  • Metroid: Other M takes the best elements of 1st-person and 3rd-person gaming to create a seamless blend between gameplay, story-telling and dynamic cinematography, that feels like a movie the player can control.Players hold the Wii Remote controller sideways while navigating and battling in 3rd-person. However, at any moment, players can switch immediately to Wii Remote pointer controls to examine and explore the environments in 1st-person perspective
  • Metroid fans know more about Samus’ suits and weapons than they do about what drives her. That’s about to change. The story begins immediately following the events of Super Metroid, when a baby Metroid gave its life to protect Samus. With voice acting and a rich story, players learn the engaging backstory of Samus as she weaves through an action-packed adventure aboard the Bottle Ship, a decommissioned space facility. As she hurtles into this new adventure, Samus will encounter her first mentor and Commanding Officer of the Galactic Federation, Adam Malkovich
  • The development of Metroid: Other M is an exciting collaboration between Nintendo’s Yoshio Sakamoto and Team Ninja. Sakamoto was the director of Super Metroid in 1994. Team Ninja is the renowned action developer of Ninja Gaiden. Metroid: Other M pairs Sakamoto’s expert level design and exploratory focus of the classic Metroid series with Team Ninja’s signature stylish, no-holds-barred action

description

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.

A fresh view on an legendary franchise
Despite its controversial decisions on traditional Metroid gameplay like the linear map design, the cutscenes and the portrayal of Samus, Metroid: Other M is ultimately an incredibly fun and accesible game, with a simple yet engaging combat system that will keep you hooked until the 100% ending with his fast pace, intriguing plot, seamless transition between cutscenes and gameplay and believable atmosphere. Samus has never been as deadly and fun to play and each room has its own puzzles and secrets to unravel.

Enjoyable.
First off, I had more fun playing Metroid Other M than I expected. I wasn't sure how Team Ninja would produce a Metroid game and I had heard some things I thought wouldn't work. Though some of the criticisms I had heard are justified, none are game breaking.

Bad news first, the story isn't particularly interesting, Samus is a wet blanket and I never cared for any of the characters. I still commend an attempt being made to do something different with Metroid, but so far the previous isolated and lonely exploits for Samus is when the series has shined narratively.

There are two gameplay niggles I have with the game. First of all, there are some occasions when you need to scan the environment in first person mode to find a clue or some other macguffin to push forward the story. The idea is not bad itself, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. At times the target reticle needs to be almost pixel perfect to register and it is not always clear what you are looking for. The worst happened quite early in the game, so I actually though it had crashed, but it turned out that I needed to be pointing at the green blood that was on a patch of green grass - silly me.

As you may have heard rockets are fired exclusively from first person, which can mean moving the pad from a horizontal position to pointing at the screen. This is fine when exploring, but in the middle of a boss fight, it never feels intuitive and spoils the immersion.

As I said earlier the faults were not game breaking for me. For the most part Other M is a delight. Rocket firing aside, the controls are much better than I thought, in fact I like them. Holding the remote like a NES pad gave the game a solid feel and it often captured the atmosphere of previous Metroid titles. The controls are fast and responsive and Team Ninja have incorporated a nice dodge feature that is more than an adequate substitute for the minimalist buttons the Wii remote has.

Presentation and graphics are top notch and special mention must go to the fact the Japanese version contains English voices and subtitles in addition to Japanese voice and subtitles, so you can play how ever you wish. The Japanese release also has a cool outside cardboard cover, so any old school collectors out there should get this edition.

not about the game
The dual layer disc cannot be played on my wii. Newer wii should be fine. Mine is too old.
