"Like every other Metroid game, you play as Samus Aran, a galactic bounty hunter who kicks a whole lot of Metroid ass. Samus has received a lot of upgrades which make controlling her much more enjoyable than in the debut Metroid game. Samus can now shoot in all eight directions, plus she can duck, both of which are brilliant additions to the overall gameplay experience. Also, Samus feels much lighter when jumping, giving you more control over its direction."
