Metro 2033 was not as I expected, judging by the above trailer, I thought it would be more of a squadbased game, instead you are on your own for 85% of the game, killing hoards of people.

Instead of fighting aliens, mutants and ghosts as you are led to believe you fight against people for the vast majority of the game. I give the graphics 6/10, they are ok but far from perfect.

The game is a lot shorter than I expected and after you you have completed it there is nothing to do other than start all over again. After the last mission you are also left wondering what happened as the game doesn't show or tell you.

Poor show, not even worth the 9.99 I paid for it.

Yes, it's linear. Yes, it's hard but very satisfying.. Persevere, to the amazing climax, and experience probably the best (so far) single player experience on this console. After this you can play anything and win!

  A fantastic fps/survival horror hybrid

| | See all DChaundy's reviews (7)

Metro 2033 is one of the most unique and compelling shooters I've played on the Xbox 360. The visuals are strong, the shooting is solid, the story is captivating and the monster designs are original. It's more streamlined and dare I say linear than the open world setting of Fallout 3 but don't let that put you off. If you are a horror/shooter fan this may well be the game to tide you over this Summer.

  Not bad, but disapointing

| | See all Barbaroja's reviews (6)

Having read the book I basically bought the game after readings all sorts of reviews... because I couldn't help diving in the atmosphere. Wich, by the way, is really well recreated. So the idea is good but the development not so much. The game is too glitchy, it keeps you all the time under the impression of not being on complete control. I'm not talking about the weapons or their accuracy here... I'm talking about sometimes hitting with the weapon and sometimes shooting when you're in the dark without you not really controlling it, or picking items without having to press the button... The gameplay is extremely annoying and the controls don't help. It is also very hard, I mean, very hard sometimes, and ridiculously easy other times. I'm stuck in a fight with some guys you could technically avoid by crawling and beling stealthy but that's virtually impossible. Many times the feeling is you simply don't know what's going on. So... this would be a challenge for some, but in general I think it's a vastly improvable game, and the glithes can get really really annoying... specially when you're "saved" in a checkpoint in the middle of a fight when you're getting shot.

  Broken game

| | See all burgstar's reviews (38)

I can see why this game has attracted so many positive reviews. The setting is excellent, the graphics are good and the gameplay introduces survival horror to the first -person shooter: crawling around in a darkened subway tunnel between human and inhuman monsters with only a hand cranked torch and a few precious bullets brought back some great memories of resident evil. Unfortunately the game is totally and completely ruined by bugs. The graphics are glitchy and often seem to be about 1-2 seconds behind real time with lots of tearing when anything good happens. The worst bugs concern your inventory. A great point of this game is needing to find air filters to survive - a real shame then if you have a bug that stops you picking them up. There are a lot of other serious bugs too - you can easily google them so you don't have to take my word for it. All in all a great chance absolutely ruined by rushing the product.

PS - One issue anyone can fault is the posters and copies everywhere for the book the game is based on - it detracts from the realism a lot. Also the dialogue is English. The the game is set in Russia but is for a western audience so - fair enough - the characters speak English ... but why hilariously broken English?

  What a Story, But It has it's Glitches

| | See all MrTjgale's reviews (4)

Firstly, this game has an excellent story, world disaster, mistrust in your fellow humans and other beings... all along with unique and scary monsters. The graphics are good, nothing to complain about... HOWEVER... the game does have its glitches, and unfortunatly they are noticable unlike some other games. Some of these include;

Characters standing and moving, however their gun is frozen in place

Story characters stuck in place (only happened at 1 stage for me)

At busy points in the game, (full of action), monsters sometimes glitch and get stuck in walls or on debris.

But don't let that put you off! It is well worth buying and playing! You'll be hooked!

  better than expected

| | See all mrtweak's reviews (4)

Honestly, some elements of the game are less than perfect: you will find some glitches, and the impact of weapons seems random. Still I couldn't stop playing it - while normally not playing more than1-2 hours - because I got absorbed by the story and above all the excellent atmosphere.
