Dread Mode in Metroid Dread is like playing the game for the first time again. It's really hard and instead of just blasting through it I need to always be catious.

I recently replayed the game for the first time since November 2021. I had many of the same issues with it as on my very first playthrough, so I don't think it's a great Metroid game. It works better when you know your way around and the enemies' attack patterns, but otherwise it's a frustrating experience.

I played on Beginner mode to test it out, but the damage values hardly differ from Normal mode, so it couldn't mitigate the fundamental problem of the game: Having more energy to work with doesn't matter when it's all about learning the patterns of bosses.

The free DLC made the game worse overall. I have no interest in playing Dread mode and barely more to try out the boss rush modes. Before the DLC, I was done with everything in the game, but now that feeling of satisfaction has been wiped.

Fingers crossed that the Metroid Prime remaster outsells Dread.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV will outsell Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I was wrong.
