DescriptionIn the future, the Galactic Federation and the pirates of planet Zebes are at war. Pirates have stolen an unknown life-form, recently discovered on the planet SR388. The life-form, designated "Metroid", is in a state of suspended animation and, according to analysis, was the cause of the complete destruction of SR388. If the Metroid ever got loose, the alien could destroy countless other systems. It is up to the space bounty hunter Samus Aran to land on Zebes and find her way through the perilous terrains of Brinstar and Norfair, destroy the Pirates, as well as their alien enforcers, Ridley and Kraid, and rid the planet of the alien life form before the pirates complete their plans of world destruction.
Using the cybernetic enhancements of her Power Suit, Samus can use a range of weapons and defenses to destroy the enemy. She can also absorb enemies powers into her Power Suit to increase her defense and chance of survival. Using her weapons and special abilities, she must find her way to the central chamber of Tourian and destroy the Mother Brain, the mysterious leader behind the Space Pirates.

TriviaMetroid has 5 endings depending on the time you take to finish it. After the standard "Congratulations" screen Samus would flash, and depending on your final time he would: 1-Raise his hand to you (over 5 hours); 2-Remove his helmet (3-5 hours); And 3- Remove his armor completely and remain in some sort of leotard(less than 3 hours).
Now, the interesting thing happened on those two last endings since Samus revealed his identity, and showed us that he was a woman all along!! This was a major shocker at it's time and a closely guarded secret since at that time these things were very hard to prove and all the documentation referred to him as a He (I personally never believed it until I saw it with my own eyes). So move over Lara! Samus Aran is the original badass babe with a gun.
Furthermore getting the under 3 hrs ending allows you to re-start the game as an armor-less Samus! (just press start after the credits roll) And ending the game this way over 5 hours gets you a different ending where armored Samus just looks away from you in shame.
The fifth and final ending shows Samus without the armor and dressed in nothing but a skimpy bikini! Now that's the kind of reward I want in all my games!! And to unlock it all you have to do is finish the whole game under one hour.... Good f#&ing luck! Just cheat your way to the end with Nesticle or get yourself a very skilled buddy to finish it for you! That's what I did in it's time...
