I do think the controls and physics could've used an upgrade. They feel a bit clunky after playing Fusion. I agree that the GBA games have no soul though.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

I wouldn't say that necessarily. Fusion and Zero Mission were at least trying to be awesome interesting games in the series. It isn't like, I dunno, NSMB, lesser games in annual series like CoD etc. where no creative spark or anything beyond moneys seemingly had that much relevance in the process of making the game. Fusion's biggest crime was somewhat missing the point of what makes Metroid cool (which Other M completely overshadowed in that regard, regardless of anyone's opinion of it good or bad) and Zero Mission being hilariously easy.

Um the graphic and controllability are kinda the same quality I think?

Also implying that Metroid Fusion has the better audio...haha ok sure.

It was made 7 years after Super Metroid, so it technically does have better presentation by default, because of technological advancements. Are you guys saying Metroid Prime has the same graphics as Metroid Fusion?

I'm hyped to give Super Metroid a go. It's one of the few Metroid games I haven't played.

Boom. Backlog.

anyway about Super Metroid. I've only played through it twice and not 100%, which will I assume make the speed runners burst into flames from the impossibility of my existence. I do need to play it more though seriously. It's a brilliant game that deserves all the respect it gets.

I beat it fast enough to see Samus without her suit, and 100%ed it, but not both in one playthrough.

I don't know who is talking about Prime in this thread, seems like Prime gets brought up everywhere around here though. Anyway, your reasoning is Fusion has a better a "presentation" because it was made later? It seems you really underestimated what the SNES was able to do.

Are you saying SNES could have had Metroid Fusion on it? It seems realistic, but they didn't do it, that's the difference. I'm not looking for arguments which seem to be happening lately...

It could have been, but it wasn't developed at the time so there was no possible way nor any reason to release it on the SNES.

I feel that the SNES could probably handle Metroid Fusion very well. I don't remember anything from Fusion that I thought the SNES couldn't handle. The Fusion audio could definitely be improved. I like the Gameboy Advance but the audio is definitely its weakest point.

Fusion is what got me into the series. Zero Mission I felt was extremely enjoyable but Fusion will always have a special place in my heart.

I envy you, having never eaten a bad pizza, which you certainly wouldn't finish a slice of, because I have.

I'm excited to play this when they put it on the Wii U VC, as it will be my first time doing so.

Really wish i could play Super Metroid for the first time again. One of the best games of all time. Gameplay is rock solid, and the atmosphere is top notch.

I'd go a step further and say it's possibly the best game ever, period. It's that good.

Hear hear. This is my favorite game of all time. It's just . . . perfect.
