It's finally here! After many months of delays, life stuff getting in the way, and a few hiccups with my recording setup, I finally have a new episode of my review series to enchant you all. I'm taking a look at Metroid II: Return of Samus, in Episode 025 of Dramatic Readings! This game is a total classic, but isn't always as well regarded as I feel perhaps it should be. After I, myself, got a rough start with the Metroid series as a kid, I rediscovered it as an adult a few years ago, and was blown away by Super Metroid. Revisiting this Game Boy outing, there's a lot to love, and a handful of things not to. I'll tell you all about it with this video, and I hope you enjoy it. What do you think of Metroid II? Do you think it holds up? Have you tried either of the remakes? Let's discuss in the comments below!

I received Metroid 2 as a gift right before a long family road trip. It was perfect for passing the time and miles and one of my favorite Game Boy memories.
@Addicted: Very nice! I kind of wish I would have had the opportunity to play this game as a kid now. I think I might have been a little frustrated with it, but it probably would have been quite fulfilling to beat it, and certainly would have given me more longevity than most of the GB games I bought at that time.
