Metroid II: Return of Samus was a fun game, but there were a few elements that really seemed to hold it back. The game REALLY suffered from areas that looked extremely similar, making it quite hard to get around. I feel the original Metroid was less confusing/more varied in visuals than the Game Boy sequel. While Nintendo hasn't taken on a remake of their own, one fan has been toiling away for years to make it happen.
This Metroid II fan remake is chock full of neat ideas and updates. Not only does the game look and sound much better, it also features new areas, better A.I. and so much more. We've been talking about this one for so long now, but just today it's been made available to download! Hit up the official blog below to check it out.
