To be honest, you'll probably enjoy this even more without having played the first two. You won't have any preconceptions about how Metroid Prime games should play. Also, I don't think the story requires any previous knowledge to understand.
I would definitely recommend going back and playing Metroid Prime 1 and 2 and treat them as prequels. They're the better games IMO, because there is more emphasis on exploration and isolation. The world is also much more cohesive and interconnected, and the environments are more immersive. The style of the game is completely different; the first two are adventure games, while the third one tries to be a first-person shooter with a side of adventure.
So, if you do go back and play the first two MP games, expect MUCH less combat and shooting, and much more exploring and backtracking.
