    One of the worst games I've ever played.

    Ok, so the story seems intriguing to start with but the pictures and description of the game are not what you end up doing. Yes, you can run around and talk to everyone and you even have to talk to lots of people to unlock the next step in the mission. However, there is no map. There is no mission tracker to tell you which way to go. There is no hints displayed to tell you that you'll need gas mask air filters to get through the next mission, etc... You will spend HOURS simply trying to find out where to go. Then, when you finally find it... you wont have the proper gear. Where can you get the proper gear? From the mission you completed eight hours ago. That's the ONLY place you can obtain what you need to complete the current mission. The graphics are excellent and the story line is compelling but the execution is terrible. This game is awful and a tremendous waste of time. You'll have to replay missions over and over and over just to find the correct path or the material you need for future missions. Don't waste you time with this one.

    Return to the world of Metro

    This Metro Redux 2-pack is great. Set in a post-apocalyptic Russia, Metro is a first person shooter that finds survivors living largely underground in Russia's Metro stations. Above ground, monstrosities prowl a poisonous, destroyed earth. Currency is bullets, and gas mask filters are a must. It's a dark, bleak, depressing future that plays similarly to Fallout, with less RPG and humor. Metro 2033 (the first game,) has been given an overhaul with the updated engine from the second game, Metro: Last Light, and the results make the world of 2033 worth revisiting. Along with the updated engine, both games include all DLC, along with new ways to play- a newer, even harder mode, as well as an "easier" mode- where bullets are more plentiful, allowing for more focus on fun than resource management. Even if you've played the Metro series in the past, the price tag is low enough to be worthwhile even if you just want to experience the biggest changes that come with Metro 2033.

    Excellent Post-Apocalyptic Shooter

    Metro Redux is nothing short of spectacular. The game itself is actually two previous gen titles' that have been remastered for the Xbox one and PS4. The game is set in a series of abandoned metro tunnels in a post - apocalyptic Moscow. The game itself features customization in terms of weaponry and distinct, but albeit obvious moral choices. In this game you will encounter several factions that take form from WW2 era historical events. The game play is balanced but at times difficult, that is depending on which setting you play on. (Survivor VS. Spartan). The game also draws from horror, and spiritual elements. As well as political correctness, aspects of survival, and many other themes. On a side note I would not recommend this game for children due to both the graphic nature of the game, as well as there being nudity. But for those who do bring themselves to engage in the story of the metro. Look forward to the story of a lifetime.

    I never played the original release of either game, so I didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised by the graphics and overall feel of the game. It's a very dark and moody game with really nice firefights. This game would be great even without the dark story, but I am glad it has one. Unique story and great attention to detail. The moral point system is really not necessary, as you don't know when you are making choices. Game play, theme, graphics and story really shine for an older game. I enjoyed Last Light a little more but the original is still really enjoyable. Last Light looks better but game play is the same. I recommend this game for fans of horror, shooters, story and those seeking a unique atmosphere in thier games. Hoping for a next gen sequel. I am a big fan of this series.

    Though I had played through each of these games during the previous generation of consoles, I found the price of this bundle to be good enough to go through again and see how well the game has held up. The Metro games have one of the strangest stories, and caters to all different play styles. I personally like playing games through on harder difficulties, so I will many times shoot all the lights out and start taking enemies out, one by one. The weapons feel like they would be the exact type of things we would be using if we were put in that situation. The pnuematic weapons are some of the more interesting, as you will have to pump your gun up every so often to keep it running at full strength. I'd talk more about the story, but it is just something that you have to experience for yourself!

    I bought this game knowing next to nothing about it and I'm glad that I did. The story in the two games is immensely entertaining and thought-provoking, definitely doing justice to the novels they are based on. The gameplay mechanics are also really fun and something I have not really seen before; ammunition you find throughout the world is used as currency, you can completely modify your weapons to your liking, and you have to frequently charge the power in your flashlight and find air filters for your gas mask to survive the harsh surface world. This adds a whole new level of terrifying immersion, and I felt like I was really struggling to survive. In addition, the graphics have been totally revamped for the PS4 and the world looks beautifully stark and depressing. If you want two great shooters for the price of one, this is the game for you!

    Metro is overall a great game that has alot of new elements in a somewhat stagnant category/genre. Metro is a great story of post-apocalyptic Russia where mutants and other familiar regimes from history act as your foe. The gameplay is solid and the new elements it adds cause lots of new strategies to be used that you don't commonly see in FPS's. While being swamped by mutants and monsters, having to change your gas mask filter sounds like a hassle, but it adds a really fun frantic element to the game that is hard to find elsewhere. I rated 4 of 5 stars as the voice acting is terrible and often times painful to listen to. Also, it seems every mission ends/begins with you being knocked out, passed out, or waking up. While these aren't detracting from the actual game, they are issues that really stand out as corny, so can't be perfect!

    Great Set of Games - Great Price

    Great set of games for a fantastic price. If you enjoy atmospheric games such as Alan Wake, The Last of Us, or Fallout 3 these games are going to tickle that itch. I especially enjoy the stealth component of the game! Taking out a garrison with silenced weapons is so much fun. Combine that is a light scary vibe with monsters roaming around and you get a really entertaining experience which looks and plays great on PS4. My only issue with the game are the frequent loading screens from the original games. While I understand why they had to have them before, I would have loved for more areas to be stitched together and load in the background while playing. But that is a minor issue. Overall they are much faster than I remember at around 5-10 seconds.

