Rely on Horror states: "This is something I just had to get out of my chest. It seems to be a growing trend among ‘professonal’ reviewers to compare the current iteration of a proven franchise to the crowning achievement of said franchise. For example, and as this article’s title indicates, Metroid Other M and Super Metroid. Other M is a full fledged sequel to one of the best games of all time, Super Metroid. Making a sequel to a game that has received such accolades requires not only a lot of guts but a lot of courage as well,courage to take risks. Reason being, honestly, chances are the sequel isn’t going to be able to capture that same magic that the original did back in its time."
