Amazon.ca Product Description
Metroid Franchise�s Heroine Gets Personal For decades, Samus Aran has been known as one of the first female protagonists in video games and one of the most enigmatic. Having traded her haunted past for the solitary life of a bounty hunter, Samus� finally tells her own tale in this revealing, personal story of her failings, her flaws and ultimately her motivation. Metroid: Other M is an unprecedented collaboration that blends the slick, action-packed production of the world-renowned Team Ninja development team with the game design talents of the creators of the original Metroid. Metroid: Other M is a dramatic new direction for a legendary franchise and a bold new blend between cinematics, storytelling and the best in interactive entertainment.

THE OTHER M is an old-school platform shooter, only equipped with the latest innovations that enhance rather than hinder the true character of the game. Samus Aran can now move in 3D (and not only in a sidescrolling manner), yet this is and feels like a classic platform game. There is some puzzle-solving and expect to spend quite some time in the form of a morphing ball, zipping through pipes, bypassing obstacles, unlocking security doors and finding powerups; and the FirstPerson perspective is still available to deliver devastating missile shots (while keeping Samus stationary and vulnerable to enemy attacks, one cannot play the game as an FPS). Nevertheless, this is an pure action-shooter game that is greatly enjoyable.
Visually this must be the best game I ever played on Wii, with beautiful and distinct environments than never get boring and never interfere with the gameplay. And, following the tradition of the classic Metroid games, the THE OTHER M experience is enhanced by great orchestral music. Nothing epic, but it sure fits the mood of the scene it accompanies.
THE OTHER M is a tad story-heavier than I would have liked and the cinematic sequences are unskipable(?) whereas, annoyingly, the story at times throws Samus in the midst of her enemies with minimal firepower and often without her Varia suit.Read more ›
- The plot of the game is pretty weak.
- Samus starts with all her powers but isn't able to use them until commander Malkovich tells her to. What kind of game design is that?
- Enemies don't drop any health or ammo, so in the end you just pass through the many rooms of the space station while avoiding all of them.
- The voice acting is horrible, it completely changed my perception of Samus since I heard her monotone voice. Samus is a crybaby when she encounters Ridley she has a mental blocking and starts crying like a baby until commander Malkovitch tells her to snap out of it. It's very funny because in the Metroid chronology she's beaten Ridley about 4 times before and never acted like this.
- The pacing of the game is hindered by investigation moments where Samus just stands there in first person mode and waits for the player to find something of interest in the environment. There are also moments where there's an above the shoulder view (like Resident Evil 4). The player needs to move Samus from point A to point B just to view another cut scene. At that moment, Samus can only walk very slowly, she can do nothing else and there are no enemies. This breaks the pace of the game. Couldn't the designers just skip the walking Samus part and get to the cutscene already?
- There is absolutely no memorable music in this game, only ambient sounds.
- The control scheme is original, but doesn't work 100%. The controls in first person view don't allow you to move left or right and since the locking feature for the missile launcher takes about a second to work, you are very vulnerable to enemy attacks.Read more ›
