Very fun modern 2d side scroller. Awesome graphics, interesting gameplay. I enjoyed the whole thing.

Peak Metroid.
Este juego tiene todo lo que me gustó de Fusion, controles mejorados, una atmósfera increíble y una historia simple, efectiva y bien contada que para el final uno se siente lleno de emoción.
Debo decir que los EMMIs no podrán igualar la sensación que tuvo SA-X en mi, pero me agrada que las persecuciones hayan sido algo que llegó para quedarse en la saga.
Fuera de eso, Samus nunca se había controlado de manera tan fluida como en este juego, verdaderamente el simple hecho de correr por el mapa es una experiencia exquisita.
La historia esta con madre, cuando Samus habla por primera vez es completamente épico, no necesita decir mas que una oración para apretar el control y sonreír de emoción y felicidad.
Después de jugar toda la saga 2-D creo que la franquicia ha envejecido como el vino, pues cada entrega supera a la anterior en todo. Un aplauso al mejor juego de la Switch.

I love the sense of progression you get with the abilities you gain through the playthrough, and exploring is quite enjoyable. It's short and sweet. Burenia is peak aesthetic.
I do want to stress that I like this game, however unfortunately this game is a nuisance to play, my playthrough was about as annoying as it was fun. The bosses suck, the best thing about this game is the exploration and the bosses are more like annoying roadblocks that aren't very fun to fight. The game is more obnoxious than it is difficult. This could be growing pains as it was only my first playthrough, but the more I played the more I realized the game was both a pain and the ass as well as an enjoyable experience. The only reason I didn't beat the game in one sitting was because I got so drained near the end. The devs decided to be assholes and put a boss fight where in the only place I could go, and I couldn't leave the area to do some carefree exploring so I was stuck at the same boss fight. Yeah its annoying but its also kinda funny to mention too.
This game will be replayed sometime soon to see how my current stance ages. At the same time though, it has me interested in the other Metroid games as this is my formal introduction to the series.

first couple emmi sections promptly reminded me i am a massive pussy
