EB's Owen Hibbert writes, "It would be impossible to choose between either of the Metro games, as both of them are so very dear to me. Without a single doubt Metro speaks to me in a language few games do. After my initial introduction to the Metro universe years ago, I was stunned at how much the world had sucked me in to its lore and story. Artyom (the protagonist) became not just a character I was controlling, but I very much embodied him. Strolling about the metro was an incredible experience and one I doubt I will ever forget, because post apocalyptic Moscow looked so amazing."
