I go into every game without any pre-conceived notion of what I think they should be. Other reviewers whining about Stalker this... Fallout that... what a crock. Each game should stand on it's own and this one does. Sure it isn't perfect. I have only played a couple I thought were, so it's easy to want to set the bar to high. However, this is an extremely engrossing game. The graphics are awesome. Also, I guess if you are using an old Atari you might have problems running it. I am having no problem playing it on a 3 year old 2.3GHz dual core with 4GB Memory and a GTX280 card. I have the game set a step below the highest settings allowed on at 28" monitor at 1920x1200. The graphics on this are quite simply, very immersive and extremely well done. You really feel like you are in the subways.
Next, the complaints that it is linear are tiresome also. Some people like that style of play. Crysis is probably one of the best games ever made. However, it is very linear. Pesonally, I don't always want a game with a bunch of side missions that add little to the story, if only to make the game longer. Borderlands, Fallout3, Stalker, and games like Oblivion bored me to tears because of this, while others love that style of game. To each their own I say.
Lastly, everyone likes different things. When I was younger I like the games with big inventories, having to sleep to heal, collecting stuff, building levels and so forth. However, as I've gotten older I just want to play a great game. The simple FPS where you arm yourself and go to work kind of games are my choice now.Read more ›
Overall, however, the adventure, the story, the thrill of the action, and the amazing graphics and world that has been developed, is well worth $40.00. I've already played it twice, once on each skill level, and now I'm going to play it on the hardest.

I can run the game at 1280x1024 on DX10 "very high" settings and it runs great. It is a BIT strange to not be able to tweak individual settings (you have to select "low, med, high..." etc, but it doesn't bug me that much.
If you were a fan of the really cool, atmospheric underground parts in Shadow of Chernobyl, you will love this game. It is a very immersive single-player experience. The character models are top-notch, the textures look great and the lighting and graphical effects are spot-on. The English dialogue is very good. I haven't finished the story yet, but so far it has been great as well.
I think you'll find that a lot of people complaining about this game will whine about it feeling like a console port, or they'll complain about Steam for some weird reason, but I had zero problems getting this game up and running, and I don't think my hardware is stellar.
Bottom line: If the game looks like fun to you and you're okay with the fact that it's a somewhat demanding game hardware wise and that there is no multiplayer, you will love this game. And remember, when you see a 1-star review of the game that doesn't actually talk about the game content itself...take it with a grain of salt :-).
The unfortunate is that Metro is pretty much over once you have played through it once as the game has little to offer in new situations. The script is written and you just have to get through the next door from which there is no in game return. You might find a couple of new prizes your second time through or get through a zone in total stealth mode where the last time you killed every thing that moved, but its the same experience, the characters move exactly the same every time and there are few if any new outcomes. Even if you change the difficulty mode the only difference I noticed is that you die easier.
Stalker on the other hand has silly monsters especially the retarded Zombies.. but the weapons are more fun as you can upgrade them. You can upgrade your armor as well and attach things you find to it to simulate new experiences. You can change the order of you missions, who you kill (including friendlies), and can get chased all the way back to a safe zone where they still kill you by surprise inside. Also you can download a free update for Stalker C.O.P. and have new experiences. The end of Stalker has a monolog that changes depending on who you let live or if you skip missions.Read more ›
