Super Metroid is without a doubt, the best Metroid game ever made.
They made up an excellent story line that flows right into where they
left off in Metroid parts one and two. This time, it's the same planet
as the first Metroid, but the makers of the game have expanded the
world. There are also new bosses as well. With the new bosses, you
also receive new weapons and special abilities. It is also a lot more
challenging than the other two. I would definitely buy this game,
and if you don't have enough money, I would sell my Nintendo system
and/or the two previous Metroid games just to buy this game. This
game is awesome.
Graphics 9.5 out of 10
The graphics for this game are excellent. Of course they are already
going to be better than the previous two Metroids, because it's on the
Super Nintendo System, instead of the regular Nintendo. Everything
about the graphics are great. The monsters look big and scary, the
scenery is amazing, and also the shots that come out of your gun
(ice, wave, plasma, etc.) look great. Also, in the end, if you beat the
game in under 3 hours, Samus takes off all of her body suit, and
Music and Sound 9 out of 10
The sound and the music are also great. The sound effects are okay,
but the music is great. The explosions in the game are good, and also
the sound of the shot of Samus's gun, and the monsters and the enemies
screaming sound so real. I would also say that the music in the
background really sets the mood while you are playing. And that's
Game Challenge 9.5 out of 10
The first time I played this game, it took me almost 8 hours to beat it.
I'd say that this game is pretty challenging. Plus, when you beat the
game, there are several different endings of the game, depending on
how fast you beat the game. Also, when you beat the game, you will
see the percentage of secrets you found in the game. You can also go
back and try to find them all. The secrets are pretty hard to find.
Game Play-Fun 10 out of 10
This game is so fun to play. Part of what makes it fun is, because of
the sound and the graphics. Also, I am a very big Metroid fan, and just
had to buy this game. It's only a one player game, but it's definitely
still as fun.
Replayability 8 out of 10
I went back and played this game a number of times, just to try to beat
my old time, or to find all of the secrets. Some of the secrets are really
hard to figure out.
Game Value 9 out of 10
I think that this game is definitely worth the price. If you are a Metroid
fan, you had better get this game. Everything about this game, you are
going to love. When I first got this game, I couldn't put the controller
down. I would play it forever, and I think you will feel the same way.
Overall 9 out of 10
Metroid one, two, and Metroid 3-Super Metroid, are all great, but Metroid 3
is one of the best Super Nintendo games i have played. I can't want until
Metroid 4 comes out.
