giving up 'cause this game is boring as shit LMAO
I can only fight the same enemies in the exact same way so many times. Everything about Samus Returns has just been a drag, go on a DNA hunt, clear the area, do it again. Parrying was pretty cool until I realized there was basically no point to not using it, making every encounter nothing more than sit there, wait for the glow, hit the button, one shot.
Big 🛌 game, looking forward to playing Prime or Dread much more. 4/10. Either I finish those and maybe give this one another chance, or I abandon it completely and play AM2R instead or somethin

Um bom remake do Metroid 2, com uma ambientação e trilha sonora muito boas, sem contar o gameplay modernizado. Só deixa um pouco a desejar no mapa, que, ao invés de ser um único mundo interconectado como nos outros jogos da série, acaba sendo um conjunto de áreas menores (como se fossem fases), muito por causa das limitações técnicas do original de gameboy.

It's 2 stars but I put one more star cause it helps me sleep at night

Diese ganzen Modernisierungen machen das Spiel so viel einfacher, nicht das ich davor große Probleme hatte aber so kleine Dinge wie das Upgrades auf der Map angezeigt werden, dieses ganze Karten entdecken System sowie die anderen funktionen waren echt gut und das ich direkt vorm Boss gerespawned werde ist auch super. Jedoch ist der Konter so ok, teils fühlt es sich sehr gut an aber wenn dann mehrere Gegner auf dich preschen wirds anstrengend. Fick diese Fledermäuse.
Ich hätte gerne mehr Bosse gehabt als nur die Metroids, war aber dennoch supi. Kann man machen :)

Non solo ha rappresentato un ritorno trionfale dopo anni di incertezze , ma è riuscito a spingere 3DS ai suoi limiti. MercurSteam rimodella Metroid con maggior enfasi sull'azione e meno sull'atmosfera. Molti aspetti del gioco sono più guidati rispetto ai capitoli precedenti , ma si tratta di un titolo godibilissimo dall'ottimo ritmo nonostante il difficile compito di riproporre Metroid II col suo obiettivo ridondante. Ottimo lavoro che dire.
