Excerpt: Metroid™ Prime 3: Corruption set a new standard for first-person motion controls in video games. Now it's bringing those controls to the rest of the celebrated series, allowing players to experience the entire Metroid Prime story arc with the...
Conclusion: Despite this glaring issue, Metroid Prime Trilogy is a great release. Any Wii owner who has not played these games simply must go out and pick it up. If you're a returning fan, you may be disappointed with the lack of bonus / original content. Still, the widescreen presentation and the motion controls do breathe a significant amount of life back into the titles. As such, this is likely a must-buy for any Nintendo fan, regardless.
Summary: Metroid Prime Trilogy is the best deal in gaming right now, though far too many people are likely to pass it by. These three games (now available on one disk with Wii-tailored controls) tend to be either adored or ignored. I'd wager that's because most people see the word " Metroid " and "first person" and assume that immediately know what the Prime games are all about.
Summary: The original Metroid Prime is one of the best games of the previous generation, and its sequels are competent at the very least. This collection would be a great deal if it added anything at all to the original titles, but its sole innovation is grafting Corruption’s Wii interface onto the two earlier games. Aiming and panning your view with the remote is inferior in every way to the traditional scheme from the GameCube titles.
Conclusion: Quel plaisir de retrouver un des jeux vidéo les plus mythiques sur une console Nintendo. Mais quel intérêt aussi de disposer d'une telle compilation quand on dispose déjà de ces trois titres ? A vous de juger si cette trilogie mérite votre attention. Vous avez désormais toutes les cartes pour procéder ou non à l'achat.
Pros: Des jeux inchangés, Un nouveau gameplay confortable, Le prix, La possibilité de vivre l'aventure de A à Z sans interruptions
Excerpt: The Metroid Prime Trilogy is a series of games centered around Samus Aran, a space bounty hunter and nerd-boy paramour. The storied history of this series's production is well known. Many doubted the decision to move the franchise into first-person. Gamers wondered if Retro Studios had the talent to deliver Nintendo-like quality on this esteemed franchise. They assumed that Metroid Prime was doomed to failure.
Summary: No Wii collection is complete without the Metroid Prime Trilogy
Pros: Three amazing games for the price of one; perfect combination of exciting action and puzzle solving; some of the best first person aiming found on the Wii; graphics still hold up nicely; eerie soundtrack that is utterly enthralling.
Cons: Inclusion of Gamecube control scheme couldn't have hurt.
Summary: A great bargain, and if you never played the original releases or have lost access to them over the years then you should definitely get Metroid Prime Trilogy. Three classic games for $50 is a deal you should accept!
Excerpt: Nintendo has a knack for successfully revisiting its core franchises and I would even venture to say that this happens almost more than any other developer. Samas Aran is the latest character to benefit from such treatment in Metroid Prime Trilogy (noted as Prime in this review). This trilogy brings all three Metroid Prime games together on one disc to complete the entire Phazon story arc.
