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 Redux isn't just a HD re-release or a sad cash grab by the new publisher. They totally rebuilt the original metro 2033 and vastly improved everything. The game is much more optimised and runs smoother, so if your PC could run the original you'll be able to run this without any problems despite the vastly improved graphics. The game looks and feels better, 4A games have taken full advantage of the new metro last light engine to make metro 2033 look like a 2014 release, adding improved lighting and weather effects. And also rebuilding the game technically by putting in the metro last light combat system, weapon customisation, sound effects and AI, as well as adding immersive features like wiping your gas mask to get rid of dirt or blood. the developers have also added new content such as extra levels, weapons and secret areas. One thing thet bothered me about the original is that they reused alot of the same character models, even on the main characters, this is now fixed in the redux version. character models now look more individual and unique and you are unlikely to run into the same looking character twice. overall I would recommend the upgrade. this totally feels like a new game.

Bourbon now actively moves around the first human enemy area. I didn't expect it and threw a knife at him, thinking he was one of the bandits. Now my knife is stuck in his head and he isn't giving it back. I really needed this knife.

Such is life in the metro.

10/10, would cheeki breeki again.

I played through the original Metro 2033 back in August of 2014 and I absolutely loved it. However, I personally purchased Metro 2033 Redux for some easy achievements and a what once was an extremely rare badge. That's not to say that I didn't enjoy what I experienced, but I feel there's a lot to praise and criticize 4A Games on with this product.

Let's start off the major additions to Metro 2033 Redux mentioned in trailers, shall we?

● The ability to wipe your mask. Just as in Metro: Last Light, you can now wipe your mask as many times as you like! Don't forget to wipe it 20 times when you first start the game for an easy achievement!

● Plenty of new locations to discover in each chapter. These locations consist of military grade ammunition, dirary pages, and keys to safes that contain a considerable amount of resources.

● Arytom's Diary pages to find and collect. You're probably thinking "Oh great, more things to collect!" but if you're anything like me, you like to learn everything you can about the products you purchase.

● Enhanced weather, lighting and ecosystem. This time around Metro 2033 Redux is much brighter, has creatures as in Metro: Last Light and throughout the game has changes in weather. The creatures consist of spiders, baby shrimp and what I believe to be mutated birds.

Features of Metro 2033 Redux worth praising:

● The ability to approach a combat situation in multiple ways. Sneaking, knock out kills, use of silencers, and using the darkness to sneak up on enemies. It may seem silly and common knowledge but many games in the current gaming industry fail to deliver anything more than just a watered down run and gun experience.

● The A.I. combat subroutines are irritating yet innovative. If you're approaching a combat situation guns blazing be prepard for some jumpy, trigger happy enemies.

● The kills saving system. In the original Metro 2033 kills were only saved in a consecutive playthrough. This time around, you can reload checkpoints to accumulate kills for revolvers, shotguns, assault rifles, pneumatic weapons, etc.

● No unsynced voice and facial animations. Although a little wonky, the facial animations and voice are never unsynced from start to finish. That's certainly saying something considering the majority of the games created today have the issue with unsynced facial animations.

● No 'in-game' store. The majority of developers feel the need to put a direct link to their game's downloadable content within the game itself. This angers some consumers while ruining the immersion they're trying to create.

Aspects of Metro 2033 Redux worth criticizing:

● The so called "seamless" transition between chapters always isn't as smooth as they've lead you to believe. As I played through 2033 Redux I recall 4A Games tying at least 3 chapters together. In the chapter Driving to Sparta the screen goes black at one point and you're teleported to the above ground ranger base.

● The retexturing of the majority of NPCs within the game. While they may have retextured many of the non-player characters within the game, that certianly does not mean they did it for the better. In some cases, the animations look signifigantly worse than the original Metro 2033. Personally, I would rather have a higher resolution, more detailed NPC than a completely different version of one.

● Non-existant NPC eye tracking. I never realized how important eye tracking was before I played the Metro series. All of the NPCs in Metro 2033 Redux feel as if they're staring off into space, unaware of their surroundings or the player.

● Copy and paste menus and user interface. The menu and user interface of Metro 2033 Redux is the exact menu and user interface that Metro: Last Light used back in 2013.

Overall, I enjoyed this game and would absolutely recommend it if the price is right.

