Samus faces a true test of the Wii's capabilities in the epic conclusion to the Prime trilogy.
It's kinda funny how GameTrailer posted both preview and review of Metroid 3 in less than 2 hours!
Wii congrats with this AAA title!
According to Metacritics, considering score of 90 or more:
Wii: 3 games: Zelda, RE4 and Metroid Prime 3.
PS3: Only Oblivion.
360: 8 games.
Looks like Sony is doomed. What else is new. And look how some slave gave a disagree! he disagrees with reality? no AAA on ps3. deal with it, zombies.
Damn!!! MP3 is getting around the same scores as Bioshock at this rate.
True Wii AAA!!!
I don't think so. BioShock started with tons of perfect 10s and if it wasn't for stupid GameSpot and their 9/10, it would have beatend Zelda OoT.
Still, Metroid is gonna be one of the best games of 2007 and personally, I think it deserves high scores it's getting. For now, we have 2 GOTY worthy games reviewed: Metroid Prime 3 and BioShock.
I was just on GT a lil while ago and they only had the preview up, so I wasnt goin to check 4 the review til later. Another great Review.
Thanks, I was at GT and only saw the preview. Hit the refresh and suddenly, a review was right above the preview!
It must be the first time that a single site publishes review and preview of one game so close to each other.
I might have a game to buy for my wii since zelda which isnt a party game.
This will pass me over till mario kart as thats really the only game which i know will be awesome for years to come
Remember Edge also gave Bioshock a glorious 8 out of 10.
seeing the first hour of the game that was leaked by GR I was convinced it was going to get review scores like this
This game should sell like hot cakes.
This would be a great bundle game for EB bundles.
Samus can kick Master Chief's arse.
They already reviewed Halo 3... or you are just being a fanboy?
I think they were too generious rating this game. Not that they shouldn't have given the rate they gave it. But at least not mention the issues the game have. They mentioned how the game had some framerate issues, some control issues, visual problems with some of the monsters blending with the sky, etc... They had a but.. pretty much for everything. I wonder what's the policy for rating wii games. For PS3 games and XBox 360 games they seing to be tougher...
Here is how I think they rate it.
Visual Problems 10 - 0.1
Control Issues 10 - 0.1
Frame Rate issues 10 - 0.1
Game Length 10 - 0.1
Results = 9.6/10
If this would be an xbox 360 or PS3 game this game would get a -0.5 or -1.0 for each issue they mentioned. Giving the game a 6.0 or a 8.0/10. I am not complaining about the rating... it's just that they seem to have a different policy for wii games. Specially when it comes to graphics. Sometimes they give PS3/360 games a low score on graphics since they compared them with games like Gears... but then the wii gets a perfect score on graphics.... shouldn't they be comparing the wii in terms or graphics to xbox 360/PS3 games... instead of having a different standard for each console?
i don't care.. fanboys judge if a game it's gonna be an AAA game by some persons reviews, bottom line, the wii is selling like crack withouth AAA titles... i mean wiisports??
bottom line i think consoles sell more with adventure games than with an awesome fps.. sites may give Heavenly Sword lest say an 8.5 and uncharted judging by previews reviews it's not gonna get anything better than an 8.8, most reviewers are expecting some crazy experience and if they don't feel it in 4 hours they review the game they trash it..
i strongly think that if sony puts a video of uncharted drake's fortune by the holidays on the model ps3's at walmart and target and bestbuy and all those places.. ps3's will seel more because of the adventure plus awesome graphics combo, and it would be the same for heavently sword..
wheter someone gives it an 7.0 review it won't matter to the average consumer once he sees the game and plays it..
good for wii owners thou.. i'm glad that just like with the ps3 games are coming.. if down the road i happen to pick up a wii i think their library will be pretty appealing if they keep it up like this
What about BioShock's 20 hr length (the same as MP3, which you call short), easiness and those frame rate stutters? By your logic EVERYONE should have given that game an 8.5.
But you and I both know it deserves way higher than that. Why? Because the problems are heavily outweighed by the advantages. This game has the greatest FPS control of any console, best Wii graphics to date, it's the best title of the Metroid Prime series; and yet you want to discard that possibility because of some really, really minor hiccups.
This is an amazing Wii title, and it deserves every high score it gets. This is the kind of game that quiets those that hate the Wii. Try playing it and then tell us if you think it deserves an 8.0.
There wasnt an issue of the monsters blending in to the background. They said that the "target crosshair" occasionally blends in the background making it difficult to aim at monsters. Its funny how people are already critcizing the rating before THEY HAVE EVEN PLAYED IT. Some of you haters are knockin it just bcuz u have no plans on playing and thats cool. continue to try and eat food that isnt on your plate and see how well that works out for you. Its also interesting to see how some people immediately begain to question the rating system for Wii. Last i checked there were'nt very many Will games above 8.5 from IGN or any other site for that matter. MP3 is obviously worthy of it reviews, just as Bioshock was worthy of all its Awsome reviews and shame on any one who rated it less than a 9.
But back to the issue at hand. The Wii is perfectly capable of running extremely high quality software and Nintendo is one of the best there is when it comes to brilliant games. MP3 and Galaxy will show just that. I would understand if IGN rated it a 10, you would have a reason to cry foul. Fact is, the complaints they(IGN) did have with MP3 did very little to take away from the overall experience. So i dont see what the issue is aside from people being haters. But thats their problem, not mine. Its Prime Time BABY!!!
Anyone that takes this over Bioshock makes me sad. What is it with journalists and their minimized standards for Wii games?
It saddens me that you would automatically assume that anything Nintendo would be subpar to other offerings out there before even playing it. I would think that someone who makes decent comments would be more open-minded.
I haven't played Bioshock or MP3 yet so I will reserve judgment until I play BOTH of them. And the fact that neither has online multiplayer doesn't bother me one bit.
You're going to be missing out on one of the greatest gameplay experiences of the year.
Anyone that immediately assumes that Wii games suck even though the critical average is very high makes me sad. What is it with fanboys and their hatred for Wii games?
Haha, many people are like that...It'll be just one thing less for them to play...seems like many of nintendo published games are amazing, maybe other companies will learn from what retro was able to do with what they had, and make better games. I'm pissed that I don't have the money to buy it now. :| maybe I'll babysit this weekend or something.
He wants to be TheMart so bad. TheMart is irritating in a funny and amusing kind of way. He knows how to press people buttons. But you... you just suck ballz. A real dic rider you are.. Madam!
Try to be urself, U are not TheMart Mam. TheMart is like the Skipper and ur ass is Gilligan or maybe Lovey Howell seeing as tho u all on the next man nutz. Pussienboots is a name more suitable for a dudette like u.
Normally I dont do this but someone needed to so y not me.
MP3 is way much better than Bioshock.
I can't wait to play this game.
I played Metroid ever since it was release for NES back in the old days.
Nintendo Metroid Prime is so awesome cool.
9.6/10 is a awesome score.
I give 9.6 too.
I just addicted to this game. No way!!
Or just an MS/Sony fanboy who hates Nintendo and makes an alternate account?
Because if the latter is true, that's pretty lame.
If the former is true, welcome to N4G buddy!
What more is there to the game...any deathmatch, adventure mode or something?
