Which is better halo 1 or Metroid 3 for the wii?

Depends on if you like Nintendo or Microsoft. But Mertoid 3 is a next Gen game though, so it's not that fair of a comparison. They are also 2 very different games, because of the unique controller that the Wii requires.

If you love FPS games, Halo is the leading title though, and you may want to buy it (and Halo 2) so you can understand Halo 3's deep plot.

It's true that they are totally incomparable games. Halo is one of the best first-person shooters available, while Metroid is a non-linear, more exploration based game like the Zelda series. It really depends on what you type of games you like.
