Im currently playing through it on my old brick Gameboy and I'm nearing the end. Here are my thoughts on the game.

Positives+

Very atmospheric
Gameplay still holds up
Music is catchy
Metroid fights are fun and scary

Negatives-

Screen can feel too cramped at times
Color would help areas not look the same
Map would be very helpful
Sometimes there is no music, just ambient sound
I like games and anime. My favorite games include the following: Mother 1-3, Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Cross, Zelda LA-ALttP-OoT-MM-ALBW, and Super Smash Bros.

My biggest gripes with the original is that yeah, there is no map, I got super lost since it had been a long time since I stopped playing, also the Metroid fights are all same-y, and kinda frustrating for me, they lack proper challenge, as far as I could tell it was just a matter of tanking most hits and just shooting missiles to the belly, they were fun I'll admit, but I felt they had weak execution in comparison to the new one, also some don't convey taking damage like previous stages, I thought I was only pushing them with my missiles.

Other than that, it also felt pretty short, and some powerups felt out in the open and not very useful. One other thing that happened to me is when I was fighting the last 3 Omega Metroids I ran out of missiles, I had to farm 100~ and the lack of enemies didn't help on that area. Finally, the Space Jump seems to be really janky and sometimes inconsistent, I kept falling despite maintaining a pretty consistence rhythm to my jumps.

I tired and gave up very quickly.

That game just isn't fun along with the original. It's cramped, ugly, colorless, mapless, repetitive etc.

Obviously not. The original refers to the original game of the series.

Me.
The original game wasn't bad, but the remake improves on it in every way by adding elements from Super, Fusion, Zero Mission, and even Prime.

I think it still deserves a lot of credit for introducing some iconic powerups though.

Well, you poorly worded that in your original post then.
