Jesus tapdancing christ, I've been more coordinated and more precise playing UT2k4 at a LAN party while shitfaced drunk than playing Metroid Prime 3 while stone sober. Seriously, I played that game for an hour and it gave me a fucking headache. I used to play Descent for hours on end and never even got disoriented and 60 minutes of Metroid Prime 3 gives me a headache. Ugh. I don't recall the first game being as... "swimmy" as #3. Feels like the entire game is floating on a puddle of water or some shit. Once I turned on the sensitivity to max and turned off the idiotic freelook-while-locked-on (what the fuck is the point of locking on then, jackass!?) I could actually reliably hit things, but it still controls like shit. At least the game is comically easy, even on "veteran."
But, seriously, I ain't exaggerating. I've played UT2k4 while completely shitfaced drunk better than I played this game while stone sober. The controls are abominable. Maybe this is why Nintendo went from "Nintendo Hard" to "even a 5 year old can beat it."
Maybe you just suck at using the Wii.
I'm being honest here. Every other reviewer/player/whatever has had MP3 controls play fine, including me. And the first hour of Metroid Prime two was 'comically easy', doesn't mean the rest of the game was - far from it
Also, have you got Brawl yet?
