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.

A phenomenal modern shooter that really manages to feel immersive. Semi open and linear stages that feel lived in (or formerly lived in) are the centerpiece here. Exploring isn't often rewarding, but the weighty combat, gorgeous vista's and strong narratives make it worth doing anyways.
The ONLY thing to do first is to change the language to Russian. It's more immersive and the English dub is allegedly atrocious and game breaking.
Log posted in 2020: This is one of my favourite games of all time, its an amazing game just like the previous two, developed by great and passionate developers that put their hearts into creating this form of art.
The gameplay improves on what was already a great experience, and gives us even more variety when it comes to upgrading our armament aswell as our suit.
The core mechanics are great, the stealth mechanics are there and are good. Shooting feels satisfying and realistic aswell as fun.
The Story is the best part, the writing, given to us by Dmitriy Glukhovsky is amazing and im sure everyone will love it. You feel like you are a part of the Metro world, and build connections with every character, making victories aswell as losses feel as personal as possible.
I can't express how much I love this game and how much I recommend it, so if you feel like you want to give this franchise a try, please do, you have 3 great games to try, with a story to remember.
I respect the guts to evolve as a series. I loved exploring the hub worlds + the way the more scripted moments were interspersed. I wanted to love this and I think it's so close to greatness but fumbles in a couple of key areas. Due to the welcome innovations, I wouldn't call this a step backwards for the series at all, but there is certainly way more frustrating BS than the previous games. My playthrough was quite glitchy; the movement speed is fine for traversal, I appreciate the slower pace but the sluggish movements hamper combat; the load times are ridiculous on PS4, long conversations play out with everyone just standing still, etc. I also found myself missing the horror elements of the previous two games, though the ending of Exodus gets back into that territory.
I've reached the end of the Metro saga, and we finish off with the absolute peak of the series. Metro Exodus takes the atmosphere and worldbuilding of the previous 2 Metro games and combines it with a detailed and fascinating combination of open-world levels with linear setpieces. The gameplay in Metro Exodus doesn't feel like a continuation of the previous Metro games, but rather a spiritual successor to Far Cry 2. Guns can be meticulously customized but they must also be maintained. there are pros and cons to every decision the player makes from utilizing crafting materials to gun attachments to side quests and fighting enemies entirely. I played the game on hardcore and I wholeheartedly recommend it as it provided a level of tension that I found very satisfying. I also just want to put a spotlight on how much the 4A engine has improved from Redux; everything feels so much smoother and less janky, as well as the graphics on display are amazing overall. I played the enhanced version with RTX on and the game looked phenomenal. I look forward to the next project 4A has cooking, but with the war in Ukraine currently, that may be some time away. I send my regards to the Ukrainian team, and I'm gonna start harassing people to play the Metro games.
