Metroid Prime 3 has perfect controls and fun gameplay. 0

This is the first Metroid Prime I actually beat.  I got 2/3s of the way into the first Metroid Prime, I got the final boss in Metroid Prime 2, and I gave up after about 2 weeks with Metroid Prime Hunters.  The first Metroid Prime was amazing for the time, but in retrospect, the controls are a bit clunky, and the scanning sucks.  Metroid Prime 2 fixed all the problems of the first game, but it didn't advance much beyond that.  It was basically the same game.Metroid Prime 3 feels like a new game. ...

In Depth Metroid Prime 3 Review. 0

Metroid is a long running series of games starring 7 of them in the timeline so far, with 9 showcased total (pinball, zero mission). Metroid is not your every day shooter, or even one. This subject is even debated upon today, and still with differing opinions. With Super Metroid being the landmark title of the growing series, fans and gamers alike were unsure about a 3D Metroid…Developed by Retro Studios, and published by Nintendo, you already can tell this is going to be one of the best games m...

A Worthy Conclusion to a Great Series 0

  I'm not sure whether it was the bad taste left in my mouth from Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, or my growing realization that buying a Wii was a huge waste of money, but when Metroid Prime 3: Corruption was released, I let the moment pass me by.  It was only after enduring the shit show that is Metroid: Other M, that I remembered that the Wii is home to another Metroid game that's potentially not terrible.  One of the reasons that I didn't quickly pick up Corruption was the new control scheme.  It a...

It's not bad, it's just majorly disappointing. 0

Metroid Prime 3 is probably on of the worst Metroid games yet. It's not bad, it's just disappointing, because many features and items are not available unlike previous games, and especially after 10 years of getting it right.First thing is that the game starts in a Galactic Fedration Ship. It looks too much like the beginning of Halo. Suddenly, Space Pirates attack the vessel, and three hunters; Rundas, Ghor, and Gandrayda, investigate other planet's Aurora Units, supercomputers, for a virus tha...

The weakest link in the Metroid Prime chain 0

Visuals: 5/5While not technically impressive, the artistic design behind Corruption is flawlessly imaginative. The set pieces are so large they will blow your mind, and that is a very good thing! The models are very good, tons of detail and it all runs very smoothly. The texture work is downright impressive, some of the best I've seen in a video game, to date! The effects (sparks, energy blasts, explosions, etc...), all look superb. The environments, from the fiery lava pits to to the abandoned ...

Nothing too spectacular 0

While the latest Metroid offering is a good solid game, you should take care not to approach it thinking you are getting into a traditional FPS. This was the mistake I made. It's been well over a decade since I have even touched a Metroid game, so I guess my expectations were just a little bit off.I was led to believe that this installment was going to simply be a first person shooter, and while from a technical standpoint this may be so, the game plays out a lot more like an adventure game than...

Review: Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (Wii) 0

The appeal of the Metroid series has long been the isolated adventure through uncharted worlds. It's surprising then in the final chapter of the Metroid Prime trilogy that Samus Aran spends so much time listening to other people tell her what to do and where to go. This is the case in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption because Samus is basically a federal contractor; a one-woman cleaning crew assigned to rid the universe of the glowing, corrosive element, Phazon.The game opens strongly with an intense ...

Easier to consume then previously, but also flatter overall 0

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption was released in 2007 and marks the third and final entry in the Metroid Prime series (ignoring the Nintendo DS spin offs Metroid Prime: Hunters and Metroid Prime Pinball). Unlike its two predecesors this game didn't came out on the GameCube, but on its successor, the Nintendo Wii and large parts of the game design reflect this change in being build specifically around the Wiimote controller and its pointing and motion detection capabilities. The game also takes a more...

Metroid Prime caves to peer pressure. 0

METROID PRIME 3: CORRUPTION (2007) closes the Prime trilogy out with another well-playing, good looking game. This time the story has taken even more of a focus, with full cutscenes, speech and all, which is perhaps the largest flaw in this game. The story is terribly written and acted, and serves only to make the game feel like it’s imitating something like Halo rather than playing to the strengths of the series. Most of the actual gameplay is pretty familiar Metroid stuff, exploration an...

Almost as good as the original 0

-- Transmission Received -- When Metroid Prime debuted back in 2001 for the Gamecube no one could have foreseen the unmistakable impact that the game had on all other shooters since its release. Many developers have tried, but none have succeeded where Retro Studios has in making a compelling game world as rich as Metroid's. Playing as the female bounty hunter Samus Aran, alone in the universe to uncover secrets of ancient alien species and mysteries. Starting in the first game with the Tallon ...

