This is one of the first games released for the NES in the U.S. Needless to say, this game is a classic.
You play as Samus Aran, (the original Lara Croft) an intergalactic bounty hunter on a mission of epic proportions. The space pirates plan to use the dreaded Metroids they've captured from SR388 as biological weapons to conquer the galaxy. Your mission is to infiltrate their base on the ancient planet of Zebes, and destroy it, the Metroids, and Mother Brain.
The graphics and sound, altough catchy, aren't as good as later releases on the NES, but the game had great play control, a huge maze of tunnels and power-ups to find, cool weapons, and was just plain fun. Download it!
