Best metroid gameplay. Worst Metroid art direction.

The dark edgy angular shit was taken way too far. That is all.

    No Nintendo games are dark and edgy. Even if they were, prime 2 is much edgier.

      I really liked the colour palette and more sci-fi focused environments, I was tired of caves and le ancient ruins.

      Dread puts an end to the Metroid story so it makes sense she'd go all out.

      Never thought about that, she's normally cool and calm.
      If the devs intentionally made her be like that, it could be related to the adam shit from from the last game. I kinda like revenge samus, it feels sweet when you're really moving fast. And the controls let you go fast (Super still having the best controls because of its low gravity and how tat allows you to move).
      But OP was right man, the art design was not really up to par. It felt like the world was like a jigsaw; independently made pieces that were cut to fit one another.
      The game was fun overall though. Just got it back from a friend I lended it to a long while back. Maybe I'll give it a second go.

      She met the last chozo in existence, and then one beat the shit out of her, put her in multiple life threatening situations, killed the only other and release a parasite that had threatened her life into the universe, then said “I didn’t raise you but I’m your dad and you have to do what I want or I’ll kill you, even though I’ve left you for dead multiple times already you should trust me”

    "Gameplay" is too broad. The game has great controls relating to Samus' movement. But the map design, an inherent part of Metroid's quality as a game, is terrible. So are the EMMI segments, and the reused minibosses.

    The Dread power suit is legitimately one of Samus's best looks. Especially when you get the Gravity variant. Nintendo should change up her suit every game.

      The first 2 games refined the design then it changed in Fusion and then Dread, Prime is the real outlier where it keeps coming back, and there's no other Metroid game that exists.

        Prime 2 and 3 had some wild suit designs, you just merely start with the basic Varia.

          Obviously Super had it for the 3rd time but Super was really the first time the suit felt realized in game, then when it came ot Dread and Fusion it was dropped entirely. Prime reusing it even at the start, is a problem, but really the games problems are how shittily they weave into the Metroid storyline.

          i notice more and more that zoomers have these ultra undeveloped opinions on stuff

          >it isn't
          Haha, except it is, the use of 3d is absolutely on point, as far as the choesiveness of the design it definitely works, it's 2.5d game but it's very easy to read the world around you and see where the floor is and the bounds of the rooms you are in, things like the hard black zones in unplayable space and the deep backgrounds are neat touches to an a visual style that is both detailed and functional.
          The zones themselves are very distinct and there's a good conflict between the natrual elements and the unnatural elements.
          The only thing I hate about the games visuals are that the save rooms are no longer like Fusion which I liked the way they looked, I liked the way that the save zone was elevated in the center and standing on it for a second or two activated it, feels way better than the just pads on the floor in Dread that activate in the same way.

    I think the world art design is kind of lackluster except for the Roman empire Chozo ruins, but the character art design for Samus, the Chozo, and the Emmi's are perfect

    But Dread's designs is less angular than the designs of past games. Ignoring the Prime games that were very spherical.
