"This is a 3 star game that I love and directly led to an untold number of 5 star games, so it gets a bump.

The mid rating is mostly based on how brutally unforgiving and obtuse this game is in the original state. Absolutely do yourself a favor and play with save states, not to save scum, but simply because the game will restart you with only 30 energy after you use a password, and there literally are no save points. You can fall into lava between two columns and unless you can infinite bomb jump, you might be stuck until you slowly die.

Still this is a good game, if you take the time to really get to know it. You can also just skip this and play zero mission, which is a much better version with its own challenges for completionists (shinespark puzzles anyone?)."

"This game just isn't for me. I didn't grow up with it, so there's no nostalgia. Like most NES games, it is difficult (I wasn't expecting to have to go left at the start of the game to be able to turn into the spinning ball).
But ultimately, I gave it 3 stars due to its importance in gaming history."

"I considered 4 stars since Super Metroid is the better game, but since this created the Metroid world it deserves the full 5 stars"

Metroid
"Even though it’s a little flawed, this is a huge comfort game for me that I honestly return to a lot more than I do the superior Super Metroid. The exploration is great and it’s truly amazing how fluid and intuitive Samus feels to control given the hardware limitations. I can’t give it 5 stars in earnest because of a few things, most notably the annoying decision to respawn Samus with only 30 health no matter what (Zelda for NES has a similar issue), and how easy it is to cheese Ridley. A lot of people like to say this has aged badly but I don’t think that’s true. The spare graphics add to the mysterious atmosphere, and I’ve come to enjoy not having a map and getting to know the areas of the game just from visiting them over and over again. Definitely a must play for anyone into NES or metroidvanias up through the present. "

"This HAS to be five stars on the basis alone that an entire genre is 50% named for this game. I love explaining to my kids that this game was mind blowing alone for the fact that you have to go left not right to really start it.
That aside the exploration was so cool.
Also, this game is the reason that I write my zeroes with lines through them now. I lost my game because I had written down a password with too many interchangeable ones and zeroes. Woof."
