First the play is very aggressive as popular plays are to cut off people's track or help it reach a premature end by diverting it to the nearest station. Call me a marshmallow (soft) but I like a game which allows the players to look back on the experience and feel some sense of achievement or success. With Metro I have seen more people look back with a disgruntled look on their face as they reflect on the 'screwage' they were subjected to.
If aggression is your thing then Metro may be for you.
For this reason I like to play it with kids or people who will not play overly aggressively to thwart another's plans. It ends up being a more enjoyable game that way. Basically, I think if you can avoid 2 tile tracks that end in neighboring stations, it's much friendlier.
