Should RedInker buy Metroid Other M?

Yep! 79 72.48%
 
Nah 27 24.77%
 
Total:106

Personally I enjoyed the 2D gameplay of Metroid: Other M, more-so than 3D Prime which I find painfully slow and dull.
I don't play games for story-lines, so I just ignored that aspect of Other M.

My biggest pet peeve with people when it comes to them giving their own opinions about certain games (mainly Nintendo), is that they tend to ignore the positive aspects no matter bad or how good the game is (which is why I can never take Morgan Webb seriously as a reviewer anymore) and only (at least mainly) focus on the negative parts.

With that in mind, thats all I see (or hear I mean) when people talk about Metroid Other M. They bitch about how they made her into some kind of drama queen, or how they screwed up with her emotional side, story, linearity etc. If you enjoy the game overall, then good, But if you don't like the game because of all the little flaws it has, and don't bother with the positive aspects then you're just a whiny little kid who can't get his or her own way.

People can have their own opinions; thats their right, but that does not justify their selfishness. You don't see people bitching about games like Skyrim despite it's flaws (all the bugs it has).

Frankly the only real positives I can think of for Other M are its graphics and some of its music. So it's not so much a matter of "all the little flaws" but more a matter of "95% of it is flawed, so just talking about the bad pretty much sums it up."

And I'm more than happy to bitch about Skyrim's unforgiveable glitchiness if you'd like me too. ;)

Agree.  I tried to like this game, but there was so very little to like.  I wanted it to be a good game.  I wanted to see Samus's back story more fleshed out.  But what we got was terrible in almost every conceivable way.



Check out my Youtube Let's Play channel here.

No I wouldnt get it the game is terrible not even for $10 it takes something really terrible to destroy an entire franchise. The Metroid series is dead because of that game.

Terrible story,gameplay, soundtrack. Buy any other metroid game and it exceeds in these three things.



it's an excellent addition to any gamer, the only thing that I dont like it's the music it's boring, and for me the best games in the series is the metroid prime trilogy, highly recommended

As a game, probably the best "2D" Metroid game made. Story on the other hand.

Yeah I shoul'dve edited that part a bit. Thats really my point.; they seem to do this mostly to nintendo no mattter how good their games are, some will always complain and belittle them. Where as an hd game they'l give it an ok review despite seeing all the troubles, bugs, flaws etc. People really do have  love/hate relationship with Nintendo. curl-6 you can bitch about it all you want, just don't let it get to your head.

I know what you mean about the anti-Nintendo bias, it's rampant on many sites. You won't hear it from me, however. I firmly believe that Nintendo is the best  developer in the industry. Other M is just one of their mistakes. A turd among the diamonds.



At ten bucks, the game is worth, totally.

How many points is Super Metroid on VC? I've had a look at trying to get the Prime trilogy too. I really don't know why I've never tried this series.