Looks good, runs better then the originial. Plays better too. I mean, if you never played the original, then play it now. If you have, this one is worth it for $12.50, if for nothing else but a better looking and feeling game. Also, a few notes-First, the game is a lot lighter than the original. I like it, as it makes it a lot less "Scary" but some may hate it. The new faces look really whimpy aswell, so...
All the guns from LL are here, along with with the weapon mods.
Even on the lowest diffulty,and playing on the action mode, ammo is still rare. A+ for that.
Apparently, some people are having problems launching it, but i'm not.
Still an amazing game, by the way

It's the original Metro...but shinier! Better! More expanded!

While it's not as dark (I mean that literally, not in the metaphorical sense), Redux has a *lot* of improvements over the original

+ Roaming above ground looks a hell of a lot better, and prettier to boot. Plus, the Metro itself looks great!
+ Two game modes - Survival (Classic) and Spartan (Last Light-style), with Ranger mode built in!
+ Expanded areas to explore, so wandering off into that dimly lit side tunnel is great for finding environmental stories and loot
+ Safes give you a nice loot based incentive to explore out of the way areas for their keys

But, there are a few detractors

-/+ Stealth knockouts break the game like in Last Light. You'll be overflowing with ammo and medkits, but that does make the inevitable mutant hordes easier
- A bunch of bugs, mostly related to climbable surfaces. Hopping into broken down trains, climbing out of holes in the hub stations, etc
- If you somehow alert anyone, everyone will know exactly where you are regardless, and will hunt you down like a guided missile.

All in all, a very well put together update for Metro, worth the cash!

EDIT: Looking back, this review is kinda stupid and doesn't explain much about the game. Don't take it too seriously.

This is a review for both Metro 2033, and Metro: Last Light. The two games are so similer that I see no need to make a review for both.

Anyway, this is easily one of, if not THE best game I have ever played. Everything about it is just amazing.

The monsters are both powerful and terrifying, and no matter how many times I play, I never get bored of fighting them. Every fight is different.

The gunplay feels amazing. Even the weakest weapons you start with feel very powerful and fun to use. Every kill is satisfying.

The stealth mechanic is, again, one of the best I've seen in a game. The AI is quite smart. For instance, if you walk over broken glass, or bump a can, they will hear you and start searching for you. You will also have to shoot out lights occasionally to sneak past some areas.

And the graphics... Holy crap does this game look amazing. I'd say it's on par with Crysis 3. You can clearly see just how much work they put into the graphics and style of this game. Everything is detailed to the max.

As for the difficulty, hardest game I've ever played. Which is a good thing. On the hardest difficulty, (Ranger Hardcore) almost everything will one shot you, and resources are scarce. You really have to pay attention if you want to survive.

There's plenty of easier difficulty options available, of course. But the only real way to play this game is on Ranger Hardcore. It just feels right for a game like this.

And that's all I have to say. For only $24.99, (or $49.99 for both games) it's definitely worth it. Both games will give you around 30-50 hours of gameplay for your first playthrough.

This is also my first try at making a serious review for a game. I normally don't bother with stuff like this, but this game is just so good that I really wanted to review it.

What can I say about this game! It’s just awesome in every way. If you have played the original and loved it before, then you are going to love this Redux edition even more. I decided to jump straight in and play Hardcore Survival Mode, and boy did I enjoy it. The story is really good and gameplay is great. In survival mode it is every bullet and gas mask counts. Because of this you tend to explore that little more for loot and find some wicked little areas with goodies and graphically good looking atmospheric environments. The sound just makes it all the more real feel.

Best played in the dark with no lights on, and a nice ice cold beer to the side of you! :-)

Since finishing it I just want to crack on and play it again before delving into Last Light Redux. Second replay value is great!

I really recommend you invest and have a bash.

9.5/10 Awesome!

Metro 2033 is a survival horror game released in 2010, based off of the novel of the same name. It was well received by critics, and a sequel was released a few years later. Metro Last Light brought an improved engine, as well as many optimisations. The goal of Metro Redux is to graphically improve Metro 2033 while giving the gameplay enhancements provided by 2033's sequel. I say that Redux does it's job very well.

Everything has been changed in Redux; 4A has rebuilt 2033 from the ground up in the newest version of the 4A engine, and it shows. The intro videos and main menu screens have been redone, and the graphics options are the same as Last Light. It is also worth noting that the new engine brings the optimisations that Last Light had, so Metro Redux will run well and still look beautiful on old-ish or mid-tier rigs (I can run almost all settings on max, including PhysX, on 1 GTX 770).

When starting the game for the first time, you are given the option to choose your play style. Spartan gives you the action filled style that Last Light has, while still maintaining the basic survival horror feel. Survival stays true to 2033 in that ammo is limited, and stealth and ammo conservation are vital. Both modes can also be combined with Ranger, which limits the HUD - this makes the player more observant, while increasing difficulty and immersion. Note that there is no "Easy" mode, at least from what I have seen. I chose to play on Spartan Normal (action-feel, while keeping the HUD). All modes include the more forgiving stealth gameplay from Last Light, so stealth is a bit easier and more realistic.

