Even some of the greatest video games have had a strange obsession with sewer and subway levels. They’re often grating and frustrating, especially when that’s where you spend most of your time. That was often the case in previous Metro series entries Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, where you were relegated to crawling around cramped, dingy tunnels snaking their way through Moscow, Russia.

With Metro Exodus, things have opened up immensely for an adventure that’s keen on stretching its legs and making its way outside for a bit. Post-apocalyptic Russia is a sight for sore eyes, strangely enough, and Metro Exodus capitalizes on wide open spaces to weave an intriguing narrative and challenging stealth-based adventure.

If you’re looking to escape the landscape of frenetic shooters and me-too battle royales, this is an excellent place to begin your journey.

Web-Systems Recommended Build

If you’re looking to get a system custom built around playing Metro Exodus or similarly demanding games on high graphics settings then we recommend the AMD Ryzen 5 1600x 6-core processor for smoothest gameplay as well as the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 for amazing graphical performance while also taking advantage of the raytracing and DLSS capabilities that Metro has.

Metro Exodus is a fantastic evolution for the series and one that moves the genre forward in several ways. It’s a standout from the competition, and one that reels you in with a memorable cast of characters, lush visuals, and challenges every step of the way.

Where Fallout has begun to lose its luster over the past few years, Metro is here to step in and take charge, taking players in a much more entertaining direction. With satisfying open world elements, a hefty 35+ hour quest to undertake, and plenty to discover around every corner, Metro Exodus is an excellent offering from 4A Games that deserves to go on your “must play” list.
