Dmitry Glukhovsky's Metro 2033 was a bit of a game changer, regarding both the novel and video game adaptation that followed. On the video game front, it put developer 4A Games on the map as one of the more talented studios to look out for - a studio that, for the most part, had a solid grip on the survival horror genre and how to best apply it to a claustrophobic and confined setting, all the while keeping a great pace with moments of action. Metro Exodus escaped me in 2019, but after finally having time to play it through the Enhanced Edition on PS5, there's a lot to love here.
Without repeating what has already been said in other reviews, Metro Exodus marked a pretty big departure for the series in terms of setting. Moving away from the isolation of the railway tunnels, Artyom and friends board a train called the Aurora and make their way outside to the wider world (and by that I mean pockets of Russia). Each stop they encounter new landscapes, new people (some good, some bad), and new monstrous threats beyond just human bandits and tribes.
Metro Exodus still retains some truly palpable moments of dread and suspense - one in particular nearly gave me an anxiety attack...
Metro Exodus easily gives the best graphical juggernauts in the industry a run for their money.
