Other M Q&A

Postby Jesse D » 08.27.10 1:16pm

As you you may have already read from our news feed, our very own CapCom has played Other M to completion and written for us a spoiler-free review.

We would like for this thread to be used if you have any questions you'd like to have answered by somebody who has played Other M from start to finish.

Please bear in mind that we cannot divulge details about the game's story, items, revelations, etc from beyond the first two hours. Also bear in mind that this thread MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS so please read at your own risk!

I'm not sure if this coincides with the "only first two hours rule" or not, but it's nothing plot or game mechanic related. Just ignore it if it can't be answered.

If Cap has tried going through a second time, is it possible to skip the longer cutscenes that don't have a quicktime event attached to the end?

Is the ending time based, collection based, or fixed? Also, like in all the other games are there multiple endings?

One of the reviewers that posts at neogaf confirmed cutscenes can be skipped after the first playthrough.

Is your final clear time processed like the other Metroid games, where all of your deaths are negated as counting as playtime, and where you are not on the clock during cutscenes, loading times, map studying, reading scan data, etc?

Also, how would you rate the level design? There hasn't been much comment on it in reviews, other than one that said it was mediocre.

Have you tried playing the game in Spanish? Do the voice actors have Spaniard accent, or is it neutral?

This is sure to infuriate some people:

The game disc itself contains English, Japanese, French, Spanish, German, and Italian subtitles, and English and Japanese voice.
However, language options are region-locked, so for instance, in the US version, you can only choose English, French, and Spanish subtitles, and English voice.

Replay value?

Any visible potential for sequence breaking yet? (I love sequence breaks if they aren't too easy. Shame on Retro Studios for fixing many in Prime rereleases.)

Art galleries? If so, how many pics?

Couldn't you just switch the console's region settings to Japan, then? I don't know any Wii games where this has worked, but on SSBM it changed some of the region-specific features, such as trophies, to their Japanese counterparts.

Capcom:
Awesomeness scale: 85% - respectable, but not mind-blowing.

Pros

Third-person controls smooth
Great Exploration
Excellent atmosphere
Surprises and fan service
Cons

Plot is a little hokey
Over-the-shoulder is clunky
Some frustrating battles
Constrained, linear gameplay


Thanks for this review capcom, I think I will cancel my pre-ordered copy and rent this game for a weekend :)

Don't act like the reviews coming for this game influenced your decision to cancel your preorder copy. If you can still cancel in light of the fact that it currently has an 80% Metacritic rating with 11 positive reviews only 4 mixed ones, then your mind was already made up long ago.

I think that a 80% metacritic rating game don't worth $69 dlls,it isn't a bad game but it is a game that you should rent for a weekend.
