Update4: Its been drawn to my attention that MyQueensknight stole the metroid tune. It is by an artist called Stemage of metroid metal (see link). SOrry i cna't change the file at this point, but here's your ccredit form me.
Update3: SOund redone for intro so it doesnt lag.
UPDATE2: Skip buttons now available after watching the movies once.
Update Thankyou for Frontpage, Tom.
A first person shooter and Metoid movie rolled into one.
ALL MUSIC FROM AUDIO PORTAL :D please support NG's audio artists.
The game is only short on EASY mode. Medium and Hard take ages!
Ridley has created an army of weak Metroids. To restore them to their former power, he needs a sample of the full DNA code of the last Metroid. Aware of this, the Galactic Federation sends Samus Aran to retrieve it from the Fulpian Research facility before Ridley can get his dirty claws on it. You must complete all difficulties to see all the bonus movies. Have fun!

This game was fun

it sorta reminds me of like the real thing, you had lots of nice features and the gameplay was just right, didnt lag either it ran smooth and was very entertaining, you should make more its top notch in my book, anyways great game A fun game of metroid almost like the real thing

Just make more thats all i can see.


the game over screen is gay

I couldn't understand how to reload. I'm fairly certain I was supposed to. I didn't read anything in the tutorial about it. I just wish I knew how to do that! The graphics weren't that good too. I did like the set up.

I don't think I've played many of the Metroid games. The music was nice. I just wish you had a tutorial where you actually played as her. I think you said the name "Aran" wrong. Well, it wasn't a real voice.

I LIKE THIS GAME MAYBE BECAUSE IM A METROID FAN but it could have been longer game its like Metroid prime but very easy I give it 3 stars
and good luck to the person who made this

Well, I guess I'd better share my thoughts on this game as well. I haven't played the other two games, although I've seen them via Retsupurae, and honestly I'm glad I only put myself through this one.

Firstly, the concept, a flash Metroid game, is good. There should be some good flash Metroid games out there, but yet the three from The-EXP are the only three, which just makes this one all the worse.

I'm just gonna cut to the chase. The art is terrible. Ridley looks, as said on Retsupurae, like Meta Knight. The only enemies are Metroids, which are way too weak for being Metroids. The bonuses are terrible, and not even worth the 5 minutes it takes to beat this game. That's another point. It's way too short. There's 3 lots of enemies, and the boss against Ridley. There's no replayability, because nobody would want to play this game again, not even to unlock All Your Base. If someone wanted to watch All Your Base, they could look it up on YouTube in a fifth of the time it takes to play this. There's only one puzzle, and it's just "shoot all 4 circles quickly". The game is way too easy on easy, and way too difficult on higher difficulties. It's almost impossible on Hard. There's no middle ground. The voice acting is terrible and the plot is just as bad.

And some people have given this game higher scores, because it came out in 2005. But is that really an excuse for this game being so, so bad? This is The Town With No Name quality, and that came out over 20 years ago. I can't believe I put myself through this game, even after knowing how bad it was, but I did, and I regret every second of it. Don't play this game. The worst part, is that this is the best of the three he made. I'm not playing the other two. I've seen enough from Retsupurae.

The-EXP responds:

I'm not sure you appreciate the shitloads of as needed to make this game.
