If Hollywood director John Woo ever gets around to bringing Metroid to the silver screen, the open casting call for Samus Aran will now list a few more prerequisites. First-person adventure Corruption introduces some impressive Wii-specific moves to the bounty hunter's repertoire, such as unlocking doors with a twist of the Wii Remote and knocking away an enemy's shield with a flick of the Nunchuk. The actress also better be able to memorize her lines; this will be the first Metroid game to have spoken dialogue (well, at least the kind that wasn't some incomprehensible alien babble). And lastly, she should forget Echoes' (GC) multiplayer because 1) it really sucked, and 2) the developers recently mentioned such a feature would be very different here...if they do multiplayer.

Metroid heroine Samus has been helping close the gender gap in gaming ever since her seminal NES adventure. In Corruption, she'll be manhanc aliens and space pirates on the Wii, with players using the system's controller to open doors and launch grapple beams with hand motions.
Still, the biggest draw here remains the series' addicting action-adventure"formula and memorable boss battles. We can't help but wonder if ultimate toughie Master Chief could pull off a boss battle as sweet as Samus' versus the dragonlike Ridley: The two combatants plummet down a seei ingly bottomless shaft while exchanging fireballs and energy shots.
