I'm going to dip my toe into the Metroid franchise for the first time! Game plan is:
-Metroid: Zero Mission first
-AM2R next
-then Super Metroid

For Super Metroid, looks like there are a few options for quality of life rom hacks, including:

-Super Metroid Turbo! (samsamcmoi)
-Super Metroid Redux (ShadowOne333)
-Super Metroid Project Base Levels + Control Freak (Omn)

I read the reviews on all these, and they all say each is the very best way to play Super Metroid. 😄 But I'm struggling to get a read on how they compare.

Which might be best for a first-time player? Or maybe you'd recommend something else for first-time Super Metroid? Thanks!

(First post! If this should instead be under gaming discussion, just let me know.)


Personally, I think one should at least try games as they were originally designed for the first time.
Then worry about things like QoL changes.
But that might just be my opinion.

Stick to the original. TRUST ME. Later if you absolutely must, Play a hack.
