    Once the conduit comes out and the wii has a proper generic space alien shooting game like halo, yous'll all see the error of your ways.

    Pfft! Scanning > shooting.

    I hated scanning. The descriptions were always so silly as well. There was just no part of the Metroid mythos I could get into, it jus seemed like a silly Manga sci fi story to me.

    As in you orgasm because of it? I'm sure many will agree with you.

    The original Metroid and Zelda efforts stand as monumental triumphs of 2D -> 3D conversion. They stuck every note brilliantly, I can't think of a single other project that was as successful as them for faithful conversion. Obviously the later ones are forced to diverge, but OoT and Prime are perfect 3D incarnations of their 2D forebears.

    And yes, it's time for more 2D.

    It's one of the best storytelling-through-environment things ever though. (Even though I quite often enjoyed the scanning). I'd advice you to go back to it and just skip the scanning then, because the atmosphere of going through the first section in the space pirate bio lab alone is fantastic.
    One of my favourite games ever, up there with Planescape and Deus Ex.
    Took me a long time before I tried it too, but man is it good.

    I loved every minute of the 2D ones, but struggled with the GC controls. This set sounds good though, might tempt me back out of the retro thread :-)

    This is pretty cool, hopefully it will bring more attention to the franchise.

    Funny, I was considering getting MP 2, as I've completed Corruption and I played through most of the original a few years back and loved both. I don't really care if it's a disappointment since I adore the style and atmosphere of the series as a whole, it's an approach more single-player FPSes should take. I actually prefer the 3D Metroids to their 2D predecessors, then again I always found them frustrating and unrewarding.

    That said, I'm sure I have the original MP lying around somewhere, so I'll skip this offer.

    The thing that kept me playing for a while in the Metroid Prime games was the scanning.

    I have to admit that though the universe doesn't feel very all that, the wordplay at work in naming the game was a stroke of genius.

    The scanning kept me hooked in the original. Corruption was my favourite though, genuinely an awesome game from start to finish.

    MP is one of the few games that makes backtracking enjoyable

    Well, that certainly makes up for MP3's awful cover.

    All this time I've owned that game and never played it, here is the reason why. :)

    I hope they have special discs with larger holes in the middle, otherwise I'll end up shreding my cock when I attempt to have sex with the awesomeness that is this game. The box art very much contributes to that awesomeness.

    I just bought Super Metroid to fire through that before this gets released, then I suspect it'll be the only Wii game I'll play for a good while.

    Metroid Prime on the GameCube was a stunner, loved it to bits even though I found the boss encounters initially very difficult. Perseverance paid off though and I found the game deeply rewarding to play and very atmospheric. One of the GameCube's finest games IMO, up there with Zelda: Wind Waker and Resident Evil 4.

    I didn't find the sequel anywhere near as enjoyable as it felt far too similar and I don't think I played beyond a few hours. From memory I got pissed off at some spider fight in an enclosed cage where the changing camera angles were a constant annoyance and just never bothered playing the game again.

    Metroid Prime 3 on the Wii was good but I found the Wiimote controls a bit fiddly and much preferred the GameCube controller to be honest. I didn't think the Wii's control added anything particularly to the game, even when I got used to them, they just seemed like an alternative method of control, neither better nor worst than a conventional controller.

    As such these repackaging of all three games is not something I need to buy, although it's nice to have all three games in one tidy package I suppose. They're good games but anyone who buys the trilogy would be best advised to play the first game first then skip straight to the third.

    PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Wii U, Xbox One, PC (Intel Core i7-4770K, 16 GB, 3 GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780, Windows 8.1 Pro), iPad 4, iPad mini with Retina Display.

    I'd probably agree, I wasn't a fan of Metroid Prime 2. I'll play them in series anyway, but I'd say 2 is my least favourite.

    I'm never usually one to be remotely interested in the box art, but that one is rather nice.

    Oh great, something for me to obsess over. Given I get US versions it's going to be a cunt to replace if I damage it unlike normal games boxes.

    Maybe I should order 3 copies... just to be safe?

    Also, it's going to be a bugger to get rid of my MP 1, 2 & 3 isn't it?

    Add me on Nintendo network! I'm 'Sy' or 'Sy_the_Brit_1982' (I've got US systems, hence 'the_Brit').

    MP2 is still an amazing game, it's just not quite as original as MP1.
