Summary: If you don't want to buy points on the Wii (especially since you can't find point cards for them anymore other than on ebay), this is a great option to obtain some awesome nostalgic games for Wii's virtual console. Super Metroid is often referred to one of the best Metroid games ever made, and I have to agree with that. The next best on I've played is Metroid Fusion, which can be downloaded on the Wii U.
Summary: Super Metroid is a great addition to any gamer's library. In the past I've played titles like Metroid Fusion and other Metroid games. This feels like a deeper experience from the good old days. It almost feels like playing an RPG. The game has a lot of replay value and hidden power ups and collectables that you can use to your advantage.
Summary: This is still one of the best games I have ever played. I normaly play Call of duty and Gears of war on Xbox and this game still holds my attention. As far as being able to beat this game in an hour, that is a joke. You would have to beat this game at least 10 times to learn everything, or use a cheat book. You would still be missing half the game. It's like beating mario using the warps, it's fun but you're missing the point.
An excellent game that is worthy of bearing the Metroid name
