If you're a fan of Nintendo's classic Metroid franchise, you know you deserve this. You've waited much too long to be denied. Super Metroid was released in April of 1994, and since then there has been a nagging question in the back of your mind: When will Samus return? Don't fret. Open season on Metroids has begun.
When Samus lands on Tallon IV to begin her investigation of Space Pirate activity, the bounty hunter is stripped of most power-ups. It's up to you to explore the world and recover the many power-ups and weapons which gradually open more and more gameplay areas.
Although this is a first-person game with plenty of shooting action, the heart of the experience is highly exploratory and adventurous. Enemies abound, but there are just as many elaborate puzzles to solve as there are bad guys to blast.
