@slapshot: So, what you're saying is that simply because some of us are die-hard fans we're overlooking "issues" with the game? It couldn't be that these "issues" were simply non-existent for us, it's just that our fandom has simply blinded us to them? I seriously resent that...

People who are having problems with the controls either aren't trying hard enough or have missed the point entirely
EDIT: Here's what I mean by this: if a game has bad controls, it has bad controls. There's no way around it. No interpretations--bad controls are just bad. So when there are dozens of critics and fans praising the accurate, unique controls, what does that tell me? It tells me that the people who think the controls are bad aren't doing it right. Or they've just missed the point.

I'm sick of this "how come you can't move in first person?" nonsense. In just about every third person game ever made there's a way to go into first person and look around. Heck, in Banjo-Tooie you could go into first person and shoot eggs at enemies as well. But you can't move in first person, because that's not how the game was meant to be experienced--it's simply a way of getting a better look at your environment. Why this is suddenly a big deal in Other M is beyond me. I think since the Prime games were based around being in first person, people automatically assume that they should be able to move in first person, because they could in the Prime games.

or, perhaps they've played other Team Ninja games and preferred those controls to the controls in Other M?

Alright. I've had it. I need help guys, seriously! I found a map of where I'm stuck. The missile tank I'm having the most trouble with is in room number 8 on this map (I think if I can get that one I can get to the other one). Give me all you've got guys!

Mine did this at first (and apparently quite a few others). Keep trying--after a few tries mine was able to read it no problem.

Alright, I think I know what your talking about now. In room number 8, there should be vents along the cieling. I think you have to shinespark up into one of them and there is a missle there. I could be confusing this room with another, but Im pretty sure thats it.

And you get to the glowing diamond like this: Get to the main elevator room, then go down into the main sector. You should come across a power bomb monster thing, beat him, and there will be a long passage where you go through to get to the real final boss. That should take you to the other missle tank.

Good Luck :)

EDIT: I think you get to room 8 on the way to the final boss, so that may be why youre having trouble

The room isn't long enough to shinespark, unfortunately. And just for clarification, the map is the main sector, so I shouldn't have to go down the elevator to get there, right?

Well, if you are in the entry part of the main sector, you have to go down the elevator to sector 2 that was unlocked with a power bomb passage, and then go up to the main sector through the main elevator to get to the next power bomb passage that takes you to the final boss.
Hmm, maybe you dont have to shinespark... I remember seeing a bunch of enemies come out of one of the pipes, and I was able to wall jump into that vent and grab the item, so try that.

And, just for clarification, you have every other item right? Or are you just trying to get to the diamond?

Just beat it. Well, you know. The first time. 65% item pickup, which is probably pretty measly, but it still made me feel good to find it anywhere near that high. haha

There were a few powerups I located but was unable to get to...I'm sure I'll be posting desperately for help on those soon.

But...yeah. A very, very good game. Excellent ending sequence, too...if a little long. I won't be spoiling details about it, don't worry...suffice it to say, I thought it was an excellent wrap-up, and the closing cinematics were gorgeous.

Great game. :)

kid a, if that room no. 8 is the one i think it is, you have to destroy a hive in one of the ceiling vents and then wall jump up it, not shinespark. it's tricky to do because the vent is so high, so you have to time your first jump well.

I have every other item, except for the one in room 8, and the one in the elevator room directly to the north of it. That room to the left of room 8 is Adam's command post, and room 8 has a little elevator (that I can't activate) that takes me up a floor. It appears to lead directly to his command post, actually.

It's not that one. As I recall it, that is the Power Bomb room that's directly connected to it. There's no enemies in room 8 (other than the one I had to fight from the Power Bomb door)

@Kid_A Well, I dont remember the main sector as well as I thought I guess, but I know for certain that at least of the expansions lies on the way to the yellow diamond, so I suggest:
Get to the main elevator room in the main sector.
Go south until you find a power bomb bug.
Blow it up, and go through that door.
Keep following the passage (If you reach a long curved room where you fight many seperate mini boss battles, youre on the right track).
Im pretty sure this will take you to both your items, as well as the cool ending bit.

Hope this helps :)

Thanks :)
Just to clarify, by the main elevator room do you mean the room that has lifts to sectors 1, 2 and 3? Because every time I go south from there I just hit this other big elevator room (that has one of the expansions, of course) where I can't use the elevator, go south or do anything without going all the way around by taking the elevator in Sector 2.

@Kid_A: Right at the place where you get stuck (the one with the busted elevator), there should be a power bomb passage to the east, just follow it and you'll eventually wind up in the main sector again...

Finally found it a few minutes ago. Beat the game 100%
Without spoiling anything, the second ending is fantastic. Really touching.

@tbd.... thanks. I thought i clarified that pretty well.

@ kida... actually I'm not having problems or not trying to use the controls correctly. I find the control scheme clumsy, that's it and the nunchuk could have helped imo.
