About This Game

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 the 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. But what if the real threat comes from within?

Metro 2033 is an awesome game. It has great looking, well optimized graphics, an interesting story, and fun, addicting gameplay. The game can be completed in a short time, but with two different playstyle options, it has replay value too.

This game is a must-buy if you like story driven (the story is from a wonderful novel) post-apocalyptic games (with an added element of mild horror). Plus theres added bonus of the crazy fourth reich (Nazi's) in the tunnels and many other hostilities.

The Library Level is also very iconic - you will never forget it if you play it.

Pros:
*Guns are decent (you can't shoot long range accurately with shotgun for ex + you can modify them with things such as silencer or laser sight which have negative and positive consequences)
*Ammo conservation is important - you can't just blind spray.
*Story is truly immersing.
*Environment and music/ambient sounds are great.
*Stealth system is arguably decent.

Cons:
*Wish it was longer than about 11-12 hours that it takes to finish it.
*Compass is very clumsy takes hours to look at, plus you can by accident light your lighter which is frustrating if you were trying to stealth around.
*Trying to change a gas-mask filter in the middle of an extended combat is annoying as you can't shoot for about 5 seconds as you change it - and if you don't change it you die.
*Not having a manual save is slightly annoying if you urgently have to go somewhere, or as in the librarian level if you want to save every tiny second of progress so as to not repeat it :)

Overall: 9/10 and a must play.

Pretty mediocre first person shooter. Good visuals, interesting story (though a bit predictable), decent upgrading mechanics, but the rail shooter portion of the game gets really stale and frustrating at times. Honestly, I'm not sure why any FPS type game really thinks rail shooters are good gameplay mechanics, they never usually pave out well. 6 out of 10.

The Redux is basically just Metro 2033 but with much better optimization.
There are some other changes as well, such as the watch having the Last Light blue bar of visibility instead of the original Metro 2033 3 light system and the presence of a melee button instead of a seperate knife weapon.

Metro 2033 is a very enjoyable game based off of a book by the same name. Story is great, atmosphere is great, gameplay is fun, and the stealth works well enough. Includes the Ranger difficulty modes, Steam trading cards, and achievements.

It took me about 10 hours to finish the game my first playthrough, and I intend to complete it in Ranger Hardcore as well in the future. I would definitely recommend giving it a try if you're interested in a sort of survival horror/action game.

What a great game!!! The concept, the story, the gameplay everything seems just so right!
The song at the start screen is always a relaxing moment and makes me want to play this game even more.
Like most games the story is very predictable but the metro 2033 story totaly not.
Some people are whining about having too less filters or ammo but i never had this problem! :p
Metro is no rushing francise it's all about exploring en gathering supplies, keep this in mind and you will love this game!

So if you ask me:

- EVERYTHING!

CONS:
- Did i even write CONS in a metro review?

First off all this game looks amazing! but you have to be able to run it with ssao x2 or else it looks blurry. With that said gameplay is fun and exciting. Although sometimes i had a hard time finding out what to do and when to buy gas mask filters. I realy enjoyd this game and its cool storyline. searching for bullets along the way realy gives the feeling that the world went to sh*t add to that bullets are like money in this game. you can also choose to shoot those "millitary" ammo but that would mean that money litteraly goes up in flames. (the rounds are incindiary : p )

Pros:
Very good storytelling
Amazing graphics
Always filled with action
Requires thinking and tactics
horror feels real
RUSSIAN ACCENTS

Cons:
Throws hordes of enemys a bit to much
Sometimes i can get stuck and the person with me just looks around

WARNING: Metro is a slight horror game with some aspects that creep me out, so if you can handle a game like fallout or fnaf then this is fine.

Awesome! FPS with a great story-line, and very atmospheric environment. Explore!

Yes, like most modern solo FPS stories, it is goal-based, but not so linear that it feels like the usual cutscene-kill-cutscene-kill-... of games like COD. Take your time, explore, and talk to everyone. You can even go back, to a point, in the maps. Tons of side-areas to explore... if you wish.

