^faildude: nope. it would have been cool, but all in all i'd rather watch the scenes than read subtitles.

also, for anyone who was worried about items appearing on the map and making a sound, don't be. i've come across 4 already and couldn't find one for the life of me. you'll understand pretty quick that with preset camera angles it's pretty tough to see where items can be hidden, so if they didn't include some extra help you'd have to scan the whole game in 1st person.

As others have said, I can't believe this game has gotten so many mixed/negative reviews: it's phenomenal! So far everything has worked just as described in all the interviews prior to the game's release; tap any direction on the d-pad when you're about to get hit and you dodge at the last second, have your arm cannon charged up and jump on an enemy when they're weak to pull off an overblast, etc. It definitely takes some practice, but once you get the hang of it, you're good to go. My only complaint would have to be when you're frozen in place and tasked with investigating something in your surrounding area, which can sometimes take a while, but that's it. I'll be going back now...

@Faildude: The only languages were English, Spanish and French, so no. Maybe it's an unlockable extra, though, who knows...

This game and Ys 7 the same week (for me)....and Dragon Quest IX last month....I'm seriously dizzy.

I'll prob won't be on NL for the next couple days, since I don't have work and I feel like dedicating two straight days to beating this and the rest of Ys 7. SUCH A GOOD MONTH!!!!!

@Kid_A Eh not very far at all. I got x-ray scope, wave beam, and grappling beam last time I played.

That's good! Find a good guide or map and you could knock it out in a couple of hours

Whats dual layered mean?

It means is holds more data.

I'm pretty sure it adds another layer on the surface of a disc (which is partially transparent), allowing the laser to read either it or penetrate through and read the original layer.

So how come it doesn't work for some people?
Do they have a lot of things downloaded or saved files if so I don't have to worry right?

The dual layer process isn't perfect, especially for games on the Wii. A somewhat dirty or blemished laser eye might work like a charm on normal discs but not so much on dual layered ones. If you're able to play Smash Bros Brawl on your Wii (or any other d-layer game) you should be fine.

Has anyone who was having disc-read problems tried the Official Nintendo Lens Cleaning Kit on their system yet? I ordered it just now off of Amazon and I really, really, REALLY hope that it fixes the problem. I've been jonesing for this game for months, but I am kind of reluctant to spend $85 dollars extra to have Nintendo replace my disc drive just so I can play it.

Played about 45 minutes of the game because I had to go to school (), but that was an epic 45 minutes! I don't see any of thoses negatives points.Up until I've played more (like, when Im gonna get home...) this Is what I think: I think its a really good revival of the Metroid Series.

About those reviews who complains about cinematic and samus talking, think about a thing: Her first game was on the NES. Not many Characters talked in the game and even less had cinematic. One I remember is Ninja Gaiden, you know the game made by Techmo in 1988

Oh wait.

@badmouths: I bought the cleaning kit a few days before Other M's release and I assure you, it works like a charm. My Wii had trouble reading my Metroid Prime Trilogy disc, but as soon as I cleaned its lens, it worked. As of now I have about 6 hours of playtime on Other M and my Wii has given me no trouble...

@Metroid_Fan: Awesome! That eases my mind a little bit. I recently traded in SSBB because it ceased to work, so imagine my horror when this one (which I had traded Smash Bros AND 4 other games in for) didn't work right out of the box... Whew. Here's hoping the cleaning kit is successful...

Same here, I am not far in either (met with the Federation, defeated the first boss, etc), and I really like the cut-scenes and don't think the voice acting is THAT bad. I mean its Team Ninja, so it has that "feel" to it, but I am not cringing at every word, like I thought I would. I agree, I mean, yeah the Prime series is great in its own respect, but I don't think Other M deserves to be overshadowed and thrown under the rug, like some reviewers are doing...glares at G4's, Morgan Webb

it works, not just for dual layers but scratched discs as well. my copy of corruption got scratched to hell and wouldn't work; after cleaning once it was playable but would give me the "error" screen when loading certain rooms; after cleaning a few more times the game was fully functional again. i couldn't recommend that little kit any harder.

In fact, I prefer a little dull voice with character, for a reason like being all alone against the worst things in the galaxy many times, had to fight multiple times her parent killers, never of almost talking. Like I said on gonintendo.com, It is not NORMAL for her to fight with others, because she hasnt for a long time. She is a little relieved that she has friends but its difficult for her to how act. Many people in the real world are like that so its not Surprising that she isn't a super badass immune to everything.

Just checking in to say I love it.

It's awesome. I'm only partway through Sector 1, but the attention to detail has blown me away. An absolutely gorgeous game with some awesomely effective atmosphere. The third-to-first switching is so far very smooth, and getting smoother as I come to grips with its quirks.

This is a fantastic experience so far, and I look forward to spending much more time with it.

Also, to the voice acting haterzzz: you crazy. It ain't really that bad. Samus might sound a little clinical and dazed, but that's sort of accounted for by the opening cut scene.

Also also: I'm probably wrong, but right now it seems like the Samus/Adam relationship is going to explore some darrrrk places...me likey.

...I think I found my first door where it needs a super missile...and I'm stuck at these two areas...can't find anything. (besides that missile expansion, lol) Dunno how to open up this regular red door either, halp!!!

@Chicken Brutus

That's where I am too, but toward the "seeming" end of Sector 1.

That's exactly how I'm feeling about this game. Once the game starts and the narrative is "as you go" there's absolutely no fault I could find with it. None. And, tell me this, have you EVER played a game that transitioned from "playing" to "watching story" back to "playing" as well as this game? Lord almighty, it's so friggin smooth.....

You know when you are playing zelda and Link walks into a new area (Or a boss area) and the game takes over, shows you around then gives you control, in one "cinematric" motion? That's amateur compared to what Other M is. The "cinematrics" in this game are so smooth and the character model on it is so perfect to the playable it seems surreal.

Metroid fans, don't worry about the "authorization" thing. It works. It fits within the story and gameplay, and doesn't feel frustrating. The Metroid exploration is not touched by it, as within 20 minutes I was finding little hatches and walls to blow up and little nooks to find secret stuff.

3rd person to 1st person? Perfect visually. There's no hangup (which I was expecting). There's no frame rate issues. And it feels natural to your hand and it become second nature and instinctive within a few minutes.

Example: The game is so smooth, if you are near a door and an enemy huts you and you fall back to the previous room the door will stay open so that you can keep your fight going. It doesn't "reset" the area like all previous games did. I mean, that's the kind of detail you will find in this game.

Let me get back to it.... but man, this game is amazing.

@bell, go back to that little room with an "aquarium" thingy at the middle of the room. There's something inside it now. You'll get the hint. = )

Yeah the missile expansion right? I can't get to it...lol. I'm looking in it and see nothing but that. Gah! xD
EDIT: ...Never mind. xD

just those two post above me say that they are, Indeed, playing a METROID game.

(- I dont know what to do.... F**************)
(Search in **** room)
(I see it but I cannot get there!)
(Oh, you could blow that up? Sweet)

Isnt that what happens in every freaking metroid? (maybe except prime's, the scan indicate what you can blow...)
