Guide: Best Metroid Games Of All Time

As ranked by you.

What’s the best Metroid game of all time? The reveal and upcoming release of ‘Metroid 5’, better known as Metroid Dread, has had many of us going back to either revisit games in the franchise or catch up on ones we missed first time round. We compiled our personal ranking of the best Metroid games long ago with the sublime Metroid Prime in the number one spot, but while we wait patiently for Dread — and more information on the ever-in-development Metroid Prime 4 — we thought it was time to update that list and let Nintendo Life readers have their say.

We asked you to rate your favourites and now we proudly present the rejigged reader-ranked rundown of every Metroid game ever. Remember, this list is not set in stone. The ranking below updates dynamically based on each game’s User Rating in the Nintendo Life game database. This means that it’s entirely possible to influence the order even now. If you haven’t rated your favourite Metroid games yet, simply click the ‘star’ of the game you wish to rate, assign a score and potentially influence the list.