If you just want a straight 3-hour FPS playthrough, then this is not for you. I've spent 70 hours or so on it, and am not done. Very replayable!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH IT FEELS SO OFF
I HATE THIS......... well, just a bit
Let me start off by saying that I've played the original Metro 2033
and loved it a bunch. Can't say I do for the Redux of it though.

There are some really good things that the Redux has done
such as:

-Adding the ability to knock out enemies instead of murdering them
-Fixed bugs that led to me teleporting out of the map
-I can no longer climb up walls like spiderman
-Redone maps giving more areas to explore
-Slightly less clunky movement
-Allows you to pick either Spartan mode(shooty shooty bang bang)
or Survival (Less supplies and encourages careful gameplay)

But oh here are some of the things I dislike:
-New voice actor (not big a deal but I miss the old one)
-REALLY bright lights, they're blinding me
-Unreliable stealth (Easier but way more obnoxious)
-Removed the ability to manually equip throwing knives, grenades,
and your stabbing knife
-Hit detection can really suck

Now let me share some of my thoughts

1.Removed the ability to manually equip items

Okay so this to me is only annoying on a personal level.
In the original you had to manually equip them meaning
it was much more reliable and went through a LOT faster.
"Wait but doesn't having it assigned to a single button
make it more convenient?" Well, it should, but the problem here
is that you have to select which one you want to throw from
a wheel, which can lead to you sometimes throwing a grenade
at an enemy when you wanted a knife. But that's just me being
dumb, the real kicker is that they take longer to actually deploy.
I remember facing hordes of nosalises on the original Metro
just by using throwing knives on Ranger Hardcore with no problems.
For here though, the delay on top of the disgusting hit detection
makes it absolute hell for me to do. I HATE IT I HATE IT I HATE IT

2.Unreliable Stealth.
Okay so what do I mean by this? For the Redux it uses the stealth
mechanic Last Light has which essentially turns enemies blind as
long as you're in the dark. You'll have a light on your watch to
indicate whether or not you're visible. So how is that unreliable then?
Well, the lighting is actually to blame on this one.
It can be really hard to determine sometimes what counts as
the darkness. At times when you are clearly in a lighted area
the light doesn't glow and you remain peachy, but the exact opposite
can also happen where you're in complete darkness but somehow
the light is on and you are visible. The original Metro's stealth was
way better and you also had the option of buying a stealth suit
or a heavy suit sometime in the game.

3. Added ability to knock out opponents.
THIS IS AMAZING. In the original Metro no matter how hard I tried
to be good I always got the Ranger ending because of how many people
I killed by punching them. WELL NO LONGER! In the Redux punching
people will instead cause a proper knockout leading to no deaths and
a happier tomorrow.

So that's about it for my take on it. Should you buy it?
Well, all of my hatred for this, it was more because I've experienced
the original and have had a much better time playing it.
The Redux is still a solid game though and if this is your first time playing
Metro games, go for it.

All the things I got bothered with shouldn't be a problem for you
and you might have an easier time getting used to them than me.
Pick it up on a sale or something and I guarantee you'll have an
enjoyable time playing Metro 2033

Metro 2033 Redux improves upon the original 2033 in many ways. I couldn't even finish the original game so finally getting to experience this gem is great. I highly recommend this guide if you're someone who is particular about FOV and Mouse acceleration in games. Once you get the kinks worked out, this game is easily one of the best linear first person shooters since Half-Life 2.

I have been a fan of the series for a long time, and to see the original story remade in a game, in my opinion, better than the original is a nice addition to the series.

The game plays smoothly and looks good graphicly, even at low visual settings. There are barely any bugs or glitches (only one in my first playthrough). You can get immersed real easy, especially in the ranger modes. The game gives you a choice of either stealth, full on attack, or both, which are very satisfying if done successfully. The weapon customization is easy and intriguing, with the modifications suiting one's preferred playstyle. The linear story is still the grand satire of the original with a lot of replayability. My only complaint is that some of my favorite lines from the orignal were changed very slightly and lost the humorous affect.

