    Metroid 2 is one of the best games I’ve ever played, and probably the best GameBoy game I’ve ever played. The great thing about this game is how much they improved on the first game. The graphics ...

    Worth tracking down for Metroid fans. If you aren't a fan, this won't change your mind, and is better off skipping.

    If you have any compatible Gameboy unit, this title belongs in your collection. Metroid 2 pits Samus Aran against the metroids, this time on their home world. And this time, they'll mutate into se...

    When I picked this game up I was like, "here it goes, this game is going to ruin the Metroid series for me." But it really took me by suprise, it introduced many of Samus's advanced weapons (ex. spide...

    Metroid 2 is a huge improvment over the original in almost every way, but it is still far from perfect.

    Rated on July 01, 2007 by darthblob10

    The original Metroid is considered by many as a classic and one of the greatest games ever made. To me however, I think it is dated, boring, has terrible boss battles,and is ridiculously hard. So I wa...
