Suitably atmospheric music that's used sparingly, and plenty of subtle noises to keep you on your toes while you're navigating Metro Exodus' winding tunnels and more open spaces. The voice acting could be better, however. Maybe play it in Russian.
A fantastic looking game with remarkable lighting and some jaw-dropping vistas, Metro Exodus nonetheless has its fair share of minor graphical bugs, but minor they are and don't detract from the overall visual majesty. Characters aren't all that expressive, though.
Exodus is a fine shooter, laced with neat survival mechanics including crafting and hoarding materials. Handling stealth and full-on gunslinging combat equally well, Metro is superb, tension-filled fun. Kudos to 4A Games for managing to map so much to the humble controller too.
A larger game in scope and size than its predecessors, Metro Exodus juggles both condensed open-world spaces and claustrophobic environments with aplomb, while delivering a polished gameplay experience at its heart. Minor glitches don't spoil the party, although I experienced instances of crashing and freezing when playing off an external HDD.
Encouraging you to explore beyond the designated path, Metro's list is nice and varied, offering a range of different challenges alongside the usual 'kill X number of mutants' or 'kill X number of humans'. Mixing up your weapons is also essential. A solid list that is nonetheless a bit on the familiar side.
