Taking its cue from the SNES game Super Metroid, this all-new title starts with Samus infected by the evil X parasites and battling to rid a space station of their menace. Part platform game, part shoot-'em-up and part RPG, the Metroid games are some of the most revered in all gaming history.
With a gameplay not unlike that of the newer Castlevania games (although Metroid did it all first), Metroid Fusion forces you to explore the huge space station as you slowly regain your various bounty hunting powers. The game includes all the old Metroid power-ups, including the morph ball and screw attack and plenty of other new gadgets. There's also the chance to practise your wall bounce, which must rank as one of the most difficult yet satisfying moves to pull off ever in a video game. Another nice new twist is that all the enemies are infected by X parasites, so when you shoot them the parasites just fly off and infect another creature unless you catch them first.
As good as the game is, though, it's not as perfectly designed as its forebear--there's far too much dull story line and the game is (perhaps by necessity on a portable console) more linear than before. But even these slight foibles might be seen as positives by some, making this a game no-one will want to miss. --David Jenkins
Technically, the game runs with incredable speed, and it is very fluent in changing scenes and music.
A lot of people were worried about the control methods for this game, but i can assure you that the button combinations used within this games are spot on, and very easy to get the hang of.
This game is a definate must for all Metriod fans, and for GBA owners who like their platformers nice, fast, and with a good story behind them!
All in all it was a great game and the only flaw was at the begining i thought it would last me months.
Without ruining the storyline, you encounter the SA-X (a clone of yourself) with your original devestating power before you lose it at the beggining of the game.The SA-X tries to destroy you as you flee helplessly and the music builds tension.
The graphics and scenery are ecxellent and you won't want to stop playing.
The worst bits are the tough bosses and puzzles where You'll probably get stuck for ages.
This game is completely amazing.I highly recommend it!
