8 -12 Hours long.
Not according to my Wii, which tells me I played this game for eighteen hours and forty minutes yesterday (and I still haven't finished it). I'm sure that pretty much every review is just based on the story's length (point A to point B), and they didn't actually bother to try looking for the more deviously hidden pick-ups....
Wait, you played a game for nearly 19 hours in a single day?

So I just beat the game. Well, you know, the first end anyway. Do they explain the title Other M later on or should I just continue my assumption that it's simply an anagram for Mother?

Maaaan, the game just gets awesomer and awesomer by the second from the Ridley fight onward. Can't wait to get home tonight and hopefully finish it. Definitely the best 3D Metroid. I'll have to replay the 2D ones someday soon because I'm not even sure if all of those are better. Metroid 1 & 2 definitely take a back seat for me.

Mild SpoilersThe ending of the game: hmm. One one hand the twist at the end is very cool, and it wraps up an over all excellent story. I just thought the last little bit, which has Samus sort of reflecting on the whole adventure, wasn't particularly effective. Then again, the game isn't exactly over over once the credits role. In fact it only gets more fun So we'll see. Maybe there's more to the ending I just haven't seen yet.

I'm curious what your completion time was, Kid A. I get the feeling I'm nearing the non-100% end, myself. Don't know what my time is right now, but it couldn't be close to the 20+ hour mark usually associated with 3D console adventures. I quite hope it turns out to be as short as I'm suspecting it is. I look forward to trying hard mode, but not if it's going to take me forever.

Just an estimate, but probably around 9-10 hours. I actually quite appreciated it's brevity. I hate it when console games add in needless objectives to try and stretch out the length (like finding the energy cells in MP3). Plus there's plenty to do once you beat the game

Pfft the original is still freakin' sweet.

I may add, that to really know what time it took, go see in your log on the wii hub.
BIT OF SPOILERSAlso, about Ridley, think of this about 2 minutes: even if she killed him about 5 times (6 if we count Zero Mission), she was sure that it was it final end in Super Metroid: there was no matter to clone for: the planet freakkingly exploded! So, for her, he was finally destroyed for ever. Until she learns otherwise....END OF SPOILERS

i'm stuck on sector 2. I just passed a navigation booth and my path is obstructed and needs the super missle to blow up. I do not have the super missle yet and can't find another path. Can anyone help?

I also died once at the hands of the falling elevator, then the next time around I remembered one of the impression articles I'd read prior to the game's release which mentioned hiding out in the alcove, so that's what I did...
@Adam: My file says I was just 7 minutes shy of 19 hours, (my Wii says 35 minutes shy of 30, though) of course, I got all the pickups, so that probably added on an hour or so...
Regarding the Ridley discussion, not really topical or spoilery, but how f'ing evil did Ridley look all silhouetted when he first reveals himself to Samus? The glowing, piercing green eyes were an awesome touch...

Could you be a little more specific? I know what part you're talking about but I can't remember the context
1,112. Posted: Thu 2nd Sep 2010 21:38 BST
I haven't read through this whole thread and this has probably been answered already so I appologize.
How difficult is this game? I've heard a few people/reviews mention difficulty and I've never ever played a Metroid game before. I also prefer easy games because I'm a big crybaby.
I don't mind dying a few times but I don't want to get really stuck on a hard boss or a hard hallway or something, you know?
1,113. Posted: Thu 2nd Sep 2010 21:41 BST
Taya, it is a decent challenge, but I think anyone should be able to do it with effort. Because of the way the sense move (dodge) works, I found myself just tapping the D-pad over and over during most of the boss fights so that I'd always dodge. A few will catch you by surprise, but I beat every boss on my first or second try, I believe.
The challenge is more in figuring out what to do. Many rooms have very obscure paths to the exit. Of course, if you get stuck, you can always use a guide, so it's not like the game should be impossible no matter how stumped you are.
I don't disagree. All the games, other than Prime 3, were pretty awesome in their own ways, I thought. But goodness gracious that game needs save points, even if just at the elevators and bosses.

@Taya: It's not difficult enough to where you'll end up stuck for too long, especially not in a hallway. The key to winning difficult boss fights is to make use of the sense move and finding the boss's weakness. I only got stuck on one boss (the third to last one) and it turns out it was just due to my own mistakes (namely losing too much health before a certain part of the fight and not realizing you could "use" an unauthorized ability...

Adam your disrespect for Metroid Prime 3 has upset me greatly. It's my second-favorite Metroid game. If I were Samus, I would give you a thumbs up.

Thumbs "UP" FTW! I'm surprised an awesome meme hasn't come out of this yet... get to work internets!
@Taya, not a insane hard game, and I don't believe it's one that would give newcomers frustration. Well, at least not the "bad" kind of frustration. (The one from crazy design choices, or impossible situations. Mainly, it might frustrate you just from you not paying attention to stuff or taking a while to understand a boss' pattern)
As much as I love this game, if you have a choice, I can't in good conscience recommend you play it before Super Metroid. But plot spoiling aside, this would be a nice place to start the series if you don't want to play Super. (since this game comes after Super Metroid in the timeline, it will spoil Super Metroid's "story") If anything, it's a spiritual middle ground between the 2d games and the Prime series.

As someone who loves not only Metroid 1 & 2 but also Hunters, three of the most actively disliked Metroid games, I can't say I sympathize. Poor Samus, she works so hard to save the galaxy over and over but can never seem to gain complete fan approval.

Maybe I'll wait until I finish Super Metroid until I pick this one up...
