Metroid II: Return of Samus review

darkfact says: "Label me elitist, dub me curmudgeonly, call me “old school” to a fault. Certainly, I originally purchased Metroid II out of a sense of obligation -- the cart being the follow-up to my favorite NES game -- and with little desire to actually enjoy myself while playing it. I perceived injustice being done -- I allowed myself to view this black-and-white atrocity as little more than an outright insult to an undeniable classic, an effort lacking in heart as much as in hype from a..."

And guess what? "

ratking says: "Metroid had become a cult favorite, and an instant classic for the NES. Millions of gamers wanted a sequel for it, and the gameboy seemed the perfect place.

snowdragon says: "Something moved. What was that noise? Is something coming? I don't feel too safe walking down this dank corridor ..... wait, how many missiles do I have? Do I have enough? I haven't found a missile supplement in a while ..... should I keep going? Will a Metroid pop out at me? Do I really have enough missiles? Is it worth it to run back to the ship and recharge, or should I just blast a few enemies and hope for a few refills? What if oh God a Metroid AHHHHHH....... "
