What Gamespot Users have to say about Metroid: Zero Mission

  • User Rating 9.1

    Metroid Zero Mission still holds on to the superb elegance of all of the other Metroid games--even if a remake.

    Rocks:<br /> Good control - great gameplay - great music.<br /> Sucks: <br /> Boring boss fights - Usually freeze.

    Since movie and game creators seem to get upset when people call their remakes "remakes," I suppose the best way of referring to Metroid Zero Mission is a "re-envisioning," or a "re-imagining," or...u...

    Wonderful but to short

    Rated on May 15, 2007 by Link9876

    Metroid Prime Zero mission is a very fun game. It is basically like the original metroid game. Although I thought it was a great game, and slightly addicting, it was very, very, short. This game would...

    All in all, Metroid Zero Mission is a must-have for Metroid fans and a great introduction for newcomers to the series.

    Finally I can play the original Metroid and actually enjoy it! Thank god for a map! Where the original felt like work, Metroid Zero Mission is like playing with a finely crafted toy. All of your fa...

    Metroid has become one of the best action series, and definitely one of the best, if not the best, on the GBAdvance.

    Since Nintendo has already redone almost every classic Mario game there is, they're now taking Metroid for a spin. Nintendo has decided to take the original Metroid game, revamp it with new graphics, ...

    My Metroid hunting career started back with Super Metroid. I remember staying up all night exploring Zebes' every nook and cranny. I haven't devoted so much time to a game since then. Every new ite...

    I never played the original Metroid on the NES and the only Metroid I played before this was Fusion when it was released a little over a year ago. I was pretty impressed with the graphics. They were...

    The extra parts in the game are definitely terrific and definitely bring new life to the classic.

    Metroid is one of the most mysterious and least understandable franchises in gaming history. Unlike most Nintendo titles, Metroid’s timeline is completely foggy. You’re always using the same Samus A...

    It's Super Metroid without the carbs, and I don't like the Atkins diet anyways.

    Rated on February 24, 2004 by -CANUCK-

    It's not that updating the original Metroid was a bad idea at all. And for all intents and purposes, Zero Mission does a great job of creating a version of the first Metroid that the modern generation...
