Exclusive Metroid movies

Next Friday sees the launch of the gorgeous Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Come see our movies

Proving that you don't need raw console horse power to make a beautiful game, here's a trio of freshly captured Metroid Prime 3: Corruption movies showing off Retro Studio's wonderful artistry in action.

We couldn't figure out what all the fuss was about at first; Samus' new Wii gun controls felt a tad above what we'd already experienced in Ubisoft's decidedly average Red Steel. Then we found out we were using the n00b controls.

On a big telly Metroid Prime 3's Wii controls are quite simply the most accurate you'll find on a console. We're still not convinced it fits in with the Metroid universe, but an online deathmatch mode with this set-up would have been absolutely fantastic.

Only a week before you can try them out for yourself... Unless you've been playing the US version for a good month already.

Oh, and don't forget to read the first part of our History of Metroid. It's all nostalgic and the like.
