LOVED IT SO MUCH!
The first two Prime games have a special spot on my shelf, next to all my 360 games and movies. Unfortunately I had to let this one pass by me until now because I just got a Wii recently. But coming up on 3 years this is still one of the best looking games I've ever played. The art is just...out of this world. Really though, off in the sky you see giant balls floating away, chained to the surface by massive chains. Each room has its own personality, each room is a completely unique space. Lava falls, snowy canyons tucked away, the acid coated Pirate Homeworld. Nothing looks quite like a Metroid Prime game, and nothing gets quite on the same footing. The puzzles aren't just complex, they're interesting. It still feels like a Metroid game, but backtracking through all the planets puts it on a different scale from the rest of the franchise. Space battles, and voice acting are two things I would not have expected so much of. But I didn't find it distracting or hurting the Metroid name. There are only so many times you can explore barren planets before it's time to had some more flavor. The bounty hunter designs were all spot on for me. The controls on the Wii are fantastic for this game. It keeps that really precise shooting intact while doing the Wii pointer right. I can't give it enough credit. If I ever had to, it would have a place among my favorite games of all time. If you were on the fence about it, or you are like me and just now tapping into the Wii, this is one of the must haves.
