    Its a side-scroller! NO! Its a first person shooter! NO! Its a third person shooter! NO! Then what is it? Beauty.

    Man I am pumped for Metroid Other M. If anyone can mush three different game styles into one, its Team Ninja!

    Are YOU getting this game?

    I think this is going to be the dark hoarse of the trilogy (besides metroid prime pinball of course) I just wish the big N create an awsome side scroller for DS and not a mediocre fps.

    Hell yeah, I don't get the supposed hate ---
    Because they switched voice actors your not going to buy it
    Because it's side scrolling your not going to buy it
    Because it uses the wiimote ONLY your not going to buy it.
    Because you can switch to 3D (such as SPM?) your not going to buy it.


    What other reasons? If your really that picky, should you be a gamer?

    I'm getting a feeling that its one of those 7.5/10 sort of games and I'm usually right about these things. I want it to be amazing but I just think it'll be good but nothing great.

    That's kinda how I feel too. I have two main problems - the first being that, from what we have seen, we don't collect our items (other than energy tanks / missile expansions) - we just don't use them until we get to a certain level and the general tells us to. That kinda takes the fun out of a Metroid title. Second, I fear for the gameplay - it looks like it's going to control like a Sega Saturn game - the only way around that would be to....well...auto target everything - and that's just button mashing.

    Yes. That is why we have so many genres, and even within each genre some games do things very differently.


    "You mean you AREN'T going to watch sex in the city!?! What kind of movie fan of you!?" DYS?

    Never been a big fan of metroid games myself, but monkats statement that it "looks like it controls like a saturn game" has piqued my interest.

    Controls are going to be the worst part of it from what I've read. Should really have an option to use analogue, the Wii D-pad isn't great for these games.

    I am a sucker for Metroid from the NES days so this won't be any different! Hopefully Team Ninja do a great job!

    Watching the trailers, they've successfully killed off anything remotely metroid-ey.

    I just hope they don't do this to Castlevania [​IMG]

    Other M has Nothing to do with the Prime trilogy. It takes place right after Super Metroid.

    "Watching the trailers, they've successfully killed off anything remotely metroid-ey."

    You know this is what everybody said when Prime 1 was released?

    Prime 1 wasn't a metroidvania game, didn't have the feel of one. Retro studios worked their magic and made it good, however.
    Other M was supposed to have metroidvania elements.

    Retro should have never lost the franchise [​IMG]
    at least Donkey Kong Country looks good

    It looks pretty fun, but i'm only getting it if it's difficult (it looks like it'd be fun if difficult, or brutally boring if easy). So i'll wait while others play it before I do.

    Man, I was stoked for this game until I read about your guys' worries. Now I'm worried!

    You all make good points about not making it seem Metroid-y and whatnot. And to be honest, I don't think it's going to be. This is Team Ninja we're talkin' here. If you've played any of their games, you already know what to expect. Their games have always been known for their fast-paced, holy-friggin'-crap action. They'll more than likely pull it off and still make it awesome, but it probably won't be the very akin to the older 2D games.

    Heck, it's still not out yet, so I could be completely wrong. We ALL could be. But that's what I think so far.
