    Metro Exodus - First on the Epic Store

    Not sure how many hours I've clocked in as Epic wont tell, but its probably in the range of 10-15 hours. The similarities to STALKER is there, right of the bat..I mean the menu screen. The problem is that Metro and STALKER are two different games. Metro has always been heavy on the story and narrative, while STALKER always forced you to discover things on your own. Exodus tries to do both and it doesn't always succeed. Some parts of the game blow my socks off....yes I had to buy new socks. Others parts made me go really, you cant do better? Not sure what I would like to see changed. I mean I liked both the previous Metro games and STALKER, so I dont want to see anything changed. Maybe less cut-scenes and scripted events would be a good start.

    Good review. I've reached the Aral sea and now it feels like playing Rage.

    Metro Exodus - First on the Epic Store

    Yes thats been the main issue with all the Metro games, but as others have said the game really opens up. The cut scenes are there to set up the narrative, but once you get past the starter area the game starts to shine.

    The music in this is very hit or miss. Just arrived at the ark and the theme is fantastic, in other parts of the game it has been kinda bland.

    Thank for the tip, I hadn't noticed any color difference So far I haven't used any shotguns. I got my scoped AK, a pistol witth reflex sights and that gun you have to crank the lever thing.

    Ghouls mutants are the worst thing ever. Sometimes they die after one bullet, other times they are bullet sponges. Bandits seems way nerfed, they surrender very easily. I wouldn't be surprised if they release a patch nerfing the surrender mechanics.

    Mass Effect Andromeda

    I got this cheap a few months ago. Its nowhere as good as the trilogy, but its great for passing time if you dont have anything else to play. The biggest flaws are lack of choices compared to the originals as illustrated by the video posted by Gorf King, and the horrible vault exploration. Activating vaults are a boring chore. The game feels very half ass, and it is as if it was made by a completely different studio. Its mass effect in name only, and it lacks the charm the previous games had.

    Far Cry 2 had it, and it was great.

    Metro Exodus - First on the Epic Store

    This game is great. I do hate the railroading in the beginning but thats just setting up the narrative. The sound in this game is also amazing.

    Quest markers, see enemies through walls, shooters where there is a damage counter that appears when you hit an enemy, videos of game play where the player reloads after firing 3 bullets. The last one really gets on my nerves and modern shooters should have some type of reload penalty. Chest high walls and exploding barrels also irritates me, whenever you enter an area with any of those you know theres going to be a fight.

    Female characters with impossible proportions and male characters that looks like The Rock that did more steroids. I would love to see a game where the protagonist looks like some random person.
