Metro Exodus (PS5) first impressions

The coldest world you can imagine 🥶☢️🚊

I ended up with the PS5 version of Metro Exodus in my library a few months back. My brother was convinced by a friend to pick this one up for around $10 during a sale. This meant that I would be able to claim the game as well since we game share with each other. I have had this downloaded for a few weeks now, but am just now finally getting around to playing it.

I have zero experience with Metro games outside of reading some posts and watching videos from friends on Hive. I somehow was never drawn to the game, but am aware that many people love it a lot. I was genuinely excited about Metro Exodus, nobody had ever told me anything bad about the game. Maybe this would be something I'd get hooked on?

Let me just say this game is on another level of beauty in regards to the atmosphere. The snowy and radiation poisoned world is a total joy to look at. The same can be said for the cool use of the PS5's DualSense controller capabilities. The developers did not half-ass this next-gen upgrade.

This is a single-player experience on the edge of the survival horror genre. I won't say that it is straight-up horror, but it is definitely creepy and will make you jump. The vibes reminded me a lot of early Bioshock games which made you feel vulnerable quite often. Tense situations in games aren't usually my thing, I prefer to relax when playing.

These are my first impressions of Metro Exodus. Now let's see if I can continue forth through the game to actually finish the story. Hopefully, I don't give up on this one too soon.

I've heard amazing things about the game. I've played the first two and love them but haven't played Exodus yet! The games are actually based on a series of books too!

yea, kinda creepy, but it's rare to find a game that can make u silent and tense and scared all at the same time. plus, the lack of ammo adds to the hopeless feeling. the intro reminded me of this movie snowpiercer, and the look of the game reminds me of fallout.

I guess I just get stress rather than enjoyment from games like this.

I thought Snowpiercer at the start as well! I loved that movie so much. I’ve never watched the TV Show though.

I tried it but ended up quitting it halfway through. That was after pushing myself through most of it. It was just a bit to different from the old Metro games for my liking.

Looks intense though. Kind of reminds me of Wolfstein 2.

It has an intense atmosphere for sure. It was just the pacing I didn’t like mostly. Story wasn’t as intense as the last ones either.

Oh yeah the pacing is slow. Daltono was stressed out by it.

I think it would have been more fun in third person mode like Last of us.

And here I was thinking @pusen would be the one to tell me to give this another chance. I’m glad I don’t have to be shamed. That’s as long as @belemo doesn’t call me out for being too afraid to continue 😅

Instead of saying you pussied out, we'll just say you got "bored" of the game 😄

Looks pretty interesting game (like Resident Evil). It seems that the game's intensity is all over you (^_^) have a nice day ahead.

I don’t really enjoy Metro or RE, but respect both for being creep experiences.

I do not know,
I tried it too, but it's too boring for me, you know? 🥱

We can agree on this game.
Hopefully the 4K video quality doesn’t use up all of your data 😉
