This is one of the best SM halfhacks I have played, improving on Darkness Spreads 1 in every way. It combines an entirely new route with some amazing level design, making each room look almost nothing like it did in vanilla SM.
Enemies are buffed and missiles fire slower, but they have some really new and nice palettes.
I noticed plenty of places where you can get stuck however, so once you have supers + powerbombs be sure to stock up on them wherever you go. There's a LOT of blockades.
I never ended up finding Wave Beam which meant I had to gate glitch quite a few times (still not sure where it is), and Screw Attack was in a pretty stupid location.
The minimap is not changed at all (if you were to use the map station, it's even worse)so finding which doors still exist and which don't can be really annoying :/
Also, Tourian is really obnoxious and if you can't baby skip, you'll want a reserve or two.
If you can look past these issues, you'll find a halfhack that is super original and brings a new look to Super Metroid. Lowered to 3 stars because of Tourian and the permastucks.
Highly recommend.

I really didn't like this hack.

The biggest issue is that it's simply not fun to navigate through the rooms because they were changed so that there is a lot of garbage in the way. So many rooms become mini-mazes or obstacle courses. I don't have the patience for that anymore. Doesn't help that there are a LOT of slope errors that halt your movement.
Also lots of permastucks if you don't have enough ammo.
Red Crateria usually isn't an issue if the hack is fun to play but in this hack it really annoyed me.
Mini map wasn't changed so it looks like there is more to a room than there actually is.

I don't recommend it.
