Hey, remember the first time you blew up a metroid up in in the third demension?  Well you can do it all over again, this time, with all three games.  The visuals are amazing, from looking at the details of you plasma beam while it burns a bosses face off, or while looking at that explosion that just killed Ridley, this game makes all Metroid gamers wanna cry.  The music is great, and completes the mood of the game.  the playability all depends on whether you want to be able to, or not.  don't be over ambitious if you're new to motion controls, set the sensitivity to basic.  I loved this game, and it was the first time i played Echoes. If you're missing a game in the prime series, buy this instead.
