'Metroid: Other M' - Review

'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?
