[VIDEO] Metroid Prime Trilogy Comparisons

Caught this video on YouTube (albeit incredibly long for the topic) about my exact qualm with Prime's treatment by Retro on it's port to the Wii. Gone are special animations, water effects and certain textures. The video starts with GameCube Prime, showing water effects with the Morph Ball and Bomb, how the Beam fire affects the water, and shows each Beam's shot and charge effect, and goes and duplicates the same in the Wii Prime.

I'm glad that I'm not the only one who's pissed about this. If anything, the Trilogy should add to the game, not strip it down. The missing animations (Ice Beam freezing the arm cannon with a full charged shot) was pure immersion into the world of Tallon IV.
