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] Expand

    Three of the finest FPS experiences from the GameCube days gets the port they deserves in this stellar recollection of the Metroid Prime series.

    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.

    this is the absolute best package in gaming, i mean a slick metal case with awesome artwork and shinny booklets with amazing art and story,this is the absolute best package in gaming, i mean a slick metal case with awesome artwork and shinny booklets with amazing art and story, the games in this collection are the 3 best first person shooters out there, altough you can say they are first person adventures because the exploration is the order of the day and not the shooting. What retro studios has managed to produce is astonishing, graphics, music, design and gameplay-wise. there are no better adventure games than this and a universe so fully realized. Metroid prime trilogy is the best compilation ever. period. Expand

    The Metroid story is one that is close to many hearts. Any time you take something so beloved and mess with it, you are taking a HUGE risk.The Metroid story is one that is close to many hearts. Any time you take something so beloved and mess with it, you are taking a HUGE risk. With the Prime trilogy, they are taking the side scrolling game, and putting it into a 3D FPS game. With the release of the Wii came the motion control, and with the re-release of Metroid Prime 1 & 2, along with 3, all in one package, all with the Prime 3 motion control. While each game was fun alone, the Trilogy package brings it all together, and makes one of the best games of any system. Even if you are not a fan of the Metroid story, this is still a game far worth picking up. 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

Three of the absolute finest games ever created, and now the first two with the highly superior Wii controls.

    If you haven't experienced Prime 1 & 2 before, this is the definitive version to get. It's probably pretty hard to get a copy of the trilogy for a reasonable price now, as it was only available for a limited time, but if you see it, get it! It's definitely worth every penny it costs you, these games are really that amazing.

    I also have to mention the visuals, they are superb in these games. Retro Studios have used an incredibly clever art style, along with the best possible use of the Wii's technical capabilities. The graphics, at least for Prime 3: corruption, have not aged one bit.

    So basically, if you really like action/adventure games and have not yet experienced these three masterpieces, this package is worth almost anything you'll have to pay for it.
