Nintendo's infamous bounty hunter, Samus Aran, returns to face off against a dark version of herself in this, the last instalment in the Metroid Prime trilogy, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Near perfect first-person controls, pacing, design and gameplay make this one of the year's best releases. Hit this link to read the AusGamers review of just what the Wii doctor ordered.

I've never outrightly said GOTY, I've always had qualifiers like "contender for..." tacked on - but I think we'll do an AusGamers GOTY piece in December - just because we've been dallying in reviews this year and the whole GOTY thing seems to be a pretty solid topic here :)

advanced lock-on aim, more sensitive and no auto-aim - way better

Maybe I'm just lazy, but other than on bosses I find turning off auto-aim more trouble than its worth. Reducing the "dead zone" size was also something I quickly reversed, as holding my hand perfectly still is not my idea of fun.

In terms of the game itself, I found the first bit kind of lame but once you reach the first planet it gets going and is an excellent gaming experience.

Control-wise, the motion-based 'actions' like turning keys, pulling levers etc is kind of stupid, but the core aiming mechanic works exceptionally well and is almost worth buying for that alone.
