Metroid: Zero Mission (GBA, 2004)
guessed by S.Peelman
The Game Boy Advance made a living off its enhanced remakes and ports, from Super Mario Advance to Final Fantasy VI Advance. Its best, though, is Metroid: Zero Mission, a retelling of the events of the first Metroid game. As in the original, Zero Mission takes place on Zebes, where Samus has tracked the Space Pirates, scourge of the galaxy and abductors of Metroids, highly dangerous parasitic life forms. Because of its familiar storyline and geography, Zero Mission is a treat for fans familiar with the Metroid mythology who wish to relive one of the most important games on the NES; it’s similarly a perfect starting point for those new to the franchise. Zero Mission marks the first of three Metroid games on my list.
