Metroid Dread released recently to major fanfare, marking a triumphant return for the long-dormant 2D line of Metroid titles. With its hotly anticipated release and the sales power of the Switch, the game seems poised to break series sales record in no time, and its strong reception suggests that it could be looking at a couple of awards at the TGAs later this year. Have you picked up the game yet? If so, how do you feel about it? Do you agree with the hype and praise?

I am personally waiting a bit longer before I grab the game, but I am quite interested in trying it out. I’m especially glad to see that a demo for the game is available. I’m sure that I will love Metroid Dread when I do finally play it, but it can’t hurt to try a free demo and make sure that the game is for me. I was initially planning on waiting a while to play, but seeing all of my friends loving the game has me rethinking matters.
