Super Metroid is my favorite game of all time. Atmospheric as can be, Super Metroid breathed life into the planet Zebes through the use of it's complex ecosystem which is filled with a wide variety of enemies to fight. Combining the best elements from the two previous Metroid games, Super Metroid proved to be a more memorable experience than both of it's predecessors. Twenty four megabits were used to create this masterpiece, making it the largest game of it's time, and it's great from beginning to end. Several new features were added to polish the Metroid formula, such as the new map system, which makes navigation much less stressful. By improving on the original and it's fantastic sequel, Super Metroid remains my favorite game ever.

Super Metroid is as much a work of art to me as it is a videogame. To me it's the holy grail of the entire Snes library & believe me I've played over 200 Snes games yes all the elites to. To me it's in a class all it's own. Perfect is a relative term but this game is VERY close. Yes, I shamefully admit i've never beaten it in under 3 hours to get the good ending. I'm close, my record is 3 hours, 56 min. & 2 seconds. I won't stop till I do it. The atmosphere is spectacular. It's as much about the destination as it is the journey. I can't doubt it must be the direct inspiration to my #1 favorite game Castlevania: SOTN Konami did outstanding to turn space into a nightmare. Super Metroid is the very definition of Classic.

An amazing adventure through, even today, a visually stunning environment.

Super Metroid shows off the creepy side of Nintendo. With gross monsters, eerie chambers, and horrifying bosses, Super Metroid is super scary, in a wonderful way.

Super Metroid is brilliantly designed and is a lot of fun. Even though I have only played this game for the first time recently, I can safely say that it is one of the best games of all time. The great atmosphere and flawless gameplay makes this game one to be remembered.

Oh jeez, this is probably gonna get me into some serious trouble here....Oh well! Anyways, Super Metroid is, yet again, a title I never played as a child. Hell, I never even knew the game "existed". When I first saw Samus Aran in Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo64? I had no idea who she was, and yeah...I thought she was a man in a suit, like many did for the first time. How could you not? The suit doesn't even look feminine "at all", so how would you know if you weren't told or shown? Anyways, Super Metroid's a good game, but I never heard of it as a kid, and so I have no real connection to it at all. The fact it's not exactly my kind of game doesn't help it either. A 6/10 is all I can really give this one...Sorry, guys.

This was great, but didn't sell. Metroid logic.

Best game on the SNES right here. The original and return of samus were good, but damn, the developers knew what they were doing with this game. The opening sets up the game perfectly, leading to a maze of a map with tons of collectibles. Also, that ending.
