Metroid Samus Returns 

 

I have played a variety of Metroid video games over the years. We have not reviewed many of them here at Family Friendly Gaming. I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming purchased a copy of Metroid Samus Returns on the Nintendo 3DS after the failures of the PR and Marketing firm for this particular product.

We go back to the planet of SR388 to kill off forty Metroids. They were discovered underground. The issues families can have with Metroid Samus Returns is violence, blood, lack of attire, enticement to lust, idols, and more. Parts of Metroid Samus Returns can be difficult due to the controls. Which felt too loose to me. Especially the targeting. There is nothing more frustrating that constantly missing an enemy. Then missing the Melee Counter to stun them.

I died early and often in Metroid Samus Returns. I would go on runs where I did good and stayed alive for a bit. Metroid Samus Returns lets you continue if you die so generally not a lot of progress is lost. I still had to redo things since saves are too few and too far between for my tastes. Why can’t we just save everywhere? The technology for doing that has existed for decades Nintendo.

If you take too much damage you can die, and go back to your last save. There is another option. You can grind for health. Keep killing the enemies and collecting health from them. Eventually you will get back to full health. The 2D side scrolling levels in Metroid Samus Returns are augmented by the 3D cut scenes.

Metroid Samus Returns generally looks nice, and sounds good. The violence is one of the main issues in Metroid Samus Returns. There are some areas that are really populated with enemies. Metroids take awhile to kill off in Metroid Samus Returns. They also change what can hurt them based on what attacks you have unlocked. I value Metroid Samus Returns at fifteen dollars brand new. That is my personal price opinion on this product.
