Metroid Prime 3 Corruption

I just realized I never blogged about the Wii, my very first game console, which I favored for the promise of a full-body experience in game play instead of just your hands.

At first I purchased a ton of games (mostly from eBay, where I saved a bundle), until I realized that it can take quite a long time to play a game through completely, which is the ultimate goal.

At first I'd play a little bit of every game I had, but then I realized that, given the fact that I didn't have that much time to play to begin with, if I ever wanted to complete (beat, in the video game parlance) a game, I needed to concentrate on one at a time.

Metroid Prime 3 Corruption was the chosen one, for several reasons. The sci-fi environment is probably my favorite, the graphics are incredible, and I like first-person shooter and adventure games the most.

This game is simply fantastic. The action is great and grows in difficulty, allowing you to get good at it and beat the bosses (the bad guys) even though they get badder and harder to beat. The story is interesting and the different worlds engaging. Each world even has its own score and lighting/color theme.

The game, in which you control the bounty hunter Samus Aran as she battles the Space Pirates, alternates between looking for the stuff you have to gather and fighting off the enemies that keep trying to stop you from reaching your goal. In the end, it's a great adventure that I'd recommend to anyone who likes this type of game.

I actually liked it so much, I bought Metroid Prime, the previous incarnation, for the GameCube, for which I bought a few other games as well, most notably, those that belong to The Lord of the Rings canon, just to add them to my collection =0)

Looking forward to the next adventure with Samus Aran.
