Game is fun. I like the story line. Im on my 4th play through. I only play in spurts, but the first time I played for hours. It is still on rails, sure, but I had a ton of fun shooting shit.
To be fair, I played a metro at launch and had recently finished Witcher 3. (My favorite game ever). The whole time I was playing Metro I was thinking this isn’t even close to as good as Witcher 3. There were a lot of areas that looked like they’d be open like Witcher 3 to explore but you ran into invisible walls everywhere.I enjoyed the first 2 metro games. Games on rails can be very good because they can setup really engaging set pieces. Also there is a good sense of progression. I never understood the hate for games on rails. Not every game needs to be open world with 100 hours of repetitive fetch quests.
I got it when it launched on Steam for $30 with all the DLC and it constantly crashes on my system (2700X/RTX 2080/X470 mobo/32GBs 3000 MHz RAM) every 10-30 mins or so, but I managed to get several hours into it still with persistent trying. After hours of troubleshooting, I could never figure out what causes it to crash. Very annoying and disappointing, esp. right after I had just played through 2033 and Last Light Redux, so I was pretty invested in its story.
