  • Summary: Why does Nintendo seem to care so little about the Metroid series? Even though it's not that old, this was one of the only sites still selling it. Also, it doesn't seem like there are plans for another Metroid game anytime soon.
  • Pros: A solid finale to the Metroid Prime trilogy. If you liked the first two on GameCube, you'll like this one.
  • Cons: It's not the great leap ahead you usually expect when a franchise moves to a next-generation system. Play control on the Wii takes a little getting used to, but isn't too bad once you get the hang of it.

Next best FPS controls to mouse/keyboard

  • Summary: Long time fan of Metriod series. Started actually on the Gameboy w/ the ugly green screen. I was hooked and next follow by Super Metroid.( Virtual Console in Wii is great, purchased Super Metroid and man I usually don't like the old school games but I been having fun running through it again).
  • Pros: Great graphics from the Wii. Gameply is good. The controls at first bothered me but after switching them to advanced I no longer disliked the controls. They should have set the controls to advanced by default, night and day improvement. Independant looking and moving.
  • Cons: Felt like I was on a path and couldn't benefit or complete the game except in the path they wanted me to. I like to explore and be able to add completion with less then one option to follow.

  • Summary: They sure did a lot to prevent sequence breaking. Some of their preventive measures bugged my game at a couple points. This won't effect 99% of the population, so it cannot be considered a con.
  • Pros: For me, the controls were awkward until I changed them up a bit in settings. After that, I didn't even think of the controls during game play. The graphics were amazing and as I always hope when playing these 3D metroid games, the background to each and every civilization is absolutely astounding...
  • Cons: There are two "hint" systems. One you can avoid, but the other forces itself upon you with both visual and auditory on-screen hints. The "people" aspect of the game isn't my style. I'd rather it be the solo bounty hunter deal where nobody speaks and nobody gives orders. Some may not consider that...

Falls just shy of being great.

  • Summary: I really enjoyed this game, not as much as MP1 or 2, but still thought it was really good. The graphics look real nice and each area you visit has a unique look to it. There's a lot of exploring to do as this is easily the longest of the three prime games. The music is good but subtle.

All about the gameplay

Johnny Utah, Amazon
16 December 2007
  • Summary: MP3 is all about the gameplay. It makes really great use of the Wii's unique capabilities. In fact, this could well be the best Wii title in terms of pure overall gameplay. The only thing I missed was the capability to swing around a cylindrical object (ie a sword or something like that), which to...

Frustrating, but fun

D. Wright, Amazon

  • Summary: I've enjoyed playing Metroid Prime 3 on Wii, but it does get very frustrating at times. I'm pretty much a novice gamer and not too keen on shooters, but the graphics in this game are excellent. The walkthroughs seem to assume an awful lot of prior knowledge and leave a lot to be desired.

Great game, couple improvements could be made

TC, Amazon
16 December 2007
  • Summary: I am so glad I picked up this game after hearing good feedback from friends. It is a very LONG game, many many villains, takes a bit of clever thinking to figure out many levels. The back story is pretty cool, but I'm more of just a shoot-em-up sort of guy.

Metroid Prime 3: Good but Different

Amazon
16 December 2007
  • Summary: As good as the First!! It's pretty good but not exacly what I expected. I thought it would be more like the others: a constant exploration for tecnology to complete your mission but instead it's more of a closed course with a diferent mission every time.

A Great Update to a Well-Loved Series

  • Summary: My review in a nutshell: I love this game, and I recommend it to anyone that enjoys a good, deep action-adventure game, or those who are ready to take the jump into more serious Wii games.
