Should RedInker buy Metroid Other M?

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

If you can afford to throw a little bit of money away, then yeah, go for it. You'll laugh a lot with how stupid the story is. Seriously.

the gameplay is good, the grafix are really good, the story ......well
buy Metroid prime 3, or trilogy (if you find it)
if not buy this, not a bad game by any means, just not on par with previous iterations



Yeah its phenomenal. There just isnt anything like it. Its got flaws: boring cut scenes, annoying weapon unlocking, and less open-world. Its got real shininess too. I liked it better than the wii zeldas imo

I liked Adventures as well, dont get where all the hate comes from...the gameplay was more varied than Zeldas (NOT BETTER BY ANY MEANS), and the grafix more advanced than even SS or TP


My main problems:

- The combat was really bad; not only was it a "spam one button" to win affair, but enemies only attacked one at a time like in bad action movies.

- The puzzles just weren't cleverly designed enough to be satisfying.

- The spaceship sections were too short and painfully rudimentary.

- Tricky. Micromanaging him was a pain, and his voice made me want to stab a screwdriver through my eardrum.

- In fact, voice acting as a whole was very annoying.



If anything this thread proves how polarized people are about the game. It's truly a 'love it or hate it' kind of game. I for one loved it, and would love to see a sequel too it.

Stories in Metroid games always suck, except for Fusion; other Metroid games are very lacking in the story area and are kind of boring as a result.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.


If you removed the Metroid license from the game, cut out Sakamoto's story, and made it a sci-fi action collaboration between Nintendo and Team Ninja, IMO a lot of people would be praising it and asking for a sequel.

Team Ninja and Sakamoto should work again on something, just make it an original IP so it's not bogged down by the Metroid mythos and you'd probably get a pretty solid game.

I have to agree with you here.  I didn't mind this game at all, I just didn't like it as a Metroid game.  If there was another Team Ninja/Nintendo collaboration I for one would definitely be interested.



For £10, go ahead and buy the game. That is pretty cheap for a Nintendo game. I think that Metroid Other M is a pretty good game, it is just not a good Metroid game. It is unlike any other game in the series, so it is not really a good introduction.

Like others have said, getting Super Metroid from the Virtual Console would be the best introduction to the series. After that, start with Metroid Prime. If you have a Gamecube controller you can just pick up the Gamecube version. It should be cheaper and easier to find than Metroid Prime Trilogy.

It is not a good metroid game. Some aspects of the game are just bad overall no matter what the game (like head smacking against a wall terrible), what were they thinking with the first person view when you had to spot something to move on.

Edit 1 - I think this was a troll game by nintendo.

Edit 2- Yip as I think about it more definitely a troll game, its like nintendo did this making the game

So you like games with plenty cutscenes and story huh, well here are some cutscenes and story , hahahahaha.
