Summary

Bring back my baby!!!!

The Good

What's not to like about this game? Graphics, sounds, music, difficulty, it's all perfect. Anybody will instantly fall in love with this game, including hardcore Michael Jackson fans. (Samus can moonwalk!) From what the description didn't tell you, Samus encouners a metroid egg (after the end of the game boy metroid) and after this egg hatches, the hatchling acts just like a bird, and presumes Samus is the mother. The game becomes a sort of "Pissed parent" sort of thing, which makes the hatchling a very vital part of the games end. Just remember to either search Planet Zebes inch by inch for every power up, or finish the game REALLY FAST. These will get you the best ending. Also, don't forget, all of the little freaks on the planet are pirates. They deserve to die just as much as the bosses.

The Bad

There is nothing I didn't like about this game, not one flaw.
