The hype behind Samus’ return is real, in response to our personal Mr. Reeves:
The Metroid sequence is basically outlined by its haunting ambiance and ominous tone. Impressed by the Alien movie franchise and the works of H.R. Giger, Metroid has all the time been just a few steps faraway from the horror style. Metroid Dread inches the sequence even nearer. The second Samus units foot on Planet ZDR, she turns into prey. Each lethal creature – and machine – on this planet is hungry for Samus’ blood, and he or she is trapped miles beneath the planet’s floor, removed from her ship. And, the one approach out is thru the barrel of her arm cannon. Whereas Samus’ newest journey delivers the basic exploration-based platforming/motion we have come to count on, I by no means shook the all-encompassing anxiousness that provides this journey its title … and I liked each minute of it.
