9 / 10.0 - Metroid Dread
Oct 12, 2021

Each EMMI zone is a carefully crafted parkour course where your movement skills are put to the test. Run, wall jump, and slide to maneuver through the obstacles, carefully avoiding the EMMI's line of sight. I worried that these sections would be too slow-paced for my liking, but that was almost never the case. I felt rewarded for staying in motion as much as possible, quickly reacting to my surroundings and using them to my advantage. The Phantom Cloak also exists as a stealthy option, but I found that I didn't have to rely on it excessively. However, when cornered, it came in handy, and it made for some intense moments. You can also counter the EMMI's one-hit KO during the kill animation, but it's an extremely narrow window. The timing is tough, but with enough practice, I was hitting it around half the time.
