it's commonly said that Japan sold poorly in Japan compared to the west, so what's the deal?

For all the love and attention this game got (it deserves it), im surprised it didnt sell better. I thought it would be in the top five at least. Shocked that Metroid 2 beat it, that game sucked IMHO

@PearlJam I agree. I remember when I first played MP1 and got the space jump and tried to do it but when I found out it was just double jump and I was like WTF! You can't skip stuff like in the 2d ones and make your own challenges and I was really skillful in those. Yeah, I think you can get the SJ in MP at the beginning but I simply couldn't do it :( Also, no wall jump and that something awesome in the metroid games and with skills and all, well, you know what I mean. Super Metroid is my favorite Metroid game.

This banner uses Metroid Prime art. It must be replaced! Replaced with the banner I submitted!?

This is definitely my favorite game of all time. I played it when it first came out, and to this day I remember most of the hidden items. I don't like Metroid Prime games, and I don't even consider them real Metroid games. The 2D side-scrolling Metroids are the real deal and still the best.

Best game ever indeed

This and Secret of Mana fight for my top game.

Super Metroid has retained its place above Metroid Prime 3...for now.

10/10 Masterpiece! Still the best Metroid game and my 2nd favorite SNES game after Zelda.

There will never be a Metroid as good as this. This is Yokoi's masterpiece.

Best game ever. I hope nintendo succeeds in making better though with a new 2d metroid.

Sadly, your days are numbered Super Metroid. Corruption shall overtake you soon. Just don't tell anyone that that doesn't include Virtual Console sales.

Back in 1994 this was the climax of Action Adventures.Equal to ALttP.
Even Today it is an outstanding game.
Thanks to all the creative people at Nintendo.

I remember that what I liked most about this game when I first played it was the atmosphere. I was so tight at times it got almost scary. And the explorative elements were just perfect.

Best game ever! Storyplot, Missions, etc....

This is the best SNES game....quite possibly the best game ever

I've got it on the VC. Haven't played it that much so I can't give it a rating, but I'm liking what I have played so far.

Not as good as SMW, but A LOT better then ALttP.
Alexandervgc (on 19 January 2008)
I have it on VC, and i can say that despite its score, its the second best game on SNES (first is SMW)
Brianna (on 16 January 2008)
Ooh I love this game, so happy my brothers introduced me to it when I was a lil girl :D

Hate is such a strong word!

Finding it boring is far more appropriate.
Chadius (on 06 November 2007)
To hate Super Metroid is to hate existence itself.

It's that simple.
Onimusha12 (on 19 October 2007)
Best. Game. Ever. Period.
Soriku (on 07 October 2007)
Wow, it sold more in Japan the the US or Europe. That's weird...
