How does Metroid hold up today?

How does Metroid hold up today? I mean, Super Metroid is one of the all-time greats. But today we’re going to go waaaay back to 1987ish: the advent of the Metroid. Originally released for the Famicom DiskSystem, Metroid is an excellent choice for the console, as an onboard hard drive allowed players to save their game as they wished. The US cartridge version of Metroid on the NES relied on a pain-in-the-butt password system. The original Metroid indeed holds up today and it’s a must-have for anybody that wants to know how to build a retro collection.
