Metroid via Capcom (I know it's made by Tecmo, but the sensibility is very Capcom), Other M is an interesting game. Some of the new gameplay ideas (sideways Wiimote work), others don't integrate as well. (How about a railshooter next time?) The difficulty curve is skewed (far harder early than it is by the end). Definitely worth a rental; not worth a purchase.
Well I'm gonna start out by saying that the graphics are amazing. The graphics are so good, that you have to update your wii to play this game. The voice acting is also right on. The story is well thought out, that is if I could fallow the story and figure out what the main characters goal is. And the controls are kind of simple because you have to have your wii sideways to play. yes, no nunchuck. lol. but you do have to point at the screen from time to time if you want to view your area in first person view and target and shoot. So through the game, the wiimote go's sideways and then point at the screen. So the game is pretty awesome, but of course awesomeness means a lot of kick butt. And I mean A LOT! Really, there's like enemies on every corner of this game. And some barley even give you a fighting chance. And to make it better, the brats are fast. So if your really good about hand-eye coordination, this game will really test you.
If you played the original metroid for the nes then your going to like this game. If you go into this game never playing the first metroid or hated the first metroid then your better off avoiding this game. The controls are very similar to the first metroid with the only major change this is a 3D game and not a 2D game like the first metroid.
