Super Metroid is notorious for its bs mechanics. After playing through it, I can confirm this is true. There are points in the game that are actually impossible without tedious searching or a walkthrough guide. Despite these shortcomings, Super Metroid is a time-tested work of art that feels just as modern today as other Metroidvanias! The atmosphere is the classic 80s/Alien style dread and loneliness. The powerup progression is smooth and boss fights are menacing and impactful while remaining fair. I would recommend Super Metroid to anyone who enjoys Metroidvania style games.
