Set in the shattered subway of a post apocalyptic Moscow, Metro 2033 is a story of intensive underground survival where the fate of mankind rests in your hands.

In 2013 the world was devastated by an apocalyptic event, annihilating almost all mankind and turning the earth's surface into a poisonous wasteland. A handful of survivors took refuge in the depths of the Moscow underground, and human civilization entered a new Dark Age.

The year is 2033. An entire generation has been born and raised underground, and their besieged Metro Station-Cities struggle for survival, with each other, and the mutant horrors that await outside.

You are Artyom, born in the last days before the fire, but raised Underground. Having never ventured beyond your Metro Station-City limits, one fateful event sparks a desperate mission to the heart of the Metro system, to warn the remnants of mankind of a terrible impending threat. Your journey takes you from the forgotten catacombs beneath the subway to the desolate wastelands above, where your actions will determine the fate of mankind.

  • Metro 2033 is a gripping, atmospheric first-person shooter experience powered by cutting edge technology to deliver incredible visuals
  • Witness the everyday horrors of a broken society living in constant fear
  • Brave the darkness of the tunnels, where mutants hunt their prey and ghostly spirits lurk
  • Explore the desolate city-surface, trusting your gas mask and rifle to protect you from a poisoned world and the creatures that roam there
  • Steel your nerve and prepare to face the terrors that await

This dropped through my letterbox yesterday and whilst I wasn't expecting that much from it, Im really pleased with Metro 2033. Based on a novel by a Russian author, it's set in a post apocalyptic world where people have had to move into Moscow's metro stations to survive. Don't be put off by the 'world's been destroyed' premise that is over used, this is the best game setting since Rapture, it really is that good. Strictly a single player experience, the graphics are decent and the story has really engrossed me. One thing I would say is that this is a very unforgiving game. Easy mode is what would be hard on other games. Regarding length, after about 7 hours I'd say I'm around half way through. So decent length. (Good replayability). The game goes with a rather unconventional route of ammo equalling currency. So to equip guns and so forth you need to dispense with bullets. It may sound strange, but it really works, making you wonder whether you really need a gun to progress or whether the extra ammo will really be the way to go. (Personally, I believe that you need to be conservative to enjoy success in this game). Another note, this is genuinely chilling, the best horror shooter game since condemned, better than FEAR. It doesn't really try to be a horror game but the monsters you fight and the fear of the unknown (the difficulty helps this) ramps the tension up. The tension and difficulty of the game makes it really rewarding and make you feel like you've been really smart when you achieve a victory. I can't really criticize this game particularly. The shooting isn't the best and if you're looking for a straight laced shoot 'em up this may not be for you. However, it's a minor gripe and it does eventually click. It very much feels like a pc game. It's a great game with a good setting and truly entertaining. That said, I haven't finished it yet, but it keeps getting better and I'm hoping there will be a sequel. Great game.

feels like this game was rushed because of god of war coming out it if they would have kept it under construction for a couple more months the enemys might not look like grey blobs, when the charcters talk there mouths might actually move in time with it. rent if you really want to play it but i would stay away.

In theory this game should have been great. BUT it isn't! The story is good but other than that there is so much negetives. How some people have mentioned this in the same breath as Fallout3 i just dont know.
The combat is wonky, its linear and repetitve, its hard to connect to the main character, it short and its all a bit dull.
One to avoid in my opinion.

 Damn fine game

This game is incredibly immersive. It doesn't really feel like Fallout to me, or S.T.A.L.K.E.R for that matter. Although this game does have similar concepts as the latter game (mostly because its Russian).

Graphics are excellent. The engine really reminds me of a higher quality version of The Chronicles Of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay and The Darkness, but better. Although some of the outdoor textures a bit to be desired, but then again you're not usually lingering around long enough to really pay attention since you're either too busy fending off goons/looting or finding your way to the next point.

Now, the ammo system. I've no gripes with it at all to be honest. Using dirty ammo really has no downside other then it takes a few more shots to down them. I've not actually used the Military grade ammo at all through my playthrough and just used it to buy things.

Regardless there's plenty of ammo laying around for every battle, you just cant full auto everyone all the time, or use the same gun constantly. You've gotta mix it up. Which is a good way of making you choose different guns to use in battles. Saying that, there's not really a lot of guns to choose from, and i find the later guns with scopes on them are quite pointless since most of the mutants and human enemies tend to run towards you.

The atmosphere is amazing, and the music is some of the best fitting music I've heard in a game in a long time. Its suits the atmosphere of this game so well. I found it really reminded me of the desperateness and terrible living conditions portrayed in the likes of the future war sequences in The Terminator.

If you love post-apocalyptic stories and settings, this game is a must buy man.
