Metroid Fusion: Special Edition is a hack using “Sequence Breaking Fusion” as its base that focuses on giving a facelift to the visuals, alongside many gameplay tweaks and room changes
created by me and other people to create the “definitive” edition of the game. It contains the following:

-Much of the game recolored to give it a less overly-saturated (but still colorful) look.
-Better map screen and HUD graphics.
-More compact font (with text tweaks to center better with the width of said font).
-Bomb-jumping and single-wall wall-jumping reimplemented.
-Many new sequence breaks added (early Power Bombs are the most important step).
-Faster door transitions and elevators.
-Optional (and slightly customized) hard mode.
-Many small level design tweaks.
-Some old/unused content restored.
-You can stand on most of the computers (yes, really).

Lostglaceon - Most of the graphical and level editing work, reimplementing some cut content, and putting this hack together.
Wildfire - Helped me test it so many times that I lost count, and gave me many fantastic ideas and suggestions!
Raygun and Cpt. Glitch - A few (very awesome) .asm patches.
Jumzhu - Sped-up room transitions.
Cosmic - The original font and map tiles that I used before tweaking them a bit.
Kazuto - The hack this was built on!

(Review for v1 below)
Achieves what it wants to rather nicely, Isn't really feature heavy at this point and has some bugs, so I'd rate it 'Ok' as of now.
(As of v4.20)
It's nice.

This is a really ambitious hack that delivers very well, and im looking forward to seeing more of the authors work

This hack was awesome throughout. I loved all the reworked and added things such as the re-added hangar room and the sequence breaking aspect of the game as well. Going off of that, I wasn't entirely a giant fan of the original sequence breaking fusion since you could only do truly 2 sequence breaks and that's it, but this game allows for different paths and I even got wide beam early via hell run which I never thought I'd do in this game. Anyway, this hack was awesome and I will be playing it again. Hell, it may even be my favorite recreation of the game. I'll probably even play this version over the original on before Dread too! 10/10 hack. Would recommend.

Really solid hack, some small minor preference differences but overall 9.8/10.
Not a huge fan of the HUD colors nor the palette choices such as sector 6. I loved the boss room changes and the lack of landing lag. 9.8/10, best fusion hack out there.

Just loved it, I managed to get early power bombs and plasma beam, so imagine my suffering to get it. I thought I soft locked the game when I fought the security robot the second time way earlier than expected, but the game puts a destroyable block above the red door before the metroids. all that (and killing ridley) I did before getting the freeze missiles, so I guess you can play any way you like it.

I like the way the game accommodates your sequence breaking into the story, allowing you to skip certain sequences if you did them early. This can lock you out of 100% if you're not careful though. Overall, the other tweaks are quite nice, especially the Hard Mode changes to the boss arenas, but I think too little is changed for it to warrant a 5 orb rating. It's still pretty fun overall though, and a fresh Fusion experience for those who haven't played in a while.

This is THE definitive experience for metroid fusion. The original game should be avoided as it has a lot of problems that this resolves. This is something I couldn't say for the primary improvement hack for zero mission (the removal of the unknown item blocks cause the player to get stuck) nor project base 0.8 (tourian's plot aspects are butchered). Don't ever play Metroid fusion, play this instead.

the map stations spoiled boss icons if you didn't sequence break
