Metroid Prime 3: Finally

3 Weeks ago, I walked into a Walmart with just a little to much cash in my pocket. Just a day earlier a new Wii game had come out called “Metroid Prime 3: Corruption” and sure enough, it was there, on the shelf.

I bought it.

Now, I’m a gamer who believes that you should play games like Metroid Prime 3: Corruption in multi-hour blocks. Therefore, when I got home that night, I didn’t even think about putting it in my Wii. In fact, it wasn’t until today, 3 weeks later, that I even took the time to put it in my system.

I have to admit, I’m still not sure I’m in love with it. The controls are good, with a slight adjustment factor to get used to pointing to shoot. I do like the interaction required to make use of things like the grappling hook and the maintenance locks. But, there’s something that’s missing.

Now realizing I never played Metroid Prime 2, and I wasn’t a big fan of Hunters… I have to admit, this was a rather different change in what I was used to. The one thing I loved about Metroid Prime (the original), that I have yet to find in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is the immense organic worlds… Maybe I’m just not far enough in, but man, I am hoping to see something as organic as that was.

I’m also not a big fan of the talking people. I like reading writing on the wall… Taking the time to scan everything around me… So far I’ve felt “rushed” into combat. Now I know Metroid Prime 3: Corruption kind of started like that, but it was a relatively short training sequence.

In any case, its shaping up to be a solid game so far. I’m hoping that I can find more time to play every day now until I’m done with it… But knowing me… I probably won’t play the Planet Byron until sometime next month.

In other news, the new computer setup is running clean… No more big changes though to write about.
