the closest you can get to Mouse and Key style controls on Wii. The controls are important, as many a Wii game have suffered due to bad controls. It's definitely not the case here.

With these added motion controls, the game instantly becomes more interactive. You can use the remote and nunchuck to move various objects like handles and switches, which is vital for solving puzzles. Locking on to an enemy and flicking the nunchuck swings out your grapple beam, a sort of electronic lasso you can use to rip shields off enemies or rubble from doors. It's just these minor things that make you smile and enjoy the game more. Although I must admit, it's occasionally unresponsive, but won't have a massive impact on your game experience.

Metroid prime 3 boasts better visuals, before Galaxy's release, it probably looked the nicest game on Wii, it's not up to the standards of the 360 or PS3, but if you're a proper gamer you'd have known that already. The frame rate is smooth, and the locations are atmospheric and whole game effects look nice indeed, such as condensation on your visor and rain drops.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 27 Oct 2007
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Anyone who has been worried about the lack of "real" games on the Wii can now rest easy. I'm normally more of a PC gamer and console games often struggle to keep my attention, but this is probably the best FPS I have ever played. The control mechanism is BETTER than mouse and keyboard, and they have finally got the graphics right. This game really shows what the Wii is capable of - it may not have all of the fancy textures of a PC game but the smoothness is unbelievable and the alien planets are far more complicated and imaginative than you might expect. Streaming loading means almost no annoying waiting for level loading like on most console games. Pure brilliance - more please!
