What Gamespot Users have to say about Metroid Fusion

  • Review Score:8.1

    A pretty good 2D Metroid, but Zero Mission is much better.

    Everyone misses the old school 2D Metroid games, and so when ever one comes out people buy it no matter what. However, this game has a few things against. First of all, instead of the classic Samus all alone against an... Read Full Review

    Just like Super Metroid (that's a good thing)...

    I paid: $17 I would pay: $20 ---------------------- Metroid Fusion is a really good game. It plays identically to Super Metroid on the SNES, and basically like every side scrolling Metroid game ever made. This is a ... Read Full Review

    Well, as it turns out, 10 years of first-person shooters and RTS's have turned my gaming reflexes into an embarassing puddle of treacle, but *damn*, this game was hard. Not having played any Metroid at all (I was a Se... Read Full Review

    Not worthy of the Metroid name...

    Eight years. Yes, It was eight long years I was waiting for the revival of the Metroid series. I grew excited in anticipation waiting for this game. I couldn't wait to get my hands on it! Then I played it. Nee... Read Full Review

    While Fusion is a somewhat short game, it delivers plenty of the shooting and exploration that made the series popular.

    Well, after several years, Metroid is finally back, and it was worth the wait. Metroid Fusion is an excellent game, and while it is not of the exact caliber of Super Metroid, it is definitely worth your time to play it. ... Read Full Review

    You really need to play this game, you really do.

    The original Metroid games were all heralded as classics by the general gaming community. They were very popular and considered state-of-the-art in their own time. However, after the series' third incarnation on the SNES... Read Full Review

    Most player's grip about this game is the part I welcome; I find the story driven nature of Fusion refreshing. I enjoy the backstory and the monologues. The appearance of some old friends was a great nod to series vet... Read Full Review

    The first Metroid game in over 9 years.

    Metroid Fusion is the true sequel to the previous title Super Metroid for the Super Nintendo. Regardless of that, you won't need Super Metroid as a history lesson... even though that would be a fun lesson. There's an... Read Full Review

    All you ever wanted from a Metroid Game and MORE!

    The game is pretty well thought up. It starts out with Samus's story of her experience near death and how a metroid vaccine was able to save her life. From the cause of this many of her suit parts had to be removed and m... Read Full Review
