ZeroTolerance writes, "It truly has been a long ride. The Metroid series is definitely one of Nintendo's most prominent series among the core gaming crowd. Super Metroid is still considered one of the best games of all time in many circles. Still when Nintendo announced that the developers behind the bouncy Dead or Alive series were taking the reins on the latest rendition in the series; plenty were worried. Metroid: Other M however, doesn't disappoint as it manages to bring the series back to its roots while giving players a nice background story on everyone's favorite female bounty hunter."