The story remains the same, but there are improvements over the original, besides the graphics. Notes are in the world, which expand the story further. I found myself exploring areas looking for notes. The music has been improved, although it is a bit loud for my taste (this can probably be changed in a menu). The sound design is good, but I feel it could have been improved. YMMV, however.

To close, I wholeheartedly recommend Metro 2033 Redux to people who enjoy FPS games with tight controls and excellent mechanics. Although there are minor issues (some bad sound design, lack of an Easy mode), the graphics, optimisations, and added gameplay make this an easy recommendation over the original. If you are new to the Metro games, be sure to check out Last Light Redux.

Metro 2033 was definitely showing its age by the time the redux came out. I don't have the original on steam, just on console. It most likely looks much better on pc.

The Redux isn't just another "HD Retexture" of 2033; it is a complete rebuild of it on the Metro:LL engine. The enhancements made are obvious when you first boot up the game, but I'll do my best to break it down.


Compared to the orignal's graphics, this is a no contest. The skyboxes are better, the lighting is better, and the textures are better. I think there were a few textures that looked a bit low resolution, but it wasn't a bother. Overall, they more than hold their own against other recent games. 8.5/10


The sounds in Metro Redux are excellent. Everything from ambient noise to the combat sounds were spot on. The ambient noise constantly kept me on edge, and did a great job in adding to the immersion. Personally, I think this is the strongest aspect of the game. 10/10


To avoid giving away spoilers, I'm going to keep this brief. It doesn't exactly follow the book, but it is still good, and believable in the context of the game. 8.5/10


Probably the worst part of the game. The AI is pretty bad, especially the friendly AI. It will not see enemies even when they are right in front of it, The enemy AI is also disappointing. It seems to ignore obvious signs of the player's presence, and has poor detection capabilities. Once combat starts, it still appears to have trouble finding good ways to engage the player. It blindly runs out of cover, straight into your line of fire, or ends up getting stuck in a neat single-file line as it approaches from a distance. However, it does have its moments, and can put up a serious challenge, especially at higher difficulties. 6.5/10

Overall, this game is solid, and well worth the money. If you enjoyed the original, I think you will enjoy this.

On High settings, I get 60 fps all of the time.
On Very High settings, I get 60 fps but when I walk into a specific type of bush I drop to 30-40 frames.

Bush game too strong. Would walk into a bush again.


EDIT: Seeing that this review has got a lot more views than I expected, I suppose I should actually give a little more to my opinion on the game but I'll keep it short (and yes, what I said above is true). I will say that this game is fantastic. If you liked the original, you will love this. If you haven't played the series, this is an excellent jumping in point. The game improves upon the original in so many ways taking a lot from Last Light. The graphic fidelity of this game is amazing, if you have the PC to run this game on max, do it. The different game options are great: Normal, Hardcore, Ranger (no hud or hints) and Ranger Hardcore. This is one of the most immersive games you will ever play, especially on hardcore ranger mode. The only complaints that I do have about this game is the facial animations. They aren't an improvement over the original and still look very weak. If you like survival games (some might call this a survival horror game, I would call it a survival game with horror elements), get this game.

I figured with the Redux version that 4A games would bring us the game that they wanted to originally put out along with all of the enhancements, lessons learned over the years and new features their engine could bring to the table. Boy, this was not what I was expecting...

It’s surprising how many bugs still made it through to release. I encountered my fair share and also read about the others encountered on the forums. For example, in the original Metro 2033, the “Trolley Combat” level had a game-breaking bug where the scripted sequence could get completely broken. This required you to restart the level as you couldn’t progress forward anymore. Now, take the Redux version in the same level. There is a bug where if you entered the previous scripted sequence before the level with your night vision goggles on, the game will force them on before you enter the cart, making it nigh-impossible to kill enemies. Only solution to fixing this? Restarting the entire previous level all over and making certain to not put the night vision goggles on before the scripted sequence that causes the bug. I am baffled how these bugs (among others, as the same script-breaking bug apparently exists in Trolley Combat. Nice.) made it to release. Especially when it involves the same level that was reported to be very buggy the first go around.

