Jesus, this was so much fun. This is actually my first Metroid game and I'm so glad that I picked it up.

Don't worry... I'll end this. Once and for all.

Remarkably polished and impacting installment in the Metroid franchise.

some of the bosses were really stupid to fight the first time, but besides that this is peak

Well-crafted but formulaic Metroid game with a slight horror touch due to the (repetitive) gimmick of invulnerable robots hunting Samus in certain areas. Game arch, upgrades, enemies, etc. is exactly what one can expect from this nostalgia tinged franchise. The exploration is slick and streamlined to the point of activating my gamer autopilot mode. I found the bosses to be the highlight. They are hard hitting and it requires some amount experimentation to figure out their patterns and weaknesses.

nintendo needs to make more real games like this more often
