I got the good ending but it was kinda meh. Seemed odd there was no dialog.

Good game overall, but it felt like it was on rails in a lot of places.

I guess I can always just lookup the good ending on Youtube. I googled how to get the good ending:

https://www.gamesradar.com/metro-exodus-good-ending-how-to-get/

  • Find and deliver the teddy bear and guitar in the Volga, as well as the family photo in the Caspian Sea.
  • Check random strangers with your reticle to see if they're friendly (green or yellow reticle), and approach with your weapon holstered. This includes the acolytes in the Volga, the bartender in the Volga, and the hermit in the Caspian Sea.
  • Don't kill the soldiers in the chapel or on the barge on the Volga.
  • Don't kill the acolyte soldiers on the bridge when you're leaving the Volga. This also ties into Duke's fate.
  • Don't kill the character that jumps you on the roof in in the first mission in the Caspian Sea. He’s called Saul, and if you don't kill him, you'll get access to his subquest line, as well as a better finale to the Caspian Sea.
  • Free the slaves in the outdoor mine and the slave camp in the Caspian Sea by stealthily knocking out the slaver guards. (And, as a rule, always avoid hurting them so watch those ‘nades.)
  • Don't kill the wounded soldiers at the Lighthouse battle in the Caspian Sea, and don't harm the slaves in the mission to steal the water tanker.
  • Don't kill forest tribe members in the Taiga whenever possible. Most of these guys can be avoided and don't even need to be knocked out.

Now I remember,I killed Saul when he jumped on me when I first started the Caspain Sea.

Fuck you Saul.

Ya I am struggling to get through it. Great graphics but extremely linear. More like watching a movie than playing a game. I think they also went over-board with the cut scenes you can't skip through.

Well good thing I waited a few days since my last post to get the game, it just went on sale on Steam for $20 or $30 with all the DLC, so I got the bundle deal. Perfect timing, as I'm just about to beat Last Light finally.

There's also DLC called Sam's Story. Nice add on level but Two Colonels well, save your $$$

I bought the bundle on Steam last month, it came with Sam's Story and Two Colonels. I have yet to play the DLC, I will get around it to eventually.

I didn't notice any bugs during my play through either. Seemed to run fine .

Its included on Xbox PC Game Pass that costs $5 a month with no commitment. buy one month. Play it, and any of over a 100 other titles, and cancel your subscription. Out just $5

IMO the game isn't very good. I played 4-6 hours in and uninstalled it because I still don’t like the Metro series for whatever reason. The game looks open world — but it’s definately on rails. Acting and dialogue is cheesy and feels hamfisted. Also RTX on the game adds basically nothing. Turn it on, or off, the game still looks great - too bad its just not very engaging.
My sentiments also. After 10 hours in, I keep thinking less about Metro, and reminded more of how great the Stalker series was, and how good an open world shooter it was. The humanimals and other anomalies are also incredibly easy to avoid In Metro. What are they even there for?

Graphics are superb though and everything on Ultra is smooth on an RTX 2070.

I'll be buying this on Steam when my build is complete.

It may not be a S.T.A.L.K.E.R, but it sure is closer than most things out there right now.

What resolution? I just started playing last night and at 3440x1440 on my 2080 at Ultra settings and hairworks and Advanced Physx with RTX ultra on and getting between 50-70 FPS, which is good enough for me with G-sync. Looking at some bench comparisons, it looks like there's really no difference between RTX high and ultra, so might step that down and also there's pretty much no IQ difference between Ultra and Extreme settings either (but there's a 10% or so hit on performance still), so definitely stick with Ultra.

as long as your using “pretty much” as the benchmark, there’s pretty much no difference between RTX on and RTX off in the majority of the game, so you might as well leave it off and gain a huge amount of performance.

You're probably right.. I just feel like if I have the hardware to utilize those special features, I might as well use it. There's definitely a significant difference between RT on and off than there is between RT high and ultra though, hah. I know RT even at this point is a relatively weak excuse to get an RTX card, but it is a perk that I wanted to use nonetheless. If I'm getting 60ish FPS while using it still too, I'm good with that. I have to turn on DLSS to keep it at that 60ish FPS too, which definitely softens the image up if you compare screens side by side, but it doesn't seem too noticeable while moving around in game at least to me. Would be awesome if they added DLSS 2.0 to the game since its image quality is as good or even better than native res with no AA, but I doubt that's happening at this point or it'll be too late for me by the time I beat the game anyways.

I'm running lower res than you. Only 2560 x 1440.

I found RTX to make things unplayable in certain areas, RTX 2070, Ryzen 3700X. But I have not played an updated version of the game. It does make lighting look more realistic but wasn't worth the FPS hit. 2460x1440 here.

which Metro: Exodus DLC is the better one- Sam's Story or The Two Colonels?
I've only played Sam's Story and thought it was quite good. I do have the Two Colonels, but haven't tried that yet. I've heard its quite short.
