The Metro games have always been an acquired taste, equal parts clunky first-person shooter, grueling survival-horror game, and narrative-heavy adventure. With Metro Exodus, 4A Games took the action out of the titular metro and across the remains of post-apocalyptic Russia, with mostly positive results. Dark, labyrinthine, mutant- and bandit-infested tunnels, interspersed with quick jaunts across the irradiated surface, were replaced with breathable air and open spaces, made no less deadly thanks to a myriad of new enemies and natural hazards. With the expansions, 4A Games have reigned it in and focused more on what made the prior games great, with The Two Colonels offering up a classic but brief Metro dungeon-delve, and now Sam’s Story, which offers a more focused trek through a tsunami-devastated Vladivostok, as the titular protagonist tries to find a way back to the USA to find out what happened to his father.
Unlike the base game and The Two Colonels expansion, Sam’s Story only has a few lengthy dialogue scenes, even less optional conversations, and the bulk of the story is conveyed over the radio...
