The result is a slick and satisfying twist on the DMC formula. And one that’s both rewarding and addicting in equal portions.

Greatest Games of 2019: Metro Exodus
Metro is a long-standing series based on the best-selling novels by Dmitry Glukhovsky. For fans of nightmarish dystopias, Metro has long led the field, in tandem with the Fallout franchise. Whereas the previous two entries focused more on the underground Metro system, and the hellish abominations that dwell within, Metro Exodus takes players topside for the first time.
Unlike past games, the world loses its linear roots in sections and opens into a sandbox of heinous horrors. This time around, players can craft on the fly, with an all-new item-creator mechanic. Also, improved physics, an advanced weather system, and an integrated day and night cycle make ‘Exodus’ the most immersive Metro experience yet. Not to mention those feral, mutated bears, which can strike fear in the hearts of even the most intrepid of explorers — step forth at your peril.
