In a surprising move, “Metroid: Other M” for Wii breaks from the recent Metroid console tradition, crafted not by Nintendo but by the expert hands of Team Ninja. Famous for their Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden series, Team Ninja took the reins from the Metroid Prime trilogy and put their unique twist on the new game. Hold on to your Wii Remotes as we dive into the fascinating world of Metroid: Other M!


Other M stands in the timeline right between Super Metroid Fusion Fusion Fusion (yes, that many fusions) and Metroid Fusion. It starts with a bang as Samus explores a troubled space station after receiving a distress call. And guess who she meets? Her old military leader, Adam Malkovich! Samus and Adam’s squad investigate the station only after Adam says she can use her extraordinary suit powers. It’s like asking for your dad’s permission to borrow the car, only with more lasers.


Returning to the old-school 2-D side-scrolling fun, this game mixes in first-person shooter and 3rd-person segments. Imagine trying to eat soup with chopsticks, and you get the feel of the innovative controls. Targeting foes in 2-D is easy, like shooting fish in a barrel, while in first-person view, you can blast missiles at them like it’s the Fourth of July. And don’t forget the Morph Ball, which now comes with a close-up view that might just invade your personal space.


Customary to the series, Samus can get bigger and better weaponry by being a diligent explorer. It’s like a space garage sale! But remember, the rule of Adam still applies – you can’t play with your new toys until Dad says so. It’s a lesson in patience wrapped in an action-packed game.


Metroid: Another M brings you cinematic cutscenes and enough spoken dialogue to make your TV blush. Get ready to delve deep into Samus’s psyche, relationship with Adam, and military past. Samus talks more here than your aunt at a family reunion, offering insights and emotions throughout the story.


If you’ve ever wanted to see Samus dance like a Ninja Gaiden character, this is your chance! Her agility is finally on par with her Super Smash Bros version. Samus now has finishing moves, dodges, and grapple strikes. It’s a dance-off with space monsters, and she’s ready to bust a move.


If you pre-ordered the game, congratulations! You received an “Art Folio” with sixteen DVD-case-sized cards full of artwork and descriptions. It’s like getting dessert before the main course, a visually tasty appetizer to the delicious game.

Through these features and unique twists, Metroid: Another M is a fascinating chapter in the franchise, brought to life by Team Ninja. Whether you’re a fan of the series or new to the adventures of Samus, this game offers a delightful mix of the familiar and the fresh, with a touch of humor and plenty of action. Now, let’s play!
