Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Played Super Metroid for the first time ever...

... and I love it!

I never was a fan of Nintendos own games back in the NES days. I didn´t like Zelda, Super Mario or Metroid but did go through them. I suppose a big part of my negative attitude came from me being a SEGA fan.

So, naturally I assumed I wouldn´t like their SNES counterparts. I have, however, now started playing through Super Metroid (just got the lava suit) and it is utterly amazing! The setting, music and graphics really pull you in. You also grow into this super hero gradually and just feel more and more superior.

It feels like a whole new world of gaming has opened up for me and I look forward to playing A Link to the Past, Castlevania and the likes soon enough.

I just wanted to share this great experience! Hope you too have found gems on consoles you previously didn´t like/play on! :)

What is you favorite Super Metroid memory?

I remember playing Super Metroid for the first time in '97 and I was so damn hooked! It's my 2nd favorite Metroid game, only after the first Prime!

Yeah, I´ve played through the first one but it was a long time ago, guess I will have to do it again :).



Play Prime 1 (and then the others as well, all good but Prime 1 was a masterpiece), if you can find the whole Trilogy release get that and play it on the Wii.

Super Metroid was awesome back in the day. Nowadays I just can't play it. I've become used to Fusion and Zero Mission's tight controls that I just can't go back to playing the floaty Super Metroid, which is one of the reasons I want Metroid Super Mission!

Still waiting for them Metroid games :/

my favouraite moment was running full speed breaking walls but gameplay wise that game still holds up many games have tried to copy it and failed badly



old skool

That's good for you, enjoy.

I'm in the same boat as you, just played it this August. It was pretty amazing. I thought Maridia was the end of the game pretty much and thought there weren't really any more items. Then I found Space Jump from Metroid II. That was pretty amazing.

id agree but the controls annoy me after an hour( although i only have wii motion plus remotes i hear its better without the motion plus, trying to scan stuff is really annoying, nintendo where was the patch?), id say pick up 1 and 2 for the gamecube, much better and you would pick them up much cheaper
