Metroid Fusion, Super Metroid and Metroid Zero Mission are between Metroid (higher) and Metroid Prime 3 (lower) on my rankings of the series. Right now, it's probably Super, then Fusion and finally Zero Mission. Metroid Fusion takes a more actiony and story-oriented approach than Zero and Super, but also is more linear. The 2D games already feel confined inherently, and the linearity just adds onto that feeling unfortunately. Metroid Fusion felt unique in having a mobile main antagonist as well as a chase for energy and ammo system, which I felt helped sell the actiony direction of the game. Metroid Fusion wins out in the 2D games as the one with the best story, having environments and enemy behavior change based on story events throughout the game. While I don't feel it has the best bosses in the 2D series (honor goes to Metroid II), I do think it has the most unique with the fast-paced encounter with Serris, gravity-manipulating Nightmare and the SA-X face-off. I am currently working on completing the game on my 3DS, but it will not move into a favorite spot for me, as Metroid Prime Hunters firmly holds that spot by a significant margin.

Super Metroid was okay for me... Since it's basically a clone of the original with spruced up graphics and a few different things I tend to like the original more since it's the Metroid I grew up with and remember most fondly.. This game, however, is a whole different game, and I absolutely am loving it! Nintendo would be dumb not to re-release this in the e-shop for everyone. It's fantastic! I don't care that it's linear in design and kind of leads you to where you're supposed to go, for me, that makes the perfect game, because you can still wander off and get lost in areas (like I did the other day.) Great game experience!

  • I'll try the hard difficulty in Prime 2 when I have time to play
  • I don't have the GameCube version, sorry. It would add some more difficulty with different controls.
  • I have never tried to get 100% items in any Metroid game yet. I usually end up with 40-60% items on first playthrough, depending on Metroid game. I think I take all I can find during my game, if I see one next to my nose, I can't just walk away.

Now I don't want to hear more about it. I can already believe that it's hard to beat Metroid Prime 2 on hard and now you listed more things to make it even harder. :P

This is my favorite Ambassador GBA release out of all 10.
I have played the orginal Metroid, Super Metroid, and Metroid II for GB, but this is my first time playing Fusion.
This game is amazing. Similar to Super Metroid, of course not as good, it is extremely fun, and it does has a map.

Metroid Fusion is the first GBA game that I completed (not 100%) both in its original cartridge and in 3DS Ambassador download.

That's not crazy at all. Other M will make alot more sense after playing Fusion.
I really don't get all the disgust that game gets. People are really hard to please.

I couldn't get into Other M. I enjoyed the fast paced action and boss battles, but the rest of the game just didn't feel like Metroid. The voice acting was average at best, but the dialogue / character interaction was atrocious. The graphics and sound design were good though.

I'd give it a 6/10.

Everyone knows the dialogue sucks in Other M. It's just that everything else in the game is great but nobody really gives it credit for it simply because it screwed up so badly on a more minor aspect of the game. It's like the Starfox Adventures of the Metroid series.

Another way of compaison is that the Star Wars prequel trilogy did a lot of stuff right, but too many people don't appreciate the bigger picture (pun not intended) it painted just because they can't get past Lucas's horrendous dialogue (that and Jar Jar).

I didnt find Fusions dialogue any better, not to say I disliked either.

@Link79, I had played Fusion when it first came out. I just realized how close Other M was to it after going through it again. I just dislike how linear they are. But im sure its nessicary plot wise.

Well i guess that's one of its down-sides, though the story is quite solid. It's not the Megaman-Zero series, but it's still nice plot-wise. What comes out to me the most is how the whole game has this "darker" feeling to it. Not sure if you felt the same :P But when i was young, during my first playthrough, i always jumped during the SA-X Chase scenes!

Actually a lot of people (myself included) didn't care for the gameplay either. Running through corridors, being led from point A to point B, and mashing the d-pad is not my idea of fun. :P

My biggest complaints are that Adam tells you when to use your weapons rather than exploring and finding them.

Spoilers

If you beat the game and didn't get all of the items, the game shows you where they are exactly on your map. Which eats away from the exploring concept Metroid has always been so attached to. Since ever.

/Spoilers

Also rehashed bosses shows laziness. And the music was awful. Because it was so quiet and so forgettable... Really I haven't played Other M since I beat it 100% September of 2010. And all of that was off the top of my head. :D

Seriously? Everything else is so much worse that it makes you forget how bad the dialogue is.
