Metroid Fusion (GBA / Game Boy Advance)

Game Profile

Investigate the research station and destroy the X parasite and its army of copies!

While lending mission support on planet SR388, interstellar bounty hunter Samus Aran is attacked by an X parasite, an organism with the ability to mimic the abilities of any creature it infects. Near death, Samus™ is saved by a vaccine made from the DNA of the last Metroid--the X parasite's only natural predator. When the X spread to a research station in orbit around SR388, a weakened Samus is forced to exterminate them all...or die trying.

Experience classic Metroid game play as Samus explores the secret passages of a massive research station teeming with hostile life forms. Master moves such as clinging to ledges, leaping to high ladders, and firing new weapons like Diffusion Missiles. Along the way, collect classic power-ups like the Morph Ball, Screw Attack, and Wave Beam. All these skills will be useful when you encounter the SA-X, an unstoppable X mimicking Samus, which is on the loose and could be just around the corner...

SA-Xcellent

Released a full eight years after its phenomenal Super Nintendo predecessor, Super Metroid, Metroid Fusion is a well-paced, tense, atmospheric game and an oft-overlooked GBA classic. Players assume the role of Samus Aran, the legendary bounty hunter...

Like cold fusion, only cooler

Metroid Fusion slipped out of the airlock between two behemoths, simultaneously having to live up to the legacy of its predecessor Super Metroid, which is a big Power Suit to fill, and keep the advancing Metroid Prime at arm cannon's length. It would have...

Metroid is a series long overdue for a sequel. Regaining relevance after the excellent Metroid Prime series by Retro Studios, it seemed like the franchise was here to stay. Unfortunately, after the highly polarizing Metroid: Other M in 2010, Nintendo's been pretty frosty towards the series and has been hesitant to...

Really good game. While I don't think it's as epic as Super Metroid is, imo, I still think it's a good game in its own right.
There was this one moment in the game where I found out about the SA-X the very first time I played it in December of 2002 (dang ominous music) that I was so scared of playing this game for years.
Yay, one of my review requests has been accepted!!

best played with headphones.... Anyone remember how creepy Nightmare (the gravity suit boss) was? And what the heck was up with the crazy chozo that was like entangled in vines? This game presents one of the most ominous atmospheres the gameboy advance has to offer.
