A gorgeous and immersive first-person survival game that takes all the best the series has had to offer, and runs with it. The slow pace can take a little getting used to, but that visceral heft to the game really helps to place you in its world. The open world is a nice addition, but the game still plays at its best in its claustrophobic smaller areas. If you’re seeking a palette cleanser after years of breakneck shooters, Metro Exodus is a great choice.
As the tumbleweed drifts past you in the Caspian Sea and you’re spoonfed yet more information about a dastardly dictator, you realize that sometimes less is more; that the real genius of Half-Life, a game Metro Exodus so badly wants to be, is that Valve showed restraint, leaving their fiction shrouded in mystery, a million things left unsaid. Sadly, such restraint takes bravery and if anything, for all its scope and spectacle, Exodus is guilty of playing it safe.
Features like individual volume sliders for voices and music are missing, the general button layout is awkward, and button presses don’t always respond as I’d expect. Mix that in with the bugs, and we have a package that has the structure for excellence but was set loose on the world too soon. In my heart, I have strong feelings for Exodus, but I’ll forever be haunted by how outstanding a few more layers of polish could’ve made it.
