Especially since other then the story, Other M is a solid game.
Only gameplay issue I ever saw was how the switch from third person to first person worked. While I can understand how that'd bother some folks, I had no problem with it myself.
Just... the story... I still can't believe that I had someone argue with me that it 'made sense' for her not to use the Varia suit the moment she entered the lava area.
Pretty much my thoughts on the game. Other than the switch from third person to first person (which I did kinda get to the point where I could work around it but never liked it...especially on the Queen Metroid fight), the controls really were solid.
But the story was rightfully panned. Even more unfortunately is that you really can't just act like the story doesn't exist. Not only did they make it prominant within the game itself, they added the feature of being able to watch it as a full length movie once you finish the game. So it's not like the story wasn't meant to be that big a deal. They really went to lengths to shove it in your face.
Soooooo...they make a new Metroid, whether it's first or third person...all I can say is I hope they forget Other M ever happened and just go their own way.