Sure, I’ll give them some credit. The graphical atmosphere is improved with more special effects and post-apocalyptic textures compared to the original. That’s pretty easy to see from the original with entire rooms made to look more decrepit and affected by the nuclear fallout. Texture texture quality is also significantly better than before. Facial animations don’t look so odd and dated either, though at times the characters look...look like they were transplanted poorly into new bodies. The Physics engine is also better and far less sensitive compared to its predecessor. UI also looks more modern and up-to-date though it gives less information than the previous game did. Not sure how they managed to pull that off.

I do disagree with their assertion that the lighting system, AI and weapon handling is better. Mutants feel far more bullet-spongy (even at Ranger difficulty levels) and there’s been some reports that hit-boxes aren’t as good as they used to be. I noticed how headshots at point blank range with a shotgun wouldn't kill the easier mutants. How it handles secondary weapons is a 180 in the wrong direction. Instead of your grenades, knives and other related weapons being easily accessible from keys 6-9, they stow them all away in a single key that is changed by holding tab and moving your mouse in the direction of the weapon you want to use. What. The. Heck. Doing this during combat is overly difficult. This is a consolitis change and I absolutely hate it. Additionally, the AI seems extremely random and unfocused in its thinking. I’ll have some attempts at the level where the AI will completely ignore me and go for the other NPCs around me. Other attempts will result in the entire horde of mutants zerging and overwhelming me. It feels extremely schizophrenic and if this is truly Last Light’s AI engine, I’m not looking forward to playing the sequel.

The stealth system is probably the worst change of the bunch. Instead of having a nuanced three-level stealth system, that at least gives you a chance to recover from almost being seen, it throws it all out for a binary in-stealth and no-stealth system. One little touch of light on you and you will be immediately spotted by the AI. Due to this, it seems like they had to dumb down the AI so that even if a human guard is five inches from your face, they won’t see you so long as you’re in the dark. It’s hilarious and sad at the same time.

This remake/redux is an avoid. If you want to experience the best of Metro 2033, the original is the better way to go. The graphics are better, sure, I can agree to that and the optimization is much better than the original. I can definitely agree with that assertion. But the downgraded stealth system, same amount (if not possibly more?) of bugs, less enjoyable combat and quirkyness caused by the port to the new engine doesn’t make it worth it. There are a other changes that I didn't talk about that don't fit well or bring the game down. I was willing to overlook some of these problems until I ran into the game crashing bugs. At which point, I figured I was better off investing my time into finishing the original rather than dealing with this port that could have used a few more rounds of QA and playtesting.

This is easily one of the best games ever made (In my opinion)
Gonna tell everything step by step so u can understand this bloom and immersive post apocalyptic game.
NOTE That this is the remake of the orginial version with whole new gameplay and grapchics engine, so don't mistake this with the original Metro 2033.
(There might be some spoilers here so a little warning)


+ It's absolutley stunning, i can't describe how much work they putted in the visuals, they are top notch of the best looking i have seen in video game.
+ The lightining and pshyx in this game is gorgues, every light is just incredible.
+ Faces are absolute improvment form previuos (Metro 2033 Original) u can see every expression when they talk angry face becomes angry, when they'r happy they face becomes happy its perfect.
+ If u look closely u can see visuals everywhere absolutley everywhere if playing on max, even in little things witch is a BIG PLUS.
+ The game is perfectly optimized so that low end pc's can easly run this on low with atleast 50fps witch is a BIG PLUS also.


+ Best improvments from old game (Metro 2033 Original) The weapons now feel powerfull handmade, u can finnaly feel like ur hitting and enemy.
+ Monsters feels like real monsters, they don't attack on site they howl to call they'r brothers, and at some places it's really hard to fight them!
+ The mask physicx is perfect, u get into water, water splashes on ur mask, u hit enemy near u the blood splahes on ur mask, even when u fell somewhere the dirt fells on ur mask, even flies sometimes gets on it witch make's it an immresive fighting and experencie (u can wipe off all that ♥♥♥♥ by pressing G)
+ Love how at some levels u can explore even if its fps survival shooter, u still get chance to walk around find something intresting.

Weapons (Arsenal):

+ Every weapon looks like it's handcrated because thats how it would be in nuclear war, (execpt for kalash and shotgun)
+ Loved how they added custimization for weapons from Metro Last Light


+ Spartan difficulty is defently for normal players who likes to complete the game in the fast way, witch i loved becasue its perfect for the first playthgrouh
+ Survival mode is absolutley perfect, ammo is hard to find enemies are way tougher and wont die from one bullet
+ If u put in on rager hardcore, the game is insane, u'l get angry at a LOT of places, ammo is insanly hard to find so every bullet counts, that makes u think more about sutiation and walk past or stealth it not go gunz blazing, enemies are way thougher and smarter.

