Join Samus for an action-packed space adventure that takes the best elements of 1st-person and 3rd-person gaming to create a seamless blend between gameplay, story-telling and cinematography. Players hold the Wii Remote controller sideways while navigating and battling in 3rd-person. However, at any moment, players can switch immediately to Wii Remote pointer controls to examine and explore the environments in 1st-person perspective.
