Forums - Nintendo Discussion - NintendoLife Ranks the Metroid Games

I'm surprised by how low Fusion is and I'm happy to see Seamus Returns so high, as I had a lot of fun with it...
I see a lot of outrage at Other M being as high as it is but not enough outrage at Hunters being so high...



Have a nice day...

"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."

They gave it an 8/10...

That's hilarious.

As for the list, I think Metroid: Other M should be a spot or two lower, and I think that Echoes and Corruption should switch places. Besides that it's great.



I am currently sigless.

They changed their mind.

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.

Agreed, but I never got to play Prime Pinball.

Different writers with different opinions, really. But it's still funny. Makes it seem like they have really high standards and 8/10 is an abomination, lol

I haven't played every metroid yet, but I legitimately had a better time with Metroid 2 than Other M, even by today's standards.

Metroid 2 is criminally underrated. It is by no means a great game by today's standards, but it is at least playable, which can't be said for the first game (or Prime Hunters, for that matter). It also doesn't damage the franchise and its reputation like Other M and Federation Force.



 NES Metroid is the best selling 2D Metroid.  They put it on this list below Other M. 

Fail!

Based purely on how much I enjoyed them...
1. Metroid 2
2. Metroid
3. Super Metroid
4-whatever. The rest.


I already like your list far better.

Metroid nes and Samus returns are way better than pinball hunters and fusion. So no. At least the recognize echoes as being one of the very best.

Other M's too high, Fusion's too low.

Yeah.

Other M is the second last.

Federation force is the last.

1. Prime

2. Metroid 2

3. Super Metroid.

4. Prime 2

5. Prime 3

6. Metroid

7. Metroid Hunters

8. Metroid Pinball

9-13 Sakamoto Shitshow and Federation Force
