[Wii] Metroid: Other M

Post by Magnamancy on September 5th 2010, 6:17 pm

Genre:
Action - Adventure

Plot Summary:
Samus Aran, bounty hunter, awakens on a Galactic Federation
ship after her final fight with Mother Brain (at the end of Super
Metroid).
After leaving the ship Samus receives a distress signal, code
named "Baby's Cry" as it's sole purpose is to attract as much
attention as possible, and goes to investigate.
The source of the signal was a dormant Bottle Ship, and once
there Samus encounters a squad of Galatic Federation soldiers,
a few of which she's met before.
After a fight with a large monster, Samus and the GF soldiers
split up to search for any survivors, and to find out just what
kind of danger is lurking on the ship...

Personal Review:
I loved it. Samus the Ninja Tank sold the concept to me, and
despite cheesey and nearly hilariously bad dialogue at times I
really enjoyed it. Very Happy

All Wii games just fail to start out with.. hard to believe Metroid could be any different.

Well, Metroid does have a great track record...

... And this is, in my opinion, a fun game.


Prejudices will have you miss out on a lot of good things.

Metroid: Other M

G4 Rating = 2/5 Stars.

Pros:
# Secondary plotline is interesting, engaging
# Graphics are very pretty

Cons:
# Samus has more daddy issues than Montana Fishburne
# Control layout is awkward and interrupts combat
# All the game elements feel disjointed and not fully developed.

While I do read reviews on a game (despite how biased they are), I wouldn't base my reasoning on whether or not to buy a game that I knew I would like.

The main thing I didn't like was that Retro Studios and Nintendo didn't work on this one. Team Ninja did a piss-poor job if you ask me. They'd be better off sticking with Ninja Gaiden from now on.

G4TV is the only television channel dedicated to video games... they are the authority.

Surprising how stupid people can be. It's a shitty game. Bad story, bad dialogue, bad game play... The only thing good about this game is the pretty graphics for a Wii title.

lol, there are reviews with weight at both ends of the spectrum
Death.

IGN
9.5 - Presentation
9.0 - Graphics
9.0 - Sound
8.0 - Gameplay
7.5 - Lasting Appeal
~8.5~ (Great)

Kotaku
Loved
- Samus Aran, cooler than ever;
Sites CQC attacks, stunning cutscenes, and her weaponry and etc.
that she get's over time while having a dig at the Authorization bit
.
- Mystifyingly Good Looking;
Generally states it's one of the best lookers on Wii, trumping some
Xbox360 and PS3 game's graphics.
- Samus' Non-Annoying Friends;
States the side characters pretty much fade away and let the
game become much more in metroid style of loner exploration, and
when they do re-appear it hints at what a team-based Metroid
would be like, and they enjoyed it.
- Way Ahead of it's Time;
States the way the game freely swaps between many forms of
presentation, as if someone who was filming a movie decided
what camera angles to use.
- Surprising Combat System;
Praises the controls fore allowing a great feeling for the combat,
but states that the system for jumping on heads felt a bit
imprecise. Switching b/w 1st and 3rd person proves to work well.
- Sub Prime Exploration;
States that the game has a few rooms that are as fun as
Prime's to explore with puzzles and such, it just has less of
them.
- Welcome Assists;
Praises the added Checkpoints and the Concentration move for
removing the need to collect pickups.
Hated
- Stubborn Controls;
Complains about the lack of a nunchuck, controlling an over the
shoulder camera with the d-pad, and the learning curve involved
with switching b/w 1st and 3rd person.
- Sappy and Conspiritoral;
Complains about some of the themes in the cutscenes.

Gametrailers
Average Score -- 8.6
User Score -- 9.1



That's the first 3 results from Google.


Also, could we have some people who've actually played the
game give their impressions/thoughts please?

Im with Death the Kid

Im a huge fan of Metroid, but i want a woman to be silent. Every time she talk in game, she only say obvious stuff and its really annyoing. daddy issues lol when he is not even his father. Apparently, She got all the skills from super metroid. Only reason you cannot use them from the start its because samus is waiting for adam's command before unlocking her skills. A woman in the men's world, an other obivous line that samus should had said in game.

Overall, no exploration at all. Regen system shit making it impossible to die once because its too easy. Auto aim, invincible dodge that make you being immune to all attacks, meaning that you dont need to dodge for real, you only need to hit the button and being immune to all income attacks.

Metroid other M, not made by nintendo, it had been made by team ninja. Id rather go back to Ninja gaiden 1 2 3 on the 1st nintendo, the time where they knew how to make challenging games.


Last thing, the reason why other website rated it 8 out of 10, its because other website are sellout. They get paid in order to review a game. I dont know about G4 TV, but most of the time, they are either honest or sell out. For metroid, they got hard on that game. f*ck the money, lets talk about how bad metroid is.
