 Metro Redux Title.jpg

 

Now post apocalyptic settings have been commonplace in video games for quite some time now. Many of us, have ventured the wastelands in the Fallout series. I myself have easily spent over 200 hundred hours there throughout all the games in the franchise. Games like Darksiders take a much more fantastical approach, with all the burnt out cars and destroyed building still present, giving us the feel and look of Earth after the apocalypse. Many more games have done this idea in numerous ways, Half-Life 2, STALKER, Devil May Cry, Final Fantasy, The Walking Dead, LEFT4DEAD and the list goes on. Out of all these numerous titles one game series has always stood out to me, with it’s unmatched narrative and a setting which one could deem quite possible, simply called Metro and with Metro Redux, its time to go back to the Moscow underground.
