Metroid: Other M is an action-adventure video game for the Wii developed by "Project M", a team which consists of staff members from Nintendo, Team Ninja, and D-Rockets. A part of the Metroid series, it features gameplay in both first- and third-person perspectives, and is the first installment of the franchise to feature melee attacks. Other M was released in North America on August 31, 2010, Japan and Australia on September 2, 2010, and in Europe on September 3, 2010.
Impressed with the 2004 action game Ninja Gaiden, series co-creator Yoshio Sakamoto approached Team Ninja to develop Other M, while D-Rockets was brought in to handle the in-game cutscenes. The development team employed a simple control scheme to make the game more intuitive and attractive, and gave significant focus on plot and characterization, with extensive usage of cinematics and voice acting. Chronologically, Other M takes place next-to-last in the Metroid universe. The events of the game take place between Super Metroid and Metroid Fusion. The story follows bounty hunter Samus Aran, who investigates a derelict space station along with a Galactic Federation platoon, which includes her commanding officer, Adam Malkovich.
Well guys, here it is, my first console LP and what a start it is! Metroid: other M is one of the most polarizing games you can find on the Wii and beyond. A part in the ever beloved Metroid series, many fans were absolutely shocked and angry
about the way this title treated Samus Aran as a character and came to call it "not canon". While the story and presentation of it, especially the voice acting and horrible dialogue, can easily be criticized, the actual gameplay is quite solid.
Team Ninja turned the game into a very fast paced action game and employs some very great camera work to show it all off. There is a lot of love in the game and even if the difficulty is very low, playing it is very enjoyable once you get a good hang of the controls!
But enough talk, let's put on the power suit and hunt some space pirates!
