Another Metroid 2 Remake

I love the Metroid series. But, not every game in it has been great. The first game I have never been able to beat. It is very difficult and hard to control, especially if you didn't grow up playing NES games. Metroid 2: Return of Samus was made for Game Boy. Not GBA, or GBC, but Game Boy. So it isn't great, although somewhat fun. Metroid 3: Super Metroid is amazing. It is a great game. Ever since then, the games have also been fun, with Metroid Fusion being not so good, but tolerable, and everything else being awesome (well, I can't speak about Metroid Prime: Hunters, but the demo seemed fun when I was playing it). Metroid: Zero Mission was especially fun, as it was basically a remake of Metroid, just with all the things that were made afterwards also. So, while the rooms are in the same locations, pretty much, and you pretty much follow the same path, you also have times where you get other items, like the Super Missiles, or Power Grip, or the Unknown items, which turn out to be the Plasma Beam, Gravity Suit, and Space Jump. It is a lot of fun. Metroid 2 hasn't officially been remade, but over at Project AM2R, there is one being made that follows the feel of Metroid: Zero Mission. The completed version isn't done yet, but there have been two demos that are lots of fun. I highly reccomend Metroid games in general (start with Super Metroid, then work your way through the others), and this is looking like it will be awesome as well.
