Info and scans for the first of Nintendo's "Big 3" of 2007.

Article highlights from Play Magazine's first hands-on look at MP3:C via GoNintendo.com. Possible spoilers...


- First level - You are attacked on a spaceship while meeting with the ship’s captain…action packed

- Play feels motion controls work better than dual joystick

- Super sensitive pointer in “advanced” mode

- Beam stacking ala Super Metroid

- Visor switch: Hold minus and flick Wiimote in certain directions

- Boss fight with Ridley at the end of the first level. Excellent difficulty curve by the time you reach the boss.

- Back tracking in MP3:C makes more sense than in previous Primes

- Extra development time was to give the game more polish. Nintendo wanted “Twilight Princess” levels of polish. Game is focused on Metroid fans and hardcore gamers, but still accessible to newcomers due to controls.

- Second level - floating city focused on exploration

- Larger environments, bloom lighting, better textures than Prime 2

- Corruption Mode not available in demo

- Play says it could be the biggest revolution in FPS gaming since Halo.

Looks good for a Wii game. Can't wait to see video at E3. :)

Only one thing doesn't make sense.... Halo didn't revolutionize FPS gaming :lol:

Yeah, I didn't get that one either.

I guess you can say Halo's online multiplayer on Xbox Live is sort of a "revolution", since nothing like that had worked that well on consoles. But even if he meant that, the MP3 comparison doesn't apply since the "revolutionary" aspect of MP3 is the Wii-mote controls.

He probably meant the controls will help make MP3 as popular as Halo.

I hope Brawl is better than the 1st one, which I absolutely loved. Melee was fun, I just didn't think it was as good as the 1st. Maybe it was the gamecube controller(which I never got used to), who knows.

I can't wait to play this game! The first two Metroid Prime games were GREAT games, and the only first-person shooters I ever liked.

I don't know if he is hating, just stating that anytime a Mario game comes out it sells big regardless.

If anyone saw this months Game Informer (with CoD4 on the cover), there is a great section of Mythbusters(not the exact section title) but it goes through a bunch of common questions and misconceptions. It mentions the Wii and Mario titles for the DS in a few of the segments.

Can you turn off and on the stackable beams like in Super Metroid?

Hey Mor,

How was Paper Mario? I remember you mentioning that you picked that up.

I'm looking for a new game, and it looks pretty fun. What did you think?
