Plot. Taking place after Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, Samus returns to the Galactic Federation HQ. There she recieves a briefing from her superiors, that a computer unit known as the Aurora Unit was malfunctioning and infected by the Space Pirates with a virus. However, the pirates attack the Federation, and Samus, along with Bounty Hunters such as: Ghor, Rundas, and Gandrayda, must retake the base, and defeat returning foes from the past. But things will soon come to light.
Concept. You first start at the Galactic Federation, where you must defend it from the pirates. After that you go to Planet Norion and defend the remaining forces of the GF there. After that, once again players would travel to different planets and space stations to destroy the Phazon threat and the pirates as well.
Development. At E3 2006, the game looked very similar to it's predecessor, but, Retro Studios said that it would have a much more finished look. And they succeeded. This is one of the first Metroid games to include voice acting characters, but Samus can't even fully talk. All you can hear are her grunts and screams.
Music. The music was pretty cool, and some themes seemed to resemble the style that the Halo games had. There is always a rivalry between Halo and Metroid.
Rantings. Well, we all know that even the best video games have flaws. Well, I definitely hated the Elysia planet. When you head to other platforms by grappling, these enemies that throw energy balls at you or those three little ships that look like saws come from out of nowhere and then they make you fall. I also hated the fight agains Mogenar, which pretty much annoyed me when he was moving his cores to different parts of the body. I also hated Helios, who seemed too tough to show his weak point. The Phazon Metroids were also pissing me off as well. Also hated it, when those Pirates threw you energy balls to overload your Phazon in an effort to kill you.
Good Aspect. I really liked playing the Bryyo stage, and the music was definitely awesome. The Screw Attack was ok, but not like in the other Metroid games that I played in the past. The scene where you defend the base, and also the raid on the Pirate Homeworld, and Phazon Homeworld were definitely awesome. It was almost something out of Halo. What would the people at Bungie Studios think about that?
Overall. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is a must have for all the Wii owners. I give this game a 10/10
