The original Metroid for the Nintendo Entertainment System was groundbreaking, but obviously flawed. Nintendo R&D1 had succeeded in creating a moody exploration-based platformer, and when it came time to develop the imminent sequel, their task was to round out the rough edges and tap into the NES game's concept's potential. Though not the series' pinnacle - that title would be duly assigned to Sup... read more

Metroid II: Return of Samus is a sequel to Metroid NES, though chronologically it takes place after Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and before Super Metroid. Some time has passed since Samus Aran put a stop to the Space Pirates on Zebes and their plans to use the newly-discovered Metroids for evil purposes.

" Picture of My profile Last Played: 08/12/10 ~ 08/13/10 Purchased: 08/20/08 (Second copy; first stolen) Playthrough: ??? (Countless times) As pandering as it sounds Metroid II: Return of Samus is a game I feel sorry for and feel very passionate about. Some may be surprised to know this was my first Metroid experience (followed by Super and then the original) so there is an obvious connection between me and the game that goes back many years. Now I know Return of Samus can't really hold its own"

"No: 017 / Added: 08.20.08 / Status: Played When it comes to receiving to accolades and affection from fans, Metroid II almost always falls behind the rest of the pack. This isn't born out of any significant flaw as it's an extremely well-crafted handheld title, but more out of stiff competition. That said, while its story obviously flows into that of Super Metroid, Metroid II feels more like a precursor to Metroid Fusion than anything else. Last Played: 08.12.10 ~ 08.13.10 / Overall: 8 out of 10"

“The original Metroid for the Nintendo Entertainment System was groundbreaking, but obviously flawed. Nintendo R&D1 had succeeded in creating a moody exploration-based platformer, and when it came time to develop the imminent sequel, their task was to round out the rough edges and tap into the NES game's concept's potential. Though not the series' pinnacle - that title would be duly assigned to Super Metroid - Metroid II: Return of Samus is a classic in its own right. Even to one not enamored with what it has to offer, there can be no doubt that it serves as the necessary transitionary game between the unrefined 1987 debut and the 1994 masterpiece.

After the events of the first game, wherein Samus, on behalf of the Galactic Federation, defeated the Space Pirates and stopped their ” read more

"Platform: Game Boy Release date: 1991 Developer: Nintendo R&D1 Metroid was an immensely influential game, but easily the series' hardest to play. Metroid II adds new features - like the update to Samus's costume and some new abilities - but more importantly, it just takes the formula and makes it fun. The 39 Metroid hit list is a great idea leaving one satisfied whenever said total gets reduced, and the black-and-white graphics provide a one of a kind atmosphere as far as the series goes. Hig"

"This is an amazing game that should so be remade! This is where the spider ball technique originates from I think they called it the magnet ball dont quote me on that. Samus gained such great new powers. This game was black and white but was the first metroid game to show the gradual development stages of metroid's from baby to adult for the first time. This is also where the baby metroid comes from thats later in other m and super metroid!"

"Posted on October 27th, 2010: I enjoyed this one quite a bit more than the NES original. The fact that you don't have to bring your health bar up from 30 every time you play helps make it easier to pick up and play after turning it off. I also found the Metroid count to be an interesting gameplay dynamic which made the whole experience more unified and fun. Altogether I think Team Metroid improved on the formula from the first, but most importantly they made this installment a bit more fun."

Metroid II: Return of Samus

“Metroid II: Return of Samus is a sequel to Metroid NES, though chronologically it takes place after Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and before Super Metroid. Some time has passed since Samus Aran put a stop to the Space Pirates on Zebes and their plans to use the newly-discovered Metroids for evil purposes. To ensure this will not happen again, the Galactic Federation sends a research ship to the Metroid home world, SR388, to annihilate the species. When contact with the ship is lost, a rescue team and combat squad are sent, one after the other, to investigate, though none come back alive. Realizing the threat that the Metroids pose, the Galactic Federation sends Samus Aran on a mission to land on SR388 and destroy all Metroid organisms. With her experience on Zebes, the Galactic Federation is” read more

"Alright most people will say this is the worst Metroid game out there. But the least outstanding game in an amazing franchise is hardly an insult. I enjoyed this, the save feature was a welcomed addition."
