Metroid: Samus Returns (2017) Jonny’s game review

It’s no secret Jonny’s the most hardcore Metroid fan thee ever was, but we managed to roll his tongue back into his mouth long enough to give a review of Metroid: Samus Returns. 

Similar to Metroid II, but with new controls, visuals, gameplay, and features new to 2D Metroid games, Metroid: Samus Returns is a side-scrolling action-adventure game played on a two-dimensional plane with three-dimensional graphics. Players take control of series protagonist Samus Aran, a bounty hunter who explores labyrinthine environments, kills hostile aliens, and collects power-ups to gain access to new areas. This installment introduces new elements such as Samus’ ability to perform melee counterattacks to deal critical damage on foes, freely firing at any angle, and new powers called Aeion abilities that rely on an energy gauge for their usage.
