Metroid Prime 3 and BioShock fight for title ' best game ' ever?

Dutch gaming-website reports, that with a perfect review for Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, and eight nearly perfect scores for BioShock, both titles will most likely duke it out for the title 'best game' ever. Read more below.

Directly translated from source:

''Two games of the same genre, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption for the Wii and BioShock for the Xbox 360 and PC, could both try to end up in the list of the top 10 best videogames of all time. Both first-person adventures, and both pioniers according to critici, are getting nearly perfect scores.

BioShock has gained eight reviews, and the average is about 9,9 out of 10. According to GameRankings, BioShock needs only two reviews with a rate of 9,7 or higher to conquer the title 'best videogame to date'. BioShock would even beat The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - which has been on top of the list for years.

Metroid Prime's first review came from the North-American magazine Nintendo Power, which gives it a perfect score of 10 out of 10. Nintendo Power didn't even gave The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, nor The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, this rating.''

But they will give a hell of a time against Ocarina of Time and final fantasy 7 which i think are the ones most sites vote as the best games of all time. What is really syrprising is that they both are shooters.

This says it all:

"Metroid Prime's first review came from the North-American magazine Nintendo Power, which gives it a perfect score of 10 out of 10."

One review, of a Nintendo Power magazine...

While Bioshock got multiple 10's from unbiased sources and about what, 15 reviews already, giving it an average of close to a 10.

Be sure that Bioshock will top Metroid Prime 3. Probably also a good game, but not as next gen as Bioshock. You simply can't get it as good as that game on a supercharged Gamecube with the only upgraded thing the controller...

Nor is it exactly fair to Metroid Prime 3.

What makes Metroid Prime 3 a next generation game is its revolutionary control scheme, properly utilizing the Wii remote's IR capabilities, and its incredible advances over what was previously considered possible with the Wii. This improvement is also graphical because the game exhibits a level of detail also unprecedented in Wii games.

Now we all know that BioShock is revolutionary in several ways, and we all know it's a terrific game. Metroid Prime 3, however, is the hardcore game the Wii has absolutely been needing. It is the game that can prove the Wii, and if it gets terrific scores than those "supercharged gamecube" remarks won't really count for anything.

IGN describe it as having the best control in FPS and it will be accessible by more gamers(it will not be rated 18 ) and have huge fan base.I AM LOOKING TO PLAY BIOSHOCK IN 360 AND METROIDE IN WII

I agree with you Mart. Their fighting for best game ever status because Metroid prime for ONE review of 10/10 from a Nintendo Magazine!? pssh I'll wait

"nd if it gets terrific scores than those "supercharged gamecube" remarks won't really count for anything."

Nah those supercharged gamecube comments stay.

Because the hardware, CPU and GPU are just about the Gamecube architecture, just overclocked. Internal doesn't differ that much. That's why the modchips for the Wii were done so soonish after its launch. The protection of the Wii compared to the Gamecube even stayed about the same. Hackers were laughing about the Wii, having the passwords even stayed about the same, only using capitals now or so.

Ofcourse still a fun game can be made. But the controls is not everything. Wii has about the power of the old XBOX 1 now. Real next gen physics, AI etc. just isn't possible with that kind of last gen hardware. Like they do in Bioshock, you can't get it done on the Wii.

from watching the first hour of Metroid Prime, its at least going to average in the 90's. Definitely one of the better games this year.

It's strange, but after watching the first hour of Metroid Corruption i'm more interested in this than in Bioshock. Looks fun!

I think i have to get mii a Wii now.

I can't help but thinking you're a PS3 fanboy in disguise, saying you own a 360 but still don't have it.

Otherwise I'll say you need to get your head checked. Not only for Bioshock, but also for comments on other great stuff for the 360 you keep turning the most negative way possible. Just can't get it.

I mean I don't like the PS3, but also don't buy one. At least not untill games like Bioshock and Gears of War appear and the PS3 costs about 300 Euro. But IF I would get one, I would be convinced its worth and games like Bioshock or real good AAA games I would be positive over.

You just sound weird. Owning a 360, saying this, saying its only FPS while it has turned out to have 17% of FPS.

You keep repeating a strange kind of proSony messages while its not in place, or talking strange on the 360 while you just should give props to it. Some things are personal preference, but others are just plain untrue and dumb.

masterg4053d ago


The Problem is that out of the 83% the remains, 80% is not worth playing.
I love playing shooters on the 360. But thats the only genre that is good.

On my PS3 I play other genres as well. And will be playing even more this fall.

Demon19804053d ago

Hell no, Bioshock is by far a better game and "Nintendo Power" previewed the game lol.
