    In 2013 the world was devastated by an apocalyptic event, annihilating almost all mankind and turning the earth’s surface into a poisonous wasteland. A handful of survivors took refuge in the depths of the Moscow underground, and human civilization entered a new Dark Age.

    The year is 2033. An entire generation has been born and raised underground, and their besieged Metro Station-Cities struggle for survival, with each other, and the mutant horrors that await outside.

    You are Artyom, born in the last days before the fire, but raised underground. Having never ventured beyond the city limits, one fateful event sparks a desperate mission to the heart of the Metro system, to warn the remnants of mankind of a terrible impending threat.

    But will they even listen? Rather than stand united, the factions of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the ultimate power, a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever.

    Including the epic single-player campaigns of both Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, Metro Redux takes you on a journey from the forgotten catacombs beneath the subway to the desolate wastelands above, where your actions will determine the fate of mankind.

    Metro Redux is the ultimate double game collection, including the definitive versions of both Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, now available on Nintendo Switch™

    Newcomers to the series will get the chance to experience two of the finest story-driven shooters of all time in one vast package; an epic adventure combining gripping survival horror, exploration and tactical combat and stealth.

    Those who favoured the more survival-horror oriented gameplay of ‘Metro 2033’ can play both campaigns in the ‘Survival’ Play-Style, a fraught, slow burn fight for survival. Those who enjoyed the more action-oriented gameplay of ‘Metro: Last Light’ can try the ‘Spartan’ Play-Style, providing Artyom with a powerful set of combat skills.

    With the legendary Ranger Mode included to offer an extra layer of challenge and immersion, and all previous released DLC, Metro Redux offers 50+ hours of AAA FPS gameplay for an incredible price.

    The first-person survival horror aspect of the game doesn’t suffer at all on the Switch. From the visuals, audio, and inputs, everything feels and plays as if the series was made for the console. In fact, it’s a testament that the Switch is more than the sum of its parts. Though there is a loss of some visual fidelity, and some sacrifice made while playing in handheld mode that comes in the form of battery life, Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light feel at home on this hybrid console.

    Metro Redux is a top-notch first-person survival horror package that delivers countless hours of thrilling stealth combat all wrapped up in a superb story. These are two of the most atmospheric games you'll likely play set in a beautifully detailed depiction of post-apocalyptic Russia. 4A Games has delivered a port that stands shoulder to shoulder with Alien: Isolation as the very best we've seen on Switch so far – an almost flawless experience which should absolutely be right at the top of any FPS or survival horror fan's must-buy list. This is essential stuff.

    Regardless of your feelings on the first two Metro games—which are quite good in their own right—this is a masterful portable collection handled with an expert hand by the games' original developers.

    We couldn’t have asked for better versions on Switch. Both games still hold up very well, and from a technical point of view they look incredible on Nintendo’s console.

    Well done 4A Games: both Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light (Redux version) are now perfectly enjoyable on the little-big Nintendo console.

    This is a wonderful port that has a lot going for it, but it’s still probably the worst version of the game unless you're determined to play in Handheld Mode despite the lighting issues that come with doing so, or you really love gyro controls. You'll still have a great time with the conversion, and I commend 4A games for translating these games so well, but you will be making a trade-off. If the Switch is your only option to play Metro Redux, though, I can recommend conversion without hesitation. There's nothing else quite like it on the system.

    While the games themselves are fairly solid, nothing about them stands out quite enough to warrant purchasing them again unless you are a die hard fan of the franchise. Given that Metro Exodus only released last year and follows as a direct sequel to Last Light, your money might be better spent jumping into the latest entry in the series than revisiting something 10 years old.

    Metro 2033 et Metro Last Night font partis des meilleurs FPS solos narratifs de ces dernières années. Ce portage Switch s’adressera principalement à ceux qui ne connaissent pas la série mais même pour ceux qui ont déjà eu le plaisir d’y jouer sur consoles de salon, la possibilité d’y jouer sur Switch en mode nomade est un ajout non négligeable. Pour moins de 40 euros, vous aurez les deux versions définitives de chaque jeux, avec tous les DLC. 2 excellents jeux pour un très bon portage!

    I just finished beating Metro Redux on Ranger difficulty and wanted to give some honest feedback. It is unfortunately more style thanI just finished beating Metro Redux on Ranger difficulty and wanted to give some honest feedback. It is unfortunately more style than substance and comes off as a disjointed mess, trying to be too many things at once but ultimately failing at most. It advertised itself as a post apocalyptic survival fps, where rationing resources, sound tactics and a sharp mind would see you succeed, but this was not the case. I want to like it, it should be something that I do like, but sadly it just ended up pissing me off too many times that I was glad it was finally over in the end.

    The game simply loves to fight itself when it comes to its vision. On the one hand it wants you to have the impression that resource management and maintaining a low profile are keys to success, while at the same time having massive fire fights with invulnerable companions that serve as bullet sponges with unlimited ammo. To make it worse, you actually matter very little when resolving these scenarios, while makes the idea of simply hiding in a corner and waiting out the storm very tempting, even though you get to see everyone else have a blast running around like Rambo.

    The gas masks are also an interesting idea that is largely poorly executed. Don't put Easter eggs in a game, safes etc. if you are creating a mechanic which incentivizes you to move efficiently through a map. It just ends up annoying the gamer more than anything. Also for lore it is poorly executed as there is no sense of urgency or tension with this resource management. People are having long cut scenes talking bs, while you are burning your resources away. Apparently everyone else can hang out on the surface as long as they like while you get 10 minutes if youre lucky.

    Even typing this out this game pisses me off. I wanted to be fair and gave it a 6 though due to its interesting theme, decent fps, and the realization that with a few tweaks and adjustments, they could actually have a very solid foundation for a series. As it stands I am glad to be moving on however...
