The journey through the Metro is more than worth the price of admission, plus the visuals are great at showcasing the new hardware. I am really looking forward to what 4A Games has in store next.

Metro Redux revitalizes the original Metro 2033 in a smart way, offering a choice between the original experience and something more welcoming to newcomers. With the inclusion of Last Light, this is a two-hit punch of some damn fine FPS bleakness.

All in all, whether you're new to the franchise or not, the abandoned underground has never looked this inviting.

When all is said and done, this is an awesome collection and one that any gamer should check out. After playing through both of these all week long, it makes the wait for another installment just that little bit harder.

Metro Redux is the perfect entry point for series newcomers as it combines two of the best shooters in recent times in a remastered collection. In addition, series fans are in for a huge treat with the remastered Metro 2033 and Last Light games for replaying their favorite moments with improved gameplay and visuals. Metro Redux is far more than a high definition update, it's a truly remastered and definitive experience.

Metro Redux is yet another triumphant port for the Nintendo Switch, presenting a duo of brilliant survival horror shooters to an audience who might have never experienced them before. While they've been burdened with noticeable visual compromises, they still look and perform competently enough that you'll hardly notice the difference.

Overall, both Metro 2033 Redux and Metro Last Light Redux are great shooters that you should certainly play if you're a fan of the genre. While almost nothing about these titles is game-changing, the content they provide is still worth the price of admission. Most of the few gripes I have become non-issues once you figure out how to work around them, and those that remain aren't too disastrous. So, what are you waiting for? Grab your ticket and come along for the ride!

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.

This is the truer definition of a mature title. This is what happens when first-person shooters strive to be more than a vulgar display of power.

Overall my time with Metro Redux was enjoyable. Metro 2033 does feel like it was the first attempt at creating something special, and it almost got there. Metro Last Light is easily the full realization of the story and is an overall more enjoyable experience. But, since both titles are included in this bundle, players will be able to get the full picture from beginning to end with enough content and replay value to be worth the asking price and then some.

You're getting two pretty, current-gen titles for less than the price of one new game, despite there being some fundamental gameplay issues that were never addressed during this apocalyptic remix.

Metro Redux sets the bar high for what a HD remaster should be – not only a visual upgrade, but a gameplay touch up as well. Metro 2033 benefits the most from this, and owners of Last Light will have a tough time finding many improvements. Still, if you're yet to visit the bleak world of the Moscow underground, there hasn't been a better time.

Like The Last of Us Remastered, Metro Redux argues the case for seeing games "redone" for a new generation of consoles. The visuals are unbeatable, the gameplay well balanced, the extra modes appreciatively accepted and the challenge second to none when it comes to playing in Survival and/or Ranger Modes. While some new content would've been appreciated here, what's included in the $50 package is more than enough value. It's time to head back to Russia…

The Metro games deserve a second shot at stardom, and with the sequel polished and the original considerably enhanced, they're primed to make the most of it. The first game can seem dated or awkward, but its mood, atmosphere and survival horror game mechanics make for a very distinctive FPS. The second loses some of the creeping tension, but makes up for it with exceptional stealth-tinged combat. Take them together and you get a bargain bundle of post-apocalyptic dread.
