Metroid: Other M review round-up is go

Metroid Other M 4

Reviews for Nintendo’s Yoshio Sakamoto and Tecmo’s Yusuke Hayashi collaboration on Metroid: Other M started bombarding the net today; we’ve rounded up the scores for you below the break.

The general consensus is it’s a good game. Scores are coming in at mostly eights and sevens, with a few low numbers – such as G4′s 2/5  – thrown in for a palate cleansing.

Metorid: Other M is out on August 31 in the US and September 3 in the UK.

As usual, if you have a review to add, please do so in the comments section.

    Is Morgan Webb a Nintendo hater? Some on NeoGAF think so. I don’t know.

    Morgan Webb is a huge Xbox supporter practically anything non Xbox related will get attacked by her and Adam one way or another.

    @ xino..um read above it did not get a 10 by Nintendo Power my well buttered friend!!

    I got it on Amazon for $29.99, How you ask, well I had gotten a $20 game card in the past for buying another game, and I used it on Metroid..and for buying Metroid M, they gave me another $20 Game card towards the purchase of another game…so $29.99.

    I was afraid it would have issues though, any time something is handled by a studio that hasn’t been doing that game in the past, can cause issues!

    Bull!

    Whilst I can’t speak in Morgan’s favour, I will defend Adam wholeheartedly. Listening to him on Feedback and Soapbox it’s easy to tell that he is a fan of great games rather than consoles.

    He’s constantly championing non xbox games… Heck, he was a huge advocate for Uncharted 2 and R&C last year, not to mention SMG2 this year.

    You are a fool for thinking otherwise.

    EDIT: Also I have no idea why Morgan Webb is being mentioned as it was Abbie Heppe that reviewed Metroid. The video review is God awful though, the line ‘and oh my God it sucks for so many reasons’ makes me want to shoot myself.

    If the same game had been developed by nintendo alone it would have taken 10.
