    When can I trade in?

    This is the first of these games I have played. I saw the trailers, watched gameplay and read about it and it seemed really interesting. After playing for a few hours I was really left feeling like the game was incomplete. It goes beyond the few times that it glitched and I had to reload a previous save for the story to advance. The controls are clunky to say the least. You move incredibly slow, get caught up on bushes, logs and rocks and let’s not talk about the rowboat. The shooting mechanics are also very poor. Auto aim is nice when it actually works. Mostly you are shooting at air and the throwing knives have a tendency to never land unless you are standing within melee range. Speaking of melee attacks, they basically don’texist in this game. Although the graphics are nice at first glance when you start to move around more they end up being very choppy and for trying to create an ultra realistic experience (literally have to wipe your mask off when it rains) when it comes to executing people or shooting point blank with the shotgun there is almost no gore. Just a blood splatter and a fully intact body left laying on the ground with no evidence of damage. Lastly I could not find any of the story very interesting. Maybe it’s because I never played the other ones but every time they have a meeting and talk about missions or events it drags on and I find myself looking for a skip button.

    Metro 3rd installment

    Metro Exodus is a first person shooter and the 3rd game in the Metro series (2033 & Last Light). Exodus takes our main character out of the Moscow underground and above, into the world. In this game there is a more open world, non linear feel to the adventure. *minor spoilers You will travel by rail through Russia's country side. Taking you to 3 different open world maps along the way. The game play is very good and if you like Metro you will enjoy this one as well. I have played all 3 Metro games on XBox and this is one of the best. Scavenging is still a must as resources and ammo are in short supply. The variety that the open world gives is a much more free experience. You no longer are forced to fight everything in your path, as there are many paths and options to each target. The radiation and mask/filter use are a bit toned down compared to previous titles, which I actually was thankful for. Pros-The atmosphere and gameplay are very much enjoyable. Cons-Load times are a bit rough and save points can be a bit challenging. Overall a great game and would recommend to Metro fans or anyone who enjoys non-twitch shooters.

    From the Underground to the Surface

    Metro Exodus takes you out of the confined corridors of the Metro & lets you explore vast dangerous landscapes full of radiation, dangerous creatures, bandits, and even cannibals. Every inch of the world is full of rich detail that fully immerses you in these large environments. While the game isn't open world per se, there are multiple large maps that are completely open to the player to complete story missions, side missions, find collectibles, etc., however they wish. You're not guided down a narrow path, but the journey is completely up to you as to how you wish to complete it. In addition, the choices that you make, not all of which are entirely predictable, will determine the ending to the game. While Metro Exodus isn't completely flawless, as I have had a few crashes on Xbox One X, and the aiming feels off at first -- though you do get used to it, I feel that Metro Exodus is still an absolute masterpiece. The amount of detailed crammed into every inch of this world, into every conversation & interaction, etc., is beyond anything else that I've played this year.

    Great Addition to a Great Series

    The latest addition to the Metro series meets all expectations and brings new excitement to the game series. The sandbox style approach to the game is quite different from previous installments, but it works and brings a whole new experience to what was already a thrilling, and terrifying story. Anyone into the series will love the game, anyone looking to try a new series will enjoy it as well. The only hiccups are some new UI/Map interface additions that were not present in other games and can make things a bit confusing during gameplay. Other than that, the story moves a good pace and presents the player with new challenges they were not able to experience in the previous two games.

    This was a bummer for me. I anxiously waited for this game because it looked incredible. Now its by no means a bad game AT ALL. I can see why people would love it. It just didnt do it for me. The shooting and overall mechanics just didnt feel great to me. I would die way to easily not knowing who shot me. This is personal opinion tho. Others praise the gunplay etc etc. I LOVE single player fps so I had high hopes. I felt exactly the same after playing wolfenstein the new order. On paper I thought id love it but for some reason the game play wasn't fun for me. To each there own! Id say unless your a big fan wait for a sale. For 20-40 its a good buy.

    Unplayable - Nonstop Freezes. Avoid like plague

    Bought the game. Physical Disc. Installed XBOX one X. Game is unplayable. Freezes at random points during game play. The game doesn't crash where I am booted back to the initial startup screen. The XBOX doesn't shut off from overheating. It just freezes. I can still access XBOX menu etc. If I restart the game sometimes I can "play" further than the last freeze, sometimes I can't. Avoid this game like the plague, especially if you have an XBOX one X. There is buggy code and there hasn't been any fixes for this. Read other reviews - This is fairly common. Google -> metro exodus xbox one freezing.