(A lot of people praise this game for it's atmosphere so i guess you know about it but i still will talk about it)

+ This is the game superior part, the game absolutley nails nuclear war atmosphere, this is in my opinion the only game that really looked like after nuclear bomb, even better than S.T.A.L.K.E.R, realistic destroyed building, distance buildings witch u even can see detail in the distance!
+ Metro tunnels are perfect, loads of cob webs, squeky sounds, spooky and really spooky atmosphere of it.
+ Even when u go to cities u feel depressed of how sad this is, people crying, humans sick, it really feels like a nuclear situation (Though at some palces still people laugh a bit drinking and stuff like that witch its nice how people still can carry on and have fun even in the baddest situations)

Main Charecter (Artoym):

+ I like the charecter in my opion, brave strong, patient and doesn't lose hope in everything.
- Didin't like how he can only talk in loading screens, but he doesn't talk in game, witch makes some akward conversations.
- He's doesn't really sound like russian, and apart that all of the people (NPCS) in game doesn't really sound russian. (Reccomended playing this in Russian of course if u understand it)


+ For me story is good, nuclear war, finding D6, senind message to certain charecters. Its not that perfect but its playable and u get deep into it really fast. Loved how u can save the dark ones from getting visions, u can activate alternete "good ending" by interacting with certain things in game (u'l find loads of videos in youtube)

Thats all i can say about this game, as i said its my favorite game off all times.
It Had a lot of pluses, and only 2 minuses.
So i easily reccomend this game to player's who love survival story driven games.

And the future--our future--stretches before us like an endless Metro tunnel.

It's the same game with upgraded textures, lighting, and graphics. I have noticed the AI has improved somewhat from the original game, although it's still not the best. If you don't own the original Metro 2033 but are still interested in the game, I'd reccomend getting the Redux version. If you do in fact have the original game and you enjoyed playing it several times over, I would buy it. Otherwise, it's essentially 97% the same game as the original.

If you haven’t played the original Metro 2033 then you will probably enjoy this Redux. However anyone who’s played the original will be disappointed in this Redux. The Redux incorporates all the bad parts of Last Light and turns this into a more linear shooter game that the original.

First of all, as pointed out by others, the lighting system is different. The original colouring was mostly in brown tones and bathed in a soft yellow light which is what one would expect in tunnels where the artificial light sources are mainly incandescent and gas lights which tend to produce a strong yellow caste. This yellow caste created a sombre mood and helped to provide a more intimate relationship between Artyom and his environment. Redux uses Last Light’s colouring scheme which creates an unnatural “blue” light as if the tunnels were bathed, not in incandescent lights, but harsh LED lights. This blue caste looks unnatural and unconvincing and makes everything appear slightly brighter and therefore lessens the mood established in the original. Also, similar to Last Light, is an over sharpening of all detail which tends to “delineate” everything making objects seem less natural.

The gameplay was too similar to Last Light’s gameplay, and to me, Last Light played more like Call of Duty game than a Metro 2033 game. If anybody thought that the original Metro 2033 was too linear then the Redux is even worse. You will notice this most when you are topside on the surface. The Winged Demons play a much bigger role in the Redux and are constantly swooping overhead. They are used to keep you on very short leash meaning you have to get from point A to point B quickly and I found that I couldn’t really explore the surface as much as I wanted to because of them. It seemed to me that there was less exploring and stealth encouraged in this game and more fighting like Last Light (I played in Survival mode which was suppose to play like the original Metro 2033 so that was a surprise).

The character models are redone and they seem to have more of the plastic, mannequin look that the characters had in Last Light. The Khan character is the Last Light version (the goofy Pirates of the Caribbean wannabe) not the original designed character. Unfortunate, the superb, original voice for Artyom has been replaced with the same crappy, read directly from the script, Last Light version. The Nosalises are the same hairy ones from Last Light and they always looked goofy to me. Also making an appearance in the Redux are the sonic emitting Winged Nosalis from Last Light.

On the plus side the Redux is not entirely a scene for scene remake, there are minor differences and you will be exploring a few expanded areas. Many of the original areas are slightly redone (landscape slightly different and rooms and buildings slight different) usually incorporating more detail or a redesign from the original. So even if you recall the original quite well there will be some variation here and there.

Is the redux worth the purchase? Because I owned the original I was able to pre-order the Redux at half price, so it was worth it. If you never played the original the Redux is worth the full price. There’s a lot of gameplay for your money and the graphics are top notch. Besides nobody creates apocalyptic games like the Ukrainians (i.e. Metro 2033, Last Light and the S.T.A.K.L.E.R. series).
