Only Wii Remote and Nunchuk. The original Wii version didn't support the classic controller either.

That's a deal breaker for me.

I wouldn't care if you had to play this game on an accordion with your toes- it's worth it to experience such a great game! Honestly though, whatever your impressions are of motion controls, I would strongly suggest setting them aside for this game. Metroid Prime Trilogy is one of the few games that actually benefit from motion controls, not suffer. The only difference is, instead of moving your right thumb, you'll be ever-so-slightly moving your right wrist. And will gain precision as a result.

Not trying to knock your opinion, I just hate to see anyone miss out on one of the greatest video games of all time because they think the controls such a detriment to gameplay, when in reality they actually make the game better. At least, most would agree that's the case anyways.

The whole point of the Trilogy was for Wiimote support for the first 2 games. Why would you want to play it any other way if I may ask?

Because tacked on motion controls suck and my hands cramp up like mad playing a game with this kind of control style for long.
Deal breaker for me too, sadly.

DKCR was tacked on where as this is more like the way it would've been had the Wiimote been out then. Its seamless and works far better then dual sticks. Too bad about your hands though but this control scheme works the best by far. Even far better then Skyward Sword.

Do you want to try to play this game?

Don't feel compelled to try it based on previous experiences, but everyone makes it sound like I'm missing the greatest thing ever if I don't.

Well they are pretty awesome games. I recommend playing them, but if you aren't interested then you may not like it

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.

Should I buy this? I don't like awesome games that don't allow me to use anything other than standard dual stick FPS setup.

How do I save in MPT?

Controls seems to take getting used to but I'm having fun!

Are you playing the first one? Remember where you got the map. Its stations like those that allow you to save. Depending on how far you got you should have a save station just before a major fight.

Yep first one. And I found it...right before the boss fight. And when I didn't make it out in time i got a game over.

I'm not good at FPS' so it'll take gettign used to but so far I love this. Wonderful atmosphere.

Also, when you land on the planet you can save in your ship.

Also also, it downloaded in less than an hour. Now that's impressive for 7.6 GB! Got sidetracked by other stuff, though, but now I'll have to boot it up and check out the new controls.

Knowing the first two games were built for the Gamecube, traditional control scheme, and have it removed in favor of the motion controls is just annoying to me. What is so wrong with giving people options that Nintendo is so against it? I understand porting the first two to the Wii was to give them motion controls but still. Between my hands cramping up and my not so great wrists I wouldn't be able to enjoy the games. Would have downloaded this instantly though with a twin stick control scheme.

I wanted to buy it and download it later when I can get a hard drive, but it's not letting me buy it at all without having room. I have an 8gb so I can't make room.

Can you purchase it on the web site maybe? Not sure if it's there to purchase or not but it's worth a try.

I'm not sure I understand...Are you telling me I can purchase it on the internet from my computer, without the Wii U? If that's what you mean, how come I never knew this was a thing? And which website?
Edit: I found the website. I had no idea I could buy that way. unfortunately I don't have a debit card any more and I don't see an option to use my eshop balance. That just sucks.

Go to Nintendo.com and there should be a link. There is a select few games you can purchase and it will dl to the Wii U say if you weren't at home. If the site doesn't see the 8gig system then you might be able yo buy it if it's there.

Got an idea, if you happen to have a random usb flash thumb laying around that's larger than 8GB you'll be able to download the game that way until you can get a external HDD and transfer it over to that.

I'm throwing money at the work computer, but for some reason it's not buying it. What am I doing wrong? I've thrown, like, $50 at it so far.

Sorry for the late response I was at work. Call me old fashion but I like using a good old control without having to waggle it around. This is the same reason that Skyward Sword was a deal breaker for me too. The only game that I really enjoyed with motion controls was Star Wars the Force Unleashed and even then my hands would cramp up after not to long. Its not that I want them to get rid of the motion controls its that I just wish they had the option for other controllers.

Metroid has a lot less motion controls that Skyward Sword. It is just aiming and sometimes flicking the nunchuck. Everything else is buttons iirc
