Metroid ‘unlike anything experienced’ in games

Just what does the Associated Press, the world’s largest news service, have to say about Metroid Prime 3? The tactile sensation of flicking the nunchuk to throw a grapple beam and yank something off a wall is unlike anything I’ve experienced before in a video game. Instead of tapping a button to pull a lever, simply twist and move your hand around to pull it, like you would in the real...

Dual thumbsticks are for the birds, Metroid Prime 3 delivers

Just got my mitts on Metroid Prime 3 this morning: in a word, engrossing. Prime 3 controls feel like butter. Having hated them before, I now officially loathe dual thumbsticks when it comes to console shooters. The Wii Remote works so well, I literally remain on the edge of my seat because the action is so engaging.

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption hits stores

As you can see from the man to the right, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is finally here. One of the three highly anticipated AAA titles is now in our grubby, hardcore wanting hands. We had to wait an extra 9 months, but it looks like it was well worth the wait. Polished graphics, superior controls, and classic gameplay, what more could you ask for? But if for some strange reason you’re deciding to...

Nintendo: We’re ignoring someone? Really?

IGN just blew the doors off of the airlock and bestowed a 9.5 Incredible rating on Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. A four page review accompanies said rating. I fully expect every other “media outlets” out there to do the same in the coming days and weeks. But something has been tickling the back of my mind today, and I can’t quite place it. Something about Nintendo ignoring a certa...

Nintendo Power calls Metroid 3 “Incorruptible”

From the 10/10 review… Since its introduction, gamers have seen great potential in the Wii remote as a natural controller for first-person action games. But while several titles have pulled off the method adequately, Corruption is the first that doesn’t leave any room for you to consider whether it would be better with a traditional controller…. the system works impeccably…...

Crowd sourcing on display in new Metroid commercial

I love when large groups of people watch me play games. It’s like on The Last Starfighter when the entire trailer park community cheers on Alex (1:03 in) when breaking the highest Starfighter score.

Metroid Prime Trilogy: The intros

Let’s take a look back to when you booted up Metroid Prime for the first time. You might of had doubts that Nintendo would be able to convert the series into the third dimension. But when the opening cinematic began showing a shaky video feed of a modernized metroid while accompanied by an even eerier, but epic soundtrack….you knew that this was going to be good. The introduction to a ...

Metroid 3: Darker, more mysterious, and the marketing’s just fine

Tycho over at Penny Arcade sums it up nicely: I keep hearing that Metroid Prime 3: Corruption isn’t being promoted very well, but the person saying this always seems to know about it, and then when people share this complaint in the thread those people also seem to be “in the know.” It ships on the twenty-seventh of August, if you weren’t aware – but since you almost ...

What happens to Metroid Channel after the game launches?

A quick question… When Metroid Prime 3: Corruption launches next week, what is going to happen with the preview channel? I have a few ideas kicking around in my head, but I wanted to hear what you guys thought. Something has to happen, right? The preview is a real live Channel on the Wii’s menu screen. Are we all just going to delete it when the game launches? I think not. What’s...

Metroid Prime 3 gets its first perfect score

The upcoming issue of Nintendo Power allegedly gives Metroid Prime 3 a perfect 10/10 score based on the following: First Wii game that you couldn’t confuse graphically with last-gen Great artwork Incredible feeling of immersion Flawless level design; tons of freedom to explore but you always have the feeling that you’re at the right place at the right time. Sounds like the game does a ...
