There are few games that I would class as truly essential, games that are indispensable as both entertainment and as milestones along the road of videogaming history. Games that everyone should play. Super Metroid is one of those few.

Super Metroid is one of the greatest SNES games ever made. And not only that, it's probably also the best Metroid game ever made (The only one that even comes close is Metroid Prime, if you ask me!). If you've never played a classic (Non-Prime) Metroid game before, Super Metroid is the one to start with. Don't miss this one - You'll be sorry!

"Super Metroid" überzeugt auch heute noch mit seinem Charme und dem gelungenen Gameplay. Es macht einfach großen Spaß, völlig auf sich allein gestellt einen scheinbar riesigen Planeten zu erkunden, sich dabei nach und nach aufzurüsten und immer tiefer in unbekannte Gebiete vorzustoßen. Grafik und Sound erschaffen eine sehr dichte Atmosphäre und ihr werdet zunehmend in den Bann des Spiels gezogen, der euch bis zum Abspann nicht mehr loslässt. Zu bemängeln sind lediglich die Try&Error-Stellen und die teilweise kniffligen Sprungeinlagen. Wer sich daran nicht stört, wird ein sehr intensives und grandioses Abenteuer erleben. Für 800 Punkte bekommt ihr hier einen Klassiker der Videospielgeschichte, den man auf keinen Fall verpassen sollte.
Even 13 years after its original release, Super Metroid still remains to be one of the greatest 2D adventure games of all time. It’s only real flaw is that it is a bit on the short side if you’re the kind of person who simply plays a game to completion once and then is done with it. However, the core gameplay of Super Metroid is so good that it’s one of those games you will likely find yourself coming back to again and again, each time trying to bring that completion time down and your collection rate up.

If you've never played Super Metroid, you owe it to yourself as a gamer to finally find out about what you've been missing all these years. And if you have played Super Metroid, you've probably already taken the 800 Wii Point plunge and downloaded it to your channel array, where it deserves nothing less than a spot of honored prestige on Screen 1. Maybe right next to that Mii Channel.

Czy warto zatem ściągnąć ten stary hit? Oczywiście, że tak! Dziś to jedna z najlepszych gier, jakie są dostępne na Virtual Console i jedna z najlepszych pozycji, jakie kiedykolwiek zostały wydane. Bez wątpienia można też powiedzieć, że to najlepszy Metroid 2D i polecam go zarówno fanom serii jak i tym, którzy nigdy w nią nie grali. Nikt się nie zawiedzie. Masz 800 Wii Points, to ściągaj Super Metroida, a jeśli nie masz, to absolutnie warto się w nie zaopatrzyć.

Anyone who's played Super Metroid before already knows how great it is. If you haven't delved into the planet Zebes, but you enjoy action games or you've been itching to explore Samus' 2D roots after playing the Metroid Prime series, this is the place to start. Don't worry about the original NES version of Metroid that's also available in the Virtual Console shop. Super Metroid recounts its threadbare story in the opening screen and is better in literally every conceivable way.
Game Positive (Aug 29, 2007)
Ultimately, do not expect anything new to be added to the formula, as Virtual Console releases are effectively the original games played on an emulator. You'll find no new weapons, no new enemies, and no minor fixes or new graphics. Still, for the 800 Wii Points, those interested in a classic Metroid adventure should definitely check out this game.
