    Easily THE Game of 2002 in my book.

    Take everything you loved about "Metroid" and "Super Metroid" and imagine them magnified, modified, and improved upon. [Dec 2002, p.92]

    One thing that sets Metroid Fusion apart from its predecessors is a clearly stated and well-developed storyline, including, for the first time, occasional monologues by Samus herself.
  4. Hardcore Metroid fanatics may be turned off by the way the navigation computer holds your hand through most of the game, but all others will find an expertly crafted adventure title.

    While the gameplay is faster, and more responsive than ever before, MF manages to feel even more claustophobic than in the past. That's a good thing. [Feb 2003, p.75]
  6. Despite my complaints about the sound and music, and my half-hearted desire for a less linear style of play, Metroid Fusion is a great game that should be checked out by anyone who owns a GBA.
  7. It may be nearly devoid of the exploration aspects that older fans appreciate, but it is still a game that all GBA owners can cherish.

    The first side-scrolling that installed a sense of horror in my playthrough as a child.

    A solid title that captures the classic gameplay established in Super Metroid down to a tee! Challenging, intense and even nostalgic; Metroid A solid title that captures the classic gameplay established in Super Metroid down to a tee! Challenging, intense and even nostalgic; Metroid 4 offers gamers a taste of the good life and gives dear Samus a new lease on life. With a slightly different flavor than before, this new spin on Samus comes packed with some awesome gamecube interactivity unlocking the Fusion suit in Metroid Prime and the original Metroid game in Metroid Fusion. There's not excuse for not owning this. Period. Expand

    Another highly enjoyable entry in the Metroid series of games. Fusion is far more linear and story focused than the other main seriesAnother highly enjoyable entry in the Metroid series of games. Fusion is far more linear and story focused than the other main series entries, which I appreciated, as it lead to a number of engaging narrative moments. The addition of the X parasite as the main threat is great, and makes this title feel distinct from it's predecessors. Visuals and sound are top notch as is usual for the series. The challenge level is somewhat unbalanced at times, the difficulty of bosses fluctuates at an unfortunately constant rate; for some reason the bosses in the middle of the game are by far the most demanding. Overall though, Fusion ends up being a highly worthwhile Metroid game that builds on the series and takes it in exciting new directions. Expand

    Linear, predictable, main enemies far too easy, bosses too hard. Poor show.
