WOW! I've been playing games for 14 years an I completely missed this!

Such a great game, they defo need to do more Metroid 3D / 3rd Person games. Great story but I was a little disappointed by the last boss not being a Clone of Mother Brain. (I won't spoil what the last boss is)

So what was your fave part of this game?

Mine had to be the Ridley battle but I also loved the Speed boost & the jumps you do with it

An yeah I completed the game with 100% Items.

It's a really fun game, I enjoyed it a lot, but I've enjoyed all of the Metroid games that I have played. I need to replay Other M sometime; I haven't completed it 100% though, so it might be a good idea.

I've got a really good youtube guide that shows you where everything is

Thank you for the advice, but with games like Metroid (or as some may call it, "Metroidvania" style games), I make it a goal to find everything without guides. When I got Metroid: Other M, I had a lot of other games that I hadn't finished yet, so after I completed the game, I put off going for 100% at the time. I just need to find some free time so that I can play it again and find the rest of the secrets.

Theatrically speaking, Other M was very creepy, in an artistic fashion, heck I'm annoyed how few people realize that it references the Metroid manga very often and it clears up the confusion from some mono/dia logues in Fusion.

Gameplay: Sakamoto is genius with the more intense combat and some parts made me feel like an idiot on how to proceed which is the idea anyway.

Wait what?

People that actually liked Other M???

Finally! Usually when I try to talk about Metroid Other M people say that it was bad, Samus was having emotions, it's not Prime, blah blah blah... Seriously this game was amazing, though it did have a couple of bad things where I just got lost but other than that this game was what Metroid should be.

It was a pretty good game but they did screw up on a lot of things. The story was probably the worst part of it mainly due to the Ridley encounter but the gameplay felt more like a 3D version of Super Metroid.

I played it. Have yet to play Prime 1, 2, or 3. But I did complete all the others.

I'm with most other people on Other M being bad. It wasn't horrible, but it did not live up to expectations upon release. I liked it, just for Ridley, but felt that if Mother Brain, in any form or clone, whatever, would have been made it a best-seller. I think a lot of fans want to relive Super Metroid in a 3D sense, if you will.

I know I sure as Hell do. Mother Brain was a fucking beast. Excuse my language.

it was "ok"
yeah the story paints Samus in way too contradictory of a picture than how she is presented in other games
the game play is ok, switching to 1st POV sucks though, the action is pretty good but I felt I was forced to spam the dodge too much

but seriously Other M doesn't compare to the Prime Trilogy, that was amazing for this console

I'm surprised to see people saying how they liked Other M. I have yet to actually play my copy outside of the first 15 minutes. I've seen all the stuff about it and watched a Let's Play of it and it doesn't seem like something I'd enjoy nearly as much as the originals or the Prime series. I already know I hate the story because I've seen all the cut scenes. It's actually hard for me to look at Samus the same way after seeing the story in Other M. I think Team Ninja should just not affiliate themselves with Nintendo IPs especially considering that the series was already in the more than capable hands of Retro Studios. Seriously Nintendo should let Retro make more games. I'd love to see their spin on a Zelda game.

Old, and dead topic, but nonetheless.

First off, it was not Team Ninja's story, it was the creator's. Team Ninja did the rest. Please quit being ignorant and pinning the blame where it doesn't belong?

I loved Other M. I'm so tired of the emotionless, BA, shooter characters. She finally showed a weakness, an attachment, a loss... Yet overcame trauma's (again), and proved just how strong she was, not just with her gun.. but with her spirit.

Honestly, Other M is why I am now a Metroid fan.

I completely agree with this. Before Metroid: Other M came along, when was the last time that a Nintendo character showed real emotion? Skull Kid in The Legend of Zelda: Majora Mask for the Nintendo 64?

Metroid Prime was really good, and the original Metroid and Metroid Fusion games are just classics, but I personally think that Metroid: Other M stands at the top of the list. The only thing I didn't like about the game was the control set-up. I think it would have been much better if they would have used the Wii Remote + Nunchuk layout instead of the Wii Remote only. None the less though, a great game.

the only part that did not make sense in Other M was her encounter with Ridley
if Other M is set after Prime and Super Metroid, its kind of hard to believe that she would freeze up like that after encountering him :/

Kinda hard to believe? Come on... That's PTSD for ya. Unexpectedly, and dramatic. After watching Ridley destroy her family, and entire home.. isn't that obvious? Not everything, every time will set it off.

Not to speak from exp. or anything, but a quick wiki/google will tell you that much.

but remember how she encountered Ridley in Metroid Prime (2-3 times during the trilogy)?
and note that Metroid Prime takes place before Other M

why did she freeze up at a later time after multiple previous encounters where she beat him?

I would agree with you that it was PTSD IF Other M was set as the first game chronologically, but it isn't
