Working on Metro Exodus Review

Recommended Posts

Metro Exodus released today and for any wondering, I am working on a review for it. The thing is it might still be a bit before I have it ready and submitted for our review editors to go through. I know this was a very anticipated title, so I am starting this thread for people to ask questions. I will do my best to answer these questions, without spoilers.

Just a few quick notes before hitting the Post button though. I am playing it on my desktop, with my RX Vega 64, so I cannot answer any questions about RTX or DLSS. Also, until today I have been working with a pre-release version of the game, so I have not bothered to collect performance data. I also had some issues with trying to collect media (videos and screenshots) so I effectively have none of those to share either, but I may be able to get some and the issues might be better now that the day-one patch is in place. (It also might not be the game as much as the Windows 1809 update I allowed to install prior to starting the game.)

So, with that technical stuff stated, ask what questions you want and I'll answer what I can.

 

Also, here's are patch notes for today's patch, which conveniently also state changes from when the review codes were sent out: Patch Notes Summary.

Yeah, it's not that small a game.

Okay, just finished the playthrough which took me 18 hours, 39 minutes, and 23 seconds (though actually 19:49:19 total playtime because I wanted to replay a section I did not do as well as I wanted to and had a convenient save file backup). Definitely enjoyed it and once I get something to eat, I'll get to work writing the review so there can be more detail than that and identifying things I liked and didn't like.

I didn't like the Demo at PAX West. Seems like they took STALKER and Metro and merged them together. Looks really nice and the gameplay is decent. Just maybe a little vague on the story part. I guess you aren't the same person as the first game?

Ive been playing the new metro . Downloaded this weekend. Theres so much cinema shots that you forget its a game and not a movie.

Im not very far into it. But I do get frustrated at all the cinema video. Hope it gets better..

As I recall, every section opens with cinema shots, but afterward it's just radio calls and conversations so you're in control, until the next section and its introduction segment.

Well Ive been playing the game off and on for a bit.Have gotten used to the cinema shots. Playing on the easiest setting. Tried at a harder setting and kept dying

Well anyways the game looks great . I have the FE 2080TI oc'ed and getting frame rates at around 100 fps playing ultra settings. If your looking for a game that looks good with a good story

this could be the one.
