Rating Summary
This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the role of a bounty hunter (Samus Aran) on a quest to investigate a parasitic organism. From a side-scrolling perspective, players traverse platforms, solve puzzles, and battle alien creatures and robots. Players use an arm cannot to shoot bursts of energy, lasers, and missiles at enemies; robots and aliens use swords and projectiles/energy to attack Samus. Cutscenes include more dramatic instances of violence, often depicted close-up with screen-shaking effects: robots pouncing on Samus, shooting a spike into her chest; Samus shooting a robot in the head; Samus rolling into a ball and attacking a giant alien from inside its stomach. Some aliens emit splatters of colored blood when injured.
