    Metro Redux finally does the series justice on consoles, providing excellent visual and gameplay overhauls to both Metro 2033 and Last Light.

    In the end, it's almost more down to the things 4A did to improve the gameplay that make this pleasantly different pair of shooters stand out in their Redux iteration.

    Playing this for the first time gave me a similar feeling to playing the first Bioshock, where you were scared about what was around the next corner, but still intrigued to find out.

    Metro Redux may not offer much to entice players who have already played and enjoyed these games, but this remastered bundle is the best way for newcomers to experience the thrills and scares of this under-appreciated series.

    We can't wait for the third entry, but this is an excellent return trip to the Metro in the meantime. [Nov 2014, p.70]

    If you haven't played Metro before, now is the time to do it. The series has never been better.

    If you’ve never played Metro before, Redux is absolutely worth getting. The action may not be on par with the genre’s greats, but both games make up for that with atmosphere, exploration and setting. Just be aware that the Redux version of Last Light has few changes compared to the original.

    Outstanding game(s). Metro 2033 may be a few years old, but you couldn't tell with the remastered version, which features a graphics upgradeOutstanding game(s). Metro 2033 may be a few years old, but you couldn't tell with the remastered version, which features a graphics upgrade and some nice gameplay improvements. The visuals are great...the lighting in particular. And the need to manage your resources (ammo, gas mask filters, the gas mask themselves as they suffer damage, med kits) as well as recharge pieces of kit just adds to the level of immersion....fantastic.

    If the accents bother you, which is a silly complaint, switch the spoken language to Russian and keep the subtitles in English. But you'll miss out on the side conversations that flesh out the game world. You're rewarded for taking the time to listen in, whether it's ovehearing a guard sympathize with people looking for news regarding their loved ones....or a neo-nazi justifying the murders he's committed in the past....There's a full blown society represented here, and they've done a spectacular job of paying homage to the source material.

    Take the time to explore. You won't run entirely out of ammo (or filters) if you take the time to explore, picking the pockets of dead soldiers or uncovering the keys needed to unlock hidden safes full of cash and supplies. At one point I had almost 500 units of currency and when I reached the next safe zone (station) I went on a mad shopping spree.

    The guns are well-designed and inventive. They have a wonderful "junky" appearance that supports the theory that they've been constructed by people forced to scavenge through the rubble of a dead city. But they're lethal, and have an appreciable kick (although I turned the vibration to "high" before I was happy with the recoil). Slap an IR scope and silencer to the Bastard SMG and you may never feel the need to upgrade to anything else.

    The stealth mechanics are well done, and the AI is better than most recent FPS titles.

    The only thing that frustrated me was the lack of documentation regarding the controls. For Xbox players, to access your throwing knives and grenaders, etc, hold down the Y button to access that navigation screen and hit the right bumper to actually USE what you've selected. Hit the Left bumper to wipe the gore and condensation from your mask. I had to poke around before I uncovered those bits.

    Regardless, here's the thing -- the people behind Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light introduced something DIFFERENT when these games first came out (imagine that, not another CoD or BF clone). They offered something fresh -- and desperately needed in a genre that's frankly been done to death. This redux edition is a reminder (a polished reminder) of how well they succeeded. Snap this up. Ignore the haters...they're failing to appreciate something special.

    Whatever these guys produce next, I'm buying.

    I never played metro redux before buying a used copy on eBay. It is an impressive and beautiful game. All around I can feel the dedicationI never played metro redux before buying a used copy on eBay. It is an impressive and beautiful game. All around I can feel the dedication that the developers put into making the original computer game. The AI is reflexive on hardcore mode they put up a fight. I recommend the game even if it is a used game. Add it to your collection and rock on. Expand

    I never got a chance to play the original releases but the redux bundle for €20 on the Hong Kong marketplace was to good to resist. The firstI never got a chance to play the original releases but the redux bundle for €20 on the Hong Kong marketplace was to good to resist. The first thing I'll say is it would have been nice that a 2 game bundle was unified, however it doesn't detract from the experience. The remastered hold up really well despite these games being older titles. The art direction is very appealing if you are fan of Fallout 3's post apocalyptic world. Initially the gun play feels a little strange, but you quickly remember that most if the weapons are make shift. Some ai animations ate dated and will provide some amusement, particularly in death scenes. There is nothing major to detract from the experience, if you haven't played either of these games yet and if you liked Wolfenstein earlier in the year then check out Metro Redux. Expand
