I've never played any of the pre-Metroid Prime titles, (the 2D sidescrollers) and it's been said that Other M may return to those 2D roots. If so, what can I expect? Is there any chance there'll be puzzle-solving to be done, as in the 3D titles, or were the older games all purely action orientated with a little exploration?
Either way, I'm looking forward to this very much. I just hope the cutscenes and story don't take precedence over the gameplay - even the Metroid Prime trilogy, for all its detail and intricacies in its story, didn't force it upon the player. It was left for you to discover yourself.
