If you haven’t heard of the Metro series, there’s a good chance you’ve been living beneath an irradiated-Russian rock – and the latest installment, Metro Exodus, pushes the series forward in ways that long time fans will be proud to play. Metro Exodus retains all the great elements on previous entries while throwing in a dash of welcomed mechanics and graphics that make it feel like a progressive step forward for the series.
For anyone new to the series, Metro Exodus is a lot like a Halo game mixed in with Fallout – excellent story-driven campaign levels in a mutated and (sometimes) open world setting.
You Need to Pace Yourself
The strongest element of the Metro series has always been the setting in which the games take place, and the pace at which events unfold.
Metro Exodus continues this trend. It keeps the disastrously mutated Russian landscapes and narrow underground pathways and lets players walk around for themselves, discovering and exploring in a way that never makes you feel as though your hand is being held, and letting fear and anxiety settle in.
A big part of Metro Exodus’s charm is how it steps away from trendy shooter style gameplay. Anyone coming to this game looking for Call of Duty will be disappointed. Metro does not prioritize quick and gleeful combat. The game’s combat is built on slow burning tense action – where you never have a lot of gun ammunition, and every shot is powerful and snappy. The gun physics in Metro Exodus make every shot feel real and rewarding.
It is difficult to truly explain the tension built into Metro Exodus unless you have played it for yourself, but new players should expect a couple jump scares, a whole lot of gun-driven anxiety, and a revolutionary gaming experience.
In Soviet Russia…
Every great game requires a great visual experience and Metro Exodus is no exception. Exploring the wide open biomes and deep dingy undergrounds were a treat from start to finish thanks to the beautiful 4A Engine used by 4A Games to create the game. When I wasn’t soaking in the sights, I was relaxing on the Aurora – the train that transports you and other survivors from location to location. The Aurora acts like a ‘hub’ or ‘home world’ in between rampages across the Russian settings. It’s a place to speak with other characters, rest and reload, and blow the train horn far as the eye can see.
While the game is already beautiful, 4A Games has also announced a graphical overhaul to Metro Exodus coming this year, bringing improved textures and Ray Tracing. This update will be free for all Metro Exodus owners on PC, Xbox Series X, and PS5.
Metro Exodus does something that most modern games shy away from nowadays. Instead of embracing quick simple shooting, a dead setting, and an empty story, Metro builds a deeply troubled world and shoves you into the middle of its problems. The beautifully horrific Russian setting will pull you in, and the perfected slow burn gunplay will keep you playing. With the exception of a few bugs, Metro Exodus will entirely convince you of its exceptional quality and pacing.
