  1. 100
    An absolutely stunning collection of games that no self-respecting gamer should be without; Metroid Prime Trilogy is a landmark achievement in gaming that deserves to be played and enjoyed on the Wii in its ultimate form.
  2. 100
    With three brilliant games that challenge and exhilarate the player, the Metroid Prime Trilogy package is a masterpiece filled with with pristine graphics, an in-depth storyline, and non-stop exploration and action .
  3. If you’ve passed on the Prime series until now, your excuses for doing so have dwindled considerably.
  4. Metroid Prime Trilogy is simply a must for all those who feel passionate about video games and own a Wii. Each one, separately, has the necessary quality to justify the given rating, and together there’s no room for argument.
  5. Metroid Prime Trilogy is a must-own compilation for fans of the series and newcomers alike. All three of the games are still immensely fun, and the various updates made to the first two games make them even more enjoyable.
  6. 100
    Truly, every Wii gamer should take a look at this package. Each game is good enough to stand alone for the asking price – packaging all three together was a rare and wonderful move on Nintendo’s part.
  7. 100
    Three of the finest FPS experiences from the GameCube days gets the port they deserves in this stellar recollection of the Metroid Prime series.
  8. There are not many games for the Nintendo Wii with this much overall value packed into one tight package. All three games are amazing even if a couple of them are a few years old. This is a must buy for Wii owners who own any of the games and certainly a must buy for those gamers who have yet to dive into the Metroid Prime universe.
  9. If you own a Wii, then you need to own the Metroid Prime Trilogy.
  10. They are three games of indisputable quality, adding 80 hours of gameplay, in a single disc and with some new features.. This is hands down one of the most interesting packages in the market, and a good example of the good health of some classics of the past generation.
  11. 95
    If, by some lucky twist of fate, you fall into the category of Wii owners who have never played any of the Prime games before, Nintendo has with Trilogy delivered you a box set of holy proportions. For a bargain price, you will receive 80-plus hours of the best adventuring found on any home consoles in a decade.
  12. This is about as well crafted as videogames get.
  13. A must-buy for newcomers to the series and worth another go if you've played them before. [Nov 2009, p.78]
  14. The bargain of the century and a great opportunity to visit a brilliant series. [Sept 2009, p.79]
  15. Metroid Prime Trilogy is a must-own compilation for fans of the series and newcomers alike.
  16. When you consider the sheer volume of gameplay and the quality and uniqueness of the experience, Metroid Prime Trilogy is one heck of a value.
  17. Whether you're looking to fill the Metroid void until Other M arrives, or you're just wondering what all the futuristic female bounty-hunting fuss is about, this content rich offering is not to be missed.
  18. 92
    While Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is the only episode native to the Wii, and significantly more tuned to Wii Remote and Nunchuk interaction as a result, there's no denying the overall pedigree created as a result of tweaking and attaching the original Metroid Prime and its Echoes sequel.
  19. There's a seriously massive amount of gameplay per pound here. [Oct 2009, p.58]
  20. Even if you already have all three parts of the story, you should think about a re-buy. This is one of the best action games for the Wii.
  21. Laid end-to-end, you're looking at maybe as much as 100 hours of top-quality entertainment in Metroid Prime Trilogy. Although it's hardly been spoken of as a high-priority release by Nintendo, this could well be the finest single product it has released for the Wii. For all its quirks, Metroid Prime remains a landmark action series, and as such, owning it ought to be mandatory.
  22. Three outstanding games (two of which are vastly enhanced with dead-on motion controls) available for the price of one. We can’t imagine a better deal on Wii this year.
  23. If you grew tired of these games years ago, then move along. But if you love Metroid and want to experience the first two adventures with more user friendly controls, happily indulge in this creature blasting, planet hopping trilogy.
  24. Metroid Prime Trilogy bundles three of the best games ever made. This trilogy belongs in the collection of every Nintendo-fan, so if you haven’t started on it yet, this collection for the Wii is a good place to start. The new controller-options don’t add enough to make people who are already in possession of the original games buy this Trilogy again though.
