Metroid Fusion

so while i'm still on the Metroid high after beating Prime, i picked up a used copy of Fusion yesterday. they came out the same year and i wanted to see how they compare.

well obviously this is more like the classic sidescrolling Metroids, and is even called "Metroid 4" in the title sequence, just like Super Metroid was "Metroid 3."

anyway, it's very fun and fairly challenging, although the difficulty level seems to be all over the place. some segments are boringly easy, others are just unfair. also the computer gets annoying with its "go here, do this" routine, and the game is pretty linear for a Metroid title, but at the same time it's nice to have an actual storyline for once. other than those little complaints though it's awesome 2d Metroid action.

also i really dig the Fusion Suit. it's so creepy the way that it's organically fused with Samus, and it's got a really cool design with some great touches, like the Metroid teeth on her arm and the purple nuclei on her back.





anyone else have this game?

Yes, I have this game. I also have the same complaints as you. I was able to play through this game without any resistance at all until I came to the Nightmare boss, which took me forever to beat. I also don't like how linear it was, and I didn't like the fact that Samus had a constant companion in Adam. One of the things I always liked was how the Metroid games made you feel utterly alone, and that just wasn't the case here.

Still, it's a good game. Not close to being one of my favorites in the series, but it sure beats Metroid II.

I hope to see more of the Fusion Powerups return in future Metroid games, though. Some were pretty cool. We already saw Ice Missiles make a return in Metroid Prime 3.

The suit fuses with Samus? That sounds pretty nifty.

Her suit has always fused with her. In Metroid Fusion, when parts of it are removed, we get to see more of how that works.

I mean like organically where it's like a part of her. (maybe it's always been a part of her body but I've never played through a metroid game and I just assume it's not part of her because it comes off in SSBB).

Indeed this was a great game, but I rank it less then Metroid II, unlike Op. I guess maybe I liked it more cause I played it as a wee one, or the fact that that is the first time you actually get the Varia Suit design(Because everything was that greenish shade they had to make the different suits look different so they added bulbous shoulder pads). Anyway I hope with the next SSB game they include a changable costume for the Fusion suit that would be tight.

First time you got the Varia Suit design was Metroid Prime, I believe. I want to say it was Super Metroid, but I don't remember if it was bulkier in that game or just a different color.

And Skull Kid, it's always been organically a part of her. That's how she activates certain functions of the suit. In Brawl and Zero Mission it comes off, yes, but when she has it on, it's a part of her.

Technically in chronological order it would be Prime, but it was in Metroid II: Return of Samus, when you got an upgrade to your Armor, because it couldn't give you a color change it just changed the Shoulder Pads to give it the look of the Varia Suit, I don't remember if it was called that or not though.

We're not talking chronological here, since we're talking about the first time the Varia Suit gets a redesign. But you're right about Metroid II. I completely forgot about that game, probably since I'm not a huge fan of it. I'd like to see it remade, though.
