Metroid: Zero Mission

released on Feb 09, 2004

The full story of Samus Aran's first mission finally unfolds...

The first Metroid game just scratched the surface of the cataclysmic events on planet Zebes, and at long last the rest of the tale has come to light. Experience the first of Samus's legendary adventures through all-new cut-scenes and action sequences as the bounty hunter races through the deeps toward her showdown with the leader of the Space Pirates. But will the end of Mother Brain really mean the end of the story...?

Completion of the game unlocks an emulated version of the original Metroid game. Zero Mission also allow players to unlock the Metroid Fusion picture gallery by linking between Zero Mission and Fusion cartridges via the Game Boy Advance Game Link Cable.

Good, further highlights how incredible the first was as proof of concept

Couldn't stop playing till the end. I played in 2021 and it is a great game. Direct, no full of intros o other craps. Just playing. And I can tell I had to use a guide twice, challenging enough. Good music and good gameplay. I started playing Metroid Fusion but it didn't feel as good (for now).

A great remake that takes the original and just slightly modernizes the feel and checkpoints to make this an arcadey distillation of what makes Metroid games great. Phenomenal pixel art to boot.

(Only reason I didn't finish was because I don't have the patience to master the Mother Brain fight. On to the next game!)

What the hell do I say that hasn't been said. Game looks fantastic, plays amazingly, end of game cleanup kinda blows. Didn't stop me from finishing the game after beating Ridley before Kraid, and then realizing I completely skipped picking up the Screw Attack somewhere. If you haven't played this, I don't know what to tell you, except PLAY IT.
