    The year is 2036.

    A quarter-century after nuclear war devastated the earth, a few thousand survivors still cling to existence beneath the ruins of Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro.

    They have struggled against the poisoned elements, fought mutated beasts and paranormal horrors, and suffered the flames of civil war.
    But now, as Artyom, you must flee the Metro and lead a band of Spartan Rangers on an incredible, continent-spanning journey across post-apocalyptic Russia in search of a new life in the East.

    Metro Exodus is an epic, story-driven first person shooter from 4A Games that blends deadly combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror in one of the most immersive game worlds ever created.

    Explore the Russian wilderness across vast, non-linear levels and follow a thrilling story-line that spans an entire year through spring, summer and autumn to the depths of nuclear winter.

    Inspired by the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky, Metro Exodus continues Artyom's story in the greatest Metro adventure yet.

    Features:

    * Embark on an incredible journey - board the Aurora, a heavily modified steam locomotive, and join a handful of survivors as they search for a new life in the East

    * Experience Sandbox Survival - a gripping story links together classic Metro gameplay with new huge, non-linear levels

    * A beautiful, hostile world - discover the post-apocalyptic Russian wilderness, brought to life with stunning day / night cycles and dynamic weather

    * Deadly combat and stealth scavenge and craft in the field to customize your arsenal of hand-made weaponry, and engage human and mutant foes in thrilling tactical combat

    * Your choices determine your comrades' fate - not all your companions will survive the journey; your decisions have consequence in a gripping storyline that offers massive re-playability

    * The ultimate in atmosphere and immersion - a flickering candle in the darkness; a ragged gasp as your gasmask frosts over; the howl of a mutant on the night wind - Metro will immerse and terrify you like no other game

    Metro Exodus on PS5 is one of the best survival wastelands to explore on the new console. With enhanced textures, stunning ray-tracing and global illumination, and immersive DualSense implementation, what is on offer here is an experience like no other. If you skipped it on PS4 or want to play again, there are ample enhancements here that make the Moscow Wasteland worth exploring all over again.

    One of PS4’s best and most underrated shooters pulls out all the stops on PS5. A technical marvel that goes full steam ahead on Sony’s new console. [Issue#4, p.76]

    Metro Exodus Complete Edition is the tightest and one of the most beautiful atmospheric and visual experiences you can afford. It is a truly artistic masterpiece that is helped by a solid story and excellent level design. It may be a bit tough and unfitting for certain audiences due to its slow gameplay and big surroundings that may take a long time to get around.

    Metro Exodus looks and plays better than ever before on consoles with this version. Exodus is a great game, and whether you haven’t played it yet or just want to replay it, the ray tracing and the DualSense’s features makes it worth your time.

    Despite looking pretty impressive the first time round, the visual upgrades alone to Metro Exodus make it a worth entry in the PS5’s catalogue. It might help to play the others first, but when this is the conclusion, it looks and plays too good not to. Just work on those trigger-pulling muscles for the haptic feedback.

    The end result is a vastly improved version of what is by far the best title set in Dmitry Glukhovsky’s apocalyptic Russia – even if the voice work, in English at least, is uneven to put it kindly.

    Is Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition worth picking up? It absolutely is for the price it’s being sold at. It’s a little over 30 quid/dollars and with the DLC and took me about 20-25 hours to get through with a young puppy in the house. It obviously includes the base game, but also comes with the story DLC that came out with the expansion pass. Both add new narrative beats to the game. But where Metro Exodus: Enhanced Edition really lets itself down is the execution of the world it is based in. Sure, crafting an arsenal to butcher hundreds of faceless bandits is fun. But Metro Exodus’ complex post-apocalyptic world has such a deep lore, begging to explored properly.

What a wonderful experience, a good story with fantastic gameplay. The methodical and deliberate movement was a nice change of pace. The 3D audio, haptics and adaptive triggers come together beautifully to create a wonderfully immersive experience. Best in the class in terms of next gen features Expand

    Great updated graphics. Ray tracing and 60fps clearly made this game awesome.

The sound is great, the graphicsThis is the most immersive experience I've had in a game. Recommended play on the PS5's dualsence controller. The sound is great, the graphics are incredible (possibly the best in world right now). The NPC AI is impressive, particually re: organic interactions (no button presses to talk and hear the same line over and over). Usually I skip all the stuff between action in games but I found myself exploring the train for about an hour between missions! The game feels like a more realistic Fallout 4 survival mode.

    I would give it a 10 if the Russian voice acting was better and they fixed the gamma issues. There's also a bug where your blood/damage overlay does not recognise increased field of views.

Ps5 version has awesome graphics, this game is so so so beautiful. The ray tracing is awesome. I've played some game on ps5 like Spider Man, Demons Souls and Ac Vanhala, but Metro Exodus is the most beautiful of them so far. The story is nice, the only defect is Artyom (main character) He doesn't speak during all the game, he look like a robot. It's a great flaw in the game in my opinion. However, the game is awsome. I cried in the end :| I'd play again. Maybe I play again it. I need to do the second end. PSN Edgard_86 on Ps5 Expand

    I get the idea, that game devs wanted the game to feel realistic, but come on! The constant dirt on camera is unbarable. Shooting feelsI get the idea, that game devs wanted the game to feel realistic, but come on! The constant dirt on camera is unbarable. Shooting feels slugish and your shots dont pack any punch. There is this enemy in heavy armor that is a bullet sponge. I was expexting exciting combat with monsters, but most of the time it's human enemies with stupid ai. The story is plain bad and voice acting is terrible. Wtf is this russiang accent thing? I can't understand half of the things characters are saying. Graphics are ok, but it looks blurry and uneven at times. Controls are chaoctic, there is a ton of unnecesary equipment. Right stick sensitivity feels too slow even on highest setting. Expand

I haventI was so excited to replay Metro exodus on ps5 but this must be joke. Actually it feels like im playing some kind of beta version. I havent experienced so many bugs yet in any other game and this game is here for 3 years lol. Ai is laughably retarded, graphics are decent but some textures look horrible. This was worst dissapointment of my life. 1 point for free nextgen upgrade. Expand
