Shallow and short

nickdeo, Amazon
20 December 2010
  • 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.

Interesting Ideas, Poor Execution and Direction

Amazon
8 October 2010
  • 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).

uuuuh

30 September 2010
  • 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. To say it frank this game is BORING, have you ever watched a lifetime soap opera like Days of Our Lives or something like that, ever watched it for an extensive...

and had overall terrible design and gameplay

30 September 2010
  • 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.

Wasted Potential

J. Batson, Amazon
30 September 2010
  • 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...

A. Lai, Amazon

  • Summary: Its like a platformed. no atmosphere like the old metroid on the gamecube. No 3d exploration. Play it if you must play every metroid

I'll pass

Craig Davis, Amazon
30 September 2010
  • Summary: The game play is nothing like the other Metroid games and it is too dark to actually be able to see what you are trying to see. It may just be me but I am not a huge fan of this game.

More of a Chore Than a Game.

ShadowGamer90, Amazon
29 September 2010
  • 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.

Mother....Time to go

JT, Amazon
29 September 2010
  • 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...

This... really isn't Metroid

Anthony Ponce, Amazon
29 September 2010
  • 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.
