About The Game
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...
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!!
I can't find the game anywhere in stores, I can't get the 3ds, and this game looks so awesome. I wish this was the next game on my wish list!
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.
@WanderFan91 yay the music in the game is scary
One of the best game I've every played...
This was probably the best GBA game I had ever played.
