    A great series re-released on the next-gen console

    I waited for this game to drop down to 25$ to pick it up, and honestly It was far more than worth it. I loved the first metro when I got it on PC and never got last light until this redux'd version. Last light met my expectations of a metro game and introduced more mechanics and elements expanding on the original. But we are here to talk about the redux, not just last light. For those who played the original metro, this redux'd version plays very similar to it, but with a few notable changes. these changes are minor cosmetic changes such as picking up all the supplies in a stash instead of each piece individually. The most disappointing change was the removal of the armor system from 2033 in the redux. this isn't a big deal, but I was hoping more for a game updated visually without touching the game's mechanics. Because there is no stealth suit or heavy armor the stealth plays more closely to last light and the health i can not tell for sure, but I know you can not have the same protection as heavy armor. For those who have never played the metro series, this game is not for everyone. Focusing on the combat, you have the choice of a stealth approach or all out firefights. supplies can be little and far in between depending on what difficulty you play on. The shooting is solid and satisfying as is the bits of chatter you will hear between soldiers as you are sneaking around them. Overall I love this game and is an instant favorite for those into stealthy FPS games that limit your resources.

    Fun Shooter RPG. Both Games are a bit manipulative, and sometimes you cant figure out what is needed to proceed in game. Went on line a couple of times to find out how to proceed. Died a lot because of not really knowing what I was doing. I was Playing in SURVUVAL MODE....Less Ammo. BUT ....Cant wait to play through again now that I know what I know. It will be less frustrating, and I will have more time to look around, and absorb the game better. The New And Improved Graphics Were Great, story was good. It was fun. Also had trouble switching from Metro 2033 to Metro Last Light on my Xbox One. It would only go to the first game screen. I finally had to erase the first game in order to get onto the cover screen where it gave you a choice on which game to play. Probably my ignorance on using my XBOX ONE. I didn't run into any glitch's, but one needs to watch the save points because if you are not close to one and then quit the game, when you go back on it could throw you back farther than you want to go. I will be playing both games again. METRO REDUX is a Classic.

    I played Metro 2033 on the Xbox 360 when it came out several years ago. I thought it was fantastic. Creepy atmosphere and engaging storyline. For Metro Redux, the development team completely rebuilt the game (Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light) to include new content, graphics, and other features. I have played the first few levels of Metro 2033 with a friend and we were both amazed at the quality. He went and bought the game the next day. Now I only have one minor gripe at this time, and it's very minor. I do love how you can now play the game in other languages (Russian, French, Spanish, etc) with English subtitles. I decided to play with Russian language and English subtitles. The main storyline and interaction captures the Russian language with appropriate subtitles, but any background discussions as you walk around your base camp do not show subtitles. So you will walk by people speaking in Russian, and even making remarks to you, but there are no associated subtitles. I might switch back to English (with Russian accents) to get the full effect. Overall, these are two fantastic games and I highly recommend them in the Metro Redux package.

    Based on Russian novel on fictional characters: set in a post Chernobyl event which much of Russia is devastated by a nuclear fallout. As a result humans can't survived on the radiated atmosphere thus must lived in the metro tunnels. Story telling is rich and well paced to keep the player on their wits against unspeakable horrific creatures which dwelves in the dark metro tunnels and on the surface. A struggle between good vs evil as you play the character Artyom who is struggling to find out about his past and helping his fellow survivors fight to survived each day. Graphics are excellent as well as the voice acting. The developer managed to tie together the events of the first part of the game to the second game called metro last light. A very well made game which was a sleeper hit on the current Xbox 360 and PS3 console. I highly recommend this game to anyone who wants something original in story telling, resource management, great graphics and voice acting

    I was elated to hear this game was coming to next gen consoles. I was upset to hear that the original didn't live up to expectation despite the great story. I was happy they went through with the sequel and that the work was put in to making its way to next gen consoles. I think it's important to return to middle market, lesser known titles. Considering we are in a new generation of consoles, I hope this title gets the recognition it deserves. I enjoyed the level design, the weapon customization, creature effects, the fact that bullets can be traded as currency. The attention to detail is impressive. Of the series, I had only played Metro Last Light so it was interesting comparing and contrasting my experience from my 360 to my Xbox One. This release makes me want to read the Russian cult hit it was based upon.

    I've primarily played FPS games, but I simply could NOT get into this one, or, these two? This game includes both the original AND the sequel, both of which have received great face lifts. I tried both of them, and applied multiple days into the first game, Metro 2033, but in the end, I just could not find myself involved enough to keep going. Though the graphical quality has dramatically improved, as well as the UI (user interface), I found it odd that the NPC received no reprogramming... They do not react to gunfire, don't react to receiving damage, and honestly don't feel right... They have a very stale feel to them, which translates quickly to the gamer... I would love to say that this game was great like so many told me before I purchased it, but... I just couldn't get into it... :(

    Metro Redux is snazzier version of the last gen versions, what with improved graphics, tweaked gameplay mechanics, and added DLC. This is not just a game, it's a story, 2 of them in fact bundled on 1 disc. The atmosphere is creepy and interesting and the story keeps you going, trying to survive a wasteland filled with monstrous baddies. If you like shooters with a narrative, this is worth picking up. The upgraded graphics of this game from the last gen games made a huge difference on an already solid looking game and the story just hooks you in more. Plus, based of a real book series, it's got reading material that can be used in conjunction with it too. Get it!

