GR+ Live: Our Metroid 2 remake walkthrough dissects AM2R

(Image credit: Triforce141)

AM2R , a painstaking Metroid 2 remake modeled on Metroid Zero Mission, is one of the most impressive fan remakes of a major video game ever made. Started in 2006, it was finally finished and released on the original Metroid NES game's 30th anniversary. Then as soon as it appeared, Nintendo aggressively moved to have it taken down. Being huge Metroid 2 fans ourselves--not to mention a group disappointed by the series' long dormancy leading to the decidedly un-Metroid-like Federation Force--we've decided to devote two streams to playing through the Game Boy version and this stunning remake. Join us and game designer Moon Kid for this AM2R walkthrough.

I've been playing games since I turned four in 1986, been writing about them since 1987, and writing about them professionally since 2008. My wife and I live in New York City. Chrono Trigger is my favorite game ever made, Hum's Downward is Heavenward is my favorite album, and I regularly find myself singing "You Won't See Me" by The Beatles in awkward situations.
