Product Description

Product Description

The second Metroid game, developed from the ground-up for Nintendo's black & white handheld, takes place some time after the NES original. Samus flies to the home planet of the Metroids, SR-388, an unstable place racked by earthquakes and torrents of lava. Many powerful breeds of Metroid thrive here and in the cavers below the surface. Samus roots them all out, eventually destroying the Metroid Queen. A baby Metroid hatches immediately after the battle and imprints upon Samus. Thinking Samus is her mother, it helps her escape. Samus then turns the hatchling over to the Galactic Federation, thinking that researching it might prove fruitful. Gameplay itself is classic sidescrolling, shooting, and puzzle solving, with plenty of alien encounters.

From the Manufacturer

A sinister planet threatens the galaxy! Space Hunter Samus Aran returns to battle a planet crawling with evil creatures bent on universal domination in this bigger than ever sequel to the NES classic Metroid. Guide Samus through cavernous corridors, ancient ruins, and alien traps. On the mysterious planet of the Metroids, you’ll find artifacts of a lost civilization that grant mysterious powers. Cut through creatures in a buzz saw blur. Roll through hidden tunnels and climb sheer walls.

A battery backup allows you to save your progress as you fight to the heart of the planet and search for the merciless Metroid leaders. If you are a cunning explorer, you’ll earn the best of several super endings.

Having defeated Mother Brain and her gang of pirates, Samus Aran is called upon to journey to the planet SR388, the home of the Metroid (a jelly fish like life form). This life form has the capability to absorb the energy of any life forme it catches.Since contact was lost with 2 research teams, her mission is to destroy all metroids on the planet. This, however, proves to be easier said then done, due to the presence, not only of other life formes, and machanical defences, but also of slime capable of draining her energy. As a result of these, I found this game very enjoyable, and chalenging. The addition of features such as "the spider ball", "the space jump boots", as well as the "spazer", and "plasma" beams, added to the excitement of this game. The reader will also find all but one feature from the original "Metroid" available.

I bought Metroid II the day it came out back in 1991, and since that day it has been my favorite Gameboy game, and one of my favorite games on any system. The graphics were far superior to its NES predecessor, which made me love this game from the start. The game play is extremely easy to pick up, and very responsive to what you want it to do. AND, the levels are vast and fun to explore for a few hours. Let's face it; it doesn't get much better than playing as Samus and shooting up the Metroid.
This game picks up where the original Metroid left off. You are Samus Aran, and you work for the Galactic Federation to fight evil. Lately the evil has been a species called the Metroid. In the first game, Samus defeated the Metroid on another planet including the Mother Brain. In this game Samus travels to the Metroid's home planet to take em all out. This game really stands out compared any other black and white Gameboy game, and it even rivals new Gameboy Color and Advance stuff. The Metroid series is one of the best Nintendo has to offer, and I recommend anyone buy a game that boasts Samus Aran as a character.

This a pretty good game, definitely worth the price. It's pretty complicated and you can get lost in the giant world but once you know your way around it turns into a lot of fun. Your goal is to basically wipe out the Metroids while upgrading your weapons to finally take out the mother of them all. Hope this was helpful

First off, This is an extremely great game for those who liked Metroid and wanted to continue the story of the game. The game is a really great game and is what you have come to expect from the Metroid series, a really fun game. The concept of the game revolves around the idea that, Samus, goes to the a planet to investigate some kind of investation. This turns out to be Metroids a class of Aliens she encountered in the original game and you must go through and wipe them out from the planet before they have the ability to spread. The graphics of the game are relatively good for the time the game premiered coming out in the early 90's but the game is still a fun game despite the matter of graphics. Playability is pretty simple as it is a simple control scheme that anyone can quickly get used to and the entertainment factor keeps you playing for a while when you are in the car on a road trip. As far as replay value it is pretty cut and dry. The game progresses through and begs you to beat it, so eventually you probably will. Anyway, I enjoyed this game a great deal [or I wouldn't have given it five stars] and I recommend that you try to pick it up so you could have a little slice of Metroid joy.

I really enjoy this game from the beginning to end.. well when I started playing it.. it sure was hard.. but after I finish the game a few times I was able to set a record.. My record in finishing this game was 4 hours and some.. but I really like it.. I still love.. and own it. I like the several types of guns, and the armor she gets.. as you play you are able to get extra life.. but some of them are really hided. if you want some truly hours of fun.. get this game.. actually it had higher price from now when I got it.

I seriously believe Metroid II: Return of Samus is an underrated classic. We all know about the weak abilities of the Game Boy and the horribly dated black and white graphics, but when you consider everything *else* about the game succeeds, who cares about graphics at all?

Yes, this game succeeds in numerous aspects. Let's take a look at them-

The sound. Alright, sometimes the music you hear is nothing more than scrambling awkward bleeps and whatnot, but you know what? Those bleeps *work*. Metroid is a space shooter adventure game. Those sounds are *entirely* appropriate in this particular case! You think about those kind of sounds when you visualize aliens, spaceships and distant planets.

Oh, and while some sounds in the game are not very organized, other sounds actually form somewhat of a quality melody.

The gameplay. Arguably an improvement over the first Metroid because here you're introduced to items such as the boost ball, the spazer beam, the plasma beam, AND the spider ball in addition to all the regular items from the previous game. At least here you don't have to search for the long beam, haha. That always feels WEIRD to me when I play the original! Searching for a long beam is one of those things game developers realized wasn't necessary anymore (thank goodness!) so they stopped putting them in Metroid games.

Anyway yes- the wave beam, ice beam, space jump, screw attack, bombs... it's all here folks! I honestly can't believe such an old game was able to include all these items. Amazing!

The exploration aspect of a Metroid game is always a very important thing. Maybe even the MOST important thing. Without the ability to explore a huge planet, there's not much left in the way of adventurousness.
