Company of Heroes 2: Adrennes Assault Review

We mentioned quite some time ago there were rumours Nintendo and Retro Studios would be releasing an updated Metroid package containing all three games (Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption), but the official line from Nintendo has finally come through.
"Metroid Prime Trilogy puts the best first-person adventures all in one place, with a host of new additions that make these three timeless titles more engaging than ever," says Nintendo of America executive VP of sales and marketing, Cammie Dunaway. "A great deal of care and detail has gone into Metroid Prime Trilogy, providing longtime fans with new ways to experience the games they love."
There's no word on an Aussie release date just yet, but it will hit the US this August, so we shouldn't be too far behind. The trilogy will release on one disc with a single menu system tying all three games together. The Achievement system that was introduced to the Wii entrant, Corruption, has also been applied to the first two games along with widescreen support.

As a massive fan of all three games, I'm really looking forward to this Wii release - finally something hardcore from Nintendo, Now all we need is that Kid Icarus announcement...

Woah that's awesome. I thought they were going to be 3 separate games. Only thing I hope they don't do is put too much wii motion controls in the game.

yeah, the first two games have been ported over to the Corruption engine, so Wii Motion Control has been implemented - wonder if they'll take advantage of MotionPlus as well.

I absolutely love this series - each year one was released they went up against bigger names and were kind of overshadowed, which is a shame because they're brilliant - Prime was so hard to complete with every scan and upgrade 100%

Hmm... debating whether it's worth buying all three again...

The last one went a bit Halo with the story - I'm kind of happy they've ended it where they did - I wonder if a Corruption save will translate to the trilogy???

Considering I haven't used my Wii in about a year I can't decide if it's worth buying this one either. Yeah, they're great games, it's just ai can't find time to sit down and play them anymore. And Metroid does take a fair amount of time to be able to concentrate on playing, let's face it.

mp3 is a weak metroid prime but still owns because of how fun it is to play

Did they "fix" the backtracking problem in mp3?

No, it's a deliberate design choice to have stuff open up in other areas when you get new items.
