    Even though it says digital in the title, it is the physical cartridge. The book is amazing as well as the Steelbook. If you have this or are having thoughts on getting the Special Edition, I highly recommend if you’re a big fan of Metroid.

    This has been a wonderful Special Edition for this game. I really enjoyed the artbook the most from this.

    The box seal indicates it has been opened. Even though the content aren't missing or damaged, it is very disappointing. Is best buy saleing a returned item as new? In addition, all four corners of the box is damaged because this item was shipped using a bubble envelope. Really. You can do better, best buy.

    Amazing game! Its MetroidVania style gameplay is awesome. Its the most challenging Metroid out there so be ready! Beautiful graphics & tight controls make this one shine, 9/10! It only took about 20 years to come out...

    I love this game, gameplay, and the difficulty! That deserves 5 stars alone. The steel book case and art is also beautiful.

    As a big fan of Metroid, I was very excited when I finally was able to get my hands on one of these. The game itself is fantastic, if not one of the best in the entire series. It was very nice finally getting to play a 2D Metroid again with a brand new story. The art book is also very beautiful and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all of the different concept art for Dread as well as some of the other 2D games in the series. The steel book is also very pretty and looks amazing displayed. The only reason I’m giving this 4 stars is because when it arrived, the box was damaged on the sides. I’m sure that wouldn’t be an issue for some, but for me being a collector it did bother me. The art book also had a little damage on one of the corners, but nothing major and it is very easy to miss. I’m not sure if this is Best Buy’s fault or not, due to the fact I’ve seen several of these online looking like this, but nonetheless it was disappointing. Other than that though, it is still totally worth it and I can’t recommend it enough.

    Beautiful Hard-cover artbook.

    Amazing special edition. One of the best I have ever bought. The book is hard-cover! The photo on Best Buy makes it look like a paper-back, but it is indeed a hard-cover. The steelbook case is beautiful. Unfortanetly, the US version does not come with a regular switch case for the game, or atleast mine didn't. I don't care for it though as the steel-book is way better. I have not opened the artwork cards yet.

    Collectors boxes are not well protected

    Firstly, this is more of a 4.5 star than a 4. The edition is amazing! However, they dont have any kind of protection on the box (not even plastic wrap), so many have dents and scratches on them. Mine have scratches in all four corners on the foil side. Pretty disappointing but it could’ve been worse compared to others I’ve seen. The art book and other goodies are super high quality. It’s just unfortunate they weren’t protected better by the manufacturer considering it’s a collectors edition. I still highly recommend getting one if you can find one! Please add a protective sleeve next time, Nintendo

    This game is awesome. I loved it. Btw, even though it says "digital" on the item's name (metroid dread special edition), YOU DO GET the cartridge inside the metal case. That is because there is no such thing as digital version of the special edition. So buy it with confident, enjoy it and love it. Lol. The only 2 problems I got were with Best buy. First, because they never sent me the promised stickers included with my purchase. And second, the item box came beat up due to cheap packaging from best buy. I even contacted them about the stickers but they said they couldnt send them to me. So I lost that. But best buy experience aside, this game will not dissapoint. Please check the pictures attached to this review for visual details.

    I would like to write this review getting my Metroid fix through Best Buy. Obviously game and special edition are awesome and the special edition is well worth your money if can get. It is really surprising in terms of size and quality of box and artwork. Like some others I will be keeping as collectors item . I have seen some reviews complaining about the shipping and damaged items. I have had good and bad experiences with BB shipping and collectors items. But overall have been packaged with care and competency. The one time i had an actual problem with shipping damage I wrote review and let know of dissatisfaction and got next order delivered immaculately and even by 1st class shipping. This time I had 1st pre-ordered the Dark Samus amiibo for store pickup. And was able to order Special Edition and Dread Amiibo for pickup at same store after release since preorder had sold out. Long story short picked up all three and as can see all in great condition. Very pleased with overall experience. Shout out to my local store for always doing a very good job with store pickups. Will treasure for years to come.

    This is an amazing value for a Special Edition. The art book is gorgeous, as are the art cards, and steel book. The game is simply incredible. I’ve been waiting years for this. The only problem is that Best Buy damaged the box of my special edition and could not replace it because it was out of stock and wouldn’t even give me a discount despite it being their fault. I really am not happy about that.

    A Metroid franchise masterpiece

    I will start off by saying to you that if you want a game that tells you where you need to go next, and point you to where you need to go, what you need to get, or what you need to shoot, then don't bother picking this up. This is not for you. There is very little hand holding in this game, like its predecessors, and you need to do a lot of trial-and-error to find your way through the labyrinth like planet. If you got the amiibo, try not using them on your first run, but they will give you extra health and missile ammo, which will come in handy for you, especially after the game's difficulty picks up its pace and doesn't give you too much breathing room. Don't get me wrong, the game is balanced, but it's going to be a better play for veterans of the series. The SE box (which sadly is no longer in stock) is a real jewel, worth every cent spent on it, but one thing I hated was getting ONLY the Steel Book case, and not the regular one. The cards with pictures of the old games are a good touch for nostalgia, and the artbook is big, heavy, and full of good pictures to feed your eyes with. TOTALLY RECOMMEND THIS!!!

    Limited Edition sold online only.

    I was lucky to be able to order this from BB online. But of course their shipment packaging is horrible and it was sent in a plastic bubble mailer. It arrived crushed, and I was stuck having to choose between keeping a damaged item or returning something that was limited to begin with. The game is what the game is, and hopefully a good sequel will get made even though Nintendo has kinda already announced that this will be the last side scroller based Metroid adventure that they're gonna make.

    Horrible packaging best buy! This is collectors item and I received smashed box. Being long time best buy customer this is very disappointing. You guys need to learn how to do proper packaging especially with special edition collectors edition items.

    Bought this for my brother for Christmas. Arrived safely and in very good condition. My brother loved the game as well as the art book, steel case, as well as the art cards. Glad I was able to get one!
