After her last mission (from Metroid 2), Samus Aran finds a Metroid offspring just as she was escaping from Planet SR388. Samus Aran reports the metroid larva to the Ceres space station. But as they were studying it, a fearsome dragon, Ridley, exterminates everything except the larva. This is where Samus finds out about the ressurection of Planet Zebeth.

Ultimate Bounty Hunter
8 July 2007 | by (az) – See all my reviews

One of the greatest games of all time, especially of the sci-fi genre. Absolutely everything about this game was well done from the amazing graphics, to the tight controls, to the even more haunting music in the background. From the start to the finish, the game never lets up as far as atmosphere and action. Creature sounds are top-notch and will actually make you jump in some places. Metroid has always been fun because at the start you are real weak and then by the end of the game, you feel like you could take on any kind of bounty hunter prey in the universe. This game is still in my library and i still play from time to time. Absolutely recommended.
