Other M is a pure catastrophy for me.

The overall quality has dropped drastically when you compare to the previous entries.

Ok you can learn some stuffs about Samus, ok you get some infos about the mission on Zebes BUT DAMN, what the bloody hell is that ridiculous dodge move ? Playing Metroid is not playing Ninja Gaiden...

The game on all the plans is inferior to the Primes... Visuals, music, gameplay, level design...
No theme was taken from the old games (except the theme of launching the game and another that does not concern a music linked to a map.)

There are far too many savepoints... it breaks the mood of the game and makes the progress too easy (1/3 of the savepoints present in the game would have been enough). It's really a Metroid for casual gamers... like metroid and casual could fit in the same sentence... :/

Low exploration opportunities compared to previous games... It's the essence of a Metroid game... Dammit !

The enemies are repetitives as hell... there is a big lack of variety.

Samus can reload her missiles through a Wiimote manipulation so I do not understand why she can have more than 50 of them ? (It's totally incoherent because even with 10 missiles, you could finish the game.)

When you save you game, Samus missiles recharge to the maximum ! How is it possible to be in need of missiles ? LOL

Impossible to skip the cutscenes if you want to...

When you compare the first sector with the other ones, god you clearly feel that they rushed the game... :/

Other M is not a well made game, it's only a game with lot of flaws, totally unworthy of previous episodes...

To conclude, a great game for casual gamers or for people who don't really know the Metroid univers...

@Cobalt Your conclusion is a far off. I'm certainly not a casual gamer, and I know and own and completed pretty much everything that has Metroid written on it somewhere. And Other M happens to be one of my favourites. Top 3 Metroid game, highly enjoyable from beginning to end, 10/10 along with Super Metroid and Metroid Prime Trilogy. There certainly is controversy about lots of different things in Other M, but nothing big enough to damper my excitement in the slightest. I was totally absorbed completing this twisted masterpiece.

What are your favourite Metroid games?

@SKTTR

My favorites are basically ALL of them :

Metroid
Metroid II: Return of Samus
Super Metroid
Metroid Prime
Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
Metroid Fusion
Metroid: Zero Mission
Metroid Prime: Hunter
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

The bad ones are those : Metroid Other M and Metroid Prime Federation Force.

Toki Tori 1 and 2. Cheaper than Switch versions when they were on sale. And they give me reasons to play my Wii U in 2018.

@Cobalt And What was the one that got you into Metroid big time?

@Moroboshi876 Toki Tori 1 & 2 are excellent picks. I also have both of them on Wii U (and the second one on Switch as well). Those games have some truly mindblowing level designs and puzzles.

@SKTTR

My first time with Metroid NES ! Fun fact : it wasn't my game but the one of a friend and at that time we called Samus... METROID ! LOL Yeah, for us, the character was METROID... I know that's ridiculous but it was like that...

I just grabbed a used copy of Super Paper Mario from GameStop earlier. I know it has its haters, but a lot of people seem to like it as well. I figured $10 was worth the risk.

@Tyranexx It's not a bad game, but it was a letdown after the fantastic Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door for GameCube. It took me playing Color Spash to realize that Super Paper Mario really wasn't horrible.

Yeah, people were disappointed when Super Paper Mario came out because it was different from what they wanted, but then Sticker Star released and people started to appreciate SPM more because it wasn't a train wreck.

Still waiting for Atlus to make Snowboard Kids 3

I've decided to delve into the RPG side of Mario after so long and decided to dig into the Paper Mario series after I finished Super Mario RPG a few months ago. I started with Color Splash as it was gifted to me a couple of years ago. I'm sort of close to finishing it; while I don't think it's a bad game per se, the decisions made with the combat system make me wonder what the team was thinking. I sometimes avoid combat in the best RPGs for various reasons, but never has a game made me actively dread it.

I'll be avoiding Sticker Star like the plague. At least Color Splash's writing is entertaining at times....

Once I get paid I'm either going to get Twilight Princess HD or Devil's Third. Probably the former though.

I grabbed AC3 on Tuesday. The day Starlink came out. So I obviously haven’t played it yet. (it’s ok, I played it on 360)

I liked Other M and live Super Paper Mario. Come at me

Picked up a copy of the Wii Ghostbusters for vWii mode. I've actually been playing a lot of that mode lately (Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Epic Mickey). I am somewhat surprised by how much I am enjoying them, and how little the graphics are an issue when there was good art direction. Still looking to pick up a few more Nintendo Wii titles on my hit list that are down around $5 used.

@Darknyht Let me know your thoughts on Ghostbusters. My kid loves Ghostbusters so if the game is decent I'd love to try it with him.

I played the PS3 version of Ghostbusters and it was great. It's essentially the third movie, being scripted by Akyroyd and Ramis and featuring many of the original actors doing the voices. The Wii version has the same story, but the campaign itself is different and uses Wii controls, so I can't comment on that part.
I'm curious too what you think of the Wii campaign, @Darknyht, as I might be getting this to put in my sisters Christmas parcel. She's a huge fan of the movies, but a very casual gamer.

Switch - Smash Ultimate, Mario Kart 8D, NES Online (Dr. Mario only)
3DS -
PC - The Witcher 3, Nier: Automata, Mortal Kombat XL

Switch FC : SW-1091-9839-4896

So far the game has got the voices, but the gameplay is a little uneven. I am not sure if it is because I am still in handhold mode or not, but so far the game is scanning with a PK meter and blasting ghosts.

The graphics are very stylized, and the audio calls my female avatar guy or he fairly frequently. The controls are similar to Metroid Prime 3 in that the pointer is how you aim and turn. Overall I am enjoying it, but again I am only 45 minutes into it.

Got both Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD off ebay. Happy to get some more use out of my Wii U, but going to need an external to play more games, I ran out of space. Eager to play Twilight Princess in glorious HD and with the improvements made. Never played Wind Waker so I'm curious.

I've just ordered a 2tb hdd in the hope of eventually merging my Gamecube, Wii and Wii U games onto one drive. Could take a while as I've not perfected the injection process yet, and I have about 150 games to inject if I go for all of them.

And I bought Ghostbusters
