Conclusion: MP3:C is still a solid game. The experience is lacking somewhat in certain areas where it could have been better. However, one of the best moments I’ve had in a while was first playing the game and learning the controls.
Summary: The Galactic Federation's 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.
Summary: If you expected Metroid Prime 3: Corruption to be a high-quality continuation of the series, you'd be right. And yes, the Wii controls are terrific and intuitive, so if you hoped that controlling bounty hunter Samus Aran would be a dream, that wish has been granted, too.
Pros: Fantastic environmental puzzles are among the best of the series, Great boss fights require you to use every game mechanic at your disposal, Atmospheric levels are a pleasure to explore, Various gameplay elements mesh nicely into a seamless whole
Cons: Some of the contextual actions don't control all that well, Streamlined controls make things a little too easy and a little less adventurous, Doesn't do much different than the previous two Metroid Prime games
Conclusion: In that vein, and with the benefit of hindsight, I can easily award this game a full 10/10 for value and replayabilty. Many TOAW players are entirely dedicated to this game system, even as newer and admittedly better looking wargames are released year after year.
Pros: A classic hex wargame; unlimited replayability; detailed combat engine.
Cons: Many non-fatal flaws in the combat engine; dated graphics; awkward interface.
Corruption Time! Metroid Prime 3 (Finally) Touches Down On the Wii
The TPS Report
12 February 2008
Conclusion: All in all then, Metroid Prime is perhaps not quite what I expected. Here I am praising the graphics, yet whining about the controls. In a Wii game. Sacre blue! While mildly flawed in some areas though, the game most definitely exceeds expectations in others.
