Axiom Verge is about as close as one can get to Super Metroid (in terms of gameplay - the story is much, much different) yet still be unique. You play as a scientist that wakes up in a bizarre world after an experiment gone awry. As a fan of metroidvanias in general, I was quite happy with this title. Some of your acquired abilities differ slightly from Samus' skillset, but they're still interesting and offer new design space to challenge players with.
You can find a few more of my thoughts on the game at 4:01:12 in the above video, but it's safe to say this one is worth grabbing!
