Far from just another map-clearing game, Metro's first above-ground outing is an atmospheric, characterful voyage across a ruined Russia.

Like its predecessors it is dark, depressing and engaging, a game where you never feel comfortable. But unlike its predecessors, this feels like a complete package, not a promising game let down by technical issues. This is the best Metro has ever been and is one of the best FPS adventures that money can buy. Do not miss it.

Do you like a game whose combat and discovery mechanics are entirely divorced from stop-and-wait delivery of lengthy, meandering dialogue, always spoken by over-eager actors with thick Eastern European accents? If so, you're in for some genuinely likable moments of character development; they're just firmly nestled in the kinds of overlong stories that might have you saying "get on with it, man" after a while. The spoilable plot beats, on the other hand, feel like fine B-movie cheese. Sometimes, these are full of scare-quote "important" messages freighted with fromage. (And sometimes filled with comically intense evil, too.)

The fact that Metro Exodus also works for me as a newcomer to the Metro series and that I can now comprehend the often quoted strengths of the shooter cannot be denied. The balance between survival-, shooter- and stealth-gameplay, exploring the extensive areas and returning to narrow dungeons and tunnels, which are garnished with horror elements, is well done. I also liked the wonderfully refreshing reduction to the bare essentials in terms of HUD, markers and other ballast very much and intensified the immersion immensely. In the end, Metro Exodus entertained me well for about 20 hours, but didn't completely convince me. Nevertheless, the experience is worth a recommendation to me and Metro fans will probably take it anyway, although 4A Games has not only remained true to its strengths, but also to its weaknesses.

Exodus isn’t content to just be one kind of first-person shooter. After an open first half focused on survival and exploration, the latter portion plays much more like its linear predecessors, to mixed results. The final two of Exodus’ four major locations suffer from their own particular issues, as well as more exasperating versions of issues that pop up all throughout the rest of the game.

If Exodus is the future of the series then sign me up for more. If it's the future of single player games, then sign me up doubly-so since there's not a single scrap of online, micro-transaction, or live service bs in here. 4A have really done me proud with this one. Perhaps I'm easily pleased or I can ignore certain things - not many bugs came up and one graphical glitch happened on the Volga level which has since vanished after a patch. Apart from that, the game is fantastic, and I'm having a blast playing on the harder difficulty now to push myself and my skills even further. I love Metro's world, the design, the aesthetic, and the whole package in general - Exodus takes everything I love about it and amps it up to the next level for me.

Metro Exodus is a flawed game, but this doesn’t hold it back from being a stellar narrative-driven experience. It’s hard to express what it’s like to play a shooter so invested in its atmosphere and immersing the player in its world. 4A Games have proven yet again that they’re amoung the best of the best at making these kinds of games. Metro Exodus is an engaging journey from start to finish, a tense survival based shooter that knows what it does well and does not hold back to ensure you know that it does them well. If you’ve never played a Metro title, I’d recommend starting with 2033, as narrative is a core part of the series, but Exodus is a perfectly fine place to start if it interests you, and long-time fans will be thoroughly pleased with how it’s turned out.

Quite simply, Metro Exodus is the perfect way to round off this trilogy, and a testament to the powerful evolution that a gaming franchise can make. The open world offers a whole new perspective from which to enjoy Artom's tale. Whilst there are some niggly issues with AI, and maybe an overuse of bespoke animations, the fact remains that it is hard to think of a better example of how to design a single-player survival adventure. Visually stunning and packed with audio detail, this is something that should be experienced by any PC gamer.

Being perfectly honest, after the last two Metro games, not only is this one refreshing change, one that was needed. The open world, the crafting, and the large assortment of NPCs that you'll encounter during the game. The Metro's closed walls and need for something more gave way to all of this. Sure, we're finally on the outside, yet the hellish world that you've come to know doesn't take a backseat. Instead, we're just introduced to more of it. There's a whole new world to explore and experience, all while this new setting does the game good. Now we just need to know which ending is canon this time around. If this is the future of the series, I can't wait to see what 4A Games does next.

Metro Exodus is an incredibly atmospheric, engaging and compelling shooter that places an onus on the player to think on their feet, thanks to stringent limitations on ammo, supplies and the resources required to make more. Enhancing this is a world that is almost dead set against you. From other survivors who are more likely to kill you than talk to you, mutant creatures and ghouls that want nothing more than to feast on you and the hazards of the environment, it's a game that wants you on the edge of your seat. It masters this with ease. From tight gunplay to well-developed stealth mechanics, the game offers variety within the confines of its own rules. The only downsides are average-at-best voice acting and the game ignoring its own stealth leanings to force combat with incredibly difficult bosses. All in all, Metro Exodus is a fantastic game that you'd be worse off for missing out.

Metro on the surface ... is that still metro? Of course, after all, it is called Metro Exodus (lt excerpt). I have not played such a good story shooter for a long time. In the previous parts you were only allowed to surface for a short time, but in Exodus we leave the ground and explore the irradiated surface of Russia. Of course, Russia is not yet cleared of radiation, but here and there it is less strong, which makes the area no less dangerous. Bandits, mutants, demons ... evil has many names and forms. But what makes Metro so special? On the one hand, the story, which has taken me quite a bit towards the end, the survival aspect, that one must always keep an eye on filters, medicine packs and ammunition, some thrills in the shafts of the Metro, the darkness, a little bit of horror, not too much, just right. This mix makes Metro really special. And what you must not forget, karma. The game remembers whether we are peacefully coping with the game, or riveting everything that comes our way, and this also has an effect on the end, which in turn increases the counter-value. I went quite neutral to Metro Exodus and I'm really excited!

