5 Metroid goes back to it's roots and it's ace!dragonlord | 09/09/2010 | See all dragonlord's reviews (442)Top 10 Reviewer Top 10 DVD Reviewer Number 1 Games Reviewer Top 10 Music Reviewer Top 100 Books Reviewer Top 100 Clothing Reviewer I have got great memories of playing Super Metriod on the SNES many years ago and as much as I really enjoyed playing the Metriod Prime trilogy, I always liked the idea of a Metriod game more in the style of Super Metriod again. At last Nintendo have given us Metriod: Other M which goes back to the Metriod roots and has lots of it's own fresh ideals too which will please us older fans but it might upset the newer Prime fans a little bit.The controls for Samus are nice and easy, when you are holding the Wii Remote horizontally you can run around the levels and shoot anything that gets in your way. If you point the Wii Remote at the tv screen then Samus goes into 1st person view and you can search for hidden passages/objects and blast enemies whilst standing still. To turn into the Morph Ball press button A whilst holding the Wii Remote horizontally. The control pad is used for walking/running, Button 1 is fire and button 2 is jump. Samus has some really cool special moves for running, jumping and fighting which are as follows: Speed Booster, Shinespark, Space Jump, Screw Attack, Kick Climb, Sense Move, Lethal Strike and Overblast.The graphics in Metriod: Other M are most excellent and some of the bosses are very impressive looking and hard to beat. The music score creates a great atmosphere for the game and I found the story to be interesting which goes back into Samus Aran's past. The safe points are fairly close together which means progress isn't to difficult. I think the best way to sum up Metriod: Other M is to say it's a cross between Super Metriod and the God Of War games which is something really impressive to say about a game really. I personal like this game nearly as much as Super Mario Galaxy 2 and feel it's the 2nd best Wii game to come out this year so far.
