Review of Super Metroid

Super Metroid

     Super Metroid was probably one of the best games on the SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) for when it was released at the time.  It continued the Metroid series from when Samus (who is the main character) had a Metroid that hatched in front of her in Metroid 2.  She took the newly hatched Metroid to the space colony Ceres so the scientists there could learn more about the previously unknown Metroid’s.  But as Samus was leaving the space colony a space pirate known as Ridley attacked the space station and stole the Metroid and thus starting the quest to rescue the Metroid.  Over all, this game featured very good graphics for its series as it is the third game in the Metroid series.  This game probably set the standards for future Metroid final bosses because it made you feel like you wanted to defeat the final boss and see what happened afterwords.

             While I do have to say that the controls were very confusing when you play the game on an emulator, when you play it on the SNES it feels like it works better.  The music score complemented the game well as the Metroid series is well known and it feels like you are actually exploring an area instead of just hunting for enemies as what happened in Metroid 2.  In the upgrades you can get for the “Power suit” are incredible and that’s not including the weapons that you can get to further defeat your enemies.  By the time you get to the final boss you are well packed for a stranded final boss fight, although unfortunately, it will not do much good.  If you wanna find out what happens you will actually have to play the game which you can download off of for free.

            The over all score I would have to give Super Metroid would be a 9.0.  Because, while you can have a lot of fun in the game, you have no way to figure out where to go and you end up stuck for a few hours with no clue on what to do.  Then the controls do not transfer very well to other consoles.  So in order to achieve the most comfortable playing experience, you have to have a SNES controller.  But over all, Super Metroid was probably one of the best gaming hits for a long while so I would recommend playing this game when you have the chance.  So with all of this said, I shall now say goodbye until the next review.
