Metro Redux Review Roundup

This is a good week to be shopping for games if you're looking for a bargain for your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. Metro Redux brings together remastered and revamped versions of both Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light. The critically acclaimed post apocalyptic first-person action adventures take place in the ruins of Moscow.

"Despite their seemingly miserable setting, both Metro games are in fact fun, diverse shooter-adventures," says IGN's 8.6/10 review of the Redux package. "Getting both in a single, enhanced package is a great way to discover (or rediscover) the Moscow Metro's unconventional charms."

As the older of the two games, it is Metro 2033 that benefits most from this makeover. "A side-by-side comparison of the original and the remastered 2033 are striking," says Gamespot's 8/10 review. "Consider, for instance, the first moment you emerge into the Russian winter. The original game suggested the frigidity in part by way of crystalline fractals upon your gas mask; in the Redux version, a full snow is underway, and the sense is less of a brisk chill than it is of a piercing bite."

Official Xbox Magazine, meanwhile, appreciates how completely remaking 2033 using Last Light's superior control system and interface has resulted in a more cohesive package that feels like two halves of one enormous game. "Some scenes have been changed entirely to create a more cohesive Metro experience - we won't spoil any particular moments, but it's great to see such attention to detail," argues its 9/10 review. "Coupled with a rock-solid 60fps on both games, this is a stellar remaster."

CVG, meanwhile, praises the inclusion of new game modifiers available across both titles in its 8/10 verdict. "4A has listened to 2033 fans disappointed by Last Light's heavier action leaning and included an option to play either game in Spartan or Survivor," says the review. "The former makes things like mask filters and ammunition more plentiful, increasing the pace of both campaigns as a result and encouraging you to rely on your weapon, not your wits. The latter is classic 2033 survival horror with much more limited pickups, craftier AI and tougher stealth conditions."

Metro Redux is out on August 29th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
