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 guess it's time to review Metro 2033 Redux. Let's give it a go ladies and gentlemen

- What is Metro Redux?
Well Metro Redux is a remastered version of the 2010 Metro 2033 and the 2013 Metro:Last Light!
Also , every of these games are based on the MASTERPIECE book saga called Metro ( Metro 2033, Metro 2034 and the latest Metro 2035 )
- The Story
It's the year 2012..the whole world is basically ♥♥♥♥ed up. there was a nuclear war..everything is destroyed! In Russia , 20,000 people survived the nuclear detonation by hiding in the underground Metro System of Moscow. And of course with Nuclear Detionation..usually comes Radiation! Many of the animals of the surface got mutated , and now they're dangerous creatures you will encounter both in metro and on the surface. Also worth mentioning that because of the radiation , you can't breath without a Gas Mask.
You play as Artyom , a 21 old Russian ( Yes the game takes place Russia ) who lives on the VDNKh station. This Station get's attacked multiple times by unknow creatures who easily slaughter every guard of the station. Artyom gets a visit from a Polis Ranger called Hunter , and then Hunter will give a mission to Artyom..the mission goal is : Reach Polis and try to help your home station survive.

-The Gameplay

Flawless. Amazing First Person shooter , the mechanics are really good! you can stealth in the game some parts , or you can just go guns blazing! You can hold three guns at once ( only two on Ranger Hardcore ) and that is amazing! Stealth is amazing , loved how you can knock out guards or just kill them. the game also has two playstyles called "Spartan" and "Survival". Spartan focuses on players who love guns blazing , and want to collect a lot of ammo! Survival focuses on players like myself , who rather sneak their way through when they have a chance! this whole playstyle thingy is amazing to have.

-The Graphics

The game looks AMAZING on Ultra settings! AMAZING. the shadows ..the characters..everything looks amazing! but when you get on the surface..man..one of the most beautiful games i every played.

- Positive Things :
- amazing and respectful re-creation of the 2010 game.
- Superb gameplay
- Different playstyles for different players
- The Story's differences from the book were clever! if you read the book and you come to play this game , there will be suprises since they changed a few things!
- Multiple Endings
- EXTREMELY good graphics

- Negative Things :
- None.

Final Verdict : 10/10. Amazing Game. TOTALLY worth full price. I also recommend the amazing books if you haven't already checked them. if you love the book or just love these Post-Apocalyptic games , this game is for you.

Better than ever. Upgraded graphics, fixed bugs and fixed "officially-not-bugs-just-features". The atmosphere is the same or even better. A must have to those who like shooters in a post-apocalyptic, depressing world. And don't forget to read the books!

I hadn't played a shooter with a good story since the Bioshock series. You can have a different experience of the game by choosing between survival and action approach. I only found it a bit short (around 8 hours) but you can get it almost free at the sales. Recommended

This game is one word "enjoyable",This game has tons of replay ability and are able to play the game exactly how you want it. You can choose to kill or spare that enemy,you can fight your way through or go the stealthy route,You can choose what your arsenal of a large selection of different weapons to choose from. You can choose to save or help someone or something,or leave them,you can choose a combat oriented game by choosing spartan mode,or you can go for full-out survival horror in survival difficulty. I really recommend this game,it is really fun and is enjoyable throughout the entire game I may be a bit biased on this but I found nothing wrong with this game it is that good.

This is a game that every FPS lover should play. The redux version improves the graphics even further in some areas, as if they weren't fantastic already! Some comparison videos show they reduced some of the textures in other areas, but the game still looks great. They have also introduced two different play styles, stealth or all out guns, you choose. I played the original Metro 2033 and got this on sale. This time I played ranger mode and really enjoyed it, no HUD makes it really immersive. I did not find it as difficult as I think it should have been. The human enemies don’t seem to hear you, even if you are right next to them. I could’ve sworn the original was more difficult. If you already own the original, I'm not really sure if this is worth it, but I don't regret it for a second. I just enjoyed playing it again, pros and cons aside. I might just have to play the original again to figure out what was different. :P

I'll be honest here. Despite having an already positive bias for this series (enjoyed both the games and the books. 2034 was actually the inspiration for me to learn Russian :V. Still rusty), I'll say that I do not think its worth to buy this and Last Light Redux (especially so) at full price for players who already played the non-Redux edition of these two games. Mostly because the changes aren't that big aside from the visuals (2033 is especially noticablily better and more stable compared to 2033). I'd suggest to buy this game at any price above 50% for players who have played the previous games. If you have the means and don't mind supporting the developers by paying the 50% price tag for both (like i did), then by all means get it, its a terrific experience.

Having said that, I do understand that revamping these two games isn't free and people need to feed their families and whatnot. I'm just saying that for those of us players who are tight on their budget but are very keen on playing the redux editions, just wait until there's a 66% or so sales. It's worth every penny.

Now to my personal opinion on Metro 2033 Redux.

The changes is impressive. Downright amazing to even the tiny changes they did. I won't spoil anything, but people who played the original 2033 will definately notice all these tiny changes and appericiate that. Visuals aside, I can tell alot of passion and effort went into creating 2033 Redux. It's from all these tiny changes and "secrets" that you can tell people enjoy doing the things they did. Here's to one certainly hoping to more games based on the Metro universe

This is a really fun game. It's dark. It's exhilarating. It's fast paced. It makes you think whether or not to save your precious ammunition. The story is so-so, but the collectibles give a lot of backstory which makes them fun to find and read. The characters are the only thing that turns me off from the game, most of them, anyways. The children in the game look like 6 year olds, but sound as if they're heavy smokers and in their mid thirties. It's kind of creepy. Some of the other voice actors are pretty bad as well. I think the only decent one is the main character. The game is good though, and definitely worth looking into.

Great reamke of 2033. So atmospheric and nice stealth fps. It make you think abut wolrd, and our future As Artyom you must survive in hostile radioactive world. You will meet lots of different monsters and people. Graphics is stunning. Lighting is beautiful. You can choose from many weapons and customize them! The game isn't long, but it doesn't matter.

Pros
  • Graphics
  • Atmosphere
  • Story
  • Stealth
  • Maps

Cons
  • Short (10-20hrs)

Overall
Very good and entertaining remake of one of the best amospheric post-apocalyptic game! I Recommend buy it with Metro: Last Light Redux !

A positive review with a major caveat: This is not quite the worthy spiritual sequel to STALKER that it is made out to be.

If you're coming from STALKER, as I am, prepare to be underwhelmed. The game is nowhere near as hard as it's made out to be. I played on hardest difficulty + Spartan + ranger mode and never had more trouble than an average map in STALKER (and to the degree it *is* hard it's usually due to poor design, such as sudden scripted rushes of enemies, or poor checkpoint placement). Anomalies are there, technically, but have little to do with gameplay. The maps are linear. The world is also unexpectedly bright--ambient light abounds and it's as if the developers couldn't hold themselves back from placing glowing mushrooms in every corridor. Consequently, though the game was certainly tense, I never felt afraid the way I would exploring a lab in STALKER.

Great game with a great story. In my personal opinion it has a special atmosphere through the whole game and this atmosphere is created by the massive attention to details that the developers has put into this piece of art. I suggest it playing a second time and not to...take the obvious choice when it come to dealing with problems inside the game
