I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Metro Exodus earlier this year, even though the claustrophobic tunnels of the metro were mostly replaced with grueling trips across a hostile surface. That said, some of the most memorable encounters were still those that took you back underground, navigating mutant-infested tunnels by torchlight, counting every shot and impact, as your ammunition and medical supplies dwindled. The Two Colonels DLC doubles down on that classic tunnel-crawling design and then some, expanding upon the events in the rushed last chapter of Metro Exodus, and providing Colonel Miller with some much-needed closure.

It’s worth noting upfront, The Two Colonels DLC has a strong narrative focus. In the three and a half hours it took me to complete on Ranger Hardcore difficulty, I probably spent a third of that time engaged in dialogue or exploring the Novosibirsk stations, eavesdropping on conversations to eke out a little more of the backstory.
Enjoys games with awesome stories and characters, along with new and interesting hardware. Dislikes day-one patches and driver updates.
