How do they compare to SNES and GC versions?
I enjoyed playing Fusion. I didn't get far but this summer I plan to play it more and finish it. I enjoyed it. I never played the other versions
They're very good, although one of them is a remake of the first Metroid to Nes (still a very good game though).
They are more like the Snes versions and less like the Metroid Prime series which I hated.
I know I'll catch flack for it but to me...no.
Fusion was everything Metroid as it's known to be not being followed. Massively linear, crap story with cut scenes interrupting play, poorly (very) balanced damage ratios vs the other titles, and just the general feel wasn't there either. Honestly this one I find the most disappointing Metroid game ever right along with Prime 2.
The other one is just preference as I didn't feel engaged by it enough with the fluffy new graphics or the added area to care as it still was the same NES game I've torn up enough times back in the 80s to bother trying again...it's not bad, just nothing special unless it's your first trip or you're a diehard Metroid fanatic and could replay it a 100x over then it's aces.
Heh I think I will stick to Castlevania.
Fusion and Zero Mission are both very much similar to Super Metroid. However, they're nothing like Prime.
It's basically a matter of 2D vs. 3D Metroid.
I don't get why some people like Zero Mission but not Fusion, by all means they're the same game with different locations.
Side note: Anyone remember this 2D "Metroid Dread" game that was supposed to come out on the DS?
I actually just replayed both of them again last week. I really enjoy both of them and I do prefer the 2D style much more than the Prime stuff. I wish Nintendo would release Metroid Dread so I could get some 2D DS action.
I've played both and didn't like fusion tha much as i thought it was too linear. But i did enjoy playing zero mission though.
Wow, I guess people do remember Dread. And I agree with you, 2D Metroid games rock! Just like how 2D Castevania games>their 3D counterparts.
fusion is really good
Yes, Fusion is a great game. I really enjoyed that one.
well fusion kind of goes against what metroid stands for with the constant hand holding and dialog throughout the levels, metroid zero mission was a bite sized super metroid meaning it was alot shorter, the bosses were VERY easy, less weapons. It was still good but don't expect anything up to par with super metroid. I recommend both games if your a 2D metroid fan. So ya play em.
Metroid Dread was the rumored next 2D-Metroid game for DS. It even was hinted in MP3:C, which was later denied. Retro said it was pure coincidence.
Right now it's currently not in development.
Edit: See here.
Zero Mission is very, VERY fun. But this is coming from someone who didn't play the original, so... yeah. Fusion is pretty good, too, but I don't like it quite as much. Mostly just aesthetic reasons.
i just replayed metroid zero mission and beat it in.. tadaaah, 2:01hrs! one minute past the best ending : (
but its sooo fun and addicting.
Both are great, Fusion in story, Zero Mission in, well.... overall epicness (daaaaah daah dahdah dah daaaaah daaaaaaaaaaah dahdahdah daaaaaaaaaaah - i know i'm insane, leave me alone =]). both are my favourite GBA sidescrollers.
edit: btw guys what are you time records for both? My fusion record is 1:31 and Zero Mission record is somewhere near 1:40
I loved both games.
I really hoped Return of Samus would get remade too seeing the Zero was such a good remake.
Both version are great.
