I finally got the remote and nunchuck to work properly after messing with the sensor by putting it in different spots. The spot I have it in now I guess was the sweet spot and it was working completely fine for my 6 hour marathon today.
I'm loving every minute of Metroid Prime so far. I was worried about the game being having a first-person perspective compared to the side scrolling Super Metroid, but my worries were gone once I was finally able to play it properly.
The gameplay feels great and nothing feels clunky. Only time it was clunky was when the remote wasn't working at all but that was for obvious reasons.
For a game made in 2002 the game's graphics still look great and I'm assuming the Wii beefed them up to look better for the Trilogy set.
The music is awesome too and was ecstatic to hear some familiar tracks when traversing through the various areas of Tallon IV. When I heard Ridley's Hideout theme from Super Metroid play when I got to Magmoor for the first time, I knew I was in for some shit. The new music is also great. I was in the Chozo Ruins for a long time and I never got tired of hearing the funky beat that plays throughout this area.
From a 2D-side scroller to an FPS game, this feels like a natural evolution done right. It's still the same Metroid.
