Even if you played the original releases, Metro Redux is still an attractive proposition. The improvements to 2033 are substantial, while the more minor tweaks to Last Light simply refine a fantastic experience. In one package, these games together offer a huge amount of gameplay and one of the most arresting game-worlds you'll ever see in a shooter. If, on the other hand, you've never delved into Glukhovsky's subterranean nightmare, Redux is more than worth the asking price.
Console gamers will see big improvements in Redux compared to the originals, making this one of the best remakes we've seen.
If you didn't think much of the games initially, there may not be enough in Redux that will change your mind.

Metro Redux combines two of the most uniquely harrowing first-person shooters onto one disc, and applies a whole mess of graphical and gameplay improvements that hit far more than they miss.

Metro Redux for Nintendo Switch is not ideal, but a good port of a very non-trivial shooter with a lot of interesting ideas and a careful approach to small details. Thanks to Switch, you can plunge into the sticky atmosphere of the catacombs of the Moscow metro in any place and at any time.

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.
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.
Although both games are thematically grim at times, we thoroughly recommend Metro Redux to both series newcomers and fans of the original titles.
