    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.
  7. 30
    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.

    I should rate this game 1/10 - just because its too short !!!
    I finish it 20 minutes ago, and i wanna more !
    Stunning graphic, nice and smooth story, great gameplay - i didnt expect nothing more from it.
    I got two or three crashes during game. Its not a big deal.
    Definitly i wait for next metro.
    This game is my wet dream after Stalker series.
    This one i want finish too more times, one on highest difficult, and second time, when i get graphic card with raytraycing support.

    P.S. I don care its not on steam. People who dislike this game, because of Epic store - are disabled.
    This game like a shooter is briliant.

    Not quite a masterpiece but a good solid game.
    On the good side it's very atmospheric, has a half decent if predictable story, looks great and has more than good enough performance, it's really good fun exploring the interesting locations and is a lot more open than the previous games. Oh and no microtransactions whatsoever.
    I can play through this and just enjoy the whole experience without anything becoming irritating.

    On the bad side there isn't much to complain about but if I had to be picky, the enemies have AI right out of the early 2000's and the weapons are not all that satisfying to use. While nowhere near as bad, it does have a slight 'Fallout' feel to the shooting. Loot is also a little lacking in variety with 90% of the stuff you find being the same crafting materials. On the technical side it is heavily lacking in visual options. This is fine if you have a decent system but I feel if you were on a lower end machine and needed to make some tweaks you would be out of luck.

    Overall it's not a revolution, it's more Metro with better visuals and some more open ended environments. But for sure ignore the people giving it low scores because of business decisions - this is definitely worth playing.

    Sandbox non linear to me means a free choice of how and when you attempt a quest within the story, this game basically just constantly tells you what has to be done with no real choice or direction to travel otherwise, it feels like working a second job playing this game.
    Imagine the perfect cup of coffee, with just the right amount of cream, sugar if that's your thing, even a little bit of head from it being fresh pressed......now take that same good coffee and pour it into a cup with a gratuitous amount of creamer, im talking half a container of heavy cream, the coffee is now thick, tasting more of a tart cream than of actual coffee, sliding down the back of your throat like a cap full of Pepto-Bismol...….that to me is the Metro Exodus experience.
    Once I finish the game in full, I may change the review if the actual story can redeem the false advertising, but all I can say now is if the game keeps up the same theme, I might even uninstall before the end.
