I remember playing flashback as a kid and thinking it was the most incredible realistic looking game ever. It still looks good but not as "hyper real" as I thought as a kid!

Yeah I saw that deal earlier, might take a punt on it, been a long time since I played it.

I was about to record Audio for my Super Metroid YouTube review, I planned on using the original review I had written and just well speaking it word for word but upon looking at it I realised it was kind of outdated and not as long as I would like so figured I need to write a revised version. I figured I would share the new written review here and then share the Video once I get it finished.

150 SNES games reviewed #10: Super Metroid (REVISITED)

So many games had the word super stuck on the front, I suppose it is only natural, part of it was a marketing gimmick obviously a way to let people know that this machine was so far beyond the last one that not only did the machine need the super title the games you would be playing on it also required that label.

Unfortunately a lot of games didn’t live up to their super title. Largely I feel it was because some companies felt they could give you the same experience as they had on the NES with just upgraded graphics thrown on top.

Super Metroid has the added super title and the added super graphics but it also has so much more than that going for it. Every facet of the game, graphics, sound presentation and gameplay have been worked on and polished to an absolute shine. I think the game stands as a prime example of what needs to be done to take a game from one generation to the next successfully instead of just dragging the game on to the new platform in a lazy effort to ride on the shoulders of past glory.

I think that part of the beauty of the game is that you start of with very little power. Sure you can shoot and move around but there is always something getting in your way an area you can’t reach, a door you can’t open, a puzzle you don’t quite have the pieces to solve yet. It is always obvious when a dead end is not really a dead end when your just lacking the tools you need to progress. So you carry on, you do what you can do pressing forward in whatever direction you can and you wait until you have something you didn’t have before, till you can do things you couldn’t do before and then you think of all of the places that had been dead ends before and you go back there and use this new item or new power to find a new path forward. Yes this means that you do backtrack a little, that you are running backwards and forwards through previously explored areas but it is all done in such a masterful way that you never feel like your being sent on pointless errands like you do in some games, nope this game is made in such a masterful way that you feel like an explorer one moment and then the next moment when the current puzzles are solved and the way has been found you will be met with a different kind of challenge a challenge you need to shoot your way out of and then the game will make you feel like a hero.

There are so many secrets in this game, so many little extra missile tanks and energy tanks that you can get if you just look hard enough. The game is an absolute masterpiece in atmosphere the graphics really set the stage they are somehow stylistic functional and immersive all at the same time and the soundtrack for me is not just a good game soundtrack it has a quality which I think can be held up amongst some of the best movie soundtracks. All of this would mean nothing if the game did not play well. The game plays amazingly it has that perfect quality where you always feel in complete control of your on screen actions and any hit you take feels like its down to an error on your part and not due to any fault on behalf of the games engine or hit detection. When a player gets really good at this game watching them play it is like watching a form of video game ballet as they gracefully flip through the air, land turn and shoot.

Picking this game up again to have a go to review it was a pure pleasure. I resisted doing a big game like this too early during my Super Nintendo review series though because a lot of people will already have played it themselves, and even those who have not played it will have probably watched some video or read some article about the greatness of this game. Many other people have said it before probably a lot of them have possibly done a better job than me. This game to me is a 10 out of 10. I could talk all day but by the end that would still be the point I would end up making. This is more than just a game it is a pretty much flawless video game experience one which if for some reason you have not played yet then I implore you to give it a go.

The price of this game even for cartridge only is often expensive, I only own it because I brought a PAL UK cart from a market back when the GameCube was first coming out, before the price of second hand SNES games went through the roof. I actually only spent like £2 on it if memory serves. When I recently looked up the sort of price the game was going for the cheapest loose pal carts I could find were around £30 with some going for a lot more, I could also see a fair number of reproduction carts which does muddy the waters a little because I do wonder how many are good enough reproductions that they have passed for real in some cases, I am not anti reproduction but I do worry about people trying to fraudulently trying to pass them off as real.

Last time I talked about this game I said that rather than grabbing a cart you could download this game on the Wii U for under £7 and that you could then spend a whole bunch on other Virtual console games. Things have changed a little bit now the Switch is the new Nintendo console SNES titles are no longer for sale in the eshop but it is playable on the Switch if you subscribe to there online service and use the SNES app. Super Metroid is not a massively long game even if you only played it for 30 minutes a night a three month subscription for £7 would give you plenty of time to finish it. but I do still think that there a still a lot of good modern metoridvania style games worth looking into such as the Guacamelee! Titles , steamworld dig 1 and 2. If you want to play Super Metroid on an actual SNES then I do think even if it commands a high price then it is one game thats certainly worth it but if you can emulate it or everdrive it or use the online subscription on your Switch then these are all also good ways to enjoy this fantastic game.

I meant to say a massive thanks for the flashback review. I played that game round a friends house when I was very young on either a snes or mega drive and like yourself was blown away by it. I had been on a vague, sporadic, low effort quest to find that game for ages - I had no idea what it was called I just entered things like 'ultra realistic snes shooter / platformer' into google and I even thought I may have dreamed it!

So it was a treat to stumble across your review and be able to pick up for like 90p. I'm liking it so far too

Im really glad to hear you enjyed the review and that your liking the game I grabbed it myself felt rude not to get it for 99p even if I have it on SNES Megadrive and the Xbox 360 version,
