Metroid Prime: Federation Force Review – The Road To Metroid Dread, Ep. 14

Metroid Federation Force Review Nintendo 3DS

Before you enjoy this latest instalment of The Road To Metroid Dread, please allow me to apologise for the less than stellar capture quality of Metroid Prime: Federation Force. I do not have access to an expensive and hard to source 3DS capture card, and emulators do not run Federation Force particularly well. Capture for …

Nintendo Land: Metroid Blast Review – The Road To Metroid Dread, Ep. 13

Metroid Blast Review Nintendo Wii

This week, I thought I’d have a little bit of fun. The Wii U is a console close to my heart – Nintendo’s first HD system, one that was taken away from us far too soon, and home to a lot of great games. The Switch might have had shinier versions of most of the …

Released in 2010, Metroid: Other M is the first Japanese-developed entry in the series since 2002’s Metroid Fusion, and a return to the fold for series co-creator, Yoshio Sakamoto.

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption Wii Review – The Road To Metroid Dread, Ep. 11

Metroid Prime 3 Corruption Review Nintendo Wii

It’s 2007, and things are looking pretty damn rosy for Nintendo. To say that the Wii’s 2006 launch was successful is arguably the understatement of the decade, and the Nintendo DS was also hitting its stride. For the first time in a long time, Nintendo were absolutely ruling both the console and handheld markets. Even …

Metroid Prime Hunters Nintendo DS Review – The Road To Dread, Ep. 10

Metroid Prime Hunters Review Nintendo DS

Following the initial console launch bundle of the Nintendo DS and the demo of Metroid Prime Hunters in 2004, players would not see the full game until 2006. Much like First Hunt, this first-person shooter takes inspiration from the two Gamecube Metroid titles, with a few changes to better suit the small, dual-screened handheld system. …

Metroid Prime Pinball Review Nintendo DS

There comes a time in every popular gaming franchise’s life, where it must spread its wings and fly. To make bold new endeavours in an attempt to give fans more, keep its name out there, and hopefully attract new fans – Yes, even games sell out. For every Super Mario World, there’s a Mario is …

Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt – The Road To Metroid Dread, Ep. 08

Metroid Prime Hunters First Hunt Nintendo DS

So, cards on the table – I did a fair amount of thought on whether I should have done this video. You see Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt is not exactly a game in the fully-formed sense. However, after thinking it over, I do believe it should be covered in this series, even if this …

Metroid Prime 2: Echoes Review – The Road To Metroid Dread, Ep. 07

Metroid Prime 2 Echoes Gamecube Wii Review

The release of Metroid Prime began what could only be described as a renaissance of sorts for the series. The massive success of Retro Studios’ debut title had cemented Metroid as one of Nintendo’s big hitters, and if you want further proof, I bring you one solid fact: Over the span of 8 years following …

Metroid Zero Mission Review Featured Image

We’re around the halfway point on my Road To Metroid Dread, but we’re already turning around and already going way back to the very beginning of our journey, to revisit the very first Metroid game, recreated from the ground up in the form of Zero Mission. If you recall my review of Metroid, you’ll know …

Metroid Prime Review – The Road To Metroid Dread, Ep. 05

Metroid Prime Review Featured Image

As previously mentioned in my Metroid Fusion review, fans were hard done by in the years between Super Metroid and the double-whammy of Metroids Fusion and Prime. Nintendo didn’t have the confidence of delivering a 3D Metroid game, ensuring that Samus’ only N64 appearance was as a competitor in Super Smash Bros. When it turned …
