Summary: I was expecting so much, but in the end it just butchered Samus Aran's character, and had overall terrible design and gameplay. Avoid if you are a fan of the series, you are better off replaying the other titles.
Summary: This game is hard to explain, I would say it is a mixed bag, but it is more low standard than not so it is slightly below a mixed bag.

Taking place right after the events of Super Metroid, Other M is intended to give players an in-depth look at Samus Arans...
Summary: This is what happens when cinematic "vision" gets in the way of proper gameplay. The terrible characters, story, and dialog negatively impact the gameplay itself, which doesn't know whether it wants to be a 2D NES throwback or something more modern.
