Got the game today and am midway through Area 3 2. You should get this game. It's really good.

Edit: I lied, it's actually Area 2

metroid 2 was a gameboy game
samus returns is a remake of metroid 2 with some extra stuff added in. which is not to be confused with AM2R which is a fanmade remake of metroid 2 with some extra stuff added in (?)
i havent played any of them yet but i think that's the gist of it? someone correct me if im wrong

no, that's correct

samus returns has the same basic world and the same plot as metroid II

but there's new graphics, new pickups, new playstyle, new powerups (for example they added several powerups created in super to this game, like zero mission did)

it's overall very much a different game with the same basic core, rather than just metroid II with a skin of paint

I beat the game!

Very good game, it really deserves the name Samus Returns. She's back for real and it really shows.


Overall, very solid game, and it gets me extra hype for Prime 4!

Now to go get that delicious, delicious 100%.

Yes, it's true that very few people from the original trilogy days are still working at Retro.  But honestly, a Metroid game from the people who made DKC Tropical Freeze sounds more exciting for me than a Metroid game from the people who made Prime 1-3.
