Metroid is a series known for great games! ...Excluding this one.

Summary: As someone who's been a long time fan of the Metroid series, it pains me to say that I can't recommend this game. The main character Samus, is utterly destroyed in this game. She's been one of the most iconic female characters in gaming and is one of the most powerful in Nintendo history, but in...
A travesty of gaming, and a disgrace to the Metroid series
Scott Whitman, Amazon

Summary: Quite what anyone was thinking when this was greenlighted is beyond me, as what resulted was a game which no Metroid fan could fail to hate, and which from a more objective view has little to nothing to offer which another game hasn't done better.
Summary: Metroid has got to be my favorite series of all time: non-linear exploration, epic battles, and superbly entertaining weapons and power-ups which you get both by following the story line and by NOT following it at all.
Summary: I hit a game breaking bug in this, so was never able to finish it and have to recommend against buying it. It's a known bug that several FAQs mention. Hard to describe where it is, but it's in Sector 3, the SECOND time you go to sector 3, shortly after getting the grapple beam.
Team Ninja clearly didn't "get" the Metroid franchise

Summary: I've been a long-time Metroid fan. I've played every game in the franchise, and this installment is not only a bad Metroid game, its just generally not a fun game. Metroid has always been about exploration-- you (Samus) and a big, open world, which you can more or less explore at will (minus places...
Summary: If you've ever had the pleasure of playing Super Metroid on the SNES, The Metroid Prime series on Gamecube and Wii, Metroid: Zero Mission and Fusion on the GBA or any of the other great games in the Metroid series, you are no doubt familiar with the concept of "fun".
Summary: The game is what I'd call a 3D Game with more similarities to Resident Evil. The camera is fixed when you enter into a room, however it does follow you giving you a decent view of the entire room. The controls are very responsive while Samus remains in 3rd Person Mode.
Metroid Prime was so much better than this Metriod Other M

Summary: Metriod Prime was a great Wii game. I enjoy this game from beginning to the end. The game, Metroid Other M is just not a good game. The game goes from shooter game mode to some strange mode that was just not fun to play. After a few tries it's been placed in the "Never play that game again archive".
Huge Metroid Fan disappointed by the destruction of my favorite Nintendo character

Summary: Samus is the kind of psycho that makes blowing up entire planets without a bathroom or coffee break her day job. I love her and her gun of magic that can somehow store hundreds of missiles (MISSILES!).
