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 …

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 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.

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 …

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 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 …

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 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; …

Super Metroid SNES Review Header Image

“The last Metroid is in captivity. The Galaxy is at peace”. Never before has a videogame opened with such an unusual statement. After all, what is Super Metroid, the third game in the series, without its titular alien species? Lucky for you, me and gaming history, that statement is thankfully a short-lived one. But, it …
