  • 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.

  • Conclusion: While Metroid: Other M is infused with a dose of style and flare the series has been lacking, the horrible control scheme and overly emotional story ruins the whole experience, making the game extremely aggravating to play.

  • Excerpt: Team Ninja is anything but an obvious choice to make a new Metroid title. The Japanese developer, known for the Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden series aren't exactly known for the same type of games that Nintendo is known for making. Metroid: Other M was a huge gamble for Nintendo.

Metroid: Other M review

Gameplanet
1 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Metroid: Other M is a new take on one of Nintendo's most hallowed franchises. Developed by Team Ninja and offering a more cinematic experience, the game attempts to flesh out two-dimensional character Samus Aran with varying results.
  • Pros: Very smooth transitions from 2D to 3D platforming. Fans of the series might relish the opportunity to learn more about protagonist Samus Aran...
  • Cons: ...Until she talks: Terrible script and voice acting. Totally unnecessary motion control elements.

Samus Aran verrät Details über ihr Leben.

Games Power World
19 September 2010
  • Summary: Metroid Other M hat die traditionsreiche Spieleserie neu interpretiert und wird die Fan-Gemeinde definitiv spalten. In Team Ninjas Teil wird kaum noch die Umgebung erkundet, was dem linearen Spielverlauf zu verschulden ist, dafür erwartet euch oft ein (Boss-)Kampf nach dem anderen.
  • Pros: Mischung aus 2D und 3D-Gameplay, Gute Geschichte, Herausragende Render-Sequenzen, Oft pausenlose Action, Schicke Waffen-Effekte
  • Cons: Unbequeme, manchmal hakelige Steuerung, Wechsel in Ego-Ansicht nervig, Kantenflimmern & teils matschige Texturen (im 1st-Person-View), Erkundungs-Aspekt bleibt auf der Strecke

  • Summary: Ilska, vanmakt, depression och ångest är komponenterna i Samus Arans nya verktygslåda så som den gestaltas i Metroid: Other M. Lustigt, precis vad spelets recensent kände när han spelade det.
  • Pros: Bandesignen, Striderna, Kontrollen
  • Cons: Handlingen, Dialogen, Karaktärerna

Test : Metroid Other M (Wii)

Gamekult.com
9 March 2010
  • Summary: Metroid : Other M n'est pas parfait, mais il était nécessaire. Pour ce nouvel épisode, la Team Ninja a osé partir de zéro ou presque pour nous proposer un nouveau gameplay , avec une alternance action/exploration/histoire équilibrée et convaincante.
  • Pros: Un Metroid bourré d'action, Des tonnes de secrets à trouver, La mise en avant de Samus, Bestiaire très varié, Le feeling old school
  • Cons: Rarement joli, souvent moche, Perso secondaires trop génériques, Passage en vue FPS parfois agaçant, Les séquences de scan un peu inutiles
