Jokey heading aside, after spending ample time across post-apocalyptic Russia in the wonderful and often brilliant Metro Exodus, we're finally ready to share our review. Spoiler alert, it's amazing. Surprisingly so, catching us off guard with with its masterful blend of styles, and stunning visuals.
Metro Exodus is a genuine surprise for many reasons, most of which come down to it nailing challenging and strategic combat, stealth infiltrations, creepy survival horror and wide-open exploration and discovery. Although cliché it is one of those games that although we’d love nothing more than to list and talk about all the cool moments, story beats, and surprising encounters - doing so would spoil, well, the surprise. The fact that Metro Exodus manages to strike that delicate balance between shooter styles, means that it slowly but surely ends up feeling like its own thing. That said, for the quick and obligatory surface level comparison – it’s a dash of Fallout, a sprinkle of BioShock, some Dishonored for flavour and Thief to darken the edges.
