Metroid is the last of the major Nintendo franchises, after Zelda and Mario, to make it to the Wii. After the series was rebooted with Metroid Prime for the GameCube, though, it's perhaps the franchise most suited to the platform; it doesn't take a genius to see the potential for a first-person adventure game using the motion-sensing systems built into the Wii's controllers.
Thankfully, the wait is over, and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is now on store shelves. This new Metroid adventure does indeed incorporate the full range of Wii controller functions, and will let you use the Wiimote to point and shoot as if you were really walking around on these alien worlds. The controls here are well-done, which is obviously important, but perhaps even more remarkable is the way the Metroid universe is finally brought to life with the inclusion of a stronger storyline and multiple characters you can interact with; no more wandering around sterile worlds filled with nothing but enemies, in other words.