While some may think it is the same game as the original but with better graphics, they would be wrong. The game is not entirely different, but there are new experiences, new or changed spoken lines, etc.. Some lines that I have memorized from replaying the orignal so much have changed. The voice and model of the male child changed too, along with the models of Khan, Ulman, and Miller to the Last Light models. There are many more that I have noticed but do not want to spoil or did not notice at all.

The story is exactly the same as the original game, but some chapters are a little longer or have no seperate loading screens like some did in the original. The installation of the journal entries into the game adds a whole lot of lore and satire into the game. Also, some mutants from Last Light are added in, such as the spiders.

A seasoned Metro fan and players new to the series who are into the FPS genre will appriciate this game, especially ones who like a good politcial satire and are into philosophy in general.

First off, this is a fantastic game.
The apocalyptic world of a Russian subway system combined with the hardcore general lack of HUD and health indicators make it a distinct, fun, challenging, dark, and scary experience. It has combinations of stealth and fighting, with many diverse monsters to fight. Weapons are varied and modifieable, voice acting is good, graphics are fantastic, and the settings and situations are unique.
This game is quite an experience and definitely deserves a recommendation.

I Played the original version on Xbox 360 and I was scared, possibly because im a wimp, bt i overly enjoyed this game. MY current runthrough of Redux has my heart pounding and begging for more. The Ui and systems from Last light and updated mechanics just make if feel like a whole new game. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an FPS Horror in a Post apocolyptic world. 10/10

Based on the novel by Dmitry Glukhovsky, this FPS is filled with intense action, a story that sucks you in, and a little strategy. The action is fueled by your encounters with both beasts and humans, and your weapons are varied. It takes a little strategy to make sure you have enough ammo, the right guns for the job, and you reload at the optimal moment. The story is about post-apocolyptic Russia and has some decent horror elements. I'm always looking for single-player campaigns that'll drag me in and are lots of fun now adays, and this fit the bill. Look out for deep discounts on the game or the bundle, and snatch it up immediately!

Cons:
-Bad acting/ Bad Ai animation ( in some cases)
This is the only significant enough problem I noticed while playing.
Pros:
-Good atmosphere
-Takes strategy to plan bullet placement and conserve supplies
- Not just a shoot em up
- Has a decent storyline

Overall this is one of my favorite games, I originally played this on Xbox 360. When I bought this I was pleasantly surprised about the improvements to the graphics and overall gameplay. I would suggest anyone to buy this as long as they don't mind some poor voice acting and sometimes funky Ai. Everything else is awesome. If you're into the first person shooter's them you would like this game.

A decent shooter in an interesting setting. I hated how stealth was handled but it's completely optional, you don't really need to max your (invisible) karma points but they change things a bit - I don't want to spoil what exactly. Fans enjoy both effects though, so play as you enjoy the game the most. The characters weren't all that fleshed out, with the possible exception of the few main ones, but the awesome environments made up for it. Get it at full price if a postapocalyptic Moscow interests you, at a discount if you just want a story driven shooter.

Original Review for non-Redux version

It is not a long game but that is not a flaw in my eyes. The game is based on a Russian short novel, which I have not yet read, but the quality of its content is evident in this adaptation. One of Metro's greatest draws is the atmosphere. (Protip: Play using Russian spoken language with English text.) This is one of those games that can be held up as an example that video games are an art, just like movies, books, or music.

Gameplay itself is fairly no-frills FPS. No traces of RPG elements here to foster Completionism. As such, replayability factor for this game is analogous to re-readability for a book: It will be entirely determined by how well you personally liked it and wish to experience it again. This game is also similar to a book in that the narrative doesn't really change in any way from playthrough to playthough. The game is almost entirely linear. The only split comes at the very end when you can choose between two different endings. (Only one of which is canon.)

Review of Redux version

Besides the graphical improvements the biggest changes would be the altered diary text and slightly altered missions. Honestly, as a whole I have to say that I like the original better. The new diary text is peppered with spelling errors and I can't even say the content of the writing is really an improvement over the original.

On the plus side, the gameplay mechanics have been updated to Last Light levels so that you can now knock out and silently melee kill human enemies whereas in the original the melee attack was always noisy.
