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: The Prime Trilogy was the best FPS I've ever played. Period. So naturally , I was super excited to play the next Metroid entry. Unfortunately , this game is just not fun. I beat it , but it wasn't fun. The gameplay is pretty screwed up.
Summary: In contrast to most of the other entries int he Metroid series, this game was incredibly shallow as far as gameplay goes. You can go through 90% of the game easily taking out enemies with the auto-aim and even the first person mode is a simple lock-on system.
Summary: Metroid: Other M has aspirations to be a 2D platformer revival (a la Super Mario Bros. Wii) as well as a Metroid-flavored 3D action/platformer with cinematic flair in the vein of God of War (no doubt the influence of Team Ninja and their Ninja Gaiden Sigma series).
Metroid: Other Movie - A Lifetime Channel Original
18 November 2010
Summary: *Introduction* The Metroid series is one of Nintendo's finest, and the new entry, Metroid: Other M, is finally here. After the excellent first person Metroid Prime series by Retro was concluded, it was announced that Metroid was returning to both third person view and Japanese development.
Summary: CONCEPT: Metroid: Other M is an action-adventure game that feels very toned down compared to the standard of quality many long time fans of the series have become accustomed to. 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.
Summary: For the last 10 years, Nintendo has been constantly changed what Metroid is supposed to be. Metroid Fusion attempted to follow in the footsteps of the original trilogy that creater Gunpei had made, although he had intended it to never be more than a trilogy, and Nintendo did at least wait until his...
Summary: I was very skeptical when the Metroid Prime series started. "Metroid as a first person shooter?" I said to myself. But I was very impressed with all four of the games (including Hunters). But when I heard about Other M I was very excited.
Pros: Graphics beat out the snes
Cons: The controls. Switching into fps mode is slow and clunky when you're in a hurry. I hate not being able to change the perspective while running around. I hate what they did to Metroid. This game could have been so much better had it used the chuck. Oh-well, good thing I played my friends copy befo...
