liked the old pirates better they are more evil looking and for the big rooms thing its meh for both cause in MP3 they looked for the best room duh and dark samus does look much better oh plz for the angels shot there are more better looking shots than those! on the morph ball slot they blocked it with samus what the hell? and samus does look the same just a little more detail on the arms and gun the only bad i can say about the game is that HUD display show less on the wii MP3 than the others MP1&2

well these two games are different the thing is that both soldiers are the same but i like the echos version better.keeping the classic Samus starship would been best but i guess upgrades R better on the ship the save station on 3 has changed but its similar to the one on samus ship on echos has for the hallway u can tell its a hazard area because ur getting hit the differences in morhball are different but only because of the electric lights there

A solid improvment over echoes and a great improvment over the original prime.

lawls at aerials comment, but I hope we will rank near ps3 with Reflex, IF it's an actual game... I'm getting Reflex and MW2 because Nintendo is the best!

I'm still suprised how well the graphics are on these gamecube games.

Wii is the best when it comes to FPS.

The graphics on the Wii are far better than the graphics on the Gamecube. The Wii's graphics are better than the original XBox.

The 2 are very much alike, but 3 has better lighting.

MP3 is just a great game for the Wii an, yeah it's clearly a visual improvement on Echoes but it doesn't stop there. Some atrocious voice acting apart it's still my favourite game on the Wii(even more so when you get the sensitivity right on the already ace control sys)and all us Metroid fans get a bit guilty of not wanting to move on at times but the sharper visuals do add to a great experience. Also you don't need a higher poly count to neccessarily beef up the look of a great series-this proves it. Totemic achievement for the little concole, imo.

I thought the wii was only slightly better in graphics than the gamecube, but this comparison proved me wrong, to me it looks like Vivid colors and brighter lighting can make a difference.

This Wii game was such a pleasure to play. Graphically, it was literally breath-taking in several specific areas. Even the more mundane / boring settings were more than enough for me. They go for more memorable settings and scenes, rather than technically clever ones. Thats' why Prime has more heart than Halo.

They managed to take all the GameCube had and put it into a game, now they've done that for the Wii.

Metriod Prime still looks great. Even better on the Wii

good enough for me, I don't honestly care about graphics too much

After playing both games, these screen comparisons don't satisfy. Corruption looks MILES better than Echoes. Much much much better.

The only reason the Wii pictures may look worse is because LCD televisions aren't capable of producing images at resolutions above or below their native resolution so a 640x480 picture will appear blown up and more pixelated. GameSpot should have played both games on a CRT to notice the real difference since they can produce images at any resolution...

me personally, i don't care for graphics, i just think that if they are amazing then that gives the game a bonus. the gameplay is what really matters. as for the difference, in certain screenshots i see very little difference, but in others i see a huge difference, maybe its just my computer or its the way the game is. none the less, the wii is still a kickass system, with or without high powered graphics

the graphic difference is pretty small in my opinion but the wii and metroid 3 rule none the less.

Looks like one of the more solid Wii titles. Prime and Echoes rocked. Coruption won't disappoint.

If the games fun the graphics are always almost always satisfactory. The change in graphics though is really not very impressive. agreed?

It's enough of a boost to satisfy me, I'm excited and wish I could get my hands on a Nintendo Fan Bundle.

Graphics are a big element in games, and the Wii is still trying hard to break through the Gamecrap days. The Wii can and did improve the graphics though--Super Mario Galaxy

The differences don't seem that great to me. Nothing really blows me away.

Yes, the graphics in Metroid Prime 3 are great enough to satisfy some of the most hardcore Wii players.

The graphics are superb (bet ya never though a Wii owner would say that) but they are glitchy sometimes

The earlier screenshots were "meh" because they aren't much better, but the rest really stand out.

MP3 does indeed have great graphics...but sadly I think the Gamecube could pull it off...

The quality is superb in both, sure MP3s' is better but that doesn't mean I'm gonna play one over the other. Enough to satisfy Wii players eh? It more than enough satisfies me to just have the game as that's all I'm after, and if it's pretty, sure I stop and gander at all the stuffies. Graphics don't feed my gaming fuel, my SNES games still look great and new to me everytime I fire up the same game I been playing since day 1.

looks about the same... minor changes not enough to make someone not looking for differences notice much

Hi:) after spending moore time with the game i got one thing that i dont like so much : In the older versions of Metroid, Samus dont walk into friends that talk and give u missions, It ruins alot of the explore function in the earlier games. The silence feeling is gone so are some of the mystics along. I dont wanna run into talking humans or stuff like that when i play Metroid, i use my fantasy, and the text based old Metroid version is better than humans,friends, chatting (i Hope they remember that for the next Metroid game , that this is and alien world that dont speak english ; ) at least not before now:) except for this missions and friends talk alot the game is like all other Metroid games and alot moore fun) but any way plz STOP turning this game into HELO(x-box)

Wii isent all about graffics and i think wee all should know that now. The game is awsome cool;) > and its a good way to start produce games with new way of thinking & NextGen gaming, i hope the next Nintendo Flag will be an improment of wii tec and maybe get even a bether feeling with remote equipment/tecnologi and graffics can follow todays performens (maybe) or moore would be even greater:)) SMILE

Graphics don't make a game, but it is really nice to have a game that has good gameplay and graphics.
