Game Information

If you think you knew what it felt like to be the bounty hunter behind the visor, think again. Take aim at evil with Nintendo’s revolutionary controller.

* Players control Samus by moving with the Nunchuk controller and aiming with the pointer, allowing for a level of immersion unlike anything they have ever experienced. Through the eyes of Samus, players experience a quantum leap in first-person control as they wield the Wii Remote controller, the ultimate device for the first-person shooter genre.

* Samus will employ well-known power-ups like the Grapple Beam and Morph Ball, as well as a bunch of new surprises, to help her survive her coming trials.

Game storyline: Six months have passed since the events on the planet Aether. The Galactic Federation’s network computer, Aurora Unit, is suddenly and completely corrupted with something like a virus. The Federation believes Space Pirates may be behind the problem and, beginning with Samus, starts to contact bounty hunters. As they explain the situation to the assembled hunters, the Federation is attacked by the pirates. Samus and the other hunters leap to the defense of the Federation capital, only to find that the enemy the hunters face is the presumed-dead Dark Samus. Dark Samus is armed with immense power that no one can withstand. It soon becomes obvious that the forces controlling Dark Samus and the terror of the contaminated Phazon are a dire threat that could corrupt the entire universe.

Characters: Samus, Dark Samus, the Galactic Federation and new bounty hunters.

How to progress through the game: The war initiated by Dark Samus and the Space Pirates rages across many planets as they attempt to corrupt each with Phazon seeds. Players use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk™ controllers to explore alien landscapes, hunt for weapons and information, and destroy the seeds. Saving the planets from corruption isn’t enough, though. Eventually, players must take down Samus’ mortal enemy, Dark Samus.

Special powers/weapons/moves/features: Using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers, players will be able to grasp and pull things by using actual arm movements, as well as execute amazing feats like aiming and blasting in midair or at a full run. The game also incorporates a new system involving Phazon. If you fill Samus’ Phazon supply to a certain level, Samus will temporarily go into hyper mode, a state in which she can pull off incredible feats; on the flip side, if she exceeds the maximum Phazon level, she’ll perish. Also, for the first time in the Metroid series, Samus’ ship will be used in active game play.

To be fair they never said it would have it..

And it still prefer Metroid [/spits on halo 2 disk he should never have bought for his 360]
I'm sure it'll be a great game, but I'm not a big fan of FPS games, but I like metroid a bit... I would've got it if it had online play, not sure about single player, I'll probably get it when it's reduced in price.
Thats a nice bit of info, even though the sad part is the exclusion of online play. But thanks for sharing this information.
dammit i was looking forward to online play for a fps ( well we still got red steel 2 online )

though i'll still get it, looks like a cool game
JAJA so much for competing with halo 3 and yes i love halo 3 WAAAY more than metroid prime although i love both but damn im ADDICTED to the beta
i'll definitely pick up MP3, just because i've always enjoyed every metroid game i've tried. Also I can't see what everyones big boner about halo is. You are a marine in space that fights aliens, original concept. Oooo alien weapons, never seen these kind of things before. Wow online multiplayer, i've never played online on my pc years before. People play halo because usually they've never tried anything better, any of my friends who have ever played a pc online shooter all agree that halo at best is mediocre.

Counter Strike for the PC is way better than Halo in my opinion...even if its slighty more linear.
