Default Metroid Prime Trilogy

Man... what a difference the Wii controls do for Prime 1 and 2. I played the originals on Gamecube way back but I just couldn't get passed the controls. The game didn't have dual analog support.

Now with the wii controls, the action feels far more dynamic. It's not perfect, I would prefer dual analogs but It's a hell of an improvement none the less. Doesn't hurt that they have given Prime 1 and 2 widescreen support and they seem to have improved the looks... perhaps more anti-aliaising... Either way, it still looks good enought.. I suppose it's due in large part to the art direction.

I sort of wish Bungie and Microsoft would release a Halo Trilogy like this for the 360 with full compatibility on the 360, widescreen support for 1 and 2, with HD cinematics, DD 5.1 for the original and use the Halo 3 engine on 1 and 2. Heck, if they would even give us the Halo 3 models for 1 and 2 that would be sweet, with achievements for 1 and 2.

Agreed, it would seem to be easy money for them too, hopefully they make it happen.

I picked up the Metroid Trilogy as well and am loving the control scheme change. As soon as I played Corruption when it came out I always hoped they could do a sort of retrofit for the first two. Very very pleased about this purchase.

I just got this yesterday and it's easily worth the $50 (collectors edition nonetheless). I won't be digging in until after Batman is done, but I did play around with it a bit. The controls are certainly an upgrade over the GC controller, but I would still prefer using dual-analog, even the Nintendo Classic controller support would have been awesome.

I plan on getting this after I'm done with Batman, been looking forward to it for awhile.

Im still surprised they released it at $50.

Surprised in a good or bad way? I mean Prime 3 was practically still full price upon release of this.

I can't believe how they fit it all on one disc.

Just giving us the smooth Halo 3 controls would be amazing. I mean, going back to Halo 2's clunkiness is really hard. You don't notice it's clunky till after you played Halo 3. Halo 3 is arguably the best controlling FPS (for consoles) out there. It's like butter.
