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.

    it's a great game, you can enjoy for hours exploring and never complete it at a 100%.

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

I just veryWhen it comes to completely engrossing, genuinely fun, and memorable gaming experiences, Super Metroid is almost unmatched. I just very recently replayed it and still thoroughly enjoyed it. The fact that it still holds up genuinely well to this day is an incredible testament to just how well-made Super Metroid is.
    There are some points throughout the game where the controls get in the way of traversal, and some rooms are made to purely frustrate the player. Also, while the bosses are awesome, some of them are far too easy.
    But overall, this is an absolute must-play of a life time. Truly incredible!

Super Metroid is one of those Super NESBecoming 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
