It might not look as good compared to newer Metroid games, but to me, the original is still the best of the bunch. This got the ball rolling with a vast world to explore that was challenging, but not impossible but also quite fun. If you want an old-school game to try out, this should be one of them.

Do Metroids Suck Out Energy...Or Time?

My first review for the site, I chose Metroid because of its well-known replayability and the sheer size of the game, allowing me to demonstrate my ability to rate a game. Before I start, though, one quick thing: my rating system rates each aspect out of 100, to kind of give a greater impression of how relative I feel one game is to another. Without further ado, I begin my review of Metroid!

Gameplay - 95/100

Fluid and predictable controls lend to a very strong game, which it takes even further by having a large map, lots of satisfying upgrades, and a memorable cast of characters. You start as a fairly weak Samus Aran, armed with just her power suit capable of firing weak, short-range energy bullets and 30% Energy. Right off the bat you're able to upgrade your suit with the Maru...
