Awesome game, in fact, one of the best ever!

darkcharizard2831d ago

Agreed. Anything less than 10 is blasphemy!

I can't remember how many times I played through it. Maybe a dozen?

If they released it as a new game today, I'd gladly pay the inflation-adjusted price. It was just that good.

always a big fan of the metroid games. This one tops my fav list with the original metroid prime coming in second.

Off topic, I always thought it was funny how when the snes came out the games had this "super" designation tacked on to the name. Super ghouls and ghosts, super castlevania, super metroid, super star wars/empire/return... etc. Then when the N64 came out it was all about 64. wipeout64, mario64 etc.

Shame they didnt continue the trend with the cube or wii.

This was one game that got it all right from the start. If patches exist back then, this game didn't need one.

Other than RPGs, Super Metroid and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night are my two favorite 2D games. As long as you count Zelda: A Link to the Past as at least partly an RPG. (Super Mario World and Super Mario Bros. 3 would be up there as well)

I can never get into these games. Need to try it again soon.

One of the all time greats. The game was dripping with atmosphere

Agreed. This is my favorite game of all time. So far my best 100% speedrun is 1hr 42min but thats with mockballs, shortcuts and a murder beam on Ridley. Haven't tried to finish the game getting everything normally since I was little. Might have to try that again. I have it on my psp so I can always have it on the go but I would gladly pay for it if it came out on a DS or something.

My favorite track in the game. I remember i would just leave the game on in the red area for a while and just listen to the music

Still play this game from time to time. It's still impressive. Does anyone know if you can download this on the Wii? I guess i could google it

Baron792831d ago

Yep, its on the VC and for $8.00 its a steal!

Joe Bomb2831d ago

Nintendo could charge $20.00 on the virtual console and get away with it for this game.

ArthurLee2830d ago

I wish they still made games like this, the last one I could think of is Batman Arkham Asylum. You know, find a new item and head back to a spot where you know you need that item. I guess I love long as its done right!

Epic final boss, with a twist!