    I've been thoroughly enjoying this game. I played Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light a few years ago, so I was super pumped when they announced Metro Exodus. I like it better than the first two, and that's saying a lot, because I really enjoyed them! I like the sandbox style of this game and it's cool that the majority of it is not in the metro. It just sets it apart from the other two. There's a few issues here and there (the biggest of which is getting hung up on something when moving around, particularly when sneaking) but the good out-weighs the bad in my opinion.

    So far, I've been quite impressed with this game. Almost everything has been extremely enjoyable. The story and characters definitely keep you wanting to continue. The graphics are amazing. Gameplay is fun. I have been experiencing a large amount of freezing and crashes though. I'm playing on an Xbox One X and that seems to be a common issue for that particular console. Unfortunate, of course, but I'm expecting them to fix this with a future update so I'm not going to bash what is otherwise a fantastic game. Yet, at least. I am greatly enjoying it so far, when able to play.

    Where to start... graphics are stunning. The start of the game is breath taking on 4k xbox one x graphics, the water droplets rolling down the screen / your radiation mask. The scenery and surroundings are just amazing looking! Blown away by the game since it came out on xbox 360 I have always been a fan of these games and I knew I wouldnt be disappointed. This game takes the metro series to a whole new level with 4k involved. Story line is amazing along with every other aspect of the game no complaints so far...

    I’ve played the 2 previous metro games and this one is still as good. Besides the graphics being one of the cleanest in the series the gameplay is a little slow. Movement is slow and combat is slow. I thought it could be faster when aiming and shooting multiple enemies. Just seems a little off. Once you get use to the pace of the game it’s a great adventure with more gameplay than the previous games.

    Metro Evolved

    This game is truly a huge evolution for the series. This is a stunning story driven survival FPS. It incorporates the previous survival gameplay elements with sandbox open world gameplay for a truly refreshing take on the series. Graphically one of the best games on the market, and it plays as good as it looks. A must play, even if you've never played a Metro game before.

    I have to say I really enjoyed my time with Metro: Exodus. The controls were tight, graphics were crisp, and the story was surprisingly engaging. I never played the previous 2 so I came in with fresh eyes. My only gripe is that the game would freeze often. Which would result in me having to turn off my Xbox and cut it back on. Other than that, I’m a satisfied customer.

    Amazing graphics on the XBOX 1 X. The story is excellent and the characters are memorable. The combat and exploration is fantastic for a shooter because they have done such a wonderful job with the world, set pieces, and enemies. Shooting isn't as snappy as say Call of Duty or Battlefield but its great for single player and doesn't take away from the overall experience.

    This game had some of the heaviest feeling movement I’ve experienced, to the point were it was tedious. Running, switching weapons, climbing stairs were all a chore. Using the map was a pain as well. The characters terrible accents were painful to listen to. Graphically, the game was outstanding. It’s a visual showcase. Sound quality was not so much.

    I really want to LOVE this game but I cant. There are some great qualities but overall the game is a bit clunky. The controls, story, and progression all need work. That said, there are some certainly fun aspects of the game. I never really played the other Metro games so perhaps this is typical - fans of the serious I am sure will enjoy it.

    This is not quite what I was hoping for. It's still early, but I can't say that I'm loving this game. OK graphics, good challenge, very dark at times and unclear goals. You don't know where to go half the time and will have to look at the map regularly, taking away from the overall experience. Not highly recommended.

    The game looks absolutely gorgeous in 4K on the X1X. I wish the game had a dynamic resolution mode to allow for a higher frame rate tho. My only other complaint is that the sensitivity settings aren’t nearly as sensitive as I’d like them to be. It’s just not fast enough. Hopefully they’ll address this in a future patch.

    After 2 previous games, Metro Exodus takes you out of Moscow and into the countryside of Russia. The graphics are impressive and you can adjust the difficulty to tailor to your preferred style of play. Definitely recommend this title if you're a fan of the series or if your a fan of post-apocalyptic games.

    For anyone who has played the other Metro games, expect more of the same. A solid storyline that keeps the player engaged, and fun gameplay. It’s far enough out from the release date now that a few patches have been issued to prevent freezing. Overall, it’s a really fun game and I recommend it.
