Product Description

Product Description

In Metroid Fusion, Samus Aran returns in a nonstop, action-packed side-scrolling game in which her toughest enemy turns out to be herself. While on her way to explore a strange alien planet, her spaceship is attacked by a mysterious life form. A parasitic creature attacks Samus and begins to gnaw at her body.


Metroid Fusion is a side-scrolling action game that's more in line with the series' NES origin than its GameCube contemporary, the first-person action game Metroid Prime. In this one, players take the bounty hunter Samus on an extermination mission through a research facility to kill X parasites--nasty creatures that absorb and assimilate the powers of their host. After she survived an X attack through the use of a vaccine made with X parasite DNA, she can now absorb the parasites to regain health and obtain special powers, like the morph ball, space jump, and wave beam. The problem is that the parasites are quickly making their way through the research lab's many dangerous projects and subsuming their abilities.

As a special bonus to GameCube owners, Metroid Prime and Metroid Fusion can each unlock special features in the other game via the Nintendo GameCube Game Boy Advance cable. For example, by completing Metroid Fusion, you can unlock the original NES version of Metroid in Metroid Prime. By completing Metroid Prime, you can unlock Samus's fusion suit for use in Metroid Prime.

The famed 'Metroid' series really hit its stride with the release of "Super Metroid" for the Super NES platform. It did away with the monotony of "Metroid II" and enhanced the gameplay and environment of the original "Metroid". The puzzles and challenges presented by this version captivated all kinds of gamers. It re-hashed the original story and gave it some extra kick. New weapons and abilities were introduced, as were more complex storylines. Having never played any of the 'Metroid' games before this one, it was quite a spectacular introduction.

Now, fast foward a few years. Knowing that the new GameBoy Advance System is making quite a profit out of porting old Super NES games for handheld, I was interested to see if Nintendo was going to put "Super Metroid" on the GBA. Well, they did, sort of. The game that ended up being developed for GBA was called "Metroid Fusion" and it resembles "Super Metroid" in many ways. However, there are several distinctions. For starters, this takes place AFTER "Super Metroid" and adds a new wrinkle to story by creating a new nemesis called 'parasite X' which was able to procreate after our hero, Samus, wiped out all of the Metroids on SR 388. This parasite is a menace to the entire universe and all traces of it on SR 388 and the orbital research lab must be destroyed. "... Fusion" takes place entirely aboard the orbital research lab and employs most of the same gameplay that "Super Metroid" did. It's still a side-scroller and it presents many of the same obstacles of its predecessor. There are numerous different types of doors that are sealed and unable to be accessed unless certain criteria are met.

The problem with so many games for the Game Boy Advance is that they are repackaged SNES games. Metroid Fusion is a completely new sequel to Super Metroid. The graphics for this handheld game are simply amazing. Very few games look THIS good. You can even see Samus's new organic suit pulsate when she stands still if you look really closely. Not only that but it looks good while sounding equally good. The music is rich and there are no lack of sound effects. The story is the best by far. While you hunt the X virus cores your old X-infected suit (at full power) hunts you and your ship's compter is busily betraying you to your own government to help them keep a dirty secret about the space station. Many have complained that the computer giving out missions makes the game too linear and easy. Don't believe them! While this game is more focused, there is still plenty of exploration between mission rooms other than the objectives. Also to note, yes you can "beat" the game within 5 hours the first time through, but to get the best ending requires a complete mastery of the game which will take many many trips through and require you to explore every corner of the space station. And this station is so beautiful, mysterious, and interesting that it begs to be explored. Overall, this is one of the best games for the Game Boy Advance.

This is my fourth GBA game (first Metroid game), and it's the best one in my collection.
The graphics are okay. The background, cutscenes are in great detail. Samus herself is one of the worse ones, but you can't expect too much in a small screen like that.
The gameplay is great compared with my other games, but you have to collect all your powerups BEFORE your last mission, or your CO will lock all the sectors up. It's also a bit short than what I had expected, but the variety of arsenals and suits you can get makes up for it.
The controls get annoying at times (esp. space jumping), and for some of the boss battles and puzzles you'll have to need pixel-perfect movements to win or achieve.
The sound effects are great, but the music is not. You would usually like to turn the volume to zero, as it's dodgy.
As the powerups are just too well-hidden, and that there are five endings, there is high replay value. I only got a 51% completion for the first time, and it's not with a help of a walkthrough did I get 100%.
Graphics 16/20
Gameplay 36/40
Control 10/15
Sound 7/10
Replay Value 13/15
Total 82/100

Every once in a while, a game comes along, which redefines very essence of gaming and sets a standard for all other games to follow. It could be graphic, game play, music, innovation, originality, and experience. When I play a game, the most important factor I see and cherish ultimately comes down to experience. I can pick only three games; Ico, the masterpiece which shouldn¡¯t be missed by anyone, and Metal Gear Solid, another masterpiece where everything was masterfully controlled. Lastly, I pick Super Metroid for SNES, which literally made me cry for 3 hours, and almost, almost made me to determine to never play video game again back in college years. So you see how much I¡¯ve been anticipating for true sequel of Metroid. Now the question is does this fourth ¡®true¡¯ sequel of Metroid lives up to its legacy? Now just finishing Metroid Fusion for the first time (you will get goosebump all over when you hear that classic Metroid title music, SERIOUSLY). I can¡¯t help but being immersed in this world of, you tell me, like world of exceedingly wonderful mood-
This very sequel, Metroid Fusion, will mesmerize you with the time-tested foundation of previous Metroid games with enhancement on every aspect. Graphic looks so vibrant and vivid that you will literally go WOW, seriously. Music wise, I would say they sort of took out that out-in-the-space atmosphere more and inserted more of movie score like, making it feel like more of movie. You know, that¡¯s true because previous Metroid games had almost one objective, like destroy the Space Pirate, or exterminate Metroid, and that was it.
