Gamers beware: Rahul is a crackhead. ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ and ‘The Witcher 3’ are two of his favorite video games.
Adding some semi-open world action to the narrative oriented experience of the previous two games creates an enticing experience that gamers around the world have appreciated.
However, Exodus has only one flaw: an insufficient quantity. Here are several games that are similar to Metro Exodus as you wait for the next installment in this post-apocalyptic series.
The first two Metro games aren’t on this list because they’re clear possibilities for anyone looking for similar games; nevertheless, before we get into the nitty gritty, Here is the list, so let’s start with that.
1. ‘Games Like Metro Exodus’
It’s difficult to put into words what makes this work of art so special. As a first-person shooter, it appears to be a simple run and gun with little depth. You get a completely new sense after spending at least a few hours there, like if you’ve seen a work of art.
RPGs, on the other hand, are frequently considered “masterpieces” because they tend to hit all the right notes. In order to strike a reasonable equilibrium between plot and violence, it is nearly impossible. Where do you draw the line between unfettered exploration and pushing the tale forward? It’s a lot of work.
In contrast, the developer, Irrational Games, has methodically balanced the two aspects. As soon as you step foot in Columbia’s universe, you’ll find it difficult to put the controller down as you take in its breathtaking splendor. While gunplay has always been a strong suit of the Bioshock series, the most recent iteration raises the bar even farther. It doesn’t have a lot of options, but it always encourages you to try new things at your own risk.
Bioshock Infinite is your best bet if you’re searching for a story-driven game like Metro.Exodus.
2. ‘Crysis 3’
However groundbreaking or demanding the next Crysis installment may be, it remains one of gaming’s most visually stunning releases to date. The best use of CryEngine has been made to produce stunning scenes with lush, dangerous jungles.
After entering Crysis 3’s semi-open world, you can’t help but take in its stunning visuals. As the game develops, you’ll be able to use a wide array of weaponry. Having fun with this first-person shooter necessitates experimenting with various fighting combinations.
Crysis 2’s gun models have been reskinned and given new names, which is a shame because the guns look great. The game’s gameplay, on the other hand, more than makes up for its lack of innovation.
3. ‘Max Payne 3’
With Max Payne 3, you aren’t slaying mutants or saving the planet; you are simply trying to keep your own skin intact. A hired gun, a 40-year-old alcoholic who has given up on life, is the focus of the plot. Redeeming himself through cheap thrills is his ultimate goal. For every life saved, he is entrusted with taking a few hundred or more away from the people he encounters on his excursions. Oh, what a pity!
I regret that this game didn’t do well enough to merit a sequel. There has been no official statement from Rockstar or its parent company, 2K Games, as yet, but it’s clear that they had high hopes for this third-person shooter.
Unfortunately, Max Payne 3 will likely be the last game in this series. No more Max stories are expected to come our way. This is a fun game. Take a moment to appreciate it. It’s time for a rerun.
4. ‘Dead Space 3’
Dead Space 3 is one of the few games to include a vast and frightening world. With a captivating plot, you’ll join forces with a friend for the first time in co-op to explore the unknown and dangerous regions of space, a vast and merciless realm where everything is out to kill you.
In spite of the story’s shaky conclusion, you’ll be kept riveted to your seat by the game’s nail-biting fighting.
As a result of the inclusion of co-op, this series has been elevated from niche horror to mainstream success, and for the better. You still feel the fear and paranoia, but it’s less potent when someone else is there to help.
Dead Space 3 begins slowly, but as the story shifts gears, it’s an exhilarating experience.
Dishonored 2 would have made the cut if it weren’t for the PC version’s sluggishness. That is not the case, regrettably. In terms of gameplay and performance, though, the first game in the series is the best of the bunch.
With this stealth adventure, players can explore the plot in any way they like. If you don’t want to kill anyone, the whole thing can be finished. I’ve heard it’s doable, but it’s really difficult to pull off.
