Metro Redux for PC, PS4 and XONE is a bundle release of two installments of the Metro series based on the Metro 2033 Universe, a grim post-apocalyptic vision of the future created by Dmitry Glukhovsky. The pack includes enhanced (especially in terms of graphics) editions that utilize the capabilities of the 8th-generation consoles: PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Metro 2033 for PC, PS4 and XONE was initially released in 2010. Its action takes place mainly in the tunnels of the Moscow subway, that have become a shelter for the survivors of an atomic apocalypse. The main protagonist is a youngster called Artem, and the story is closely related to the novel of the same title, released in 2005. We explore the underground crannies, and fight frightening mutants or, alternatively, sneak around them. Although not flawless, the title was praised by the critics for its incredible atmosphere as well as some interesting solutions in terms of narration, and inventory.
The second game of the bundle is the 2013ís Metro: Last Light. We assume the role of Artem yet again, although this time around, we abandon the subway tunnels to explore the ruined areas on the surface. The developers at 4A Games took the criticism of the original game to their hearts, which resulted in the improved combat mechanics, more open locations, and the implementation of a multiplayer mode. Many critics called Metro: Last Light one of the best games of 2013.
