Metroid 2, Remade For PC

Also on a free tip is this polished, determined demo of a fan remake of one of the old Metroid titles from the original Gameboy. I’m generally not that much of a classic Nintendo kinda guy – give me X-Com over Zelda any day – but have always had a massive soft spot for the elaborate and affectingly maudlin platforming’n’puzzling of the 8/16-bit Metroid game (though Metroid Fusion on the GBA is probably my favourite, oddly). Unfortunately the excessive backtracking and ultra-bosses of the Gamecube/Wii Metroids made me a sad panda, however. This cheerful throwback is looking lovely though, and is a far cry from the greenscreen of the GB version. Great to have this resolutely console game on PC, and I do hope it makes it to a full-blown release before the wrath of Ninty kills it.
