Metro Exodus – video game – reviews

Metro Exodus is a first-person shooter survival video game developed by 4A Games and published by Deep Silver in February 2019. It is the third instalment in the Metro video game series based on Dmitry Glukhovsky’s novels, following the events of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light.

Gameplay:

Set in the post-apocalyptic wasteland of the former Russian Federation, the player must cope with the new hazards and engage in combat against mutated creatures as well as hostile humans.

The player wields an arsenal of hand-made weaponry which can be customised through scavenging materials and a crafting system. The game features a mixture of linear levels and sandbox environments. It also includes a dynamic weather system, a day-night cycle, and environments that change along with the seasons as the story progresses.

The next DLC for Metro Exodus entitled The Two Colonels is expected this Fall. Following that, Sam’s Story DLC will be available for players in early 2020. Unlike the linear story-driven The Two Colonels, the second DLC will be a sandbox survival level based around Vladivostok.

Reviews:

“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 its wings. Metro shmetro, I hope they never go back.” Hooked Gamers

Metro Exodus is, in many ways, a pretty rote FPS attached to a setting that deserves much better. But when the Aurora’s brakes screech as it pulls into the next station, the excitement of what lies ahead always makes up for its shortcomings.” PC Gamer

” …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.” The Telegraph
