While this isn't Samus' greatest adventure, it is still a very good one.
Metroid: Samus ReturnsÂ is a remake that plays it close to the original, for both good and the bad. To its credit, the story (or lack thereof) is still a thrilling exercise of environmental storytelling and the puzzles are varied and interesting; however, the lack of boss variety, experimental stop-and-go gameplay, and dated visuals make thisÂ MetroidÂ title more of a love letter for old-school fans, and potentially a chore to those more accustomed to contemporary genre norms.
Metroid: Samus Returns is a triumphant return to form for the franchise, and its greatest victory is that it makes it feel as though Samus never left to begin with.
