The Good: Improved presentation, everything from Fusion is here, plus some
The Bad: You can beat the game in a couple of sittings, absurd boss fights, not enough new content over Fusion, almost non-existent story
I really loved Fusion and I was really looking forward to Zero Mission but after playing it I didn’t like it as much. The game improves on every level over Fusion such as the graphics, sound, and game play (you can play as Zero Suit Samus!) The story isn’t as good either, in fact it’s hardly there at all. All I knew is that Samus was sent to Zebes to destroy Mother Brain and that’s it…yeah some story.
All the same weapons and power ups are here that were in Fusion and ZM features a whole new set of bosses and enemies. I really hated the boss fights in this game because they were so difficult and almost impossible. If I weren’t playing this on an emulator then they WOULD be impossible. If you loved Fusion then play Zero Mission but don’t expect what you got in Fusion.
