Well i been suffering in silence for along time , i tought i was the only person that liked Metroid Other M (apart for the other million people that bought it).
And i've been wondering why do people think it's so bad, i'm not a newbie with metroid i basically have played and finished all of them (except the second one in gb) and i know it's not abad game by any means, the combat is great, it's fast and just like samus would fight if you control her right nothing can stop her, and that's what samus is supposed to be a unstoppable bounty hunting machine, so the essence of what samus is is there, a lot of people complained about the story how samus seems weak ,and whiny, like a little girl and that it takes away from the silent strong woman we now.
But is she weak? i mean she get's the job done, she cares about her comrades? well why shouldn't she she's human after all, and about following orders, well in that one i don't know haha , but anyway she's not weak or whiny that's what happens when you get your parents murdered in front of you, and she managed to keep strong and fighting(like batman) for reference heres' the origins comic http://metroid-database.com/manga/listing.php?vid=19
I think people see to much into it , and forget to enjoy the game the game is awesome, the fights are thight and the controls too, ridley is badass here,and well the exploration was there in a more simple way but , overal i think this game deserved better , it was a different take on samus, and a good one imo so i think people should give it a second chance and play it upscaled in their wii us haha
