Metroid Prime Trilogy :: Wii Game Review
The ultimate video game trilogy is now available in a single package and updated for next gen consoles! How does Metroid Prime stand against the test of time?
Almost everything about Metroid Prime Trilogy set screams epic. From the beautiful packaging of the game to the first time you hear those classic five music notes as Samus appears, you can just feel your skin tingling and blood pumping whenever you play.
First Person Metroid Shooter
While the third Metroid Prime game, Corruption, was made for the Wii, the first two were made for the Gamecube and have been updated for the Wii. This includes better graphics and the ability to use the Wiimote pointer to control your shooting. This makes the, already good games from before, even better as the action sequences and shoot outs become more enjoyable.
The first game of the trilogy, Metroid Prime, is probably the best game out of the three. It has a good combination of exploration and action. The second game, Echoes, has a lot of exploration, with the light and dark worlds available. Corruption, on the other hand, has a lot of action and shooting, since it was made with the Wiimote's accurate targetting in mind.
Worth Another Play?
The only real complaints about the games is the lack of multi-player. However, all three Metroid Prime games were amazing and fun to play the first time around. It is definitely worthwhile to sell in your old Metroid Prime games for this trilogy set.
All three games have been updated to include achievements. By doing specific things, you earn tokens that can be used to unlock concept art, game music, and more. And if you have never played the original Metroid Prime games, you owe it to yourself to play them now. Highly recommended.
