North American box art

Metroid: Zero Mission is an action/adventure platform run and gun. It is a remake of the original NES game based on the Super Metroid engine and with the addition of some extra sections. I would suggest this version of the game rather than the original NES game to any fan of the Metroidvania genre who hasn't yet played the original.

Status

Beat the game in 2:48:63 with 67% completion on normal difficulty.

Review

  • Overall: 8/10
  • Best Version: Game Boy Advance

Good

  • The game manages to take away a lot of the pointless wandering from the original game while still keeping most the allure.
  • The new area adds extra game play, and is quite nice for those of us who have already beaten the original.
  • The more-fleshed out story, full-screen graphics, larger sprites, updated music, background art, etc. really make the game more attractive.
  • After you beat the game, you unlock the original 8-bit game as well!
  • You can actually save your game, rather than deal with an obnoxious password system.

Bad

  • Some of the difficulties of the original game remain, so, if you don't know where to look to find the Varia or a couple of the energy tanks, you may still skip them and find the game too difficult.
  • While the game also contains the original 8-bit Metroid game, the Game Boy Advance resolution isn't large enough to display the game full screen, so it is obnoxiously squished.
  • Interestingly, when you're given hints on where to go next, the game is surprisingly short, even with the added content.
  • I think the box art is kind of lame.

Ugly

  • Nothing.
