Summary: This... I can’t totally say this is not what I expected because I watched the trailer and some videos, but it’s definitely not the same Metroid most of us are used to. Also we can’t blame it for being different because everybody was going crazy over Prime going the First Person Shooter way, and see...
Summary: I love the controls, visuals, sounds, etc. The only downside is the way Samus is taking orders from someone else. She's always struck me as more of a lone wolf throughout her other games, so in that sense this one feels a bit off.
A great game, even for you original die-hard Metroid fans.

Summary: A fantastic game, really. It has all the puzzle-solving, action features you look for in a Metroid game. Sure, it focuses a lot more on the story line then the game play at times, but it's not really a bad thing.
Nice story presentation but the gameplay is far from the best in the series

Summary: Metroid other M is an interesting game because it tries to blend the feel of the side-scrolling Metroid games while adding a 3rd dimension to the side-scrolling environments and provides an auto-aim feature which would help casual gamers as well as help make the combat in the 3Dish areas less...
Summary: Metriod Other M was a fun experience for me. Super Metriod was the first Metriod game I ever had and it was nice to see similarities between the two. This does feel somewhat different that the rest of the titles, but so did the Prime series.
Summary: If you are a metroid fan like I am, then you know damn well you will pick this up. I picked this up when it was dirty cheap because when I heard this game was not going to be like Metroid Prime 1-3 via FPS, I decided to wait until the reviews and I am glad waited.
Summary: This game is way too underrated. (1) A main complaint against this game is the fact that it is cinematic, VS the prime games where you would piece together the story through scans, and entries in your log book. The voice acting is rather good, and the role of Samus was cast well.
