Expert Review

Realm of Gaming
30 January 2011
  • 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

Thunderbolt Games

  • Excerpt: It’s not easy being Samus Aran. She’s the most badass bounty hunter in the galaxy…but that’s all anyone cares about. Everyone knows about her insanely powerful weapons, legendary battles, and the mass destruction she’ll inevitably trigger. But they all forget something far more important: there’s a person hiding beneath those layers of impenetrable armor and advanced technology.

Gamer Limit

  • 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.

Metroid: Other M

Cheat Happens

  • 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. It's a gamble though that paid off in spades, as Metroid: Other M not only reinvents the longtime fan favorite franchise, it creates a brand new experience that's sure to please fans and those...

Nintendo’s Team Ninja Team-Up Robs Metroid Of Its Character

Game Informer
27 August 2010
  • Conclusion: Concept: Metroid’s exploration and upgrades meet Team Ninja’s fast-paced action gameplay -- oh, and drama Graphics: Some interesting environments and unique creatures balanced by rough character models and animation. Still, one of the best-looking Wii games Sound: Classic Metroid sounds and music will bring you much closer to the franchise’s greatness than the gameplay Playability: It can be fun once you’re all powered up, but switching to first-person to shoot missiles...

Metroid: Other M review

Gameplanet
17 November 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.
