Summary: It was a very fun game with a fare amount of bosses and puzzles. I wish it was longer though but I supose that you can only do so much considering it was a remake of the orginal metroid. I also didn't like that the backrounds looked like they came out of a comic book. Including the orginal metroid after you beat the game was realy nice but I wish the galeries were were biger and had creatures and seens. Over all it was a good game.
Summary: I Definitely enjoyed this game, I finished in less than 3 hours on the Normal mode and then went and played through on Hard. also, after beating it I unlocked the original Metroid game for the NES. good game, highly recommend it! Graphics : it's a GBA... little old, but for it's time it was the norm. 7/10 Gameplay : Great controls and all that, very solid stuff. no complaints 8.5/10 Sound : 8/10 Entertainment : Very enjoyable game!
Summary: Classic Metroid Action. This game is a re-telling of the original Metroid game, with a bonus mission at the end. Personally, I didn't care much for the second part, but the first part of the game is really good. The graphics and sound are both superb. The controls are perfect, and the game is fun to play. It is challenging without being unfair. If you are particularly daring, you can also try Hard mode, which is unlocked only after beating the game on Normal.
Not too shabby, but not too long. Spoiler Warning.

Summary: Game plays pretty good. Like a remix to the original '80's Metroid. I like it. And I also like the fact that after you blast Mother Brain into next Tuesday, there's still a bit more to go. Game gets really crazy when you don't have the Power Suit...but unfortunately, once things get really interesting, the end credits show up. This game could've ben made a bit longer. Only complaint.
Summary: Played the original Metroid for the NES? You probably remember how infuriatingly hard it was. Of course, that didn't stop the franchise from growing. The original spawned sequels galore, bringing Samus onto each Nintendo system since the NES in some form. Now Nintendo has taken a stroll down Memory Lane by remaking the original and slapping a new title on it: Metroid Zero Mission.
Summary: This is so much more than a re-release of the original Metroid for NES that came out back in 1986. Of course, some of the most obvious differences you'll notice are the graphics and sound have been overhauled to make use of the technology available to GBA. That aside there are some more significant differences in this release, and they can arguably affect the game as a whole and be subject to criticism.
Summary: Reviewed for Big Boss Games by: TRC I sum up this game as "Thumb Exercise 101". In Metroid Zero Mission for the GBA you play as Samus going on a mission to destroy Mother Brain and all the Metroids. Metroid Zero Mission is a great remake of the original Metroid from the NES. This game has lots of cool stuff added, like a whole other level after you defeat Mother Brain. This game is very addictive. My poor thumbs hurt and I still kept on playing till the very end.
Excerpt: It reminds me of the original Metroid in so many ways, also has alot of Super Metriod features. Which, if you have never played it, you are mising out. It was the best one of the series. But I have to rate this a close second. Why cant it be longer?? Once I started playing this game I wanted it to go on forever, but it didnt. I had Super Metroid on my mind which was a very long game, and this one is maybe half of that. But the quality is something else.
Summary: Whether they're films or games, you've got to love remakes... or hate them. Sometimes a remake takes the idea at the centre of a classic and puts a new spin on it, satisfying new audiences while pleasing fans of the original. Sometimes, a remake regurgitates a much-loved project with horrible acting and no respect at all for what made it good in the first place. Metroid: Zero Mission, however, rules.
