I do not know if it is the Metroid that we all expected, but if that was needed, and I recommend it in its entirety, finally metroid.
No se si sea el Metroid que todos esperabamos, pero si que hacia falta,y lo recomiendo en su totalidad, por fin metroid.

We need more Metroid
After such a long drought for Metroid, Samus finally returns, and boy what a great way to make a comeback. A re-imagining of the old Metroid II game for Gameboy (you can find that on the Nintendo 3DS eShop) it looks fantastic and controls beautifully. The 3D is well worth turning up too, especially when you unlock the image gallery.
Samus moves exactly how you would expect her to and with the new melee counter and 360 aiming, she is more of a badass than ever before. My first playthrough took more than 10 hours, but you will easily spend more hours on this game playing and replaying, beating the time or different difficulties.
For anyone butthurt about AM2R, I think even the creators of AM2R would like this remake/reimagining.
It's a truly wonderful game and well worth trying, whether you are a fan of Metroid or a fan of action platformers, this game is just fun.
Now let's hope we get more Metroid games like this.
