    Having moved the action away from the dark tunnels of Moscow's underground onto a train, going into the unknown and forced to make stops throughout the journey, Metro Exodus' authors created a memorable interactive adventure consisting of happiness from discovering love and grief from irreplacebale loss, hope of better future and despair from understanding the truth. On top of that one might call Exodus a distorting mirror that reveals the most horrible sins of mysterious Russian soul: heresy and servilism.

    The best post-apocalyptic survival game of the generation, that innovates in terms of both its varied gameplay mechanics and its incisive storytelling.

    Metro Exodus opens up a world held closed by its predecessors. This time, it's up to our well known hero Artyom to explore the unexplored regions of Mother Russia, in all of its open world glory. So sit back and enjoy the unique experience, visual wonders and darkest secrets of the beloved Metro universe.

    It still has some of the technical issues we’ve seen from 4A Games before, but Metro Exodus stands as a terrific post-apocalyptic shooter that expands on the series’ customization options and environments without ignoring its survival roots. 4A Games remains committed to turning author Dmitry Glukhovsky’s stories into (barely) living and breathing worlds, offering brief glimpses of hope in an otherwise depressing and occasionally nihilistic tale. Exodus establishes Metro as one of the great narrative-focused shooters, and it proves that exciting action doesn’t have to come at detriment to story.

    Metro Exodus is an entertaining post-apocalyptic shooter that isn’t afraid to take chances with the series’ formula.

    Metro Exodus feels like a solid simulacrum of someone else trying to make a Fallout game, for all the benefits and drawbacks that entails. Its maps are fun to explore, and effort has been put into making the side areas rewarding in both narrative expansion and bonus upgrades to your gear. That said, Exodus doesn’t have the same handle on ambient storytelling and visual interest to drive you to investigate every corner of the map.
  7. 60
    While Metro Exodus doesn’t do anything wrong as a blockbuster shooter, where the original titles were original and refreshing, Exodus is yet another in a ever-deepening pile, and the Metro franchise deserved better than to be exhausting.

    Best post apocalyptic shooter game of the decade. Storyline could be a way better. But graphics and gameplay is awesome and frightening.

I feel like much of the criticism from users stems from the speed of gameplay or difficulty. These are two of the reasons this is such a standout title for me. I have been playing on ranger hardcore difficulty and it seems to be one of the only shooters i have ever played that is optimized around the max difficulty. For me, this makes the game punishing but fair. While the challenge is immense, i never felt like it was insurmountable. I compare this to the CoD games where when the difficulty is cranked up, it is clear that no one was meant to play it in that manner. Instead of increasing AI intelligence or line of sight, the developers give every NPC perfect accuracy and limitless grenades. Another reason why i love the game how it provides an incentive for well thought out and deliberate decision making. For example, because weapon quality affects performance, and the cleaning process is a relatively resource heavy process, i make a point to avoid terrain that would make my weapons more dirty. The decision making is extended to the crafting process when you must decide between making, gas masks, air filters, or more ammo. I could go on and on for hours but i was overall extremely impressed.

    Although i did give the game a 10/10 there were a couple of things that have annoyed me. The biggest problems have been invisible walls that block both movement and bullets, and NPCs talking over each other. For a game that tries so hard to make you love the NPCs, it can be hard to understand their dialogue as they are barely audible over other NPCs.

    Same as the books the quality of each game is lower and lower. Unfortunatelly this one is really terribly. Game mechanics are fine, graphicsSame as the books the quality of each game is lower and lower. Unfortunatelly this one is really terribly. Game mechanics are fine, graphics and immersion are good as well, ale but I have probably never seen so shallow story line like here.
    Pathetic dialogs, obvious plot... It was real missery to go trouh the whole game... Nevermore and I really regret buying the game. Not because the money but becaus it ruined great world it built with first two parts.

    Being a huge Metro fan, Exodus was a great disappointment. Metro should have never been an open world game, the developers **** everything up.Being a huge Metro fan, Exodus was a great disappointment. Metro should have never been an open world game, the developers **** everything up. The graphic hasn't been improved at all since the last Metro games, the loading screens are extremely long, the game freezes now and then. The story is shallow, the dialogues are long and superficial, the movements are heavy-handed and exploration is boring. Unquestionably, the worse game I've ever played. Expand
