  • The game is great, the SE stuff is meh
    Verified BuyerReviewed by SandwichVerbatim - October 11, 2017

    This is a great remake. Nintendo has done a wonderful job of modernizing this game. I really hope they bring back some other games. They have a wonderful library to choose from. If you want a great action/explorer game with some pretty fantastic atmosphere, look no further than Samus Returns. If you google the EU version of the special edition, you'll see how a special edition should be done. The fact that the only thing that makes this version special is the coin is pathetic. The coin is great, don't get me wrong, but it's really meh. Nintendo should be embarrassed by this. I would recommend getting the regular version over this one.

  • Happy to Have Samus Back
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Rick - December 23, 2017

    It is very good to have Samus back in a more traditional Metroid experience. This is a good remake of Metroid II, which was a game that really needed a remake. The game features 2.5D graphics and has wonderful stereoscopic 3D. The gameplay keeps the original Metroid feel but adds new moves in such as the ability to aim more freely which works out quite well, as well as a melee strike attack that you can use to parry enemy attacks. This works well, however, I never felt that the game made good use of this feature. Parrying was a bore to do and was more of a waiting game. Over all though the game is a solid affair and any Metroid fan should jump in.

  • Gorgeous. Addictive. Metroid is Back!
    Reviewed by PKThunder - November 7, 2017

    As a longtime fan of Metroid this game surpassed my expectations. Samus controls beautifully, she has new abilities that freshen up the classic 2D gameplay, and the game is great for either speedrunning or taking your time and searching for items. Highly recommend playing on a 3DS system as the 3D effect works better than I've seen in any other game! (The special edition doesn't add anything amazing, just a sound CD with a pretty good selection of Metroid tunes, and some cute reversible box art that makes the game look like Metroid 2 on Game Boy. Whether that's worth paying extra is up to you. I like mine.)
