@Jebril i guess the anime style is because of Team ninja's influence. I went to the mall with the intention of buying this game, but i ended up buying mario galaxy 2. I guess i made the right choice. It doesn look as appealing as the prime series honestly. But as a metroid fan i think i'll still get this game. In time lol
It's not surprising Other M sold well. It's a Metroid game, or at least that's what it's labeled as. IMO however it's not a true Metroid game, it doesn't stick to the cores of Metroid that heavily emphasized exploration, puzzles, and unlocking abilities. The direction this game took made it seem more like an Anime than Metroid. The concept of authorizations seems unfamiliar to the Metroid series, confusing, unrewarding, and too Anime cliche. Samus has always had the ability to talk since the first Metroid game, developers chose not to add text everytime she fought a boss for a reason it's been the style of this series and it's part of Samus's character in this game. The monotonous monologues that Samus gives in this game seem rather out of character for her and overall she seems different almost too emo I wanna say. Which is unlike her based on the entire Metroid series. The graphics retain a cartoonish and unpolished feel for them unlike the Prime series and the exploration is sadly missing, why are missile upgrades labeled on your map? It seems like they really toned down this game for casuals which I'm frankly upset about. The game is too easy for me, I just held the shoot button in most rooms and it did the work for me no aiming or anything, nothing like the Prime series which took more thinking to play, the environments seem really bland as well, overall I'm not satisfied with the latest 'Metroid'. I don't really consider this a Metroid game though. Just my opinion. :]
wonder if she's the final boss. kinda doubt it, though. she looks a bit vanilla for an endboss, though by no means does she look easy.
