The original Metroid Prime was a landmark title when it hit the stores back in 2002.
Released on Nintendo's Gamecube console, it was a sublime combination of a first-person-shooter, space exploration and puzzle game.
The fact that this Wii release contains an updated version of this classic plus Prime 2 and 3 - both great games in their own right - makes this an essential purchase.
Aside from the value-for-money aspect, the game itself is superb to say the least. A lot of work has gone into updating the control system originally designed for the Gamecube to make it work smoothly with the Wii's motion technology.
Even if you played all three games first time round, updates to the controls, graphics and audio give it a whole new lease of life.
The games are varied too, with each one cleverly advancing the storyline and despite the hours and hours of play available there is not much chance of boredom setting in due to repetitive play or movie-length cut sequences.
That's not to say the action is relentless. Metroid Prime still demands careful thought while negotiating the infamous puzzles that set it apart from many other first-person-shooters with all-out-action that next to this just seem that little bit too simplistic.
Overall then, Metroid Prime stands up there with any other release currently available for Wii and adds to the console's growing list of quality titles for the 'serious' gamer.
