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. There isn't any music I would say was great but it does fit the environments. Controls - The game controls fairly well using the wii controller.
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.
Summary: I received a Wii for my birthday. I was hyped up to play my favorite game on it: Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Once I beat it I noticed the problems of the Wii. One big problem with the Wii was the games. As you may know, the Wii is the best-selling video game system out of itself, the PS3, and the 360. This is largely due to its casual audience. The causal audience is fond of games like Wii Sports, Cooking Mama, etc.
Summary: I think I liked other versions of Metroid on other platforms better. This one is significantly lacking in weapons upgrades and some of the levels are a bit tedious. You'll probably need to go to a walkthrough description to get through the tougher parts of the game. It takes good advantage of the Wii controller. The graphics are good. The game play is lively. I give it a solid B.
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.
Summary: I had won a Metroid Prime 3 game, and I loved it, it was really fun, but it is only one player game, so I can't really play with anyone else. In this game, you can actually for the first time in Metroid, you can control the space ship.
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: I finally bought this game a couple weeks ago when I got my Wii. This game is so much fun. There's a better story line, perfect controls, great sound, and some pretty nice graphics too. Once and for all we get to kill Dark Samus and stop the Corruption for good! I'll start off by saying the new weapons and gadgets are pretty cool. Some are sort of useless after one use, such as the ship missiles, but are still required to reach 100% pickups.
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. In a slightly larger shell: MP3 is the first foray for Samus Aran into the world of Wii controls, and I have to say, it is a very successful one. The new controls are more than just a button reassignment, something that the latest Legend of Zelda had a hard time escaping.
