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?

I went the opposite way and played metro last light first, You would think that it would foreshadow the whole plot of the game. Yes some of it but not all. Metro 2033 had a great in depth story. It just lacks character build up but meh, who really cares about that? Other than not knowing much about your character metro succeeds to deliver in keeping me entertained through the whole thing. If your not the "horror" type of person and are wondering if this game is scary, I will tell you no. The game is not scary, the only time I jumped was the libary level, The libary level will be scary if you do not do it right. But aside from it there are a just a smudge of glitches through the whole thing, Like monsters who dont move, Mosnters that you killed will still move but wont do damage, ETC. The whole glitch thing wont really bother your experience though. Before you play here are some tips 1. Dont take your time on the surface, if your filters run out you will have to restart the whole level or maybe even go back to the previous level just to get filters. 2. If you run out of ammo, RUN. 3. Whenever you see a shop buy filters and ammo as abundance of them are hard to find, and no this game is not open world.

I rate it 9/10

One of the best post-apocalyptic singleplayer games out there and a MUST play! The story is just awesome and it is easy to follow and the game has the right balance of singleplayer-story and action-packed FPS.

Very interesting plot (from a great book) and eerie atmosphere combined with traditional FPS mechanics along the lines of Medal Of Honor and Call Of Duty: Brothers In Arms.

Bought the game originally on Xbox 360 and couldn't stomach the poor quality/game design. This redux version actually makes the world of a difference to the game look and experience.

The thing that makes the game replayable is the atmosphere. It has a fresh approach to dealing with darkness and isolation from the rest of humanity that have taken refuge with you in the Russian metro underground. You'll find yourself on edge during the missions where stealth is crucial.

For the most immersive approach play the game with Ukrainian/Russian audio and English subtitles.

7/10.

Metro 2033 Redux is probably (next to Bioshock) one of the best story-driven shooters I've played so far. I'm mostly not the guy who jumps on games with lots of darkness and monsters, but surely am glad I took the risk to give it a go. The story is superb, the (few) characters have quite some depth and the moral choices are a nice bonus to the whole package. Next to being a fps-shooter there is a lot of variety in the chapters and the developers where nice enough to let the player decide if you give it a classic shooter or a legit stealth approach. For example, do you want to feel safe in the dark tunnels and spent tons of scarce ammo to kill a giant beast or do you rather sneak past it not knowing if it's breathing in your neck when you'd look over your shoulders. Excellent game, definitely recommended.

Remember, do NOT eat the yellow snow!

And never, ever, venture out on the surface without your gas mask and filters.

This game is really amazing! Metro games are one of the best I have ever played! I am big fan!
I have finished it two times! Or seven if you count the other five times I've finished the original Metro 2033.
My review here: http://steamcommunity.com/id/kosta9/recommended/43110

The history is so immersive, I felt in Artyom's boots, and it makes you want to play more and more everytime.
In comparison to the original metro 2033 game, this one has a lot more content, weapons, new areas to explore, new achievements, and awesome graphics!

Being able to fully convert the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ gun into somthing a little reliable is awesome XD, and also Scopes, put a scope on everything, exept granades :( plox fix hahaha.

Jokes aside, I love this game!

this game is a 11/10, must play! Go grab your copy!

If you don't care or just don't pay too much attention to all that"We atomized Heaven, Hell and Purgatory, so when a soul leaves the body it has nowhere to go, and remains here, in the Metro"mumbo jumbo, and your game runs smoothly and doesn't crash, then you'll get to see a very special detail...

Atmosphere... no. The Atmosphere.

Moments when you're alone in the tunnels surrounded by mutants or when you're outside, in the cold dead city, looking for ammo: these moments are what makes this game so ♥♥♥♥ing good.

I'm usually not a fan of HD repacks but they did it right with this game. Lets you play as survivor or spartan and then you can choose the difficulty from there as well. Overall solid game, story rich and atmospheric but some of the level designs could use improvement. Very linear and at times the combat is more of a chore to get to the next sequence. Not as much stealth as Last light but still enjoyable.

I discovered this game in a dark time of my life. Ironically, playing as Artyom in this very dark game filled with personal struggle, really resonated with me.

Sorry for being emotional. But anyway, this game is freaking awesome. Maybe I AM just too emotional, but this game literally played with my heart strings the whole time, giving me almost painful feelings from utter sadness, to relief, to pounding fear, to goofy humor.

I think it is rare that a game carries with it such a depth, capable of arousing deep and lasting emotions/memories in the player (at least this one). Not only is the story amazing and based on a novel, but nearly all the locations in the game are spot on to real life Russia (seriously, google map that sheeet).

The dialogue in this game is absolutely hilarious too, one of my personal favorites happening when you make a sound during stealth, and the enemy soldier says, "♥♥♥♥, what was that? Ah, must be hearing things. Too many shrooms after all." You really learn a lot by listening and exploring in this game, in fact, it's nearly crucial. It really feels like you are exploring the real world of the Metro, as you never see the end of the world in-game. I personally found this to be incredibly immersive.

I don't want to spoil anything, but know that if you embark on this journey known as Metro 2033/Last Light, you won't be able to shake its story easily. At the end of Last Light I literally bawled my eyes out at the ending, because the weight of the game's story and memories crashed down on me and I was struck with the heroism of the protagonist.

Wow, sorry for waxing poetic, just get this game. You get too throw knives at people, knock them out, kill mutants, get drunk, pursue enemies, explore creepy post-apocalyptic worlds, and save humanity. Do yourself a favor and try this game out and be immersed in the Metro.
