Best looking game on Wii, but those screens give it a little too much credit, due to the small size.

Even though I have like 4 games now going unfinished I'm considering starting Corruption on Hypermode... not the best Prime, but what an enjoyable experience.

Actually i think it maybe looks even better in person because those pics don't really capture the bloom lighting very well.

Well those screens give you an impression of unreal sharpness and make them textures look like from GeoW.

Are those screens from PAL or US-version? Could the PAL-version be played in 50hz?? Echoes demanded a TV supporting 60hz.

The textures look pretty much the same on my tv. It's a great looking game.

Sorry, i meant that the game didnt look that good on my Sony bravia with component 480p cables.

I assume CRT with progressinve scan should look better than LCD setups.

just beat the game with the special ending you get when you collect at least 75% of the pickups.

how is this ending special?

i just saw the federation escape when phaaze blows up. they think samus doesnt make it thru but she does and signals "mission complete" and then goes away. then they show her sitting at sky town thinking about her friends/partners who were corrupted and ultimately she had to kill. then the credits start rolling.

is that the special ending?

is the 100% complete special ending worth it?

Its mere seconds of footage

Highlight if you want to know: After Samus' ship leaves the camera pans down to another ship that had been waiting in orbit, observing her. Its wings take on a more aggressive shape and it pursue's Samus into the stars... the end.

Its nice to have 100% though. And if you visit the Chozo Observatory its not too hard in this game either.

Has there been any confirmation on who it is? A lot of people have suggested Sylux.

My guess it's a teaser for Metroid Prime Hunters Wii

No more Metroid games from Retro that's for sure.

Oh god i hope not.

Anyway, i came across two things today:

(1) In my replay of Corruption (god the game is good), I noticed that after exiting the Crashed GFS in Bryyo (right after activating the satelite), you see Rundus in the distance, around the cliffs of Bryyo, flying on ice. Never noticed that the first time around. I love all the hints given to Rundus' activities - the frozen creatures, the ice bridges, etc.

(2) Metroid Metal have a Metroid Prime 3 Title Screen/Bryyo theme. Awesome stuff.

Wow, nice screens.

Just like all the other Prime games though, it only truly shines in motion. I think it's nearly equal to Galaxy in looks on Wii.

Ha, funny.

Played the game again a few days back and I'm still impressed by it. To be really honest, after I completed the game the first time I was kind of torn. Allthough its Metroid, the new structure of exploring several planets instead of exploring one big and coherent planet was indeed something else, but it felt weird at first. After a while I just got used to it. What I did find disturbing are the bloody loading times. I mean, MP 1 and 2 were absolutely amazing because of the smooth loading times, but in Corruption I had to wait for 25 seconds at a few times. Unacceptable. And the constant return of defeated enemies got on my nerves.

The controlls are superb, but I wished they implementend a quickturn option. The rest was amazing, especialy in Advance. The art was topnotch as always (with Skytown, which is pretty awesome. I like the Pirate Homeworld to) The bosses were pretty fun to, allthough they never were a real threat. Omega Ridley is proof of this. The battle in Prime 1 was much harder and still is more of a challenge. I liked the inclusion of Samus's gunship in mission pretty funny. Just fun to see.

Short version: Prime 3 is a excelent game. Or explained in Internet rabbel:

Prime 1 >>> Prime 3 >>> Prime 2

I just started playing it again. Bombed the Leviathan in Skytown and I just have to go kick some boss ass.

This game is truly incredible. Prime is still my favorite game ever, but Corruption is just as flawless so far, especially the controls. That kind of freedom is what makes the Wii such a great machine.

But I strongly think this indicates a wiiware sequel. Retro has moved on and a 2d ds game shouldve happened by now if there was any serious intention to do so.

Out of interest, did anyone else notice the husk (outer shell) of Metroid Prime in the last room on Phaaze before you face Dark Samus? I thought that was such awesome fan service.

I noticed it. It kind of confirmed that Metroid Prime wasn't actually anything special, but was in fact just the natural evolution of a phazon-exposed Metroid.

Man seriously, I need to go through and play them. I think Prime might have been one of the best resurrections of last gen, if not the best, and it carried over so incredibly well to the Wii. So far Prime 3 is my game of the generation, by far.

It's in the same room as the infant Leviathan. It's in pieces, scattered around the room. The organic structures anchoring the Leviathan womb are also reminiscent of structures seen in Metroid Prime's lair in the Impact Crater Core.

It's cool fan-service because it visually establishes that Tallon IV would have become another Phaaze without Samus' intervention.

Well, this is how I see it with the Leviathan Seeds. The Metroid Prime Husks on Phaaze show that Metroid Prime was a natural Phazon-induced evolution of a Metroid. It seems like the Seeds almost actively look for a "host" on whatever planet it crashes on. Metroid Prime on Tallon IV, Mogenar on Bryyo, Helios on Elysia, and Ridley on the Pirate Homeworld.

Yup. Awesome fan-service. I would take a photo but i would have to start a whole new game again, and I just finished a replay. :lol

Exactly. It looks for that host in order to protect the core.
