The Best Metroid Game of All Time – The Road To Metroid Dread, Ep. 17

Well, now that I’ve finally played, finished and reviewed the entire Metroid saga from start to finish, I’m pretty exhausted. I mean after spending six months playing these games and capturing a grand total of 2 days, 1 hour, 27 minutes and 53 seconds of footage for this series; I’m pretty sure you would be …

2021203 - Metroid Samus Returns Review Nintendo 3DS

Is it me, or does it really feel like the last few episodes have been a bit of a downer? Don’t blame me of course, for the Metroid series took quite a bit of a downturn for a while. Once the Prime series had completed and Retro Studios moved on to other things, it felt …

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.

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 …

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.

Metroid Fusion GBA Review – The Road To Metroid Dread, Ep. 04

After the release of Super Metroid in 1994, fans of the series couldn’t really be any happier. If only they knew the years of pain they’d be suffering soon after, as while Super Mario and The Legend of Zelda made their own critically-acclaimed jumps to the 3D space via the brand new Nintendo 64 console; …
