It definitely ranks with the system’s best.
I think Metroid Dread might be the best switch exclusive since Mario Odyssey

It’s great to see newcomers discover the series.
Metroid Dread is the opposite of dreadful. Well, it can be quite tense. Jokes aside, this game is great, A+. My first Metroid and definitely not the last pic.twitter.com/QlO4lfAxYT

There’s a lot to love.
i got metroid dread for christmas, and i’ve played about 5 hours of it
i can safely say this is one of my favourite games on the switch, defintely worth getting. platforming feels really good and so does combat. areas also feel distinct enough for exploration to not get boring
