This game absolutely set the bar for Metroid as a whole. It's a game that really lets you explore and rewards you for going wild on exploration. My only complaint is that some jumps and moves require precision timing, but that's a skill issue. I got much better with it over time. Nevertheless, I can see why when it comes to the SNES, Super Metroid is one of the greatest standouts of that generation. Totally deserved.
