Forums - Nintendo Discussion - NintendoLife Ranks the Metroid Games

As seen in this article here that just came out.

Don't be surprised when you see what game was in last place.



Around the Network

I would flip Echoes and Corruption, but all in all a good list



Nothing to see here, move along

"Most Metroid fans would describe Federation Force as more of an abomination than a video game, and they're not far off the mark there."
http://www.nintendolife.com/reviews/3ds/metroid_prime_federation_force

They gave it an 8/10...



I can accept most of this but Other M is way to high even as poorly as the original Metroid has aged I can't accept it or Prime Pinball being below Other M.



I can't accept anything being below Other M.



Around the Network

I don't think Other M is a bad game. Just not a very good Metroid game. I would put the original above it though.

They changed their mind.

Agreed, but I never got to play Prime Pinball.



I feel people are overrating Super Metroid and Metroid Prime to a point where it is harmful. In the same way, Ocarina of Time was to the Zelda series. Seeing Metroid 1 and 2 so low makes me question this list as well.

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

Them unskippable cutscenes... I say it's actually an alrgiht Metroid game, close to mediocre partly because it loves to rehash stuff from previous games a bit too much, but the narrative is what ultimately kills it, and the fact that you can't skip it is, well, atrocious. 



It's about time we get a Metroid Prime Trilogy on the Switch, isn't it?

 

And Other M should be lower still, it's basically the Last Jedi of Metroid. Ew!
