Summary: sometimes im not in the position Nintendo intended this thing to be used , im in bed with a tv a meter or so above the bed like a meter away from my bed , just in front , and even so the motion thing is hard to use , sometimes fails or goes out of screen making me miss shots and feeling uncomfortable , then my wrist starts hurting cus of the position i have to be , motion should be optional , but the game itself is not bad
Summary: While retaining the great score and gameplay mechanics of the first two Prime titles, the latest release in the series suffers from a few different issues. The largest problem is the control scheme. Looking to capitalize on the sensation that is the Wii's motion capabilities you aim and shoot your way through the game using the wiimote while moving with the nunchuk.
Summary: This is a fun game and is really optimized well for the wii's motion sensing controller and nunchuck. The only problem is that you have to repeatedly hit over and over the B button to fire. Most enemies take an enormous amount of hits to die. My fingers started hurting from having to hit that button so much.
Summary: I do like Metroid, I think the SNES Metroid is amazing. I tried this one with high expectations and I guess I can say I was a little let down. I am not ripping this game to shreds I am just saying, this game without a walkthrough or strategy guide would be very confusing and complicating. They made this game look so advanced its almost hard to comprehend and play, if a younger child had this game they would struggle.
Summary: As the tag line says, easy but fun. You only get a handful of weapons but the sheer scope of the play area is pretty good for saying it's on the Wii. I like the attention to detail that has gone into the scanning ability on the HUD system.
Summary: Hmmm. I liked this at first, but now I'm a bit 'meh' about the whole thing. It feels as if you need to care about the unfolding story and what will happen next - I'm new to the Metroid series, so I found it hard to give a fig. It took a while to get the hang of the controls, which was inevitable but frustrating.
Summary: I'm a big fan of the Metroid game series but have a major critisism with the Wii controller and nunchuck as the control system which in my view really takes a lot of the pleasure from the game...something that has been put right to some degree with the Metroid Other M game, which doesn't use the nunchcuk.
Superb showpiece but ultimately a little unfulfilling

Summary: I recently bought a Wii after long deliberations between it, a PS3 and an XBox. As a one-time hardcore gamer who had since, erm, grown up and had less and less time for games, I was overjoyed to find hardcore, gorgeous-looking games do exist on the Wii. Metroid Corruption is nothing if not a showpiece for the Wii, a satisfying confirmation that, while the Wii may be weaker, it can still compete in the hardcore stakes.
