Jeez, Squall would tell Samus to tone the angst down a notch.
That's fair. I forgot about the missile system. I can see what they were trying to do, but christ, that was awful. I give them points for trying that, though.Alakaizer said:The boss battles (especially the Nightmare, you played Fusion, you should understand why), pissed me off, the pixel-hunts nearly made me snap my Wii-mote, the cut-Samus's-speed-to-a-slow-crawl-and-lock-the-camera-behind-her bits nearly made me spew, and using missiles destroyed the flow for me, everything that was in it was either pointless or had been done before and better in another one. I've played all of them, so I know what of I speak.Avatar Roku said:I actually rather liked the combat for the most part. Except the boss battles (besides the one in the lava) and the pixel-hunt segments. Seriously, fuck those.
But hey, that's just my opinion.

The worst thing is (and the thing that utterly destroys Bob's Tabula Rasa argument) is that Samus HAD personality in Fusion. She monologued. She engaged in dialogue at one point. And she was so much better written than this.Deminobody said:Out of all the Unskippables this game is the most excruciating one to watch. Graham and Paul are solid as ever, but the story tries so hard to be serious while failing so incredibly! They are trying to shoehorn a horrible personality onto a Nintendo favorite. It's like watching someone try to paint the Eiffel Tower purple and green.
Edit after seeing:I can agree with Bob on the points that a lot of pre-Other M Samus was speculation by gamers. I'll still argue that the writing and voice acting, at least, are not done well enough to persuade people that these new characteristics are reasonable. Also, being that I've never played the game and am taking any first hand knowledge from Unskippables, I could easily be wrong.Swifteye said:I can do better than that.

Nah, projecting onto Samus was what the Prime games were about. This one is shoehorning a horrid personality onto her.vxicepickxv said:I think the entire game is about projection onto Samus, which after reading the script, would cause the voice actress' brain to melt, and turn into terrible voice acting.
Being fair, the marines DO also have ice beams.The Random One said:Oh my god! I knew it was bad, but it was even worse than I thought! Shut the fuck up Samus!
She should roll in and outclass all those boring space marines, since she has a bunch of cool weapons and they only have lame space rifles.
Hmmm... Other M is an extended metaphor for Samus' biological clock. Better than being canon.
Err... No. Don't get me wrong, I like watching Freeman's mind, but playing a character with that voice would be really annoying.Giest4life said:My sentiments exactly. Valve really should hire Ross Scott, if they ever feel like giving Gordon Freeman a voice.
