Metroid NES

Metroid on the NES was one of the first games to give off real challenge like the Legend of Zelda. There was nothing wrong with this game. There are 3 stages to the game: Brinstar, Norfair and Tourian. There are 3 bosses in the game: Kraid, Ridley and Mother Brain. There are 5 possible endings to Metroid, all featuring Samus in various stages of un-dress: The slowest time featured an ending were S... read more

My all time favorite game. A friend had a working NES system a few years back, and I raved about this game. I got it off Amazon and played it with them. I was not disappointed, and quickly fell back into the patterns, challenges, and fun times I had with this game as a child. I spent many nights playing this growing up, and I think that it is a skill to master a game as difficult as this one. It t... read more

Description: Metroid provided one of the first highly nonlinear game experiences on a home console. The basic gameplay is a mix of action adventure and platform shooter. The player begins with a very limited amount of power-ups, and must always use their ingenuity to achieve the next "locked" or unreachable area. Because the game world is presented in one multi-screened "level," there are some areas that can be reached before they were meant to be by creative and highly skilled players.

“My all time favorite game. A friend had a working NES system a few years back, and I raved about this game. I got it off Amazon and played it with them. I was not disappointed, and quickly fell back into the patterns, challenges, and fun times I had with this game as a child. I spent many nights playing this growing up, and I think that it is a skill to master a game as difficult as this one. It took me a long time to beat this game, and using the codes do not justify the work and satisfaction that comes along with the start to finish of Metroid. This game is awesome. Pick up an old copy and see. The new versions are pretty cool too, but none of them compare to this gem” read more

"El laberinto enredoso, enorme e indistinguible que es el mapa vende la idea de profundidades tenebrosas y peligrosas espaciales excelentemente, pero esta atmósfera la mayoría del tiempo se ve minimizada por el enorme tedio que genera la navegación. Zelda trabajó la exploración y el descubrimiento mucho mejor."

"When Metroid was released it attracted a lot of attention due to its non-linear gameplay (similar to that of The Legend of Zelda), offering a variety of areas to explore and revisit, and setting what would become one of the most succesful sagas for Nintendo."