As Corvo Attano, a renowned assassin, you are on a journey to revenge the murder of your queen. He’s an unstoppable force for his foes, a master of both stealth and hand-to-hand fighting. Corvo uses Dishonored as an opportunity to show off his abilities. However, your fate is dependent on the decisions you make.
6. ‘S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat’
Pripyat’s predecessor, Clear Sky, was a bit of a letdown due to the developers’ overzealous experimentation. In addition, the presentation seemed rushed.
In Pripyat, the latest and most likely final installment in the STALKER series, I’m relieved to find that most of my gripes with the prior games have been addressed. After years of semi-open world design, the game has adopted full open world design, abandoning its predecessors. Wonderful, free-flowing gameplay is the product of an unconventional open-world concept in this excellent game.
You’ll be put to the test on every level in this grueling first-person shooter. In every moment of frustration, know that things will get better after the first few hours of the process. That’s not the case. When you die so frequently, you grow used to it and learn from it.
7. ‘Alien: Isolation’
It is 15 years after the original film that Isolation takes place. You take on the role of Amanda, a space engineer on a quest to learn more about the mysterious disappearance of her mother’s spacecraft. When she arrives upon a barren space metropolis, things take a turn for the worst. The station, which has been abandoned for some time, catches her eye as she investigates its mysteries.
Running and hiding, like a hide-and-seek game, will be your primary mode of transportation in this game. Except that this time, it’s deadly!
Your only adversary, the alien, cannot be defeated. It doesn’t matter if you burn it or shoot it; it’s going to return stronger than before. There is only one method to get rid of that dreadful critter, and it requires a lot of patience and time. In the beginning, expect to die a lot.
8. ‘Half-Life 2’
The second episode of the Half Life series, in particular, is a riveting experience. Upon entering the story’s world, you’re immediately enthralled.
However, despite the old gameplay and graphics, the game still packs a powerful impact. The popularity of this game made Valve a phenomenon and a force to be reckoned with.
Number 3 is a no-no for Valve. Team Fortress 2, Dota 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Portal 2, and this first-person shooter have never progressed above the second number.
Despite the high demand, Half Life 3 is unlikely to ever come to fruition. As could be expected, Valve has remained silent on the matter. Even after more than a decade since the final release of Half Life 2, the first-person shooter’s benchmark warrants a second look.
9. ‘Spec Ops: The Line’
The Line is able to accomplish something that not many other FPS titles can. Firefights have meaning because of its narratives. While the combat isn’t horrible, the game’s most compelling feature is its emotional arc. There will be a lot of action, but you’ll only remember the story. Combat, on the other hand, is largely uninspiring. Fortunately, it’s held together by a well-developed plot with plenty of twists and turns.
You’ll have to make a number of decisions as you try to save Dubai. However, it rarely feels like a hassle. Every decision you make, no matter how insignificant, will have an impact on your gameplay. Make sure you’re prepared for a gloomy and self-reflective journey. No matter how you play, Walker, the protagonist, will die. All of us in the squad will soon be swept away by the impending calamity.
10. ‘Doom (Reboot)’
There is a basic multi player mode in Doom, but because we’re talking about single player games like Metro Exodus, I will not cover it.
This ID Software relaunch has panache on the single-player front. You begin with a pistol and work your way up to more powerful and cumbersome weapons by shooting and kicking your way through the levels. Once you get over the game’s brief stupidity, Doom is a visually stunning and narratively driven shooter that you’ll fall in love with.
Doom, on the other hand, may become tedious and pointless if you let it. Closed doors and constrained encounters with no room for improvisation are the norm. If you want to have any fun with it, you’ll have to become used to the way it is made to play.
It’s hard to deny that the series’ trademark fast-paced shooting continues to be one of its most compelling features. It’s never been so much fun to blast off the ugliest of the ugliest! It’s one of the best single-player shooters on the market right now, despite its repetitive nature.
