Metroid Prime 3: Corruption wasn't what I expected and I was a bit disappointed with it.

Absolutely awesome controls on the wii // A good length // Looks fantastic // Plays fantastic // Very clever level design // Good, rewarding, puzzles // Boss battles are literally really fun.
It can get really dull // Its not a game that you really cant wait to play // NOT A FIRST PERSON SHOOTER, more like FIRST PERSON ADVENTURE // You don't really look forward to playing it that much // The story can be hard to follow // You have to stand in front of a door, waiting for it to open, for up to 10 seconds.
Don't get me wrong, it's still a great game, but it just wasn't what I expected. Gamespot puts this game in the genre of "Sci-Fi First Person Shooter", but only occasionlly do you come across monsters to shoot in planets. You mainly walk around, aiming to go and fix something, or get to something. You might come across some attacking creatures two or three times the whole time on that planet. Therefore, this game is a "First Person Adventure"
The Boss Battles in most levels are really great and fun to play. They usually have a different weak point for you to attack, and you can find this out by scanning it with your scanning visor. The controls are really brilliant and are very well thought out. It feels really cool, and they work perfectly. The game is a very good length, and should take around 20 hours.
As I said before, you mainly go to different planets in different galaxy's, to complete an objective. It could be repair something, or destroy something, or many other things. It can get quite boring within a level, which is dissapointing. I was wrong to think it would be non-stop action, because that's certainly not what it is, unless you're in the middle of a boss battle. Also, the story can be quite hard to follow, and can get confusing at times. For example, I had to assemble a bomb, but I didn't know why, but I did find out later. I was also expecting it to be a game that I really looked forward to playing everyday, but sometimes I even wish I had another game.
The level design is really, very clever and well thought out like a lot of this game. Mainly everything seems to just click, but it can be boring waiting for it to do that. Talking about waiting, THE FRICKIN' DOORS DON'T OPEN WHILE YOU'RE STANDING IN FRONT OF IT FOR 10 SECONDS!!!! This really puts you off, and slows the game down even more.
The controls are some of the best ever on the Wii. But the reason the gameplay gets an average score is because it can get boring and very slow-paced at times.
The graphics are very impressive. Not the best on Wii, but very good.
The sound is also good, and the blaster sounds cool.
Long game, just dont have the inspiration to do it all. It's not all boring, just at times, but it greatly effects the game.
Metroid Prime 3 still deserves "great", but it's still quite a let down to what I was expecting. Buy it, for sure! But be cautious and just don't expect the world.
