Video game review: Metroid Prime Trilogy Collector’s Edition (Nintendo)Written by Michael Siebenaler | | email@example.com
Great combat continues in this essential Wii exclusive collector’s edition, which includes all three Metroid Prime Wii games in one disc. Updated versions of Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes include the incorporation of new Wii controls complete with three different sensitivity settings for beginners and advanced gamers. The game has great voice talent and hidden items/areas revealing even more characters. This experience delivers even more stunning graphics, which makes a successful series and exciting gameplay.
The navigation/aiming controls take some adjustment time (it helps to have a television that handles light and dark well) and you need quick observation skills if you want the maximum benefit the first time around. The sensitive controls only require minor movements, no huge sweeping motions here (which might save you some property damage it you get deeply involved in the game). Players who want replay time can conquer the game quicker in higher difficulties (try extra hard after completing the game).
The puzzle elements provide a lot of mentally challenging action as well. Inexperienced players (in this series or action/puzzlers in general) will need breaks to avoid frustration. Developers create several memorable cut scenes among the action sequences while showcasing the strong production values. The fast paced foray includes an extras and options menus allow access to special galleries and some cool tools. The replay value stays pretty high as players pick up missing items. This great edition includes artwork, expanded instruction manuals and special tin packaging. Be sure to experience this amazing series before the next Metroid Prime incarnation – Metroid: Other M (****, rated T).
