Metroid Prime 3 and my annoying Brother

While my Sister is having her room painted and wallpapered and decorated she sleeps in my Brother's room.
Where does my Brother sleep you ask? On a mattress in my room! He's into football and won't stop playing Football Manager 2010 on PC which is kinda annoying - he's playing it right now. We have had plenty of fights and I usually have him pinned down and force him to retreat to the living room downstairs. Anyway, i brought a load of Wii games to play and I decided to continue with his Metroid Prime 3: Corruption Wii game. He's only played on it, like... twice? It's really good and the graphics and dynamic camera are far superior to other similar FPS Wii games.

You look out through Samas Aran's visor which is pretty cool and when you enter scan mode you can see her reflection. There's lots of little details which make everything more realistic and nicer to play such as the different bars and signs that appear when you enter different modes in your ship or on your visor and have no real reason other than they make it look cooler! There are good uses of the Wii remote and 

nunchuck's controls such as pulling back and twisting the Wii remote to operate levers and switches and using the nunchuck to grapple onto hooks and swing across chasms (or you can use the classic screw-attack when you have unlocked it!). When you enter scan mode on your visor you can scan objects and bioscan lifeforms and read about what to do with them or how to defeat them. There not much to do other than follow the story-line but re-visiting planets can be fun at times and there lots of collectables and suit/weapon power-ups to improve the experience.

Oh yeah! And the Bosses...they're awesome!

It's a good game and one of the best Sci-Fi FPS's I've ever played!
