Before this, I had very little knowledge about the world of Metroid. It’s my first game of the Metroid series and I’ve only ever used Samus previously in the Super Smash Bros. series. I saw this game as a pre-owned title for a good price and I was in the mood for a new game, so I picked it up remembering the positive views of people at its time of release. Delving into this game, I had very high expectations in due to the high reviews (nine out of ten on average) and the description of it being the best first-person shooter controls ever designed. So how does a game to wrap up a trilogy released later than originally expected size up?
Welcome to the Metroid Universe, you’re about to dock with Battle Ship Olympus for briefing on a current problem after having just watched a cut scene involving some sort of Dark Samus. The overview of the plot is that you and several other bounty hunters have been called upon by Admiral Dane to receive information from the Aurora Unit (242). This unit ...
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption User review by The Primagen.
GRAPHICS 5/5 As you would expect from the sequel to perhaps the Nintendo Gamcubes prettiest game the graphics do not fail to amaze in the third installment of this acclaimed series. Each planet Samus visits is an entirely new adventure in itself as they all contain wonderfully varied architecture, flora and puzzles. The game is still viewed through a visor of sorts like the previous Prime games and while Some may think having a tinted HUD (heads up display) onscreen at all times would be Irritating it is in fact still a nice touch because alongside the amazing controls it really succeeds in fully immersing the player in the role of Samus Aran.
The Characters 4/5 Samus returns better than ever as the world's most dangerous bounty hunter. Only this time she doesn't feel so darned alone! If you have played the other games you'll know that basically you are dropped off on a planet and told to blow the hell out of everything that moves.. ...
THE GOOD: -Best graphics on the wii -Enhanced control system
THE BAD: -Not as memorable as 1 and 2 -Lack of metroid atmosphere
SUMMARY: The metroid games on gamecube were some of the best games on the system. With groundbreaking graphics, innovative and addicting gameplay and a successful franchise to build on making them loved by critics and players alike. Now, this year the long awaited wii metroid prime has been released. Fans were eager to see the changes to the franchise with the wii's capability's.
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption does differ from it's predecessors quite a lot in layout and story, but as far as gameplay's concerned it's fairly similar. Those familiar with the series will note that samus has never actually had conctact with other people and interacted with them, prime 3 is different. Samus is much more closely linked to the galactic federation now, taking away the lonesome feel of the past metroid games. This could be seen as a shame, as the isolated atmosphere was really q...
SUMMARY: Samus Aran makes a return with the latest game in the Prime trilogy, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.
A lot of new innovative controls were introduced to Corruption, and it's all thanks to the Wii's motion sensing controller. You can aim by moving the controller to the specific enemy you want to shoot, just as if you were in Samus' power suit. There's also certain parts of the game that make use of this feature, such as pulling things out, turning them, and putting them back. It's a really unique and great feature to play with.
Nintendo has outdone themselves with the graphics done on this game. The environments are truly astonishing and will leave you in awe. The characters are done in great detail, including Samus' power suit. Also the power suit's visor is reflective enough so that you can see Samus' eyes, and how the corruptio...
THE GOOD: -Upgraded graphics that are compete-able with the PS3. -Great Controls with more of an immersing 1st person shooter feel. -New upgrades and the ship control module allows you to fly to other planets. -And now there is actually life where you go, not leaving you as the lone-hero on a desolate planet destined to kill hundreds of baddies.
THE BAD: -Very few new upgrades and weapons, leaving you with very few "toys" to annihilate your foes. -Very short storyline, meaning less game-play. -Friend Voucher System is meaningless if you don't have any friends.
SUMMARY: In this new installment of the Metroid Prime series Samus is put on the Wii console, giving people the "Intergalatic hero feel". The graphics of the game are astounding, enough so that you would think this is a PS3 game. Also, with the fact that you can communicate with other people, it gives this game a more realistic feel. The enemies in this game also have that touch of darkness that makes the Good Vs. Evil Ploy come to l...
THE GOOD: -Improved Controls -Graphics -Easier back tracking -Combat more enjoyable then previous MPs -Worlds full of life and look good unlike MP2s darkworld
THE BAD: -Hint System as annoying and doesn't always tell you exactly which place you need to go -Voucher System if you don't have many MP3 friends -Some Boss fights are a little more confusing then previous MPs not in difficulty just finding what to do
SUMMARY: (Minor Gameplay spoilers)
Metriod Prime 3 is easily the best MP to date because of how much they've improved on everything. As the Wii controller makes combat feel like you're actually shooting them instead of the lock on system. Though you can still use that old system if you feel like it. These things must be changed in options first. You can also fight quite well without locking on to enemies which doesn't seem like much but if you've played an MP before you'll know that you couldn't before. This also helps looking around and exploring. Often to open doors and activate switches...
