    Metroid® (NES®, 1 player, rated E for Everyone – Mild Fantasy Violence, 500 Wii Points): The first installment of the immensely successful Metroid series introduces us to the hideous title creatures and the slick, cybernetic bounty hunter Samus Aran. As Samus, your mission is to penetrate the space pirates' home planet, Zebes, and keep them from destroying the galaxy with the dangerous life forms known as Metroids. Metroid has all the high-tech weaponry, creepy tunnels and crawly alien creatures that anyone could ask for. With its deep and complex game play, excellent music and a rare sense of setting, it establishes a frightening ambience that will haunt and entertain you for a very long time.

    Shining in the Darkness™ (Sega Genesis, 1 player, rated E for Everyone – Mild Fantasy Violence, 800 Wii Points): Dark Sol has vowed to reign over the enchanted Kingdom of Thornwood, and only you can stop him. Find the powerful Arms of Light and battle the deadly beasts that keep your people desperate and starving in this epic journey for peace. Roaming the dark Labyrinth, you'll seek out enemies and collect weapons, all of which will help you pass the test of the Ancients and become a shining knight. Get into the adventure with a stunning 3-D perspective, amazing cinematic views and fast-paced scrolling. You'll move from battle to battle, solving puzzles and discovering secret items in this engrossing struggle between good and evil.

    Cratermaze™ (TurboGrafx16, 1 player, rated E for Everyone – Comic Mischief, 600 Wii Points): Cratermaze is a comical action game set in a parallel world. While on a trip through time, you and your friends are confronted by Kublai, henchman to the evil Zenzombie. He traps your friends at separate points in the space-time continuum. Now you must fight your way through 60 rounds of mazes to save your friends. Dinosaurs, ninjas, robots and other enemies lurk within the mazes, spanning from primitive times to the future. Escape the enemies by digging holes to trap them in and then filling the holes to finish them off. Collect all the chests within the time limit to get the key and exit to the next round. With special items such as shovels and spring platforms, Cratermaze takes its game play to new heights, making for an unforgettable gaming experience.

    Super Metroid isn't a rumor is far as I know, I haven't checked but ign claimed that it was announced for next week on the wii store frontpage.

    edit: http://wii.ign.com/articles/812/812102p1.html ok maybe not on the store frontpage but I was close

    It's no rumor, nintendo said it themselves on the blurb talking about the metroid prime 3 preview video. Super metroid will release next week but the other 2 games will probably be total crap like this week.

    It has been in the (rumor) news that Metroid and Super Metroid would be released in back to back weeks starting today (deemed Metroid month or something like that along with the big release of MP3 and the MP3 stuff going on in Wiiware), so it seems pretty safe to look for Super Metroid next week since Metroid came out this week. Google the topic for all sorts of news.

    If you have a lot of time and can play Metroid with a guide, you'll get it done pretty quick. Originally the game didn't have any kind of mapping and just knowing where to go was as difficult as staying alive. In Super Metroid there is a lot more of what you'd expect in a game like automapping and easier saving.

    Wait for Super Metroid to come out, get a points card, and then get them both is my vote...otherwise you may end up blowing your Super Metroid points on something else. Addicting I tell you!

    Metriod, Super Metriod, Breath of Fire 2. It's just a matter of time before we get all 3. Breath of Fire 2 is a must for any RPG fan.

    I'm debating whether to get Metroid or not. personally I always thought the Metroids were a little over-rated. Fun games, but over-rated, not classic level at least
