For decades, Samus Aran has been known as one of the first female protagonists in video games, and one of the most enigmatic. Having traded her haunted past for the solitary life of a bounty hunter, Samus finally tells her own tale in this revealing, personal story of her failings, her flaws and ultimately her motivation.

Metroid: Other M is an unprecedented collaboration that blends the slick, action-packed production of the world-renowned Team Ninja development team with the game design talents of the creators of the original Metroid. Metroid: Other M is a dramatic new direction for a legendary franchise and a bold new blend between cinematics, storytelling and the best in interactive entertainment.

  • Metroid: Other M takes the best elements of 1st-person and 3rd-person gaming to create a seamless blend between gameplay, story-telling and dynamic cinematography, that feels like a movie the player can control. Players hold the Wii Remote controller sideways while navigating and battling in 3rd-person. However, at any moment, players can switch immediately to Wii Remote pointer controls to examine and explore the environments in 1st-person perspective

  • Metroid fans know more about Samus' suits and weapons than they do about what drives her. That's about to change. The story begins immediately following the events of Super Metroid, when a baby Metroid gave its life to protect Samus. With voice acting and a rich story, players learn the engaging backstory of Samus as she weaves through an action-packed adventure aboard the Bottle Ship, a decommissioned space facility. As she hurtles into this new adventure, Samus will encounter her first mentor and Commanding Officer of the Galactic Federation, Adam Malkovich

  • The development of Metroid: Other M is an exciting collaboration between Nintendo's Yoshio Sakamoto and Team Ninja. Sakamoto was the director of Super Metroid in 1994. Team Ninja is the renowned action developer of Ninja Gaiden. Metroid: Other M pairs Sakamoto's expert level design and exploratory focus of the classic Metroid series with Team Ninja's signature stylish, no-holds-barred action

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.

 Not bad

I wasn't really expecting a game as good as the previous ones on the wii, and I wasn't disappointed. The game is graphically unimpressive and the gameplay is samey - the only difference in this game is that you start the game with all the upgrades you just can't USE them without being authorized (yup - ridiculous) The cut-scenes are pretty good and wouldn't look amiss on a 360 or ps3. Sound is functional - again, nothing amazing.

The wii remote sticker is junk - it sticks to the controller fine - just the parts that fold over kept coming unstuck - I tore it off after a few minutes.

An average game at best - like most games on the wii.

 worthy of being super metroids sequal

like many people i was a bit worried about this game mainly because of mixed media attention. i should not have worried and neither should you, buy this you will not be disappointed. its unfotunate that many people think the prime series are the best metroid games and that this game breaks from tradition. in reality the prime series was a flimsy interpretation at best of what it is to be a metroid game. other m then is the return to series routes but it has also laid the groundwork for bringing the series into the modern day. i just played the game pretty much none stop for 6 hours...the story, presentation, atmosphere....its all here. buy it, enjoy it. i promise you wont regret it.

 What a great game

The way this game plays is quite different than anything I have played before. The way you can switch between Third-person and First-person gameplay is brilliant.
Just started campaign but already very impressed with game. The cut scenes between game play are trully amazing.
