A classic for the Metroid series.

Samus returns for another action-packed game involving those utterly freaky creatures called Metroids.

This time, she has to destroy THEM ALL. This is no easy task. You take control of Samus and have to guide her through planet SR388's underground maze of caverns and treacherous terrain.

There are new items and weapons at Samus' disposal, such as the Space Jump and new kinds of beam weapons.

The graphics excel the GameBoy's original potential, and the music could be great if the GameBoy's sound system was any better. The gameplay is astoundingly easy to get used to. The plot and storyline twist and turn in the end, which sets the scene for Metroid III (Super Metroid).

All in all, a must have for action and Metroid gamers alike. You won't be disappointed with this better-then-ever Metroid game that surpasses the original by far.
