Metro Exodus, for fans of the series, represents an incredible leap forward - one that manages to retain every janky element that made the previous games a unique experience - while demonstrating to other developers that open-world gameplay need not ditch a complex narrative, careful pacing, and curated mission design. It picks up shortly after the events of the prior game, taking only a little inspiration from the Metro 2035 novel, before blazing its own path across post-apocalyptic Russia.
You’ll navigate a brutal, unforgiving world, but also one full of loyal companions, heartfelt moments, and hopefulness. Assuming you’ve kept your karma score in check, it also offers up a satisfying conclusion to Artyom’s story, while hinting there may be scope for more to come. For newcomers, the heavy movement and deliberate animations, complex control scheme, chaotic and deadly combat, frequent periods of downtime, and reliance on knowledge of prior events, make this a tougher sell.
Enjoys games with awesome stories and characters, along with new and interesting hardware. Dislikes day-one patches and driver updates.
