While I liked Super Metroid, I can't quit heap as much praise on it as many would think. Other than the original Metroid, I could never get into the series. It works a great 2D platformer, but beyond that I have no real opinion. Fun, but not epic in my book.

"Super Metroid"

Super Metroid is a seamless blend of platform, shooting and RPG elements to create an absorbing adventure. The graphics are superb, the sound extremely atmospheric, there are huge levels to explore overseen by brilliantly designed bosses and loads of secrets to uncover. An astonishing achievement for the time and for my money, the pinnacle of 16 bit gaming.

Your rate for collecting items is...

I don't know that there's any 2D action game that has better sheer gameplay than Super Metroid. The controls were tight and every button had a use without the controls being overly complex. The weapons were diverse, but everything got plenty of use just in the course of normal play. The graphics were smooth, vivid, and detailed without the screen getting cluttered. There was just the right mix of enemies and bosses that required you to target a weak spot or something and others that you could just pound away on until they died.

But on top of all of that, the sound was INCREDIBLE. The music does a great job of setting the mood from tense boss fights to mysterious haunted ships to the deepest, fiery, ancient bowels of the planet, each song accompanies the setting perfectly. And whe...

Fantastic Metroid Game

My favorite metroid game, Super Metroid integrates everything necessary to be an excellent 2D shooter. Sadly, many of its successors have turned into more vanilla first-person shooters. This game contains nearly an infinite amount of items and power-ups to find located across a vast world to be explored and conquered. Also contains one of the more moving scenes I've seen in a video game (toward the end - you'll know what I mean if you've played it).
