I don't find Super Metroid very good. There were just a few glaring issues I had with the game that just ruined the experience for me. For awhile, I thought it was because I started with fusion, but after enjoying metroid 1 (original) and the metroid 2 remake, I feel it's not because I don't like traditional metroid games. The first glaring issue for me with Super Metroid is the sound. The music is great, but the overall sound effects sounds very low quality, especially in comparison with other SNES games (like super mario world). Nothing in the sound has any oomph and you can tell how bitcrushed everything it. The worst offender being the blaster, just sounding like a pew pew gun instead of some laser cannon. It just threw me off big time and constantly takes me out of the immersion. Can't complain about the graphics, it's SNES and it looks good on it. Gameplay is like any other metroid game, but I find myself constantly getting lost. Whenever I'm traveling, I always end up in a loop. Going round, and round moving up and down elevators to play the same song and tune. After awhile, I just got bored and stopped.
Maby Super Metroid is an acquired taste, but that's what people say about a lot of things in life. But from my experience with things that have "acquired tastes" I can't keep them down for a tenth of a second before ruining the table, and I quite like my current table.
