Because I wanted to see what the area I was headed to would have and traversing the area before it would prep me with energy and missile tanks. It’s that feeling of exploration and preparation that keeps the feeling of tedium away, something the series has done very well even in its inaugural entry. Despite feeling a bit passé in retrospect, the original Metroid is still a classic that holds up well to this day. Continue reading “Colorwind Reviews Metroid – Pre-Metroidvania”
