Reviewed: Metroid: Other M
Producer: Nintendo
Required System: Wii

Nintendo, often, seems to be "the company that can do no wrong" for their fans. Sometimes it seems that a new announcement of games featuring their past beloved franchises is met by the same furor that surrounds a Steve Jobs keynote speech, Reality Distortion Field(tm) in full effect.

Every now and then, of course, gamers are treated to a reminder that the Big N is very fallible. In the Gamecube days, the Starfox franchise was pretty much torpedoed with the incredibly pointless, somewhat disturbing Starfox Adventures.

While the ad campaign was certainly there, the hype was certainly there, and the ideas behind it may be solid, Metroid: Other M leaves a similar taste in gamers' mouths - a notion of "really? This is the best they could do?" that won't soon be forgotten.
