REVIEWS Dungeon of the Endless Review
A roguelike that’s equal parts charming and challenging with a turn-based twist.

Fantasy Life Review

Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

Welcome back to the apocalypse, comrade.

So have you ever ate something delicious and had someone magically give you more? That's how I feel about Metro Redux. 4A Games already delivered a flawless product and now they've re-delivered an even more polished version of two products we already know we love. If you haven't played any of the Metro games, you're missing out big time. This collection is a must-have.  



Metro 2033 has been completely rebuilt from the ground up in the 4A Engine, with improved textures, lighting effects, character details, and dynamic weather. The graphics upgrade isn't the only improvement it inherits from the engine upgrade. The developers have entwined some of the most iconic combat features of Metro: Last Light into Metro 2033, including more dynamic enemy AI, improved stealth and combat mechanics, the atmospheric 'mask wipe', weapon customization, and stealth kills.

The Redux version of Metro: Last Light is not without its gameplay improvements either. There are new melee animations which we all know we love, and the fan requested "check watch" and "check inventory" features have been added as well.



You will be able to play both games in "Survival" mode with limited resources, deadlier enemies, and slower reload speeds. The second playable mode is "Spartan" for those of you who want a more action-oriented experience with a wider availability of resources and more powerful combat skills. But don't worry, hardcore Metro fans; Ranger Mode isn't going anywhere and is available in both games, allowing you to experience the game with absolutely no HUD... so keep those adult diapers handy. You'll also have access to all of the DLC content previously only available with a season pass, adding almost ten hours to the already incredible story.  

Metro 2033 Redux, Metro: Last Light Redux, and the compilation of the two titles, Metro Redux, will be available this summer for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Windows PC. It's not often that a franchise is able to standout the way Metro has and it's impressive to see this saga continue to thrive because it is one of the most compelling games in the science-fiction shooter genre. Buy them separately as a digital download for $24.99 a piece or get the bundle for $49.99.
