Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Abbie Heppe (G4TV): Metroid: Other M is Sexist

Yep, if you take a look at the reviews for Metroid Other M... you'll see some 9's, a number of 8's, and a few 7's here and there. You'll also notice a 2/5 (That's right, a 40% rating) from our friends at G4TV. If you'd like to take a look at the written review, you can do so here.

Also, if you want to take a look at the video explanation of her review, here you go!

 

Abbie Heppe is definitely not a fan of the characterization of Samus in the game, going as far as to say that it's sexist, and that "If I heard somebody say that they liked that characterization, I would probably not want to speak to them or be friends with them ever again."

Well, it sure is an interesting take on the game (and easily the most harsh review yet). What do you guys think?

Well the people at G4TV are definitely not my friends. Adam Sessler IMO is the only good reviewer they have.

i'll second that. isn't this a different samus? the other M! the other samus. so shes not the same samus

This isn't the review, this is just a video editorial expounding upon what they thought was wrong with the game.



...

I facepalmed a few times at her reasoning, "It's sexist cause a man is telling her not to use her powers" when you think about how she's still closely connected/taking jobs from the Galactic Federation she has to listen to a commanding officer, not that the officer was a man just a commanding officer of the Federation that gives her jobs  

I mean I hate overly stereotyped people/stories based on the sex of the characters but from what she described there was no blatant sexism she's just saying its sexist cause thats how it felt to her.  I'll play the game and see how everything goes down but I don't think it's this bad when a crap load of other reviews don't even mention it.

Well it's the reviewer elaborating on the things she wrote about in the review.  She brings up the sexism bit in the review itself.
