I can't say that i'm disappointed with this game because i had very low expectations since the first time i saw it. And i was right, it isn't a bad game, but it exhales mediocrity.

So, have you actually played the game or are you just jumping on the negative review bandwagon?

Yes, i did played the game.

Wait, how the heck did you play the game when it was just recently released in the US not a few hours ago of this post (though, if you live in the PAL regions, it will not come out in a few more days)? Unless you are a journalist, or pirated the game, it's impossible. Though, if you're talking about the demo version that was available at places like E3, then you shouldn't make a final opinion on a few minute playthrough.

? if his copy arrived early there's gotta have been some playtime right?

Anyhow, because it's such a different game, isn't it just logic it doesn't match some gamers? I'm not surprised to find people with mixed opinions - it is not as if you know beforehand whether or not this was gonna be your type of thing.

For me, every part of the comments and reviews that mention the positive-negative ratio confirms my suspicion that it is my type of game, but I am not the only gamer out there

I haven't read any reviews for it (don't want to spoil it) but I've enjoyed plenty of games with not so good reviews.

Me too. Like Shadowman.

I didn't realize my question would create such a riff in the topic. I was just asking a question then questioning the game. I'm sure this game is going to be just as good as any other game in the franchise.

I'm really starting to get more worried about the game myself. Yes we all need to form our own opinion but when so many reviewers are giving it average reviews we do need to take notice and yes now a day anything below a 8 is considered average in my book.

What I like about the series is being stripped away by not focusing on the exploration of the upgrades. That is what made the series fun for me. To have all of it from the beginning and to be ordered not to use it is stupid. What happened to not being able to access a certain area because you weren't properly equipped. Finding these parts or weapons you needed was half the fun of the metroid series. Most critics I think are judging this game against the whole series not just the prime series (which by the way was metriod through and through ). If you take away the ability to jump in Mario then it loses something. I feel like we have lost the ability in metroid with this version. Don't get me wrong it will still be a good game but fans of the past games will be the most critical.

That still happens in this game. Once you beat it, you can play through it again with all the upgrades you have, along with a map updated with all the expansion's locations.

Are you referring to the energy tanks and missile upgrades cus I've read you have all your abilities from the beginning. I'm talking about your different suits and beam weapons and any other of the speical upgrades you normal have to find in the other metroids.

Oh joy, I am deftinely going to have to send my Wii in for repairs since Metroid:Other M is a dual-layer disc game.

It's the dual layered problem you have 3 options get a cleaning kit to fix it, send it to Nintendo, or replace the drive yourself. Of those the kit is the best option, it should fix the problem.

Yeah, I'll get one of those sometime soon.

Slapshot

@irken... ssb did that to me, it was the disc.

Really starting to wonder why the review isn't up. Maybe panda didn't like it and low scored it himself. Review are opinions. As much hate thrown at g4 i clearly remember them going crazy over galaxy and perfect scored it.
