Forums - Nintendo Discussion - I think the 3DS controls can fix all the control issues of Metroid Other M

There is nothing wrong with Other M's controls.

@Rolstoppable, I also agree that a nunchuk wiimote combo will be best but please try to answer the questions I ended my post with

What? Why am I singled out? It's even more perplexing, because I actually answered both of your questions already.


Sorry, I guess I didn't read your post well. Correct me if I'm wrong, but in Other M, when in first person mode, the dodge button IS the attack button right? @SmokedHostage, besides the emotional story which is very non-metroid, what's the major problem with the game? I'm guessing it's that there are very few puzzles compared to other iterations but I won't be playing it till the holidays this year so I don't really know what the problems are.

No, in first person mode you dodge by shaking the Wii remote.  Shooting is done with the A button.

are you sure of this?? I don't remember anything about shaking the Wii remote in Other M. I'm pretty sure dodging in first person is the same as in third person, i.e. using the D-pad. Tilting the remote upwards to face the ceiling also works for concentrating in both points of view...

Yep, give it a try.  It only works right before you are about to get hit.  I don't think the game ever actually tells you this though.

The problem is that the dodge never works in 1st person mode.  All it does is cause you to waggle all over the place not shooting at targets.  Better to just play as much of the game as possible in the brainless "running around auto-shooting."

Scratch that.  It's truly better to not play Metroid: Other M at all.

Nothing about the 3DS can fix the trainwreck that is Metroid: Other M.  It certainly can't repair the character assassination of Samus Aran, it certainly can't patch the numerous plot holes, it certainly can't replace the story with a feasible narrative, it certainly can't give Samus back her strength, it certainly can't fix the worst plot device in the history of gaming ("Adam says ok"), and it probably can't fix the fundamentally broken gameplay.

Better to take Team Ninja and Sakamoto and drive them to the New Mexico desert and steamroll them into a concrete tomb to be forgotten forever.  Along with their shitty little game.


My question was 'Should the 3DS Metriod PLAY like Other M, the same way the DS Metroid PLAYED like Prime?'

I'm sorry if I didn't make it clear what I was asking.

My thread for teaching VGC some Nigerian slangs

Seems most people think there's nothing actually wrong with Other M's controls and since most of the complaints posted just seem to be about the story, I guess my question has been answered. Seems the answer is 'The 3DS won't be fixing any control issues as there are no control issues'

Many of the people who didn't like MOM have decided to wipe it from their memory, so you don't see them posting here. But remember, you got me to post in your thread and I've said everything that needed to be said.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

It works really wel on one incoming projectol, but when 3 or 4 are going your way then your aim goes to hell. Of course if you could dogde anyting and fast in first person view then it's just to easy.