    Metro has been a surprising blast for me to play. The story and nature of the game had me immediately glued to the game - I played for 4 hours straight on my first try. The pacing, dialogue, and setting are that good. It also has a bit of a horror element to it, but not an uncomfortable amount - I was sweating from the tension and eerie moments, but was never truly scared (I bought this game for the story and shooter gameplay). Ultimately, I was expecting the game to be good, but it exceeded these expectations. With two high-quality games at $50, there is no better value in a shooter game on the next-gen consoles (yet).

    Metro Last Light and Metro 2033 came out for the Xbox 360 and I never got around to playing either title. After reading reviews, and asking my friends who own it for PC, they highly recommended it. I only put about 2 hours into it so far, but it looks gorgeous. It isn't as amazing as Assassin's Creed Black Flag, but the character models and cinematics are gorgeous to behold. The environment feels different from Fall-Out, another post-nuclear wasteland shooter, and the gritty world below makes for a more linear story, but much more harrowing encounters in the sewers. Play it in the dark, and jack up the sound. It's no Dead Space, but death in Metro is never pretty.

    Firstly this is a remake of a two games that came out a few years ago! If you haven't played either of them like me then I would definitely recommend it because of the amount of context that's available. The two games have been remastered with better AI, more cut scenes, and most importantly jaw dropping graphics! Before I purchased the game the gameplay was some what intimidating because of the survival aspect; however difficulty level can be adjusted from finding more than enough supplies to having to make every shot count! No multiplayer, but the story makes up for it! I mean who wouldn't want two games, their DLC's for the price of one game!.

    If you think about the conditions 4A studios had to work with (seriously, look it up), you would expect a game to look like a 1990s shooter. However, a remastered game is becoming a commonplace thing in 2014 with Tomb Raider, Last of Us and now Metro, it seems like it wants to take your money just because they know you'll buy it. Thankfully though, as someone who missed playing the previous versions of Metro: 2033 and Metro: Last Light on their original consoles, I welcome a remastered, repolished look for 2014. And in all honesty, I cannot wait to finish Wolfenstein: The New Order to begin playing this game.

    The games have a great story, but the controls are not responsive enough to adequately track the enemies even at the highest sensitivity. It seems like the game was built more for a gaming mouse and keyboard due to its low motion and aiming sensitivity. Even though the game has this flaw, it does not detract from the story or the game play too much where you still cannot enjoy the game. Overall, it's a great buy for those who have never played metro before, and wish to experience the better graphics on the new consoles. It was a great game to hold me over while I wait for the new fallout to come out in 2015.

    I never had a chance to play these games before on the previous generation consoles and have heard very good things about both titles, so for 50$ this was a deal. I like the atmosphere and setting of the story so far ( I haven't gotten around to the second game yet but so far so good.) I think that this a good buy if you're a fan of FPS games and want something that doesn't revolve around multiplayer and let's you play at your own pace. Anyway that's just my opinion, if you choose to pick this game up I'm sure that you will enjoy it for what it is and that would be that it's a great game so far.

    The best definitive versions of the Metro games...

    The Metro series is a great franchise. Both, Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, are highly acclaimed games, and while both have appeared on the Xbox 360, only a powerful PC can do them justice. Console gamers, especially PS4 owners, have never played Metro the way the developers intended due to technical limitations. Thankfully, after remastering both games from the ground up. So now you get awesome versions of both Metro games with all the DLC included, running at a locked 60FPS, for only $50. It's one of the couple of remasters that are actually justified.

    I've some how never heard of the metro series so when I picked it up I wasn't expecting much but I was in for a surprise! This is two games remastered for next gen and they look absolutely beautiful. If you enjoyed Fallout or the STALKER you will probably enjoy this game as well. This game kinda limits your exploration in the way that you can't go back to earlier areas at free will. Besides that I got sucked into this and it didn't leave my disk tray until I beat both 2033 and last light.... Oh and did I mention it comes with all the DLC?

    Both games follow the path of a gifted independent soldier through a post apocalyptic Moscow city subway system. Some puzzles, but mostly FPS type gameplay. The fiction is fairly well fleshed out, and the graphics are great. This has a chapter type game progression, and no player defined saves. It makes going back, and trying for an achievement a little difficult without playing through the whole chapter again. Definitely worth the price though, as both games offer at least 20 hours of gameplay with multiple different levels of play offered.

    Some of the best story driven games you can buy

    I've played both of these games quite a few times. There are some of my favorite for their stories. IT's a very decent FPS, but the main focus here is on the atmosphere and story of the post apocalyptic Moscow Metro. These gales are based on the best selling sci-fi books from Russia, they actually include lines from the books and follow the story very closely. The Redux version looks amazing, so if you haven't played these two games yet, this is the best chance to experience them.

    With all the great games from the last generation, the Metro titles kind of flew under the radar with me. When I heard this collection was being remastered on the One, I did a little research and decided to jump on it. I have not been dissappointed. Amazing gameplay and an interesting story are always welcome, but the overall atmosphere and tone keep me coming back. I'd definitely recommned picking this up if you are looking for one of the best games to hit the current generation consoles.

    If you happen to miss Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light on the previous console generation then now is the time to get in on these games. I never played them before but now that they were bundled on the same disc for a cheaper price I thought i would give it a try and it was a great risk. Plays like a survival horror with scrounging for resources while playing like any other good first person shooter. Lots a replayability to try and beat the games in different modies.

    When I saw this title on sale I went back and forth on whether or not I wanted to pick it up. I researched and found that this remastered set of games had been very well received and reviewed. So I decided to drop the $40 on this compilation and I couldn't be happier. If you're looking for a truly atmospheric title then Metro Redux is where it's at. Pros: Atmospheric Fantastic Controls Great Story that sucks you in Great Graphic Cons: Can be slow at times.
