Metroid: Other M

In Pictures: 20 Must-See Games And Components From E3 2010

Metroid: Other M

Here's another must-have for the Nintendo Wii: Metroid: Other M. This latest Metroid installment yanks elements from both the first generation of Metroid titles and the "Prime" series, blending semi-side-scrolling platform action with a first-person viewing mode.

For the third-person mode, players simply hold the Wii Remote controller sideways while navigating and fighting. However, players can switch immediately to Wii Remote pointer controls to examine and explore the environments in a first-person perspective.

As for the story, it begins in the middle of the events transpiring in Super Metroid, when a baby Metroid gave its life to protect Samus. As Nintendo revealed during E3, Samus finally gets to tell her own tale "in this revealing, personal story of her failings, her flaws, and ultimately her motivation." Players will learn more about her past as she makes her way through the game's overall setting, the decommissioned space facility called the Bottle Ship.

Metroid: Other M sounds like the biggest, deepest Metroid yet.
