This upgrade is so extensive, it will require a Ray Tracing capable GPU as the minimum spec, and we will need to deliver this version as a separate product – it is not a simple ‘patch’ to the base game – instead it will be offered as an extra entitlement to all existing Metro Exodus PC players.

    Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition is an amazing upgrade that no one will think they wanted until they play it. The free nature of it allows fans to return to a more immersive world, while those who have yet to play can experience the best version available. This is the way Metro Exodus needs to be played. Sadly, the PC requirements are high, but those who can play will be treated to some serious eye candy.

    Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition for PC is an add-on that enables advanced ray tracing effects and it works only on RT-ready video cards from AMD and Nvidia. While it does look impressive on PC, it may be more interesting for next-gen console users, since it makes the most of advanced graphic capabilities of PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

    Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition is a solid introduction to the ray-traced future of gaming, barring minor technical hiccups.

    Metro Exodus is not as perfect as one would have hoped.

    Graphics improvements aside, the title of 4A Games confirms itself as the excellent shooter that we praised a couple of years ago.

    Metro Exodus is back in a high-octane enhanced edition to push your new gaming hardware to the limit. Had the Enhanced Edition demanded a price for everyone, we wouldn’t be nearly as excited or impressed. Since the enhanced version is free for current owners of Metro Exodus on both PC and consoles, this is a great reason to dive into the game again.

I fell in love with the gripping story, soundtrack and brutal combat. The story is about human connection and sacrifice. Without giving too much away, the great lengths that Artyom goes for his wife Anna culminates in a very satisfying ending and is sure to tug at your heartstrings.

    I will say though, you will need a little patience with the game. It develops a little slowly in the beginning and the combat takes some getting used to but, given enough time, the storyline comes together really well and the characters end up being memorable.

    The combat is BRUTAL and stealth-driven. You will need to be on high alert every step of the way because ammo and work benches are limited. I cannot tell you the number of times I was at the edge of my seat, shouting and jumping in shock when a monster would attack out of nowhere. The horror element is very well done and lends itself to the gripping nature of the game.

    Oh and did I mention how incredibly good the graphics are? I played the PC enhanced version (highly recommend) which allows you to fully customize raytracing and DLSS settings. I cranked those settings to "extreme" thanks to the powerful RTX 3070 and boy do the environments really transform. Since this a post-apocalyptic game, the everything around you is almost always rusty, dilapidated and just plain dead or mutated. This is hands down the most graphically beautiful game I've played till date. If you're looking for a stealth-based post-apocalyptic game that you will have you at the edge of your seat throughout the entirety of the game, look no further! You will not be disappointed!

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I'm not gonna lie, I walked in with somewhat high expectations for this one and, well, they somewhat met the reality! Let me point out what, IMO, the game has against itself. Some characters are too "basic" with their lines, they pretty much always say something you're expecting them to say, or do something you were expecting them to do. Good characters but it was kind of a slow part of the game. On another note, the whole story behind the game wasn't as strong as the other two games. 2033 and Last Light blew your mind with everything going on behind it, this one was more layed back in that department. Not trying to throw shade at the game but it all went around two main objectives, find a place to live besides the Metro, and then find a cure for Anna's disease. Those are not bad objectives, but I've spent 20H on them and well, it gets to a point where you're only playing for the fun of it, not caring much for whats going on in the background. The ending wasn't as bad as a friend of mine said it was IMO, pretty basic but it was alright + cancels the chance of getting another one, that way it wont ruin the story. Now, besides that, the game was TONS of fun. Love running around doing stupid secondary missions like getting a teddy bear or a guitar, a lot of the stealth parts of exploring the map were pretty cool, a lot of diversity when it came to the map and you felt like you had a lot to do in the game all the time! The train idea was pretty good too! Gave a lot of dynamic to the whole gameplay through the game. Overall and to sum it up, even tho again, the story was nothing that special, the game had a lot going for itself: the open world style gameplay, variety of enemies, the train dynamic, different and really fun side missions, and a whole lot of fun added to it! I do believe they made this one not for the story (I dont think the Metro series needed this much added to its story), but to give an end to Artyom and the crews struggles (specialy Artyoms and Annas), and to just show off graphics and well, what the team could do which isn't bad, just not something you should go into for the story, but for everything around it! A defenitive must play if you liked the previous games, just, dont go into it thinking it's going to be a TLOU type of game, more like a Metro v. Dying Light type of game! :D

    Now, for the DLC it goes like this. The Two Colonels DLC was alright, didn't had much going for it tho. It adds a background to Kirill's dad in a reeeeally short story (went through it in about two hours). I dont feel like it is worth buying as it is, but if you find a good price or if you buy the Exodus Gold Edition or whatever it's called, then yes it is worth it and a fun little DLC! Sam's Story tho, thats another ball game. On it's around 6 hour campaign, IMO, this DLC is a short version of everything good the main Exodus game had going for itself, without a lot of the bad stuff I pointed out before. This time you can really connect with the characters, feel for them, not a lot of cringy/unnecessary lines or actions, the story still doesnt have a lot to do with the previous games but it doesnt feel blend like the main game, it feels amazing! Only bad thing I can say about it is that it doesnt FEEL like it has as much exploration room as the main game, even tho it really does! You just dont feel it as much because the story grips you more too it I think. Besides that, we have rich characters, a short but fun and wholesome storyline, an amazing plot, pretty fun side missions story, new weapons (IMO the best weapon in the game is in it, that Stallion, oof), and just a great time all around! The map is really dope too! Its just one area and not as big as the main game ones but it doesmt have to be! It feels about right. The DLC doesnt feel too big, too small, too rich, too poor, too exciting, too boring, its as close to perfection as any Metro experience has felt to this day IMO! 100% recommend to Metro fans and to action/adventure FPS fans in general, what an amazing little game this was!

    Beautiful looking game that lacks enemy variety and a good ending. It leaves an empty feeling after completion, like there was supposed to beBeautiful looking game that lacks enemy variety and a good ending. It leaves an empty feeling after completion, like there was supposed to be more - 22h is just not enough, and I know the world is semi-open but there isn't much room for exploration. But the real reason to buy is definitely the PS5 controller support on PC if you don't have a PS5 and want to experience the magic for yourself. Expand
