Checked IGN and they said "Best game for Wii".... better than zelda?


I wasnt a huge fan of prime 1 but i am gonna rent this, a 9.5 is a great score and supposedly the wii mote really makes that game great.

It's great so far. Make sure you switch to Advanced mode before you begin the game or else you'll be using lock-on, which is gay. I would say it's better than Twilight Princess for sure.

You can't compare it to Zelda. They are two diffrent types of games. I like both types, but like Zelda better. Any Zelda game is my happy place.

I'm still not sure if I'll be picking this up or not. I've never really been an FPS fan.

I know they're two different games i was just surprised by the "best wii game" and the high score.

And mark it really isnt a traditional fps, I will rent this and then decide if i shall buy it, I still need to get strikers

Prime is more of a first-person-adventure game.

i am a huge fan of the zelda series, except the one for the wii.

It just didn't do it for me. The whole wolf thing was slightly gay.

I am picking up prime 3 soon. Cant wait!

Its not available at my gamecrazy till tomorrow... :icon_mad:

Fucking shit, I still have to finish the first two. I'm still stuck on that Omega Pirate cunt in the first Prime, and I don't think I've even booted up the sequel.

Just finished Super Metroid and Metroid Prime 1(replayed it to get used to the first person). I looked all over today for it but to no avail. I will be getting it tomorrow! I just hope it isn't like Prime 2, that was just doing the same thing over and over again and totally fucking sucked.

Wal-Mart might have it at midnight. Or other stores, Wal-Mart is the only place in my town that's open 24 hours, that sells that kind of stuff.

Getting rave reviews so far.
Saying it's redefining console shooters (Though it IS an FPA)
Game Trailers said you won't want to use a joy-stick ever again for a shooter after you play this.

Need advice.

Tomorrow at noon eastern time, I will be going to BestBuy. Should I get Metroid then, or wait till the 31st? The reason for the wait is I have a thing for 10 percent off, but it don't start till the 31st. What would you do?

Now now, the only reason I recommend it is because all Metroid games are incredible by default :action-sm

The controls really make me want 1) Retro to make an original FPS for Wii or 2) have a third party rip off the control scheme and make a good FPS with it.

10 hours in, can't stop playing it. It's really, really good. Wonder why Gamespot gave it an 8.5.

because they try to keep it honest. same reason they gave twilight princess an 8.9. sure the game might be good, but just because its your favorite franchise(zelda, final fantasy, metroid) doesnt mean its immune to flaws

Yes but this game is obviously not an 8.5. I'm not saying it because I love Metroid...in fact, I'm not a HUGE fan of the Prime games to begin with, just the 2D ones.

They gave Bioshock a 9.0 when most well known sites were rating 9.5 and above. Methinks they're just trying to standout.

The only flaw I can see is the door opening loading time. It takes about 5 seconds for some doors to open. This game rocks! I really want to play more but the wife wants to play Carnival Games. At least she goes to bed at 8pm.
