    If you missed out on the NES release of this, be sure to check this one out. Multiple weapons and massive levels make this a great game to play in the car.

    All the reviews on here are complaining about how this is already on zero mission.So what if it already on zero mission. This is a fantastic game and needed a release as a stand alone game. The story this game started is amazing and fans of the series or the game.

    This game is awesome, but the problem is that it has already been remade on the GBA (Metroid: Zero Mission). On top of that, this game is unlockable in Zero Mission. Also, you can play this on the GameCube by connecting Metroid Prime to the GBA. So why would you want to spend $20 on this when you could a)buy Metroid Prime for $20 and connect it to Metroid Fusion or b)buy Metroid Zero This game is awesome, but the problem is that it has already been remade on the GBA (Metroid: Zero Mission).

  1. Provides an excellent source of platforming at a very moderate price tag. There can’t be enough good said about this title as it serves as a remake of one of the early titles that changed the face of gaming forever.

    A perfect primer for the rest of the Metroid series. [Dec 2004, p.148]
  3. A great game worthy of the Classic line, but the difficulty will turn off many prospective gamers.
