$6.99 New at Gamestop
Imagine this game was free. Even then, it would still cost you like 10-20 hours, depending on how much you backtrack for upgrades, and how often you get stuck. The game isn't buggy or anything, but I don't think it's interesting enough to even be worth your 10-20 hours. The gameplay is fine, but rather simple. The boss encounters are unmemorable. The English-language writing and acting are not very good at all. There are better games you could get for $7.
However, if you're the kind of person who would buy Duke Nukem Forever, just to see what everyone was talking about, then I guess you could buy Metroid: Other M. If you're curious to see if the story is really as lame as everyone says, then go for it, I guess.
GameStop doesn't sell new games for less than $60. They do open new games, take out any bonuses that might have been included, and sell that as "New" which is more than likely what this game is.
i can't believe people complain
first is why isnt any nintendo game cost less then 50 then when there is one you say its not worth it but then dont ever ask why is call of duty mw 2 and black ops still sell for 60 bucks even with mw 3 out , no one complains ,
any game that is 7 bucks is worth it
Not worth it, because it will still cost you time to play it. That is something you will never, ever get back.
Not spending time playing a good game sounds like a waste to me.
I think the game is worth it. Even at $20 it's worth it.
I'd like to also point out that I'm disappointed in this community. You guys point out that buying used games is bad. That not paying the publishers and developers what they deserve is bad. Yet, when it comes to a game that is not flawed at all, that just apparently has a bad story, then it's just not even worth $7. What is wrong with you people?
I personally really enjoyed the game. It took a little while to get used to the controls, but after that it was a lot of fun. It is only $7 man, what is the worst that can happen - I bought Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter for $5 and hated every last second of the 2 hours I endured, so I lost $5, but no regrets. You won't know if you like it or not unless you play it. Don't listen to the naysayers.
What the hell...
You people are fucking insane, Other M is a great game and totally worth the price.
You can discuss the story isn't all that or the way they went with Samus, sure, go right ahead!
But the gameplay is solid, fluid and a good lot of fun.
I fucking loved the game. So yes. Get it now. They turned Samus into a completely self-loathing, sadistic and truly psychologically twisted protagonist, which I found was a major surprise and was a great alternative to the "Oh she's a great person, look at her helping those people, what a hero" route.
I am so goddam sick of the "buddy-buddy" personalities game heroes have (Nathan Drake is the biggest culprit), that Samus' completely religious and unhealthy dedication to a certain character in the game is kind of seriously awesome.
