When Other M was announced I had my doubts that Team Ninja could do justice to the Metroid series. But I always try to give game devs the benefit of the doubt until I can see the finished product. After all the screenshots and videos looked alright, how bad could it be?

Answer: HORRIBLE! The controls are functional at best and downright infuriating at worst, you have no control over the camera leading to enemies attacking off screen, and the level design is completely idiotic, sending you to the ends of the ship and back for no good reason.

And the story...oh dear god the story. This has to be one of the dumbest, most generic anime-esque plots I have ever seen. If you have ever played a JRPG then you know exactly what I'm talking about. At no point did I have any reason to give a bleep about any of the characters...not even Samus. You want to know why? Because Team Ninja completely raped her character in this game. Gone is the strong, independent, silent warrior from previous games and in her place is a weak, scared, dumb bimbo who won't shut the bleep up. She won't even use weapons and armor she already has...because Adam didn't give her permission to! It also doesn't help that the actress they got to do Samus' voice sounded half asleep most of the time and the way they pronounced Zebes in this game made me cringe every single time.

About the only good thing I have to say about the game is that the pre-rendered cutscenes are very nice looking but again everything else is so putrid it's hard to enjoy them. Honestly I went into this knowing it was going to be bad, and oh boy was it ever. If Nintendo has any sense they will retcon this disaster completely and never let Team Ninja touch any of their IP's ever again. Because clearly they are only good at making softcore pron for preteens without internet access.
