I liked Metroid Fusion better. The extra color, sound, and easier controls were what made me like it SLIGHTLY better. The only issue was game length in comparison. There's pros each one has, like Super Metroid being longer, better environment, the grapple beam, running all fast like, and Fusion having more color, and easier controls I think. Both worth a play definitely, but I actually like the first and third Prime most...

Super Metroid actually isn't that long. If you know where to go you can really run through the game pretty quick.

Metroid Fusion is just a "go here and do this" kind of game, whereas Super Metroid is a "where the %$#@ do I go?" kind of game. The "go here and do this" kind of games seem to be popular these days, where most open-world games in the NES-SNES era were that of the latter. I personally prefer exploring rather than being told where to go and what to do. To this day, I still can't get myself to play Metroid Prime 3. Who do these people think they are, giving Samus orders like that? I'll put up with that in Metroid Fusion or Zero Mission, because it's still got the classic Super Metroid gameplay, but if you take the exploration and agility out of a Metroid game, how is it even a Metroid game anymore? Oh, right, because you're playing as Samus.... :P

80's music makes me feel fabulous.
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

Now I'm stuck trying to find Ridley, lol.

On the bright side, I got the Wave Beam (which I should have honestly had by now. I have no idea how I skipped it before), and I did my first successful repeated bomb jump.

The only reason I'm so excited to get Super Metroid again for the Wii U VC is due to its gamepad support, as I've wanted a handheld Super Metroid experience for quite some time now. Once I download it, my Wii U playtime is going to spike.

Favorite Game: Metroid Prime Hunters

Just beat Ridley!

That was intense! I won on my first attempt, but used up all my missles (both types), and finished out with a measly 60 energy left, lol.

I just beat it! Absolutely amazing experience! That final boss was incredible (although not as surprising as it was meant to be. 20 year old game + internet = spoiled ages ago).

Anyhow, I completed it in around 11 hrs, with 82% item collection. Not too bad for a first attempt, I hope.

I wouldn't say it beats out Fusion as my favorite in the series, or A Link to the Past as my favorite SNES title, but it was still a breathtaking experience that deserves all the praise it gets :)

Have you picked up the upgrade yet? If you haven't, go find it at Zebes as you don't have it at the start of the game.
