Bought Division 2 since it was only 3 bucks. Easily the best 3 bucks I've ever spent. Just some quick impressions:

 

Game isn't that bad TBH. I would've paid 30 for it so getting it for 3 is a crazy good deal.

 

 Cover based shooters are just lame as hell now and this game doesn't change my mind on that, but this is a looter shooter before that. The game does a really good job of feeding you good gear but doesn't get too generous in order to keep you chasing the carrot.

 

The leveling process in this game has a really nice flow to it, probably one of the most pleasant leveling experiences I've had in years. 

 

Co-op is great. It's really easy to hop in and out which is a big deal for a game like this.

 

 The main missions so far have had some pretty solid level design. 

 

The world size feels perfect. Reminds me of Arkham City in the sense that they ignored scale and instead decided to jam pack it full with all kinds of stuff to do. I much prefer this approach, makes the map a lot more entertaining to explore because you're always finding something to do. There's really no lull.

I put like 20 hours into the game and I did enjoy it quite a bit . 3 bucks is a steal

i played through both of the Metro Exodus DLCs. The Two Colonels is fantastic from a storytelling perspective. The way it sets up the climax of the original game is very cool, and it has some of the best cutscene directing/editing in the series. That said the gameplay is pretty weak and actually kind of non existent. The 2nd DLC (Sam's Story) is more significant from a gameplay perspective and the story (while not amazing) is still fairly entertaining. Overall it was nice being back in this world. A year has passed but this game still has some top notch atmosphere.

So I finished Control, lmao, I still have a few side missions to clear to gain the platinum but idgaf anymore. The game had a few moments where it shined and I enjoyed it but overall, its misses the mark in every categories, if just barely. I wouldnt recommend the game to anyone.

I should give it another chance. For some reason, it didn’t connect with me (though I dug the first 2).

To me, the first 2 Metro games always felt like limited versions of the STALKER games which I loved. I couldn't shake the feeling that they were so close yet so far from nailing the vibe that I really liked about STALKER. Then with Exodus, they opened it up and made a post apocalyptic open world that finally evoked that same feeling I used to get when exploring the Chernobyl wasteland.

 

And the great thing is that it still has a lot of the tightly scripted and linear set pieces/missions that you'd see in the first 2 metros, they just happen to be separated by the open world hub areas. Its a really good blend of both. I honestly did not expect to like the game as much as I did considering how I was sort of lukewarm when it came to 2033 and Last Light.

Lol yeah . Fuck that game 

I liked the ashtray maze level, that one took me by surprise. Wished the whole game was that awesome.

 

The change in tone, the crazy perspective changing stage, just straight up linear action, and a great song popping out of nowhere. That was the single best thing about the game.

That level was fun to look at visually , but I wouldn't call it a maze . And it was basically just kill the same enemies over and over as the rest of the game

Yeah its surprising how ambitious it is, theres still so much stuff you haven't discovered in terms of mechanics and features.

 

The one negative thing I have to say about the game is that there are A LOT of boss battles and most of them aren't much fun.

That sucks about the boss bottles. The story so far and how its being told is entertaining.
