From IGN: "If you want to know what makes Metroid so special after all these years, consider the opening moments of Super Metroid. After narrowly escaping an exploding space station, Samus Aran descends on Zebes to investigate the ruins of the pirate base she destroyed in the first game. It’s a perfect example of Super Metroid’s minimalist storytelling, wordlessly conveying the tense anxiety of exploring the ruins of Mother Brain’s old Tourian base amid rain and crashing thunder.
Such moments find Metroid at its best, effectively conveying the sense of fear and mystery that drives the series forward. Metroid Dread does its best to capture that feeling with its own opening, which once again finds Samus descending toward an unknown planet to investigate the mystery below."
