the respawn wasnt so annoying, what was annyoing was that the missions were ALWAYS on the oposite side of where you got it from, mission quest give is NE ? enjoy going SW, and vice versa, got tiring really fast, i enjoyed much more attacking camps but never finished because of this

FC3 and FC4 were great fun. FC5 sucked in my opinion. It's not just the story either. All the guns aee basically the same. There is no point to unlocking any new weapons. It could have been great if they did it right. So will take a hard pass on FC5.5 New Dawn.

Metro Exodus on the other hand...go get it. Stop complaining about Epic store. This is a classic game. Its one of the all time greats in my opinion. Have played about 2 hours so far but I am loving it.

Metro : Exodus is getting better reviews on PC. %83, compared to %77 on console.

Metro :Exodus reviews


You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking

Metro Exodus was ok, just ok.

I love the world and the atmosphere of the Metro games, but the play mechanics are meh, and the many scripted action sequences are annoying.

IMO any developer not named Bethesda Softworks could do a better job of living up to the source material.

Well, despite the stupid move with Steam/Epic I, well, got the game somehow wink

And honestly: It's February and this might be game of the year for me. Especially if they release some nice juicy DLCs with additional large levels.

They really did almost everything right here - judging at least by the first third. There's stuff in I would like to have in every other shooter.

I’ll buy it when it goes on Steam. I have plenty of games right now that keep me busy.

Let's just say I got a legal key, but there's no Epic Launcher on my PC. wink

I'll rebuy it oin GOG later I guess, in a year or two. The main downside to this game is that it makes the old Metro titles look incomplete by comparison, and it totally nuked Far Cry New Dawn which I also tried. In fact it nukes a lot of other shooters, which is a bit like what Witcher 3 did to RPGs for me. On the upside when I upgrade my 1080ti in a year or two I'll have extra currently unused GFX options and difficulty levels to replay.

Far Cry New Dawn is pretty straight forward to me. If you liked Far Cry 5, you will like New Dawn. If you hated FC 5 then you'll hate New Dawn. It's more of the same with just a different story and characters.

I'm actually surprised how bad FC New Dawn looks (at least to my eyes). The geometry of most buildings and even the rocky cliffs is so "blocky" and rectangular, the animations of the people very off. Yes, it's a budget title, but they reused a lot of assets so that doesn't excuse it. I decided to replay FC4 instead...
