I don't know why, but I just didn't.
I loved Metro: Last Light and 2033, and was expecting to enjoy this game too. But after only a few sessions of an hour or two each, I put this game away and haven't touched it since.
Exodus still nails the atmosphere of a Metro game, but I feel the semi open ended levels and focus on exteriors was a bold deviation from it's predecessors that didn't work at all for me. It feels totally out of character. I appreciate them trying to inovate, and even with that it could still be a fun game. Yet, I haven't had the motivation to give it another try.
It's a bizzare feeling because there is nothing obviously wrong with it. It had a more interesting story so far in my opinion. The new weapon mod system is cool. But I felt totally empty playing it, and it seems a handful of people share this feeling with me. Give it a go if you like what you see, but keep all of this in mind.
