Mac OS X El Capitan and Metro 2033 Redux

For Mac OS users with Metro 2033 Redux
Mac owners with NVIDIA hardware may encounter performance issues with Metro 2033 Redux on the new OS X El Capitan, which is releasing soon.

Until there are new drivers available for NVIDIA hardware on El Capitan, we advise not upgrading OS X just yet if you are still playing Metro Redux. Hopefully new drivers will be available soon.

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?

*EDIT*
This game gave me insomnia

Shoot bandits, shoot nazis, shoot communists, shoot monsters, shoot demons, shoot tenticle plants, shoot tanks. Get scared by mutant spiders, webs, shadows, ghosts and ghost demon things. Make freinds and watch them die, blow up stuff, slip into puddles of radiation, run out of ammo, sell ammo for ammo, buy ammo with ammo, buy guns with ammo, sell guns for ammo, get scared by the ghost monster again, see ghosts in the tunnels running past you randomly, fall through floors, get dragged through walls by "Librarians", get shot by nazis, get shot by communists, get shot by bandits, travel all over the Moscow underground, cant decide whats worse: the tunnels with tunnel monsters or the outside with giant flying bat monsters, this game makes me scared of the dark, dont follow instructions from the charcters and get rekt Khan:"Go over to those pipes and listen, but dont stay there too long" *Goes over to pipes and hears sounds from 20 years ago including laughing and screaming, 10 seconds in my character gets attacked by his own imagination or something* Most of the game includes the side character having to do something and then leaving you to do something dangerous or spooky by yourself; "Oh yea I need to go do something thats not really important so you go on ahead through this underground tunnel full of corpses, ghosts, jump scares and monsters" 10/10 Heart attack simulator

Metro 2033 is a fantastic horror survival shooter.
its probably one of the most intense singleplayer game I´ve ever played for example when you get attacked by 10 mutants at the same time you have only 1 mag left and you screen is filled with blood from your killed enemies, Its ♥♥♥♥ing awesome in different words :) you should play it fore its amazing gun mechanics, the atmospheric and all the different characters and mutants

9/10 for a ♥♥♥♥ing awesome game!

A great update over the original and definitely the better of the two Redux games.

Graphics and gameplay have remained very similar to the original version. The real changes can be seen with updated models for characters and weapons, and a few gameplay features that were added in Last Light. Some of these features include but are not limited to a nicer HUD and more effective nightvision.

The two added difficulty modes (Survivor and Spartan) are also worth mentioning because they provide more re-playability over the original 4. In fact I recommend just playing the game twice on these two modes because they are vastly different.

Not really worth it unless you're a die hard fan of the series but still a noticeable enhancement over the original. I strongly recommend playing this version if you haven't played the original.

The best version of one of the best shooters I have ever played. This version upgrades an already good looking game, adds the gameplay improvements from Last Light, and cleans up a bunch of bugs and gameplay weaknesses.

Metro 2033 was an ugly game, full of bugs and game breaking glitches, but that added to its low budget charm. It was tense, gritty and immersive and had a whole lot of character. Redux makes the game beautiful, fixes those bugs and I haven't ran into a single game breaking glitch.

As someone who's beaten the original 2033 multiple times, I can say Redux is worth a shot if it's on sale. It's the same as the first game at its core but it does have numerous changes. The best changes being that the textures don't look so muddy and awful, the character models are much better and there are more than five of them this time around. Extra weapons and attachments which were in Last Light have also been added to the game, along with more songs for the soundtrack. The biggest flaw Redux has which the original does not is the stealth however. 2033 was incredibly broken when it came to stealth, enemies could spot you on the other side of a corridor if you so much as stepped an inch out of the shadows; they'd sometimes detect you when you haven't even done anything and immediately everyone within a 10 mile radius would be pumping lead into you. It was unforgiving, frustrating but it made beating every stealth section even better. To Redux's credit it tries to fix this by copying the stealth of Last Light, which has the opposite problem in that it's far too easy. You can walk right up to enemies, even bump into them, and they won't notice you until you fire, walk infront of them or are in the radius of a light source. There isn't a whole lot of challenge to being stealthy with one or two exceptions.

The difficulty is still high in every other aspect however. Gunfights on Ranger mode may as well have a leaderboard to see who can last the longest when not behind cover because it's essentially instakill. Like in the original 2033, this works wonderfully for encounters with human enemies but the game becomes unbareable when you're fighting 7 or 8 Nosalises at once, or having to deal with a bunch of Watchers where they essentially teleport to you and swipe attack. This was most noticeable in Hole Station when fighting Lurkers who have a graphical glitch where they merge into uneven floors, making it impossible to time a counter to their jump attacks. Not ashamed to admit I couldn't deal with it and dropped to a lower difficulty for the sake of my sanity.

The best part of the game remains entirely intact however. It's one of the most atmospheric games I've ever played. The Great Library is an incredibly tense and horrifying setting, if a game was made based entirely on the Depository level then it would easily rival the likes of Alien: Isolation. Librarians are one of the most terrifying enemies to deal with, and in Redux they are completely revamped aesthetically and it adds to their impact so much that it makes going back to Hole station on Ranger mode not seem so bad. The story stays quite true to the book also, of course you couldn't adapt the book entirely but it does a great job.
