I liked the character Anna. When she travels with Artoyom to the surface, I perceived her as both a Ranger and survivor. I never expected her to become the sexual object of a man. However, after escaping from a destroyed metro station, she wants lovemaking with Artoyom, a man who she deemed as not in her league. Why? Because the world is going to end and she is scared. Huh? This is a world where everday could be the last for a person. There are many ways to die in the Metro and on the surface. Wouldn't she want to fight alongside her fellow Rangers and with her father for the defense of D6?
Though I like most of the elements for this game, and I can tolerate the game-breaking bugs, and I intend to buy Metro Redux for the next generation, I find the depiction of Anna and other women characters perplexing and cringe-worthy.
I hate games that force you to watch & go through stories before you can actually start playing and then throughout it. It may have been good but I lost my patience after watching way too many clips before I was able to shoot anything.
