The Best Version of Metroid II Classic Period

Reviewed By: Shade Aurion on 10 Mar 2019

I have extraordinarily high praise for Quantum’s hack but first I need to say that I actually Let’s Played the whole game before writing this.

For those that would like to see this hack in action, check it out here - [VIDEO]

As far as I can tell, not only has the color palette been extended, the graphic chipset has also allowing for more variety and better looking game design overall. The chosen colors and palettes are what I would have chosen myself so its great to see this game finally get the treatment Nintendo should have given it years ago. Quantum hit it out of the park with this one and I really enjoyed playing through this again. 10/10
