Summary

Keep'em coming, Nintendo!

The Good

The controls caught me on the most, and also the detailed graphics. The physics are a bit different from Metroid Fushion and goes back to original Metroid roots. I love how Samus always holds her gun with her right hand. I love how the enemies are perfectly balanced. I love the suspense around every locked hatch. Basically, I love everything about this game. Nintendo has made me proud, and it's a surefire thing that such a long expanding franchise won't die out.

The Bad

The gameplay is so addicting that it is beatable in a few days, so it is kinda short. Nothing else is wrong.

The Bottom Line

If you love Metroid games, the addiction is back. If you have a GBA, then by all means buy this now! Why are you wasting time reading this? Time for good ol' fashioned 2-D side scrolling shooter action!
