For many Metroid fans, Other M was something of a disappointment. Not a bad game by any stretch of the imagination but just not up to the high standard set by the earlier titles. It's not lacking in action but there's a slight shift in mood with a more streamlined feel, while the lonely atmosphere and sense of isolation of old has been swapped for breakneck pacing. Unfortunately the sense of urgency is regularly broken up by unskippable cut-scenes which can break the tension. The action however is excellent and controls perfectly and there are some great boss battles. It's not the best Metroid adventure but it's certainly worth a look. Thanks to Trilink at Hotukdeals!
