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.


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


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


  • 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.


  • 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.


  • Nothing.
