Yes


Lol, then you know nothing about Other M's development. Team Ninja only helped on combat, and it was Sakamoto's executive decision to limit the controls to the Wii remote alone, which is the primary source of the shallowness of that games mechanics in all aspects. Story and stage design were all Nintendo-side decisions.

Not Team Ninja has made the highest quality games recently (Ninja Gaiden 3 is not good, though Dead or Alive 5 isn't bad), nor do I have high hopes for Hyrule Warriors (it looks like stupid fun, but still potentially mind-numbingly stupid). However, Team Ninja is not to blame for the mess that is Other M.


This guy gets it. People need to stop blaming Team Ninja for the game if they don't know about the game's development.

It is understandable to blame Team Ninja at the surface of the game. Samus' giant breasts do scream Dead or Alive to anyone with any Team Ninja exposure, which is ironic because (as far as I know) Team Ninja had nothing to do with the aesthetics of the game.

Heck, even Extra Credits opens there "what went wrong with Other M" video with "you hired Team Ninja for story?" Immediately closed the video after I knew they were talking out their butts.

I have no problems with Other M other than the story. I am sure they have learned from their mistakes. Hyrule Warriors looks good. So far the Only Warriors game I think is better is the Pirates series. The story seems like crap in HW but that was expected anyways. These worlds collide stories are almost always generic and just an excuse to have characters from different times and worlds running about.

I bought Other M for full price on launch.
No regrets. Sure, the story was pretty bad but the gameplay was pretty fun and the visuals were eye pleasing. Needing Adam to approve everything is my least favorite thing about the game.

The very few redeeming qualities Other M has are because of Team Ninja.

Then we should be blaming Namco for Playstation All-Stars. I mean, Heihachi was in that, and they lent Santa Monica the model from TTT2, so clearly they're to blame.

Dynasty Warriors is fun, and Hyrule Warriors is literally just that with Zelda characters.
I'll be buying this game based on other Warriors games I've played and not because of any relation to Other M
