We’ve all come to this conclusion already as soon as a lot of us saw the Wii U GamePad for the very first time. It was either this or the next instalment of Pokémon Snap that was floating around in our imaginations… or both. Either way, we all knew that Fatal Frame for Wii U had to happen because it really is such a perfect match made only possibly by ghosts… most likely.
The wait is finally over and I’ve gotten my hands on the next instalment of my favourite video game series… but is this new Metroid going to stand up against the likes of Super Metroid and Metroid Prime? If you’ve been catching up on the news surrounding this game in the last few days, you’d have seen that there is a great divide of opinion… some love it while others are very disappointed.
Metroid: Other M is a huge leap in a new direction for the Metroid series… in comparison, the first-person perspective and slightly more action orientated tone that the Metroid Prime trilogy took was only a small step. Prime still carried a lot of the very traditional elements that make Metroid what it is and most people found this to be a pretty decent balance of new and old working together. Other M is likely to scare a lot of people with its new additions and gameplay changes… this is NOT your traditional Metroid and that’s basically the whole point of its existence.
