Action (Action/Adventure, 2D Platformer)


The first 2D Metroid adventure in over 19 years sees Samus Aran travel to the planet ZDR, investigating a mysterious signal sent by the Galactic Federation only to come face-to-face to an alien species long thought extinct, the Chozo. Finding herself deep within the depths of ZDR, Samus will have to battle enemies both alien and mechanical, as an army of E.M.M.I. robots have been turned into the scourge of the planet. More agile than ever, Samus will have to explore this planet for new skills and powers, as well as backtrack to discover newly-accessible areas for even bigger boosts. The journey will not be easy, but Samus has never been one to back down.

A Welcome Return to Metroid's Roots

A 2D Metroid platformer has finally returned to a console and it doesn't disappoint. Anyone who is a big fan of Super Metroid on the SNES should find time to give this a play.

Metroid Dread goes back to the roots of the series while also blending the updates to the weapons and game play implemented over the years to create a fun, engaging, and fairly challenging at times experience on the Switch.

The story in Metroid Dread can be a little bit complicated if you haven't played the previous games in the series but the game does do a decent job of catching ...