    This game is a bit older but it is terrible. You will spend tens of hours just trying to figure out where to go. There is no map or direction arrow to tell you where to go which is very frustrating. Then you'll find an area you have to cross where you need a gas mask, which you will have but wont have any filters. You have to save every single filter you possibly can to get through that area. You have to save them four or five saves earlier to make it through, which means you have to restart the game. Completely frustrating game, terrible story line, terrible character interactions, boss fights are like they amped them up ten times more than anything you fought to get there. Dont waste your time with this one.

    This game looks great on PS4! Long story short: this is a great value in video gaming. The Metro Redux collection includes both Metro games redone in HD. Both games have a unique perspective on a post apocalyptic world that is very engrossing paired with a compelling story packed with intense suspense and furious action. I wish that the Metro game experience was open world; there is so much story and environment to explore and experience. I will admit that both games start off a little slow in the beginning but, that helps build the suspense for later encounters. However, hours melted away as I became involved in the lead characters's journey. Buy this.

    I was interested in the Metro games (Metro 2033 and then Metro: Last Light) when they cam out last generation but I never bought them. With Metro Redux now at $20ish, it caught my attention. The games both have excellent graphics on the PS4 and do a great job telling a good story and creating a good atmosphere. The games provide a linear fps with decent battles (Last Light has some cool stealth opportunites). There are lots of difficulty settings and I chose "normal", which seemed to provide way too much ammo, etc. Definitely worth it if you have the time!

    This is not your average shooter. this game can be tough! is that a bad thing? The answer is not at all! The game looks absolutely gorgeous on the PS4 and plays very well. Even after getting my butt kicked by raiders or mutants over nd over on a level. there is something that keeps pulling me back to do it till I get the better of them. It just has that factor. Great game or should I say 2 games for the Price if you haven't experienced metro 2033 on last gen Consoles do your self a favor and pick this title up. It is a gem of a shooter but hiding among some of the bigger franchises!

    The Metro series is one of the most hauntingly atmospheric in gaming. If you haven't played this series, this is a great opportunity to jump onboard. You're getting a good value with both Metro games and all DLC. Both games are remastered for the new consoles, but the first game gets the biggest boost. Metro 2033 is at times stunning to look at, and Last Light even manages to surpass that. Small gameplay tweaks to 2033 brings it into the modern era and makes the game more of a joy to play. If you're looking for an engrosing experience look no further than these two unique games.

    I highly recommend this game for avid fps players, this game has a in depth story with awesome visuals. following the metro 2033 books, the setting is dark and apocalyptic, allowing two play styles one for the more survival type gameplay and the other is a shooter base gameplay. giving the game more depth and feel is the upgraded visuals and animation system. no lie one of the best looking games if not the best. For fifty dollars you get two games with all the dlc included can't pass that up. Great time to pick this up and play with the ps4 drought that is going on.

    Amazing Value for game play and story

    If you love interesting stories that deal with post apocalyptic worlds/aliens, this is a great game and story. Both games together on this disc will give at least 16 hours of game play. This game is a port that was remastered for HD, and looks decent, but not amazing. Still, the game is entertaining, enticing and fun. It also has a different vibe than most FPSs. When you are in the world, you feel the weight of being alone in harsh environments. Which helps with the transformation of the player becoming who they are supposed to be inside.

    I went into this series blind having not read any of the books or the like after a friend recommended it to me. I dived right in and it hooked me. I got a lot of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. vibes from the game, and the story is definitely the most rewarding aspect. Looking forward to the third one just announced, as well as interested in reading the books now! Fantastic FPS package that will give you tons of hours of gaming.

    Never before and never since these 2 games were released has there been a FPS series drenched with so much atmospheric post apocalyptic content that draws pure emotions out of you. They must be experienced first hand to even comprehend it. If you want a great FPS with a heart wrenching story and pitch perfect atmosphere that really makes you feel like you are part of its world then pick up this package that contains BOTH Metro games including all DLC at an amazing value.

    I've always been a huge fan of Fallout 3 and this game seemed similar so I gave it a try. I really wanted to play this game stealthily, but the AI always seemed to hear me or see me no matter what. That made me a bit upset. Its still a good game though. It definitely got my heart pumping at times. Play this in the dark with a headset. Oh and warn you family beforehand if you happen to be a screamer like me so they don't come bursting through the door.

    Knowing this game was a remake for the newer consoles I was a bit skeptical about the playable value this game had. I was greatly mistaken, when I first started the game up I noticed the graphics were really high end, and the gaming mechanics were straight on point. Another thing that really surprised me was how deep the story was, I really listened to the story and it was really interesting. Overall this game has great graphics, great gaming mechanics, and a great story definite buy!

    I purchased this game pre-owned from Best Buy and it arrived complete and it excellent condition. Metro Redux includes the original game Metro 2033 and the sequel Metro Last Light both remastered for the PlayStation 4. These are two excellent games that have been overlooked by many, I highly recommend purchasing this Redux collection if you missed the games last gen. These games have great gameplay and good stories. I would highly recommend Metro Redux to all gamers.
