    i deeply regret spending 50 bucks on metroid prime 3.

    no multiplayer AT ALL, and the game only took me about 2 weeks to beat. hoping to sell it to someone for maybe 30 bucks, seeing as gamestop only offers 18 for it used...

    ^ oh, and also what he said.

    cod3 had great campaign mode, but also no multiplayer support. i ended up trading it in to gamestop for only 5 dollars to cover my preorder for ssbb. 35 dollars down the drain right thur...

    from now on, i'm only buying games with multiplayer, unless i know for a fact it's got worthwhile single player (zelda, mario, etc).

    *sigh* ... here's the online issue again.

    If u want a system that has good online go buy a 360 and stop bitching. we all know the wii isn't good for online (in comparison to 360 and PS3) ... but some people (like me) dont give a **** about online because i dont like multiplayer games (unless i have mates around for a piss up and we play guitar hero or something). I still dont believe in playing a game with some moron on the other side of the world is fun.

    Metroid Prime 3 is one of the best games on Wii and u regret buying it because it has no online? And u didn't know this before u bought it? Pfft... maybe do some research first then in future if ur gonna complain about it.

    Too bad this thread is revolving around OPINIONS, not FACTS. Maybe you should think before you post.
    If he doesn't like Metroid Prime 3: Corruption because it has no multiplayer, then he's at perfect liberty to state his opinion.

    Can't say I regret any of my buys.

    -Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition, cheap price and good controls..worth the money.
    -Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles, good game and interesting take on the series.
    -Super Mario Galaxy, my favorite game of 2007.
    -Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess, first game when I get my Wii, amazing game.
    -Metroid Prime 3 Corruption, great game again, lots of fun with that one.

    As for people complaining about Metroid and online stuff. Honestly online would not work for that game, at least not in the Prime series. And if you didn't like the single player mode, thats fine. You just should of rented it then rather than buy it is all.

    Reason I don't regret buying my games mainly is I know what interests me as a gamer, and if something is new or I am not sure about it I read reviews or give it a test run (rented a lot of games). Saves me money, and lets me play the really good games Wii has to offer. More people should do the same so they don't regret their purchases.

    Fraggit/FR. - I simply don't understand how not having online tarnishes a game so much in someone's opinion.

    This is a forum, yeah? Well I am open for discussion and I would like to know why someone would buy a game, knowing it has no online feature, then "regretting it" because it didn't have that feature? Just curious, that's all.

    I give up on this species.

    Your problem is you have very weak reading comprehension skills. Not once did AoWFraggit or FR use the work "online" in their posts.

    The last time I bought a game and regretted it was in August when I got Red Steel. I had fun playing it but then I got Godfather Wii and I stopped playing. Then I just couldn't muster enough interest to finish it. I had Metroid Prime 3 in Oct, Medal of Honor Heroes 2 and Galaxy in Nov, and Galaxy, Fire Emblem RD, and Resident Evil 4 Wii in Dec . When I get home March, I will have No More Heroes and [hopefully] Brawl to play. In August I thought $30 was a steal but now I want that $30 back. Oh well.

    Wii Play, well it's ok because it comes with an extra controller, but it's the only wii game I have that has been disappointing.

    ...when did i ever mention anything about online? i was hoping for split-screen at first, but bought it anyway because of the huge hype surrounding the game. sure it looked pretty and the controls were smooth, but i just didn't get a kick out of it. for me, the entire game was just shooting space pirates, opening doors, then shooting more space pirates. the single player was short and unsatisfying. i only mentioned the grudge i had about multiplayer as an add-on to why i regret purchasing mp3.

    and yes, this is a forum. and yes, that was my opinion on the game.

    sue me.
