Metroid Fusion was an interesting games that had some pretty cool qualities such as a nice story, cool cutscenes along with navigation rooms which made completing missions and progressing throughout the game more convenient. The story regarding Samus being infected by X Parasites on planet SR 388 was interesting and was something that could easily grab the attention of those who appreciated the storytelling aspect of the game. When it comes down to Game Boy Advance titles of the early 00’s many would agree that Metroid Fusion was definitely one of the best 32 bit titles of its era.
