MMGN: Metroid: Other M is a giant leap forward for Nintendo. They’ve never attempted to introduce a meaningful story into one of their key franchises, and been reluctant to develop their characters with genuine emotion and personality. For the most part, the core gameplay in Other M is fantastic. It combines the good from the 2D and 3D eras of Metroid and injects them with faster action and a more agile Samus. Using nothing but the Wii Remote does limit the controls somewhat and Other M isn’t without its faults. It is unlikely to surpass either Prime or Super Metroid in the hearts of fans, but it’s a good addition to a fantastic series.
