Kidzworld :: Metroid Prime, Professor Layton, and Trine

Keep up-to-date with all the latest video game releases! Kidzworld has all the latest games to keep watch for. This week, we preview Metroid Prime Trilogy, Professor Layton 2, and Trine!

Metroid Prime Trilogy

You may not see a better deal for the Wii, well, ever. Metroid Prime Trilogy combines all three of the 3d Metroid games from the Gamecube and Wii onto one disc, for the price of a single Wii game. All three games are absolute classics, and they all still feel pretty new (especially if you've never played them). If you're a new Wii owner, this is probably a no-brainer to buy when it comes out on the 24th. There isn't any better sci-fi shooter, anywhere.


Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box

Professor Layton's devilish puzzles are back in a sequel on the DS. This time, there's a murder mystery to solve and, without giving too much away, your only clue is a train ticket. The game retains its awesome puzzles and adds in some new minigames with really cool twists. Quick note: Diabolical Box is Pandora's Box in Europe.


Trine

Speaking of clever puzzles, Trine for the PC and PS3 is an indie title with puzzles based on the abilities of any of three playable characters. The game plays totally differently if you play as the knight, archer, or wizard. The game's puzzles all rely on true physics so precisely that you may come up with completely new ways to beat the game that were never intended, which is always awesome. Whether on Steam or the Playstation Network, this is a great game from a small developer, and well worth your time.

I think it's impossible to compare the two... The Wii is great for its local multiplayer--there are countless games that you can play with your family! Nintendo makes a lot of unique games that are exclusive to their consoles... One could argue that their first-party games are better than the Xbox's. The Wii remote takes some getting used to, but when you do, it makes for a very unique way to play! The Xbox 360 is more like a standard console, and that's not a bad thing at all! The Xbox has a simple controller and a better third-party library. Also, the Xbox can handle HD graphics unlike the Wii. I find this console is great for single player games, and for going online to face off against other people from around the world. If I had to choose one over the other, I'd probably choose the Wii, but only for nostalgia and the fact that I've owned my Wii longer. The Xbox is still an incredible console and ranks up there with my other favorites! :)
