Super Metroid is an action adventure platformer released by Nintendo for the SNES in 1994. It is the third game in the Metroid series and takes place right after the events of Metroid II: Return of Samus.
I own this game and have beaten it, though I don't remember my time or completion amount.
- Overall: 9/10
- Best Version: SNES
The original Japanese box art. Once again, Nintendo continues an unusual tradition of making the Japanese Metroid box art more adult than the USA. Samus appears to be running for her life away from the game's bosses. I prefer this art.
The North American box art keeps the running Samus, but Ridley looks more like a comic book character than a sinister villain, and Kraid is barely noticeable. This art was used in European regions as well.