Metro Exodus is exactly the game that creators promised and its more open environment and ambitious narrative, taking place over a longer period of time, will fully satisfy all Metro fans.

Is Metro Exodus good? Definitely. Was it worth the long wait? Without a doubt. Should you buy it? If you're a fan, then just stop reading go play it. If not, go through previous games which are enjoyable experiences themselves and are cheap on every console. If you liked them, then I would suggest you join Artyom's journey of making his dream come true

Metro Exodus bets big on interpersonal relationships and world building, something that the other two games in the series lacked badly. Its more mundane approach on how Artyom's crew perceives the post-apocalyptic landscapes they explore in their search for the promise land is what makes Metro Exodus a great game.

Metro Exodus is the Metro that you were expecting to see. It's the same S.T.A.L.K.E.R that you've been waiting to see for years. Up until now Resident Evil 2 and Metro Exodus are the best games that I have experienced in 2019. I like to recommend this game to you 100% but not everyone will be able to deal with its controls and hardcore difficulty. This is enough to turn Metro Exodus from a popular masterpiece to a cult game that only a select few will enjoy.

Metro: Exodus is the proper result of the hard work made by Glukhovsky together with the developing team 4A Games. Even if many features have been introduced in this title, compared to the previous games, the spirit of the saga is still intact, but actually those updates enhance the atmosphere of danger, worry and uncertainty that Artyom has to face in this new adventure. The game is great under many aspects: captivating plot, gameplay, soundtrack and an incredible graphic. Though, few bugs, tedious fights, and a controversial dubbing, make the experience far from being flawless. In the end, Metro: Exodus is a great game suggested to all the fan of the series, but also to who approach to the game for the first time.

Metro Exodus is best when it follows the classic Metro formula, painting the world with tension as you dive deeper into the darkness of the world. While the game does suffer with a bit of an identity crisis at times, at the end of it all, the tension and fear that is peppered throughout more than makes the journey worth the trouble as players get their first look at a much bigger world and the dangers that lie within it.

Metro Exodus is an entertaining post-apocalyptic shooter that isn't afraid to take chances with the series' formula. There are still occasional jump scares, resources are scarce, and often times humans are your worst enemy. The addition of large, open levels really freed up 4A Games to make a world all the more detailed and believable. A few technical issues hold the game back a bit, but they are by no means a deal breaker. Fans of the Metro series shouldn't hesitate to pick up Metro Exodus at launch, and fans of survival horror should also find plenty to like here.

Much like the previous games in the franchise, Metro Exodus isn’t perfect. Yet, despite that fact, this threequel’s bold decision to take its world in a new direction means that its glaring positives outweigh its lack of refinement. The gameplay is solid, the visuals are terrific and Metro Exodus’s decision to try new, courageous gameplay mechanics makes it a thrill to play, overall, meaning that this is not only a fitting culmination to Artyom’s story, but also 4A’s studio-defining work on the franchise as well.

Thanks to its meaty crafting and gun customization, a beautiful character-driven story focused more on humans than the fantastical, and a world built around fear, desolation, and tension, Exodus will definitely be one of 2019's most talked about games by the end of the year.

Each sequel builds on the foundation that its predecessors built yet can't quite shake some of the flaws that have always held them back a bit. Many of the issues found in 2033 and Last Light have been addressed. However, Metro Exodus still finds a way, especially as the game hits the third act, to remind us of many of the problems we've always had with this franchise.

As the game progresses further many of Metro Exodus’s problems begin to alleviate themselves as the experience becomes more defined. This allows for the game’s unique blend of gameplay and narrative storytelling in a horrific environment to shine through. While most titles in the horror genre focus on jump scares and other classic tropes, Metro Exodus allows the environment of post-apocalyptic Russia to do all the work. Players who take the time to experience what this new entry into the Metro series has to offer will no doubt witness one of the greatest narrative survival horror experiences present within a video game.

Metro Exodus is an absolutely solid, all-around experience. Although the change from indoor to outdoor scenery is striking at first, it allows the gameplay to breathe and feel different from previous titles. The signature makeshift guns are paired well with the new crafting ability, and their lack of stopping power makes firefights meaningful and stealth sections tense. There are still issues here and there, and the presentation could be tighter, but this is a worthy sequel to a game that has earned its cult status throughout the years.

Metro Exodus emerges from the underground to explore a world far more colorful than the Moscow railways. Exodus does a fine job of injecting larger spaces with familiar gameplay, even if the two don’t always compliment each other. The refocused survival aspects are welcome additions and add to the hopelessness of the post-apocalyptic setting. The game goes off the rails a bit due to abundant technical issues and restrictive movement that reveal the lack of AAA polish. Even with its lesser parts, Metro Exodus takes the franchise forward with an experience worth seeing through to the end.
