Super Metroid review
The Revolution of the Metroid Series

The good:

Graphics, Music, Plot, Levels, Powerups, Challenge, just about everything

The bad:



This is the third installment of the ever-popular, Metroid series, but its the one that changed Metroid forever. It was the first Metroid game to introduce awesome powerups like the Super Missiles, Power Bombs, the Charge Beam, Gravity Suit, Speed Booster, the mapping system, etc.

It has tons of hidden items and secret areas. The bosses are very well made and challenging. Each power-up and boss you defeat unlocks something new in the game. The music and graphics are spectacular as well for the SNES system. All of the old areas of Zebes from the original Metroid, Brinstar, Norfair, and Tourian are back as well as three new ones, Crateria, water world Maridia, and the mysterious Wrecked Ship. All of the areas are extremely large and have much to cover and explore. The plot itself is simple, yet has a lot of depth. Ridley and Kraid are back, and just as powerful as ever. And like always, the game has several different endings depending on just how quickly you manage to complete the game.

For any Metroid fan, this game is a must-have. It is easily one of the best games in the Metroid series, if not the best.
