Metroid Fusion Is A Better Game Than Super Metroid

Super Metroid has long been heralded as the defining title in the series. Taking all the established core concepts of the franchise and making them bigger and better, Super Metroid represents the Metroid formula perfected, but not necessarily the best game in the series.

After nearly a decade the Metroid series was revived with Metroid Fusion, and the series was given a new twist on the classic style. Although Fusion deviates a bit from the traditional formula, there are reasons to believe that it is a better overall game than Super Metroid. (3DS, Metroid Fusion, Retro, Super Metroid, Wii)

Im pretty sure Super Metroid is the most revered one in the series, where as Fusion was universally accepted as terrible (except for this guy).

Can't wait to see HD metroid on Wii U. Although I'm not too excited for the Wii U, as soon as I see a Metroid in HD, I'm going to have a fit and go buy one.

It's kind of hard to say that Metroid Fusion, which was Metroid 4, was a better game, as it was a direct sequel to Super Metroid, (Metroid3). It was indeed an awesome sequel but paled in comparison to the console release of Super Metroid. Super Metroid revolutionized everything and introduced a new way of exploring in video games, so much so that even today, games are still using the Metroid formula. Castlevania is the next game that implemented this style of gameplay and thus the name "Metroid-Vania" is used to describe an entire genre of gaming... Even games as fantastic as Dark Souls, are described as having a Metroid-Vania style of gameplay.

So no, Fusion is not better than Super Metroid; a game that started its own style of gameplay, end of story!

I liked the GBA Metroids quite a bit, and only recently played Super Metroid... hmm...
I'm not sure, but I think I have to go with the handheld Metroids here.

I am also surprised at the negativity here from everyone...o.o;;

That would be a no. The only thing that comes close is the 1st Prime.

I like it, but definitely not as good as super. The only other game that competes with super is Prime.
