A great end to the prime trilogy

The Good

The music in the game really helps contribute to the mood and feel, whether its a feeling of suspense or action the music excels. The puzzles in the game are great, using your various beams and visors to open doors and examine objects is still fun. The standard difficulty is right on the mark, its easy enough that you'll beat the game but still hard enough that solving a puzzle is satisfying, in addition harder difficulty settings are available. Controlling Samus with the Wii remote and nunchuk works smoothly, shooting and targeting is handled with great precision. The gameplay mix of platforming, puzzling, and shooting is one of the best in the industry.

The Bad

The story is generic it's the standard your the last hope for humanity, its a little annoying but it does not detract from the experience.The replay value is low, once you finish the game theirs not much reason to go back, the unlockable extras such as music tracks that can be played from the main menu and the hyper mode difficulty setting just isn't enough. The lack of online multiplayer is a bit disappointing considering the games length.

The Bottom Line

Metroid Prime 3 is an amazing game and a great end to the metroid prime series, despite having some minor flaws Metroid Prime 3 is still a must buy.
