Product Description

Metro 2033 is a single player first-person shooter (fps) that incorporates role-playing game (rpg) elements. Based on the best selling novel of the same name by dmitry a. Glukhovsky it tells the story of humanitys struggle for survival in the forgotten tunnels of moscows underground subway system following a devastating nuclear war. Features include mission play combining a unique mix of firearm and melee combat an economy revolving around ammo and items and an experience system which takes each of your actions into account leading to a variety of possible alternate endings and extended replay value. story the apocalypse came by our own making with a single blinding flash followed by a firestorm of sheer flame. It took just an hour and a half to wipe out 3.5 billion people and 10000 years of civilization plunging humanity into a hopeless dark age. In the aftermath survivors in moscow moved underground and slowly organized into small socially and politically independent tribes clustered around the citys deep subway stations. The young man artyom is among them. A member of the first generation of children raised in the subterranean world following the apocalypse he has only the vaguest recollections of life above ground and contact with other humans beyond those that inhabit his local station "exhibition" but he will have to face new experiences with both if humanity is to survive. Mutated beasts known as "dark ones" are spreading throughout the isolated stations of the metro and artyom has been chosen as the messenger to spread the news of the new peril. gameplay metro 2033 is a single player fps that also incorporates rpg elements. Action played out in the role of young artyom is mission-based and because the game is based on the glukhovsky novel the storyline veers away from the anti-russian stance that is often seen in post-apocalyptic stories and video games. Here the russian characters are humanity and fight every day against the terrors t...

I think the title says it all. Metro 2033 is one of the best shooters ever made. It's also one of the best shooters nobody played. THQ, the publishers of Metro 2033, have gone on record a number of times apologizing for the lack of advertising for the game. It has become such a cult hit since its release, but it could have been a smashing success if THQ had just advertised the game before throwing it on store shelves. Knowing that they have a hit franchise on their hands with Metro 2033, THQ has since began throwing money at the sequel, Metro: Last Light, which is due in early 2013.

Metro 2033 is one of those games that only comes around once every few years. It doesn't try and be anything else. It doesn't try and play like Call of Duty. It doesn't try to be open world like Fallout. It doesn't try to shoehorn mechanics that don't belong only so they can have pretty looking bullet points on the back of the box. Metro 2033 is its own thing, and it succeeds because of it.

It has enough atmosphere to fill a dozen games. One thing everyone who plays it can agree on is that Metro 2033 will suck you in and never let you go through the 15 hour campaign. It builds a world around you that is so life like, so real, that you can't help but be in awe. In that world you will find a ton of variety in the places you visit, and the things you do. At its heart, Metro 2033 is a first person shooter. However, it is much more than that. It is a survival horror game. It is an action game. It is an RPG of sorts. It is a story driven adventure.

I am being vague on specifics here, because everything is a spoiler. The story and atmosphere is so downright brilliant that if I mention any specifics, it will ruin that part of the game for you. Just know that this isn't your typical shooter.

Bought this game for $10.00 on xbox live a week ago and enjoyed it very much. It played smoothly, graphics and atmosphere were great, story line sucks you right in. Audio was good except the gun fire could have sounded a little better other than that I think this game is a great buy. I will definitely be getting the next one.

Received my game in California fairly quick. In half the time they said I would. Luckily the PAL version works on NTSC consoles. Only negative was a little broken piece from inside the case, but that's not there fault, USPS must've mistreated it. Other than that 5/5 outstanding already beat the game and it was pretty good specially for the price.

I am a huge fan of the Metro 2033 lore, I own a copy of the first English edition of the book, the game on Xbox and PC, and Metro: Last Light on PC. They are all very well-made games, and 2033 is probably the biggest sleeper hit of this console generation. I'll give a pretty thorough, yet straightforward review of the game.

Pros:
-Excellent storyline. If you've read the book, it's similar. Some of the plot elements of the book are shared with the game. If you haven't read the book, please invest in a copy. It's well worth it. (But that's another story for another day, no pun intended.)
-Top notch graphics. Even for a title released in 2010. On PC, the graphics are better but don't run as smooth (and I have a very nice gaming setup.) Shadows, lighting, textures, etc. It's all there.
-Atmosphere. At times, the game has such a deep atmosphere you'd swear you were sucked in to its post-nuclear world. The atmosphere is very spooky. There are a couple jump-scares in the game, without revealing too much. The eeriness of a recreated post-nuclear Moscow is especially exemplified when your character travels to the surface later in the story. I wish there was more exploration on the surface, it gave a really big sense of hostility and isolation.
-Voice acting. Everybody has a Russian accent. What's not to love?
-Guns. The guns are very unique and the selection isn't huge, but in real life after the apocalypse I doubt there would be very many just left lying around.
-Character development. Although Artyom, the main character, doesn't speak outside of the loading screens, you can feel his character develop.
-Multiple endings. Based on several actions in the game, you can either have a good ending or bad ending.

If you enjoy Fallout, you will probably like metro. Only drawback is even with the subtle game hints "on", navigating certain levels is still sometimes difficult.

I originally passed by this game when it came out as there were several other games that I was playing and I typically don't go for shooters as I am not that good at them. The story did pique my interest though and I filed it away under 'something to buy when it got cheaper'. When the sequel was announced I decided that I would finally pick this one up and give it a go. I am glad that I did. The story was pretty compelling and unique and the developers did a good job rendering a post-apocalyptic landscape to immerse myself in. I also liked the fact that the story was centered in Russia as it added an interesting narrative into a fairly crowded body of post-apocalyptic works and it worked for me. There are some game play elements and unique choices to make that could add a bit of play time to the game and I may go back into it at some point to play again. I'm pretty certain that I will pick up the sequel, "Last Light" when it comes out instead of waiting for the discount as I am curious to see where they go with a sequel.
