'Metroid' has always been one of my favorite game series. I've played just about every 'Metroid' game ever created, the one exception being 'Fusion', and for the most part, I enjoyed every one. Some more than others, of course, but, even with the slight variations, they've all essentially felt like a 'Metroid' game, with the possible exception of 'Hunters'... and 'Pinball'. To me, 'Metroid' has always been about running, jumping, and exploring. Story has always taken a back seat, not because I wouldn't be interested in exposition in a 'Metroid' game, just because it's never been a focus of any of the games. Now, with 'Other M', there's a 'Metroid' game that gives plot a front row seat, but does it really deserve it?
