Metroid was always a very difficult game , yet very interesting and always nourished my curiosity. The enemies were tricky, and so was the gameplay. And with only few weapons really being use-worthy in the game, you'd think that the final boss would be an absolute nightmare.
So what happens after you have been exploring for days? After the hundreds of rooms that you've mapped out and the occasional progress in the huge maze? After having to move through swarms of Metroids, and Ridley, what is the final line of defence against you winning the game?
Red cells and a few wall shooters. Granted, numerous red cells and wall shooters but, just plain obstacles. It's practically Mother Brain's only attack. Plus, there's the fact that they're, well, I'm not going to say easily dodgable, but they're dodgable, Plus, usually by then you have enough health to just walk through all the shots. And how many missiles does it take to kill MB? 7, maybe 8? standing on that little platform thats in front of MB and spamming the missiles assure you a quick victory, so long as you can also hit the red cells. It just gets to a way that, MB felt like a disappointing end to the game. She felt more like an obstacle than an actual boss. Plus, she has no real motives. I don't know why she's evil and controlling the cells and blasters to attack Samus. I don't know anything about her. And the worst type of villain is the villain who's just bad for the sake of being bad.
Also Captain N and the game master's version of MB almost made me throw up as a kid.
@Advertisement, @Master_72: To my understanding, the Space Pirates wanted on Zebes and MB lowered/weakened any defenses Zebes had to let them in. She was on their side for a little while before the Space Pirates attacked.
