YOU PLAY NOW!!! Metroid Prime 3

It is now time for a recommendation from me, the almighty Metal_Kitty666. I shall be recommending the Game Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Now, Should You buy this game? Short answer, yes, long answer, YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES.

First Thing's First

   This is probably, in my opinion, the best game ever. Even better than the previous Metroid games, which doesn't seem possible. If you have a Wii, get this game. If you don't have a Wii, sell your mother buy a Wii, sell your Dog, buy Metroid Prime 3. You got it? Good, I will wait while you do that.



WHAT DID I TELL YA? It's Awesome right?

   I guess it's time to review this game, I will tell you why this game is worth playing and just some basic info about it.


   First of all, the story is exactly what you expect out of a metroid Prime game, It is very solid and well made. It first starts off as our protagonist Samus Aran, the greatest heroin in a video game since... Samus, from super metroid, And she has been called by the Galactic Federation, along with three other bounty hunters, to investigate a space pirate attack on a near by planet. Samus fights Ridley yada yada yada, makes her way to the main control room, along with the other bounty hunters, and guess who is there? The Metroid prime, aka. Dark Samus, aka. The Metroid Prime. Well, Dark samus attacks the bounty hunters and they go unconcious for awhile, they all wake up days later, Samus much later than the rest, and she discovers that she absorbed the phazon from Dark Samus' attack and is now wearing a suit, the PED suit which uses the phazon energy. that is all the story that I am telling you, NO SPOILERS!!!


  The gameplay in this game is very solid, it exploits the Wii's motion controls perfectly without relying on them fully. I love the pacing in this game, it builds itself up really well. Something I find a great improvement is that you don't have to scan everything in the universe in order to 100% the game, it works more like Super Metroid in this regard, it's about the powerups you pick up not the scans, which is a lot less frustrating. Another thing that is interesting is that, you cannot switch between weapons, once you get a weapon that is what you are using, this is also similar to older Metroid games, at first I didn't like this but it really didn't take away from the game at all. Also, it still has the exploration element in it which is what needs to be in a Metroid game.


The graphics in this game are, HOLY SHIT AWESOME, that is really all I can say about them. One of the best looking games I have ever seen, especially on the Wii. Anyone who says the Wii needs HD obviously has never seen this game. Now, the music is very typical for a Prime game, it fits the mood and levels perfectly and are catchy as well, very well composed I love it. Another impressive visual aspect are the environments, and backgrounds. They are breathtaking, they are so pretty I love just stopping in that game just to look at the environment.

So, that is my unbias review of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. If you still don't think you should buy this game, then you are really missing out. Just ask anyone who has played this game and they will say it is a great game.

I leave you with three grammatically incorrect words, U PLAY NOW!!!

Certainly lacking in the word quantity department, but I certainly can't fault your enthusiasm. You have your point, and you illustrate it.

Though I like your Bikini Zombie review a little more.

I liked Prime 3 but I considered it a step backwards compared to the previous two. The music was beautiful and the environments looked great. The visual design of the 'sky world' was fantastic. Unfortunately a lot of the time you were inside the various compounds/metal boxes rather than exploring said worlds. I found the level design lacking, the boss fights very forgettable (especially the entire final segment. Disappointing way to end the trilogy) and I felt the lack of weapon swapping did detract. The corruption element didn't add anything and the 'press A to win' parts were just stupid. It also felt the least 'metroid' out of the prime games (not counting hunters or pinball). This coming from someone who likes Fusion the best out of the 2D entries. Still, it -was- fun to play and by no means a bad game. Controls were surprisingly good. Only complaint with them was the annoying switches and levers you had to move the Wii mote around to use. That wasn't immersive, innovative or anything bar annoying.
