Other M is not your typical Metroid experience. The tenets of this venerable franchise are desolate feelings of loneliness coupled with an emphasis on exploring an alien world, but Samus Aran's latest adventure goes in a much different direction than...

Metroid: Other M (Wii) Review

 

Metroid tries a combination of third and first person. Can it pull of both, or does it suffer from trying to do too much? Find out inside.

Overall, Metroid fans should definitely pick this game up to see the continuation after Super Metroid. Wii owners ought to check this out as well for a solid Wii title that's a lot of fun to play.

Review: Metroid: Other M (Nintendo Wii)

 

I know that the Wii does not have an HDMI port, but if you have an HDTV, I recommend you get a set of component cables. You'll notice the difference right away from the standard composite ones you are given, and you can truly appreciate just how good...

Metroid, even though the camera is usually fixed at an angle that would lead you to believe as such. I also want to point out that this is not a follow up to the Metroid Prime games, as the first person perspective is only one part of the total...

Metroid Other M Review

 

I'm no stranger to Nintendo's Metroid series. In fact, I claim to be one of its most faithful fans. Long before bounty hunting babe Samus Aran revealed her pixilated bikini in the NES original, I'd already fallen in love with the game's addictive blend...

It’s hard to completely fault the developers for their flaws because they’ve clearly made some admirably bold decisions to evolve a franchise that’s near and dear to so many. And while it falls a bit short, Other M works as both a Metroid game and Wii...

Review: Metroid: Other M

 

Back in 2002, Nintendo took a huge gamble with Austin-based Retro Studios on bringing the Metroid series into the third dimension. In short, it paid off, ending the series' long dormancy and introducing bounty hunter Samus Aran to a new set of fans....

It's not easy being Samus Aran. She's the most badass bounty hunter in the galaxy…but that's all anyone cares about. Everyone knows about her insanely powerful weapons, legendary battles, and the mass destruction she'll inevitably trigger. But they all...

When I initially started Metroid: Other M, I could not help but feel disappointed. Sure, it felt like Metroid to an extent, but something was off. That something was my expectations of what Metroid 'is' supposed to be. So, realizing this, I liberated...

Metroid: Other M

 

For over a year now I've been asking myself, what is Metroid: Other M?? Is it a side-scrolling adventure similar to the original games, or is it a first-person adventure/shooter like Metroid Prime?? Even though I've played through it, I still can't...

While Metroid: Other M is infused with a dose of style and flare the series has been lacking, the horrible control scheme and overly emotional story ruins the whole experience, making the game extremely aggravating to play.
