New trailer and a plethora of reviews

Saturday, 28 August 2010 at 07:18 GMT

Another new trailer for Metroid: Other M arrives today - this one is labeled as an Action/Story trailer and covers plenty of each facet. Originally available on the Japanese Metroid website, this is the English-translated version.

That was the easy part, now for the hard one. Reviews for Other M have started sprouting up all over the web, and at this point it unfortunately looks like the game is drawing mixed results. Some reviewers liked it, others... not so much. I'm trying not to get too discouraged by the more negative comments, but if you want to check out some of the reviews listed below, be warned that you'll be finding opinions from all over the scale. I'll be remaining cautiously optimistic at this point.

So there you have it. It's been a long time since we've had a Japanese-developed Metroid, and it looks like this is one of those games you need to try out for yourself before deciding if it's hit the mark or not. Nintendo have taken another big gamble as a developer, but will you take that same gamble as a player?
