A superb end to the Metroid Trilogy

Retro Studio has done it again. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is a superb end to the Metroid Trilogy. The first Metroid game made for Wii, Retro really lets you take advantage of the Wii controls to point, shoot, and strafe. The graphics are superb.

The plot feels pretty cinematic, almost a combination between a game and movie. Unlike past Metroids, Samus actually talks to people and controls her ship to fly to other planets! There is a whole cast of characters, including other bounty hunters. Overall, it's probably one of the most intricate Metroid games.

Sometimes this makes means Metroid Prime 3: Corruption doesn't quite have that same feel of loneliness and exploration of other Metroid games. There's nothing about ancient lost civilizations (like the Chozo) or ancient ruins. Indeed, the entire ambience feels a bit less sinister - more like Halo than Metroid.

Also, the game is notably easier than Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. Missions are more straightforward and maps are fairly linear - not too much chance of getting lost. For me, Echoes was a bit too hard, but Corruption might be a bit too easy.

Overall, I wouldn't say this game is better than Metroid Prime (an admittedly high standard), but it is close. Definitely worth getting for any Metroid fans, especially since Metroid: Other M is delayed a few months.
