  • Summary: Metroid Prime 3: Corruption set a new standard for first-person motion controls in video games. Now it’s bringing those controls to the rest of the celebrated series, allowing players to experience the entire Metroid Prime story arc with the precision of the Wii Remote. Metroid PrimeMetroid Prime 3: Corruption set a new standard for first-person motion controls in video games. Now it’s bringing those controls to the rest of the celebrated series, allowing players to experience the entire Metroid Prime story arc with the precision of the Wii Remote. Metroid Prime Trilogy, is a three-game collection for the Wii console that bundles all three landmark Metroid Prime games onto one disc and revamps the first two installments with intuitive Wii Remote controls, wide-screen presentation and other enhancements. Each game maintains its original storyline and settings, but now Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes let players use their Wii Remote to aim with precision as heroine Samus Aran. Based on the breakthrough control system that debuted in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, these new Wii controls bring an entirely new level of immersion and freedom to these milestone games. Players can access the game they want from a unified main menu that ties together all three adventures. Through a new unlockables system, players can gain access to in-game rewards such as music and artwork by accomplishing objectives across all three games. [Nintendo] Collapse

    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. The bargain of the century and a great opportunity to visit a brilliant series. [Sept 2009, p.79]
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Metroid Prime Trilogy is an offer you can't refuse: a must-buy for the most devoted fans and for anyone who hasn't yet related with one of the most astonishing sagas in the whole gaming universe, but at the same time an avoidable compilation for those who have already played the three masterpieces.

Change A to jump and B to fire and also set to pro mode as this allows you to lock on to a target and shoot something else and still shoot at the lock on target if you wish. This is also hardly a childish game and i'd never deprive anyone of experiencing such a great series.Fantastic sci-fi story. Expand

    Metroid Prime remains as stellar a Trilogy as any ever in gaming history. This is the first FPS game I have ever loved and still a joy toMetroid Prime remains as stellar a Trilogy as any ever in gaming history. This is the first FPS game I have ever loved and still a joy to play. Retro Studios is a masterclass in recreating the feel of classic Metroid into a 3D world. The controls are PERFECT and the challenge is great. I was able to pick up this awesome package brand new but it is limited to find. Find it! The best FPS on Wii and any other sytstem in my humble opinion. Samus remains the most badass bounty hunter in gaming history. And this is the most perfect package and value I've ever seen. Expand

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! Expand

I personally think the Metroid Prime Trilogy is heavily under-rated. Three games that all got very good ratings bundled into one box. This deserves to rule over you all. Definitely the best deal in gaming since The Orange Box. Expand

I enjoyed this game SO MUCH. The experience i had changed my view of video games vastly. The reason I liked this game so much was the following (main reasons): The soundtrack. Oh my god the soundtrack. The music and sound effects to this game were outstanding. The voice acting was also spectacular. Giving me an eerie feeling and making a strong impact on the story. The first game included: Metroid Prime. 10/10. best one of the 3 included. It was the best metroid experience I've ever had, and I've loved this game for about 3-4 years now, and of all the ones I've played this one was the best. The second game included: Metroid Prime 2, Echoes. Very fun. Included only a few suit upgrades, which i won't spoil here (because i don't want spoilers in my review) but the game was amazing. It started with some really great exploring, and delved deep into a (quite terrifying) story. The third (and easiest): Metroid prime 3: Corruption. Despite being very easy to complete, it was still really fun to experience. I loved the final boss fight. (also all the leviathan fights leading up to it!!) The game was great, especially with the new feature, which was being able to interact with your environments in ways like pressing numbers on a keypad to using your arm cannon to weld broken circuitry. Completed it 100%. Expand