Face it, it's one of the best Wii games...... 0

Let's face it, this is one of the best Wii games. Graphically, dept of gameplay, control wise, ease of play, sound quality, story line, make this hands down one of the best games available for the Wii. This is a Action First Person Shooter Sci-Fi Actions Adventure. The controls are simple and surprisingly accurate. If you like movies like Aliens, Starship Troopers, Star Wars or Blade Runner, then it's a pretty safe bet you will enjoy this game. You don't have to be familiar with the previous Pri...

Corruption is the "Prime" example of the Wii's true aim. 0

    The Wii gets a lot of flak, and I mean a lot of flak for its control setup. Often called "gimmicky", "pointless", or "childish", it is the bane of all that the traditional gamer stands for, or at least that's what some select haters would lead one to believe. The points made on why the control setup doesn't work were completely shattered with Metroid Prime 3. While the game is fundamentally very similar to the prior two games, it represents better than any other game on the market what the W...

2 sides of a coin, controls are hit or miss. 0

Controls: The coin description works well here, as on one hand you've got phenomenal in game controls and actions that do work. However on the same note, the fact that you cannot use a controller means that if your setup isn't ideal, it can be a pain to play. For instance, the tv i started on seemed to be uncooperative in every way with the sensor bar in mp3. The 2nd problem here is often times turning was a pain during boss battles, as moving my cursor to the side of the screen made the w...

Metroid Prime 3 is a great ending of the trilogy. 0

Game play:Metroid Prime 3 is the ending of the trilogy and its on the Nintendo Wii now let`s talk about the controls in the controls you can choose the sensitivity like Beginner standard and Advanced i suggest that you use advance because you can move allot more and you have more space around to kill enemies. The story is different instead that you loose your accesories and that you try to find them Samus keeps them and she continues on the game like you have power beam missiles morph ball doubl...

A Fantastic, yet familiar, Metroid game 0

Metroid Prime 3 is very similar to the previous two entries by Retro Studios, but it feels like the final product of many adjustments and tweaks to the Metroid Prime formula. Overall, this is perhaps the most well-designed and finely polished Metroid Prime game. Once again the art direction remains in the top of it's class, with Prime 3 having some of the most fantastic alien environments the series has ever seen. You really get a sense that there is a history and culture from every stone in ev...

Nintendo's best FPS 0

This game should have been perfect. This should have been the next "GoldenEye" or the next "Ocarina of Time". It easily could have been, but some minor things keep it from becoming the masterpiece of our time. What are those things? I'll get to them later.The game starts you off in the base of the good guys. You go through a bunch of rooms to the commander, where he'll tell you your mission. Then the aliens attack, and you need to get out of the space base. This has been done before in games lik...

Metroid Prime 3 is simply one of the best games of all time 0

The Good: Perfect controls Beautiful artistic graphics and great soundtrack Great voice acting Superb boss battlesThe Bad: Doors still take about 10 seconds to open ________________After much, and i mean very much hype Metroid Prime 3: Corruption the latest game in the long running saga is here, courtesy of Retro Studios, the developers of the previous 2 games. Did it deliver? Yes. Was all the hype worthy? Yes. The last two games of the franchise are two of the best games ever, and Met...

The most polished game on the system 0

2007 was the year of trilogies. Some began, some ended. No console was immune to this, and none went quite the way Metroid Prime 3: Corruption for the Wii did. With innovate controls, an interesting and dark plot, and some of the best graphics seen on the Console, Retro ended Metroid Prime the way it began. Splendedly.When the Wii controller was first introduced in 2005 at Tokyo Game Show, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes was a showcase game for how the controller would work in a variety of ways. This is...

A great ending to the Prime series and overall a fantastic game!! 0

And the final statement of the Prime series comes! Right at the introduction you see what's coming, an epic and totally worthy Metroid game, the music and the introduction itself are great, they bring a thrilling felling right at the start, new characters are introduced, new areas, and of course new weapons! The graphics are sharp, not the best you can see comparing with others consoles, and maybe not even fulfilled by all the power Wii can show, but still beautifully crafted with the visuals m...

In its own right, a gem, but flawed when compared to other Primes 0

Metroid Prime 3 : Corruption, then. Released in 2007 to much praise, it perhaps more than any other game on the system best displayed the Wii's true capability of what motion controls can do for a genre. There are some flaws, but Prime 3 : Corruption is definitely a game you'll want to play.  Four years on and it's my turn to take a look at the final chapter of the Prime trilogy.   If you've bought or have played the Metroid Prime Trilogy edition - which comes with all 3 Prime games, complete w...

Prime 3 review 0

When I picked up this game I was like YA, SWEET, and it was everything I wanted from the beginning. The game starts off 6 months after Prime 2's events with Samus the Bounty Hunter sleeping in her gunship. She is called onboard the GFS Olympus to recieve a message and things start getting to business quickly. Space Pirates attack the fleet and launch an attack on nearby Norion. Samus then fights off the flagship and down to the planet, where the plot really starts to thicken. Lets start with the...
