Metroid Prime Trilogy was Developed by Retro Studious and Published by Nintendo. It was released on August 24th 2009.

Metroid Prime Trilogy is a limited Edition Collectors title; it is a compilation of all the Metroid Prime games (excluding Hunters) on one disc. That’s right Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2 Echo’s (which were on GameCube) and Metroid Prime 3 Corruptions all on one disc.

Because we are all familiar with the Metroid Prime series, for those of you who do not know I will give a quick background. The Metroid Prime series takes place in between Metroid and Metroid 2: The Return of Samus. The series was started in 2002 and ended in 2007 with the release of Metroid Prime 3 Corruptions. The Prime series are the only games (so far) in the Overall Metroid series that takes place in the first person view.

Because this game is “technically a re-release, the first two games (Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2 Echo’s) feature improved graphics (comparable to the third game) the same credits system found in the third game, the first two games are now able to support 16:9 aspect ratio, the ability to trade credits with your friends (like MP3) and, the difficulty in the boss fights have been turned down somewhat. Also the Multiplayer from Metroid Prime 2 makes a return, a reworked HUD in Prime and Echoes, (it now only displays the current beam/visor in use.) Also all gauges, the radar, map window, and beam/visor icons becomes transparent when the cursor passes over them and lastly, faster loading times.

Graphics and gameplay wise while the gameplay across all three games remains the same, as I said earlier the Graphics in the first two games have been improved to match those Metroid Prime 3, and lastly the control scheme from Metroid prime 3 is implemented into the first two games.

Overall Metroid Prime Trilogy is in a nutshell a great buy; you cannot go wrong with this purchase. If you’ve already played all three of these games nothing much has changed. If you ever wanted to play the Prime Series here’s your chance. Metroid Prime Trilogy gets 10 out of 10.

An awesome series. So far I have only played the 1st and 3rd games, but I plan on getting the second one soon. Which one was your favorite?

Was it just me or were the graphics better in the 1st game?

I don't really have a very good eye for graphics, but the 1st game just seems to look better to me.

Of course, I don't think graphics matter much anyways, but it did seem odd.

The Graphics seemed consistent to me.
