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?

Librarians no longer dies from a bunch of arrows, facial animation look strange, also absolutely unnecessary new voices (in Russian), so 0/10, actually. Still a good game though. Redux is less bugged and contains nice features from LL, but for immersion I recommend playing original

Probably one of the very few games that the story actually gripped me. you get into a world knowing nothing and you have to figure things out yourself. i really felt sad when characters died instead of me, i was so immeresed in their world.

Game play= flawless.
Story= gripping
Characters= felt like real people


10/10 great game would play many more times

This game has a story that is hard to follow, and I'm not sure if it has one at all. The difficulty can be absolutely crushing, and it often forces you into situations that you are simply not equipped for. I even had to start over an entire chapter due to a game-breaking bug that caused it to crash when I loaded my save.

And I loved every second of it.

This game may be the most immersive, atmospheric, downright terrifying games I've ever played. The sound design is flawless. Every step, every noise had me in genuine fear for what would come next. This game does not paint you as a hero, who can strike down hoards of enemiesin a single blow. If you don't conserve your ammo and be cautious, this game will beat your ♥♥♥. The combat is superb. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time, narrowly escaping death by the hand of creatures that were the stuff of nightmares.

I recommend this game to absolutely everybody who likes horror, atmospheric adventures, or wants to see if they like either of those things. 9/10

I got this game for something like $2.50 in the redux bundle.
I wanted to like this game so very badly but in the end, low production value and poor design just killed it for me. This game is almost exclusively a corridor shooter. That's not entirely unexpected seeing as this game is supposed to take place almost 100% in tunnels except this remains even when you go above ground on occasion. Now, I could forgive that if it were at least fun but as I said before, production value is low. Movement is slower than every game I've ever played except one, Front lines: Fuel of war, and gunplay is clumsy at best.
What prompted me to come here and write a bad review is a section in which you have to clear a nazi surface outpost. The outpost itself is so absolutely impossible to navigate that I could not take the game anymore. I don't mean that it's complex or that the enemies are tough, I just mean that there are jagged edges on the floor that kept catching my character and keeping me from moving. This happens nonstop in the more urban, non tunnel areas.
Besides this, there is also the problem that every weapon in this game fires nerf darts on a good day. Enemies and and yourself alike can eat entire magazines from the game's more powerful weapons, which again I would forgive if the game's lackluster weapon upgrade system allowed for damage buffs but of course, no it does not.
There is also the utterly useless inclusion of a stealth system to complain about. This game's level design does not allow for flanking or stealthy routes generally speaking. This means that you WILL have to gun down most of your enemies in a head-on fight, even when you start in stealth. Maybe you'll get an enemy or two without alerting the rest, but that's basically all you're going to get.
Overall, FPS games have been doing better than this game for longer than most of the people reading this review have been alive and your money would be much better spent on nearly any other FPS.

I first played this game at night with the sound turned up. My black cat sitting on my desk, watched as I crawled through black tunnels and stealthily made my way around enemy's. The story griped me as the hours ticked by and the plot became more then what I set out for. As the evening became early morning and my cat long since stalked off to sleep, I prowled the metro in search for the answers I needed to save my people.

I was afraid of every turn I took and jumped at every flickering shadow. The music played a haunting melody that only served to heighten the tension as I sat there in the dark, struggling to go on. I shivered in fear as I moved from tunnel to tunnel, alone with only my thoughts to ward off the terrors the lurked always just out of sight. The few times that I was blessed to have companionship, didn't last long as the evil of the metro always saw fit to take these brave souls away. Leaving me alone, weary, and sad for the loss of such good men.

I knew that my journey would be a lonely one filled with fear as well as terrified excitement. The metro is never a safe place and much of what dwells in its dark places wish only to see you dead. Only your wits, courage, and gun will serve to see you through this hellish landscape of a long forgotten time.

I sit alone in the dark now, trying not to shiver. I listen to the howls as they echo from deeper in the tunnels. I know I have to move but I am so tired..., So cold. They're getting closer, the howling. I ready my rifle and take a firm grip as I was taught so long ago. Is this where my journey ends, after I came so far, is this my time? The flame from my light starts to flicker and die as I prepare myself for the same. After all, it's what they've been waiting for....

This game is terrifying. Not in an everything is creepy sort of way, but in the way that you feel as if your survival is actually at stake. The story is fantastic! The gunplay is satisfying, and the amount of weapon customization options is great. The environments look incredible.

Overall a very enjoyable FPS

A wonderful experience that I would highly recommend to most gamers.
The story is great, the world looks breath-taking and the gameplay feels truly gripping. All in all this is an incredibly atmospheric game that will completely suck you in. I truly felt like I lived in the apocalyptic metro tunnels of Moscow for as long as I played this game and although I was happy to step back into the real world, I thoroughly enjoyed the ride!
If you find this on sale... what are you waiting for!

As a fan of the book and of the 2011 acclaimed title: Metro 2033 , I can only conclude that this is the best graphic remake that remains completeley true to the feel and gameplay of this digital cult classic. 30 hours down on 2 playthroughs and one more needed (for me at least) to complete the "good" side of the story. If post-apocalyptic story driven single player games are your thing go on ahead and grab the duo pack : Metro Redux. GL HF ^^

Much improved version of Metro 2033!

Game supports 21:9 ratio and 1440p resolution!

I replayed parts of the game, just to see how different and good the improvements were compared to the original version.

If you intend to get Metro 2033, you should get this Redux edition!

The game itself is great, but the linux version is totally unplayable because you can't manually set the resolution and for me it doesn't detect the screen size correctly so all I get is a 640x400 window on 4k screen.
Technical support is basically non existing, only told to check file integrity. When I politely told that it doesn't help and asked how to set the resolution manually they stopped answering at all.