  25. The first two entries in the Metroid Prime saga proved to naysayers that bringing the Metroid franchise to life in the third dimension was possible, and in doing so developer Retro Studios created the best action adventures to grace the now defunct Gamecube. The third and final installment in the series threw Wii motion controls into the mix. With Metroid Prime Trilogy we're offered the definite version of the series where all three titles now boast Wii controls, 480p resolution and widescreen support. You won't get more bang for your buck on the Wii than this.
  26. Pick a great, dramatic, imaginative, amusing action game with splendid visual. Now multiply it three times and you get a box with Metroid Prime Trilogy. Wiimote excellence! [Oct 2009]
  27. As usual the new play controls add little, but this is still a good deal for such classic games.
  28. The three games included on this collection are timeless classics. If you've not played them yet, you really should do it now.
  29. Once again, Nintendo has proven they know how to pay homage to both their hardcore fans and core franchises that make them who they are. This is evident with the recently released Metroid Prime Trilogy which offers three highly regarded titles at the same price point as any other single Wii game making it a tremendous value.
  30. The addition of this control system for the first two titles makes me wish I could go back in time and experience them for the first time all over again. Those who haven’t already are lucky ­indeed.
  31. All three Metroid Prime games in one box, for 50 bucks, pumped through the wide-screen framing of the Wii and controlling with its Remote. You make the call.
  32. The only real obstacle in determining whether or not you should get Metroid Prime: Trilogy is if you are currently an owner of both of the GameCube titles and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption on the Wii.
  33. 90
    Prime is great, Echoes is great, Corruption is great, and in this release gamers have been given a real treat.
  34. 90
    So for your money you’re getting one of the best games of the last generation, a dark and difficult sequel, and that most uncommon of beasts, a “hardcore” Wii game.
  35. Metroid Prime Trilogy turns out to be one of the greatest choices of Nintendo Wii. Three games in just one package for less than 50€ that grants more than 100h of gameplay, a stunning graphic engine and, what's more important, a literaturesque way to explain the story of Samus Aran, her beginnings and everything else. A must-have no matter what anyone says.
  36. It's indispensable for collectors and recommended to those who are new to the series. For those who already know Metroid Prime, it's worth to check it out.
  37. Metroid Prime: Trilogy contains the kind of games you want to be remade. Three fantastic games in one pack, with the new way of controller them and with some neat extra’s. It’s a deal you don’t want to miss.
  38. One of the greatest collection ever made.
  39. Wii-Owners can't miss the chance to buy three glorious masterpieces in a single hit.
  40. 90
    The Metroid Prime series was pretty fantastic on its own, and now that all three titles have been brought together with some much-appreciated control improvements, it's one of the best titles (and certainly one of the best values) on the Wii. The new controls really do provide a good excuse for fans to double-dip.
  41. 89
    Now that the trilogy has been brought together, there is no more excuse not to try it out. You’ll have to get used to the controls, but considering the technical improvements – shorter loading times – you will soon be on a wondrous Metroid Prime adventure. Make sure to have a clock nearby, because this game will make you lose track of time.
  42. Three excellent games on one disc means you'll be playing Metroid for tens of hours. On the downside, bonus content is non-existent, leaving the package feeling a bit underwhelming for veterans of the series.
  43. Three is the magic number: The incredible world of Metroid returns in a single disk with 16:9 and other interesting extra, but the package is a little thin for collectors.

Forget the hype of Halo, or Killzone, this is real gaming. I'm sick and tired of games' fates being decided by incompetent reviewers. This fact this doesn't have a perfect score is criminally disgusting. I wonder what a Halo Trilogy would get? This IS the greatest series of First Person Shooters ever made, the standard has been set and any intelligent gamer is still waiting for it to be broken 8 yrs later. Retro, we salute you!
