Plot. Samus Aran has been hunting Metroids and Space Pirates for a time, and she is always called to action whenever there is a problem. With the Metroids growing as a threat to galactic civilization, Samus is called to action once again. Her mission: to eradicate all Metroid organisms on their home planet, SR388. Now she heads to the caverns below, and she finds more lethal creatures and Metroids than the previous once she encountered.
Gameplay. Players can aim up, and also aim down while they're in the air. They can use a number of missiles and get them all over the areas of the cavernous areas. They can also get about 5 energy tanks. There are also beam upgrades such as ice, spazer, wave, and plasma. The Spazer and Plasma beams were introduced in this game. Other techniques that were introduced in this game were: the spring ball, spider ball, and also the space jump. Battling the Alpha, Gamma, Zeta, and Omega Metroids will be a test to the player's abilities.
Music. Some of the songs were not as epic as in the other Metroid games, but the theme of the Metroid Queen was memorable, and so was the battle against the other Metroids as well.
Rantings. Well, the Metroids continue to be a pain in the ass, but my most hated one out of all of them, was the Zeta Metroid. The Zeta Metroid is constantly moving around and it's a nerve-wrecking pain in the ass, and imagine, you were as good as gone when you ran out of missiles while fighting them. Another thing I hated was the Gamma Metroid, with it's electrical lance, it had me putting my gameplay to the test, and my patience as well. Also I kinda hated that this game lacked the epic music from the original game.
Good Aspect. Though staggering and difficult, the story is quite alright, and also you get multiple endings like in every Metroid game. Also I enjoyed the ending, but I will not spoil it for those who are reading this review. Also I enjoyed the trick that you can make on the Metroid Queen, by getting inside her mouth when freezing her head, and bombing it's stomach multiple times.
Overall. Metroid II: Return of Samus is a decent game, but not very epic. I give this game a 6 out of 10
