Are MP 1 and 2 really that much better on the wii? or should I just get the GC versions and then buy MP3

They are way better on the Wii. That does not warrant a $100 price tag though. Get the gamecube ones.

I know its expensive now but I would say it is. Its one of the last relics of the old Nintendo. You may never see anything like it again on a Nintendo console so I would say its probably worth it.

Each game is long and all 3 are great. I think its worth it for the motion controls in 1 and 2. Makes the games a little easier, not that they were ever hard, but the motion controls work very well with them.

I love the Metroid Prime Trilogy collection. It's incredibly well made, and the motion control really enhances the experience.

As for whether it's worth the extra money, I can't answer that for you.

The extra graphic polish and the controls make it worth it.

Everywhere I look, I can't find the game below $300.

Anyone know somewhere else I can look?

$300????? I found it on ebay for $80. That was about 6 months ago though. $300 is absurd. Its great and the motion controls in the first 2 are awesome, but not for that kind of money, even if you have it to waste.

- Better Controls
- Some Graphical updates
- Difficulty lowered in MP2. That doesn't mean it's easy, because it's still a tough game but the GC version for many people was very hard and frustrating to the point where it put them off the game.

I checked about a week ago and they go for $180+ new. I'm waiting for it to get to about $500 or so before I sell mine off.
