This was a terrific review that makes me want to play the game. I've heard general rumblings about it being overlooked, and I remember there was a lot of excitement when the Wii U sequel was announced, but mostly this seemed like a game that wasn't likely worth my attention. I still may not play it, resources being what they are, but now I can't kid myself into thinking that I'm not missing anything special if I don't experience it someday.

What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

Look who shows up on my 5/5 week. I'm on to you, Micheal.

I finally picked Metro up the other day. You just bumped it up my list.


For us. For them. For you.

"Micheal," eh? Is that how they're spelling it these days?

I sympathize with you, Jason. I rented this game earlier this year when I wanted something to play and there were no interesting new releases at the time; otherwise, it probably would have slipped past me completely. I was very pleasantly surprised by it, and since all of my attempts to review recent games have failed (Shadows of the Damned, Dungeon Siege III, etc.), I figured I'd give this one its due. I'm glad you enjoyed the review and I hope you get around to playing it.

Nice review. I was already slightly interested in this game, and now I'm much more so. I disagree about Fallout 3, but that's beside the point.

One thing though: I don't think you mean 'compassionate'; I think you mean 'passionate'.

Yep, you're correct about that. Thanks for the catch.

This is an absolutely stonking review. Ultimately I found the action-centric-ness is what made me enjoy the game a bit less than you, but you hit all the right points, and in an elegant way. STRONG!

Thanks, Lewis! I'll consider myself proud of my work every time I manage to pull you out of hiding.

I actually read your review shortly after I finished the game myself (this was months ago) and was a bit surprised you didn't enjoy it more. I'd say the reason I wasn't more frustrated with the shooting segments was because the game rarely seemed to settle on them for very long. The only area of the game that really tested my patience was the part in the last act where you had to get your AI-controlled partner safely through a hive of those amoeba things. Escort missions are tricky to pull off, and indefinitely respawning enemies are a no-no under virtually any circumstance.
