"Worth a look"
4 stars"

Unfortunately this amazing game had no hype whatsoever. The storyline is GREAT, characters are OK, combat is thrilling but there are a few bad things about it. Firstly being stealthy in this game is like wearing a flashing pink strobe in a city center, people WILL notice you. Miss with one silent pistol shot and everyone knows where you are, even if they do drop for some reason the only effect the silencer seems to have is sound. It has a REALLY small replay value as depending on your choices you get a different ending etc. Anyway enough with the bad, Time for the good stuff.

If metro 2033 focuses on anything fully it would be atmosphere. The fact that they made the radioactive atmosphere a game play factor was amazing, but its not passive like Fallout 3. When you get to the surface or radiated tunnels you need to use your Gas Mask. While it is annoying that if the game swarms more than 12 howlers at you they rip through your mask (which only happens once or twice) it is good to see that they added it.

In the end it is a great adaption of a book by a Russian author, so I give it a 4.

"Interactive and Breathtaking. No wonder it went Classic"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

By far in my top 5 purchases since joining Mighty Ape. Metro 2033 is one of the most thought out and well executed games I've played in a very long time. With in game details such as having to pump your air compressed sniper rifle from having to check the different pockets of fallen foes for Ammo. I'm am in much anticipation for the sequel later this year and have no doubt it will take my breath away. It is a must have for any Gamer.

"Afraid of the dark"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Tense and atmospheric, solid story that sticks closley to the novel its based on, one of the major characters is the blackness allowing you to sink into the shadows to strike at your enemies or fear what other inhabitants are watching you from the dark corners of the metro. Lacks a multi player but makes up by being a gripping horror story

Description

“…a very worthwhile game for anyone craving a uniquely rewarding journey into man's dark future.” 7.5/10 – Gamespot

The whole world lies in ruins. Humanity is almost annihilated. Due to the high-level of radiation cities became unsuitable for living. Outside cities, as rumours say, there are endless burned out deserts and wilds of mutated forests.

Since the last plane took off the land more than twenty year has passed. The corroded railroads lead to nowhere. The air is silent, and the radiomen hear only the cheerless howls while million times tuning in frequencies on which broadcasted New-York, Paris, Tokyo and Buenos Aires before. Only twenty years has passed since IT happened. But human yielded the supremacy on Earth to new species. The mutated by radiation and other consequences of the happened creatures are more adapted to the changed world…

Artem, a young guy who lives in VDNH, is given a task – to reach the heart of the metro, the legendary Polis, in order to warn all people about the terrible danger and to ask for help. In hands of one man appears the destiny of VDNH, the destiny of the whole metro, and may be, the destiny of the whole humanity…

Features:

  • Location – post-apocalyptic Moscow, the life of humanity gleams in metro (subway) tunnels, and the stations turned into small states with different political regimes.
  • Variety of gameplay styles – possibility to play as a heavy strike fighter, as an inconspicuous killer.
  • A player, who attentively follows the events in the game world, will find out ways to influence the advance of the plot and may reach the non-standard end. Besides the basic plot, there is a variety of non-obligatory tasks.
  • In station-cities it is possible to meet as fighters, as peaceful citizens and the station lives its own life independent from player. Children run and play among dwellings, adults are busy with different businesses – women cook meals, sew; men have discussions, clean weapons, drink tea or home-brew, read books; old people seat near tents.
  • The high-level AI empowered to model the NPC behaviour in close combat similar to real people actions. The enemies may conduct simple and aimed fire, avoid line of fire, hide in covers, ambush and attack suddenly, call for help, and mention a character hidden in shadow.
  • A number of various anomalies: gravitation distortion, energy clot (looking at some of which the character may perish), intelligent immaterial images, which punish with death for any aggression at their presence and many other, the role of which will be discovered only before the game release.
  • Ammo-money. Fire off money or be economic, use tactics.

Variety of mini games.

Review by Gamespot

“…Metro 2033 is a well-paced shooter that will likely take you more than 10 hours to complete. It is punctuated by emotional and dramatic moments (a surprising encounter with a child, a few intense railcar sequences), though these aren't without their own idiosyncrasies (the immersion-busting "quickly tap x” prompt). Many elements of Metro 2033 aren't quite up to modern shooter standards, but taken as a whole, they come together nicely. The pervasive atmosphere is largely responsible for this cohesion, creating a grim, enthralling world that you feel compelled to explore. Though it is not without its perils, Metro 2033 is a very worthwhile game for anyone craving a uniquely rewarding journey into man's dark future." 7.5/10
