recommend playing Metro: 2033 Redux before playing or knowing anything of this game, otherwise you might be confused and lose important advancements in the previous game.
This game, or shall I say experience, is truly an unknown Gem. It is remarkable, and it is sad that it is not too well known. I didn't even know of its existence until it was on sale and steam recommended it to me, and I bought it due to the fact it reminded me of the Fallout series.
This game is brilliant, as well as its predecessor Metro: 2033 Redux. They both leave you with an eerie feeling that sticks with you, sort of indescribable. The overall tone of this game is of morality, it glimpses to the past and evaluates its crimes committed. Ultimately leading to a morbid journey through trials that is to undue the sins of the past.
~Some Pros/cons I compiled. ~
+ Morality has its role to play.
+ Its story progresses smoothly, and goes off soon after the ending of its previous game.
+ Gorgeous, very atmospheric and it completely immerses you into this world of post-apocalyptic Russia.
+ It's combat system is very well laid out, you can choose to be stealthy or simply go full on into combat.
+ You get to choose from a nice array of weaponry, as well as possess some nice upgrades for them.
+The story is affected by your actions.
+They managed to include the antagonists of 'The Reds' (Communism), and 'The Reich' (Nazis) in such a way that it is not corny, but rather emphasizes the struggle not for only day to day survival in post-nuclear life but rather its political/social injustices as well.
+It includes supernatural/spiritual scenes as well, nice touch.
- Some achievements are hard to get.
- Very few minor graphical errors.
-This game does not always hold your hand.
- It ends.
