Summarydarn good metroid game..
The GoodThis metroid game is extremely hard and makes you feel like your completely isolated. it is a brilliant platformer though, and gives you a great sense of achievement when you defeat that god damn huge annoying metroid.
The story is pretty basic, and probably the most linear of the series, you take control of the bounty hunter and must exterminate all the metroid's. its a rather boring idea and you will find yourself trying so desperately to find that last metroid you missed so easily. However the puzzles are great and it still offers much of the classic metroid action around.
The Badthe game, like most metroid games, just let you find your own way of getting through the story without any help. But since this is on the game boy its incredibly hard to know how many metroid's you need to defeat to get the water level to decrease. I found myself many times, lost in the design of the levels and i coulden't pull up a map or get any help resulting in frustration.
