Metroid: Other M (Wii)

ccgr.org
2 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Metroid is iconic to Nintendo gamers, and perhaps gamers in general. I grew up playing Super Metroid with my friends, and searched out a copy of Return of Samus with an exuberance akin to that of Christmas morning. It seemed so mature and dark; a lone superhero crawling through a planet full of nasties in the endless pursuit of  galactic safety.
  • Pros: New take on Metroid, interesting combat, fantastic world
  • Cons: Bad storytelling, repetitive gameplay mechanics

Metroid: Other M Review

Games Abyss
7 February 2011
  • Conclusion: Unless you are an avid Metroid fan, Other M may not be for you. It is definitely worth renting however.
  • Pros: The boss battles make this game and will drive you forward. Mastering the dodge mechanic makes counterattacking and dominating your enemies plenty of fun.
  • Cons: The game has no huge problems, just a lot of tiny ones. The game could feel kind of monotonous after a while. And the lack of seeing any real increase in your power keeps you from getting too excited.

  • Excerpt: New video games are released each week. Some of them are more exciting than anything we've seen before and some are not. Some are incredible experiences that push the medium forward and some are content to rely on past accomplishments to generate goodwill. Each new release means that when you sit down to play a game, you have more options than you ever would have enjoyed in the past.

Metroid: Other M Wii Review

Console Obsession
21 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Nintendo are hardly a company that adapts with the rest of the industry. In fact, by the time they do catch up, what was once a new trend no longer is. Nintendo’s properties haven’t really been featured in any cinematic games as such for example, but Metroid: Other M is something outside of the Nintendo norm: a game that embraces a popular trend and even gives Samus Aran a voice.

The Armchair Empire

  • Conclusion: not pulling punches with the blood and boobs that decorate their titles), a cinematic, action-heavy adaptation of the Metroid franchise. While Metroid has always been considered Nintendo’s darkest series, allowing a company as controversial as Team Ninja to have free reign over such a valued franchise was one usually reserved for fanboy dreams.

  • Conclusion: Could you have maybe let me use the Varia suit before I spent all that time dying from heat?
  • Pros: When the game starts inverting and magnifying gravity.
  • Cons: The cut-scene preceding a major boss encounter that depicts Samus as a sobbing child.

Metroid: Other M Review

VideoGamer.com
23 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Metroid Other M is one of the best Wii games I've ever played, easily bettering the usual dross Nintendo's waggle console is treated to, but it doesn't half have its fair share of problems. Developed by Team Ninja, the studio behind Ninja Gaiden, this is Metroid like you have and haven't played it before. With elements of retro Metroid gameplay, first-person shooting and third-person action, Other M feels both new and old, yet is let down by its more modern touches.
