(Other M refuses to even acknowledge the Prime Trilogy, which is unfortunate because they are some of the best games in the franchise, imo)

It allows for extensive use of first person perspective and includes the Seeker Missiles, which are I felt enough acknowledgment as no other material, esp. plot related, would have made much sense in Other M.

I wish that getting all the items in the game was more difficult. More difficult, as in not having their locations blatantly marked on the in-game map. Like, let me figure that out. It's a hand-holding problem Nintendo has been creating the past few years, but after reading the A Link Between Worlds interview it seems as if they're starting to turn that around. Hopefully that'll cross over to every next game they make.

I actually enjoyed this game. I will agree that that some of the gameplay could have been polished a little more (mainly the scanning sections). As far as the story goes, I would have prefered less time on her backstory and more time of the "here and now" problem of what was happening on the space station, but oh well...

@millarrp Why would you not want the backstory in there? Did it seem to out of place?

Anyone else think it's pretty cool they put real-ish guns in this game? I'm talking about the Machine Guns and Assault & Battle Rifles the 07th Platoon used in the game. It didn't seem really out of place but after playing the game I just remembered that they used them and I thought it was pretty awesome.

It's kinda cool, but it doesn't seem quite...space-like enough. Should've taken a cue from Mass Effect (IN MANY WAYS PERHAPS) in terms of weapon designs tbh (which were a nice futuristic version of standard weapons usually).

Heck now that I think about it, literally the next scene has them switching to ice beam-like weapons, and Mass Effect has the ability to add a freezing effect to your weapons.

I'm just going to say this outright. There are some elements of Metroid: Other M that I don't like, but overall, I love the game.

Maybe that's just me, a person who likes the linear Metroids and more story-heavy games in the series, but I'm being serious.

The game looks beautiful, the controls are tight and responsive, the environments are a joy to run around, there's enough exploration to keep me going back to previous areas, the dodge mechanic works beautifully... It's a brilliant game.

The few things I don't like are some of the platforming segments would have definitely worked better if you could move the camera in any way and that Adam has to authorize certain parts of your suit about 6 minutes after you needed it authorized.

Aside from that, it's a great game. 8/10.

no, you're doing it wrong! Didn't you see all the Other M fans? What you're supposed to do instead of actually enjoying your game is to assume everyone who didn't like it is a complete moron who didn't understand your perfect vid gam stry wrting!!! Obviously!

So months later, and after playing through it three times (once on easy, twice on hard), I have to say that...

It was a decent game
The difficulty leaned on the easy side
Sensemove is totally broken, but still fun to use
Samus' Other M Power Suit design beats all
I don't understand ZSS's heels and shorter height compared to all the other characters though
It was linear and unfortunately had much handholding (i.e. item locations, objective locations)
I didn't have much of a problem with the story
The way the story was presented is questionable
I don't know where to stand regarding the "hell run" sequence
The gameplay was good and I had no problem switching between first- and third-person
It felt better controlling her Morph Ball in Prime than in this one

Overall it was a fine game. A bit easy, a bit cheesy, but fine. I think they did a great job with the gameplay. Just, the way the story was presented was not as good. Like, you don't flat-out say someone is your father figure. I wish it was more subtle, I guess. Hopefully they'll learn and make the next Metroid better.

Bye Bye.

I personally believe it's not as terrible as everyone makes it out to be both in story and gameplay. This could be debated by many people for years on end, but the fact is that this game divided the metroid audience and no one is going to "win."
