I went into this game as...sad to say, my first time to play a 2D metroid game and what this game told me is that I seriously need to play some more. This game is what the name Metroid stands for, fast gameplay, tight controls, plentiful secrets and then some. Some criticise this game for it's more linear gameplay(each level is broken into pretty big "sectors")and in my opinion that makes this game good for the Metroid beginner. DEFINITELY give this game a rent and more importantly a well deserved buy
This game is awesome, it had the same feeling as Super Metroid on Snes. Graphics, sound, story, and game play, are how every game sould be. This is the way Metroid suppose to be. Not that first person thing they have coming out. Where some little monstors biting your leg and you have to look everywhere, or get lost trying to look real good at where your trying to jump. Beat it in 2 days, thats how good it is.
this game has been my favorite since i was 7. i like it soooo much. but 2 things seem unfair. 1)you dont get to KEEP your power suit at the end of the game!!!!!!! the graphics for the power suit is the best part!!!!!! 2)you dont get to KEEP the ice beam either!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this is the only part that is messed up!!!!!!!!!!! so unfair after all that work!!!!! but, if you DONT like the power suit and the ice beam, this game is a PERFECT 10!!!! maybe an 11 or 12... i dont know...=)
