Even after beating Prime 3, there’s plenty of reasons to go back and try the game again. There’s always going through the game again to get 100% of all necessary items, or trying to beat the game on Hyper Mode difficulty, which is unlocked after beating the game on normal difficulty. Unfortunately, multiplayer mode got the axe this time around, which might either be a blessing or a curse, depending on how you look at it.
This is the title that hardcore gamers have been looking for on the Wii. After suffering through ports and games centered more towards casual players, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is a breath of fresh air on the Wii even if it builds-on a lot of past Metroid titles. Future Wii games will likely surpass this one, but Metroid Prime 3 might be the Wii’s Gears of War - the game that opens the gates to a flood of great titles on Nintendo’s newest console. We can only hope that’s the case.
Pros: The best-looking game on the Wii to date. Controls are well-done and adjustable to different levels of sensitivity, though sometimes controls are gimmicky. New power-ups add depth to the game’s combat and puzzles. A solid, polished title all around.
Cons: The stupid fetch quest at the end of the game. No multiplayer.
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is rated T (Teen) by the ESRB for Animated Blood and Violence.
