AM2R vs. Metroid: Samus Returns – Who Did Metroid 2 Better?

Fans are lucky enough to have two high quality remakes of Metroid 2: the fan-+made AM2R (which has technically been taken down but is still widely available online), and the recently released Metroid: Samus Returns by Nintendo and MercurySteam on the 3DS. When AM2R released last year, it was heralded as one of the best 2D Metroid games ever designed. Meanwhile, Samus Returns is being described as a triumphant new entry in the long dormant series. But which one is better?

Actually, that's not a fair question. Most Metroid fans didn't get a chance to check it out. I know quite a few who don't even have a PC (they have mac's or tablets) to have experienced the game.

After playing am2r,I would say Nintendo's remake would have to be very good to surpass it as doc did such a bang up job. Need to get a hold of a 3DS to see though.

AM2R did nothing but take the GBA Metroid games asset.
It nothing but a glorified fan remake.

Should not be taking seriously. Good lord Sonic Mania got these people thinking fan games are 100% acceptable.

Yeah I would love to see someone try to remake a Persona game on PC see what happen to them by Atlus.

What is code?

They also made some custom sprites. Samus actually looks different from other games.

>It nothing but a glorified fan remake.

It's a solid replication of original 2D metroids. It's exactly what people wanted from Nintendo, whom didnt deliver until recently.

>Should not be taking seriously. Good lord Sonic Mania got these people thinking fan games are 100% acceptable.

So because it's a "fan game" it means it can't be good by any standards?
Sonic Mania was developed by someone who did his fan games better than Sega did Sonic 4.
The fact you don't understand your fallacy here is baffling.

Fan games are fine as long they don't profit from it. And in any other legal standing Nintendo does have a right to protect their IP. But you make it sound like it's a sin.

>eah I would love to see someone try to remake a Persona game on PC see what happen to them by Atlus.

Yeah let's see what happens, I mean kudos to those who like to spend their time being creative and learning how to create something they love. You sound like a dogmatic nut who thinks people are going to hell over this.

Samus Returns on the 3DS wins. No contest.

Played both. They are both great games. I would give the edge to SR on 3DS. It's not a straight-up remake. It's a remix with new mechanics and features. Both are worth playing.
