    Gorgeous, vast, hugely atmospheric and full of undefeated soul. A Molotov cocktail of emotional narrative and explosive thrills, this is 2019's first serious Game of the Year contender.

    Metro Exodus is a masterpiece. Only the silence of the main character is a major problem. The game has breathtaking artistic direction and visual quality. The staging is exceptional, it allows one to drawn in abyss deep characters. It is tough to imagine a better adaptation for the novel of Glukhoovsky.

    In my opinion Exodus is quite easily the best Metro game ever made — with the combination of huge explorable areas, each with unique post-apocalyptic charm, and a wonderful tactility, expressed in the way you interact with the world and in the crafting system. The story, though at first seems somewhat silly, adapts, just as the characters following the narrative do. Metro in the past for me felt like it was never reaching its true potential, too much like a corridor shooter but never really a *true* survival game. But with this installment, the series has truly spread it’s wings. Metro shmetro, I hope they never go back.

    Metro Exodus takes a different approach than previous installments in the Metro-franchise. The game feels more like STALKER and that's a good thing. The only question is how much of the old Metro-soul remains. A great experience, but a different Metro.

    It is at its best tends to be when you are on your own, exploring a beautifully drawn post-nuclear wilderness or creeping through the dark, lighter in hand. That Metro Exodus can do both with equally aplomb is arguably its greatest strength.

    Pulling its inspirations from across videogames, this radioactive romp is the strongest in the series, and one of the best post-apocalyptic games ever made.

    Metro Exodus is a mishmash of borrowed ideas that falls short of creating a worthy sequel, while holding tight to the previous mistakes of the series.

И эта часть не исключение, потрясающая атмосфера, захватывающий сюжет и конечно приятная графика. Разработчики и так сделали прекрасную игру при таком небольшом бюджете. Я даже зарегистрировался на метакритике, чтобы поддержать разработчиков, вы думаете что у 4A Games заоблачные бюджеты, большая группа разработчиков. И вы еще ставите низкие оценки! И так игру ждали очень долго, а вы ее еще и топите! В общем разработчики молодцы, а вы тупые хейтеры просто топите игру в дерьме и наших отечественных разрабов! Будем ждать следующую топовую часть МЕТРО. Expand

The result is something like this mixed metascore rating as well as theWhat happens when an excellent game becomes mired in controversy? The result is something like this mixed metascore rating as well as the myriad of review bombs on steam. What's unfortunate here is that while the sudden shift from Steam to Epic games does warrant some push back, this backlash might do more bad than good in the long run.

    Metro Exodus is a single player survival horror shooter with light rpg elements that carries with it no monetization schemes, no gear grinding, and is completely story driven. There is no season pass or micro transactions. Everything that the devs have crafted is given to you from the first and only $60 purchase. This alone warrants praise at a time where every AAA title is perverted by shady monetization schemes levied by greedy publishers. Community opposition is invaluable when facing the like of Electronic Arts, who's stock continues to plummet due to horrendous corporate practices such as release deadlines and pay to win economies.

    4a on the other hand is a relatively small studio with only 150 employees that is trying to make it's mark on the gaming industry through emphasizing single player titles that are atmospheric and experimental. Metro Exodus is no exception.

    While not perfect and falling short of the many Sony first party studio titles, Metro Exodus is an excellent single player title that expands it's claustrophobic interior levels to the open expanse of Russia while retaining the oppressive atmosphere that has characterized this series.

    Presentation: Currently the best looking title in the market. From detailed character animations, excellent texture rendering, a multitude of weather effects which substantially changes gameplay, to lived in environments that have been meticulously and lovingly crafted by the devs, this game features some of the best post- apocalyptic environments ever conceived.

    Gameplay: While excellent, the desolate and grim environments are only as good as the creatures that populate them. And, like the environments, the radiated creatures add an insurmountable amount of fright and terror when exploring the world (most particularly the Volga when encountering watchmen and shrimp with limited to no ammunition). Within the open expanse of the Volga and the Caspian desert I would avoid encountering creatures as much as possible due to their ability to absorb bullets while I yield no reward for their death. The human enemies on the other hand I would always engage with gladly in order to collect gear and supplies. Overall enemy types are diverse and warrant different combat tactics in order to be dealt with swiftly. The core combat is fairly straightforward and rudimentary. You have ranged and close ranged stealth combat or can go guns blazing in a matter that is not all that different from Far Cry. Though what gives Metro an extra punch is it's customization depth. Pick up any gun and you can transform a magnum into a sniper by adding a scope, long barrel and a wooden stock. Don't care for the stock assault, shotgun, and pistol classes that are offered? Try the railway gun which carries a variety of ammo including inferno. The ability to transform every conceivable portion of a weapon to fit your specifications makes every engagement exciting and novel. Furthermore, since ammo is sparse, Metro rarely plays like Far Cry and every encounter can very well be your last. It is highly recommended that skilled players ramp up their playthrough difficulty to hard. This truly allows players to test their survival skills and is highly rewarding. My only complaint is a boss fight in the Taiga region that players have to endure twice. It is essentially a bullet sponge with an exceptionally long reach that bogs down the progression of the story while simultaneously causing you to waste all the munitions you've gathered, leaving you nothing for Novosibirsk. Other than that, it's excellent. Each region presents a different challenge. Novosibirsk is particularly frightening and disorienting, offering some of the most tense and sweat inducing levels ever conceived.

    Story: This is both the strongest and weakest element of Exodus. It begins with a bang with Artyom still in Moscow attempting to find life outside the metro. Once certain essential plot points unveil themselves in the first hour or two, a plethora of narrative potential could have been tapped into which, instead, is traded for all the cliched staples of a post-apocalyptic game. From religious cults to cannibals, any attempt to thwart or subvert the expected post apocalyptic formula is immediately relinquished in favor of survivor horror oriented conflicts. Furthermore, because much of the horror in Metro is dependent on isolation and desolation, players do not have many opportunities to interact with characters outside the the Aurora train, which grants little room for individual characterization.

    Ultimately an excellent game that is well worth your time!
