Axiom Verge is, quite simply, the next Metroid game. While it might not star Nintendo’s iconic Samus, and while you might not roll up into a ball, make no mistake that this game is a spiritual successor to Super Metroid. You explore an alien world and have the local flora and fauna try to attack you. You upgrade your skills and weapons to help unlock new areas. Despite the fact that it’s not a new concept, it still works incredibly well and ends up being a huge world filled with tons of secrets.
