Bad story, plastic world
«Waste of time»
Atmosphere combined with cutting edge graphics & RTX effects. DLSS is a game-changer. The enhanced edition of Metro Exodus is a triumph in my opinion.  
«Blew my mind»
I enjoy the gameplay, but I feel so unengaged whenever the other characters start a theater performance and talk at you. I think it would have helped if they allowed you to respond or just stripped you of control entirely to have real cutscenes. There's a weird disconnect because Artyom has a voice but he only uses it to narrate, I don't get why he can't speak throughout. I'd like to feel as if I'm controlling a fleshed out person here, but instead Artyom has a personality that exists only to the NPCs. 
This game kills you with boredom and bad gameplay and controls.
It is one of the most atmospheric and immersive FPS games out there. 
DLC Review:

Thoughts on Two Colonels:

I’m not big a fan of the flamethrower and it’s the main weapon so that’s not great. Also this game has the darkest levels. I can barely see anything. I find the underground Russian tunnels the least interesting of the metro exodus locations. Overall I don’t think this dlc worth playing. I really enjoyed the main game but this dlc is the worst parts and adds nothing new. 

Thoughts on Sam’s Story:

The opening is immediately better than 2Cs. It has the journey through the world vibes to it which the first is missing. 

Much better than 2Cs. Not nearly as good as I remembered the main game being. 

Original Review:

Metro Exodus has an amazing atmosphere, top quality visuals, and amazing locations. Every location brings something new. The cannibal base, the pimp overload, the underground mole level, the forest people, the snowy city to end the game, these are just some of the interesting and unique places you get to go. It was a great journey. Are the characters dumb? Yes they are but it somehow has a charm about it that makes it work. Maybe because I was high. Fantastic high game, definitely adds to the enjoyment.

The customization and resource management is well done, not ground breaking or anything but there is enough to keep it interesting. The semi open world fits the game very well. I thoroughly enjoyed Metro Exodus. 

Final Score: A-
Favorite Thing: A competent shooter made awesome by of its story and environments.
Least Favorite Thing: Never did like a silent protagonist.

Date Completed: 2019-10-01
Playtime: ~ 20h
Enjoyment: 9/10
Recommendation: If you're played the first two then Exodus is a must play. If not, time to get started.
At this point it just feels like I'm wanking the series off so I'll describe it like this; Metro 2033 = SSJ1, Metro Last Light = SSJ2, Metro Exodus = SSJ3

Seriously though, these games are so good.
