Is Metroid other M as good as SM: Sunshine?

#1rahxephon122Posted 12/3/2012 2:33:08 PM
It seems all I ever read about Other M, Sunshine, and Starfox adventures is that they suck. However, I thoroughly enjoyed Sunshine and Adventures so I'm thinking Other M hate might just be completely blown out of proportion.
The only other Metroid games I've played are Fusion, the original NES, and half of Prime 2.
Is other M worth picking up? (Please don't say "Pick up Xxxxxxxx instead" because I'm specifically asking about M. Also I know this is the wrong board but the Wii U board is full of Sony fanboys so this is the best place to ask for opinions.)

I'm pretty sure that it's a good game, it's just a BAD Metroid game.

Please give Other M a chance. It's not terrible in any way, except maybe in how it portrays Samus. The gameplay is awesome, much better than the Prime games in my opinion, and the story is pretty good too. I liked it better than both Sunshine and Adventures.

I don't mean a direct comparison. More like compared to the series.

For example:
Apples are to oranges as carrots are to potatoes.

Other M's gameplay is fun. Its story is garbage.

That's a lot of the reason why most people hate Other M. If you can get it cheap on eBay or something, go for it.

Anyone who says Sunshine sucks has terrible taste in video games.

This is how I feel feel too. Metroid has always been about exploration, but Other M is beyond linear. Hell, most of the time the door behind you locks so you can only progress forwards.

It's a decent game, but a terrible Metroid game. And I really don't want to get started on the story, so I'll just leave it as that.
