I am officially too old for memes. Laughing

In other news, TW101 is definitely a Platinum game. It has that demand for the kind of exacting standard that I am not capable of. Still, I'm enjoying the varied set pieces and the design: the levels look like a child's playset, and some of the character portraits move like Thunderbirds puppets. An odd concoction, it is.

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

Played the first hour of this three-quel and have to say that it's hugely underwhelming. NGamer appeared to agree at the time, stating that the first section is "awful" and it's not until you get to the second world that things start to pick up. Was this common on Wii? Twilight Princess sticks out as another that suffered from a boring tutorial that dragged on too long.

The problem with the start of Prime 3 is how terrible the dialog is. It knocks you out of the immersive world Metroid is normally so good at absorbing you in to, which raised another issue - Prime 3 feels too open. Not open-world or open-ended, but it feels less claustrophobic and that sense of isolation is gone.

Please tell me it gets better.

Erm.  Nope.  Those are the problems with MP3.  I didn't have a problem with the openness so much, but the voice acting and 'characters' are notoriously awful.

It never really comes back, either. The levels are a lot roomier than past Metroids and there's far more talking than there should be in a Metroid game too.

I will say there are some cracking levels in the game though - if I remember rightly, the level that's basically Cloud City was a good 'un.
