I just completed Fusion and was shocked to see Adam Malkovich mentioned so much. Not only that but this game was definitely the first that was more story driven and started to show the softer side of the Samus character.
Wasn't that the main complaint about Other M? How the hell did the negative reviewers not see this?
Maybe it's just that I played Fusion after Other M and can see the connections easier but it's clear to me that Nintendo always intended Samus to have a softer side.
Fusions cool btw, prob my least fav of the series and I've played them all apart from Prime2 and Hunters. I'd give it 7.5/10
