  • Summary: The Space Pirates, merciless agents of the evil Mother Brain, have stolen the last Metroid from a research station, and once again Mother Brain threatens the safety of the galaxy. Samus Aran must don her awesome array of high-tech weaponry to retrieve the deadly Metroid hidden deep within the cave-riddled planet Zebes. The side-view action of Super Metroid will be familiar to many players, only now there are new weapons and items, including the Grappling Beam, which allows Samus to swing across large chasms, and the X-Ray Scope, which reveals secret passages.

    This game is a masterpiece. The music is beautiful, the gameplay is immersive and the boss battles are awesome. This is all I have to say, but y'know, 150 characters :p Expand

    Introduction:
    This is by far one of the best games of all time.I had so much fun playing this when i was growing up!The advancements that
    took place over eight years of impovement.At the time of 1986-1994 metroid was a great series,the original metroid was probably the hardest then metroid 2 that made alot of improvements but it wasn't the type of improvements that i was looking for.Super metroid deliverd so much more than it should have,super metroid could have been like the advances between FF5 FF6.But super metroid deliverd so much more and that is why this is going to be one DAMN GOOD REVIEW!


    Music:

    The music in this game was a treat to listen to.It's very retro music combined in an atmosphere that fits it very well and at the end of the day your feeling really good.

    Gameplay:

    The gameplay is solid,it's everything you would expect form a metroid game.plenty of secrets and items to collect and 100% this game without a guide is very chalenging.This game is easy but because this is a snes game and it uses one of the best engines in history.This game is know for it's many amazing romhacks and all the cool things you can do in the game to chalenge yourself,and all the special moves you can do like wall jumping etc.!Overall this games gameplay is surperb!

    Grafics:

    It's all the 16 bit goodness we all enjoy!The animations are very smooth,it may lag a little but nothing to bad.

    Controls:

    The controls are PERFECT,it is mario type good controls.It's not stiff or anything,IT"S GOOD!

    Plot:

    There realy is no plot but this is how it goes.At the end of metroid 2 aren found a bay metroid(the mother metroid)and she donaited it to the sci. something,but ridly comes by and steels the mother metroid and the planet that you explore just happens to be the same planet as the first game but only a different part of the planet

    Overall:

    Overall this is one of the best games of all time.Its controls are perfect it's gameplay is solid!This and always will be one of the BEST GAMES OF ALL TIME!

    Score for this game 10/10

    Very few games truly deserve a 10/10 score, but this is definitely one of them. The term Metroidvania is often used to designate game features originally introduced in this 1994 shooter platform action adventure science fiction super nintendo videogame cart. Expand

    You will hear it many times from many sources: Super Metroid is arguably the best Super NES game ever released, and among the greatest video games of all time. Believe the hype. Outstanding graphics, a killer soundtrack, an engrossing story, challenging enemies and a dazzling array of weapons make this among the finest action platformers ever created. If you've never picked up a Metroid game in your life, this is a great place to start. Expand

    Becoming new to the Metroid series, my first time playing Super Metroid was overall "Super Difficult". Super Metroid is one of those Super NES titles with a straight forward story that looks and sounds completely incredible for its time. There are many upgrades and new abilities Samus Aran will find and those become pretty useful to fight against the most epic bosses in one heck of a maze to explore to. It is a neat concept for Samus to explore in one planet, though I found the game to be pretty tiresome from finding your way through the map locations. It is one massive area that will confuse your sense of direction until you start getting used to the locations. A lot of people will say that Super Metroid is a perfect experience and the best Super NES game ever, but I have one major complaint I had while playing Super Metroid. From my experience in playing this game, I thought some of the controls were highly difficult to achieve. Those who had played Super Metroid would find the controls incredibly easy, but I had so much frustration controlling Samus in certain portions of the game that was important, especially when wall jumping was involved. Other than the controls, Super Metroid is still a great and addicting experience, but I think hardcore gamers and veterans of the Metroid series will admire this game even more. Expand
