I agree that it has a fine collection of niggles alright - the aforementioned slow start, a some dodgy sign-posting, questionable controls, a story that divides fans and a few shit scanning bits. These flaws do impact on the game as a whole, but in my view don't come anywhere near spoiling what is a fantastic experience.
Clear some time in your gaming schedule mate and give it some solid play. Its a hard to explain exactly why its so good, but for whatever reason it will likely grip you after a couple of hours play.
In short it has got some brillaint locations and a superb atmosphere. The controls and combat really begin to shine after you get used to them. The story, I believe is great, and the bosses are superb. You go to some really cool places during the adventure.... I just love it and hope you enjoy it just as much as me when you get into it....
Funny comment, but I would genuinely like to hear a more fleshed out justification as to why you believe the Primes are so much better than Other M. For me the controls, level designs and gameplay are inhibited by the first person perspective in the Prime series. Just my opinion. I think Prime 1 should have controlled like a regular FPS, and 3 gave me motion sickness!
I'm not saying the Prime sub-series is shit - I enjoyed them to a degree, but they are nowhere near as enjoyable to play as Other M or the 2D games in my opinion.
