    Buy it
    Because of the unlockables it makes the game longer. And if you take your time it's a long game anyways. Some puzzles are difficult too :)

    Yes the game is worth getting.
    It was one of the better Wii games of 2007 and was also my first Metroid game.

    ehhh i'd actually consider renting it first. mp3 was my first metroid game as well, yet it only took me about 2 weeks to beat (2 to 3 hours a day). plus, there's no split screen or online multiplayer whatsoever, so i really don't consider it having much replay value. metroid does indeed have some spiffy graphics and controls, but the game mechanics and storyline aren't for everyone.

    so yeah, rent it first to see if you like.

    but it really does have nice graphics and controlls
    but i suggest renting it first ;]]

    Personally, I loved it, but I had played the previous two installments. I hear people say it's not for everyone which is true. I'd give it a 10/10 myself though. Best played on veteran mode the first time through seeing as normal really is too easy.

    Same boat as you and I just won it on eBay for $31.00. I think never paying full price for a game is the way to go.

    Great, great game. Buy it, you'll be glad you did.
    Just some of the best features are:
    -Multiple planets to travel to (Including the Space Pirate Homeworld)
    -Switch between the combat, scan, command, and x-ray visors to solve puzzles
    -Extensive morph ball gameplay to add another dimension to the game
    -Harrowing boss battles (Including 2 against ridley!!!)

    Definately the best of all 3 prime games, and I loved them all.

    im a metroid fan, and thats why im saying rent it
    its cause metroid games are for the fans
    it really is something different because its a first person adventure

    if u want an amazing game get mario galaxy, but for someones first time playing metroid, id say just rent it

    i think you should get more into the storyline first if you want to buy it. if you just want a game to play, rent it first. you really have to appreciate the series as a whole.

    I've never played any of the Metroid Series, but I'm into sci-fi shooters and this sounds really good. I can't really see how not playing the other ones is going to discourage someone from playing Prime 3. I would suggest reading the the first two links though. The last one, which I didn't read, sounds like it will spoil the story of Prime 3. IGN.com gave it a really good review, and with the many hours of gameplay it sounds like a good game to focus on

    definetly a buy, this is one of the best 1 players fps on the wii at the moments, it can be frustrating at times, but well worth your money

    it kind of depends on what you're looking for in a game. if you're looking for a good action/adventure/fps, then i would say yes grab it, if you want just an fps then go for Medal of Honors: Heroes 2, and if you want an adventure game get Super Mario Galaxy.

    just my $.02
