Metro Redux hands-on: Nuclear winter has never looked so appealing

Hayden Dingman | June 2, 2014
Metro 2033, rough as it is around the edges, is one of my favorite games of all time. Metro: Last Light is also a darn fine game. Despite some odd story quirks, both games ooze atmosphere. "Immersion" is an oft-bandied term that has become progressively meaningless, but few other shooters would urge you to stop and watch a fifteen-minute vaudeville act in the middle of the story. Few games would employ a system where your most powerful bullets are also currency, forcing you to make a choice between stopping power and wealth.

I'm looking forward to digging deeper in a review later this summer — checking those graphics comparisons, for example. At the moment, all I can say is that this does appear to be the definitive version of each game, and perfect if you've for some reason held off on either. The Metro games are games worth playing.
