To say we were gutted to miss out on this game release yesterday was an understatement, as after all these years of waiting, ' Project AM2R ', which is a high grade Metroid 2 fan based remake for PC and Linux(soon) has finally been released! Metroid is the the most dangerous of species in the galaxy. One of the most important moments of the Metroid storyline happened in SR388, after a titanic battle between Samus and the mighty Queen Metroid. Memories of that event start to fade, it was long ago. But now you too can experience Metroid 2: Return of Samus again with stunning new graphics and high quality gameplay!
As the developers have said, "taking elements from newer Metroid titles: the fast paced gameplay of Metroid: Zero Mission, the atmosphere and solitude of Super Metroid, and adding new game mechanics, AM2R is one of the most ambitious Metroid fan games.” It features : a map system, Metroid Zero mission style gameplay, updated enemy AI, minibosses, new areas, challenging fights, stackable beam systems, completely redrawn sprites, log system and a high quality soundtrack. One not to be missed!
