BeefJack: "I don’t think I can stress enough how far removed Other M is from other Metroid games. Other Metroid games are about adventure, where Other M is about action. Other Metroid games make you feel alone, and Other M makes you feel like a bad-ass with annoying friends. It sacrifices certain pillars of the Metroid franchise to present its own slant on it, and when held alongside other games in the series, Other M might not look that great. But when treated as its own action game set in the Metroid universe and with Metroid characters, it looks pretty much superb."
