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?

Red's, Nazi's, Russians, apocalyptic Moscow, and gas masks. A really fun shooter with a good plot. I ran through this title and it's sequel within days. I'll be revisiting them on their harder difficulty in the near future.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Picked this game during a sale without expecting much of it, and what a surprise !
I think that the most important aspect of this game is the atmosphere. You're embarking for a journey through dark, oppressing metro tunels where the hideous creatures aren't your only enemies. You'd think that going back to the open spaces on the surface would be safer or less scarier, but you're wrong.

What to expect from this game :
- Very linear story (although it doesn't make the game any worse in my opinion)
- Ability to play it "brutal" or "sneaky"
- Playtime is a bit short (my first walkthrough took me about 10 or 11 hours, but I got the 39 hours by finishing it 2 more times to get all the achievements, that's how good I think it is)

Overall, a very solid game! The environment felt very immersive, even though you're railroaded through the game. Sound is used to great effect, especially in gauging the types and location of enemies. The weapons mechanics provided for a good deal of customization and range of styles—each weapon has its own distinct quality and personality and any of them can be used to great effect throughout the course of the game. There is a sense of stealth mechanics; however, it seemed pretty simple and straightforward: stay in the shadows, always crouch, turn off lights, etc... Ammo can be challenging to manage if you're not careful, but being very mindful of exploring the maps should ensure that you'll always have what you need to complete a mission/area.

I would recommend playing this game at its harder difficulties, as that really adds to the immersion; you'll definitely have to rely on teammembers from time to time to assist in finishing off enemies or else risk running out of ammo. And if you're having a hard time with some of the more difficult battles: Your AI partners are invincible and have unlimited ammo. If needed, find a place to hide and let them deal with the enemy waves—there's no penalty for having them do all the dirty work.

My one real complaint is the lack of transparency in how the morale system works, as it influences your ability to achieve the alternate ending. But what you need to do and how are not at all explained throughout the game. I don't mind replaying a game in order to further explore alternate methods of play or endings; however, it makes no sense for me to do so if I have no understanding of what I should do differently in order to get a different result. However, that does not at all take away from the great story that's told when experiencing this game and would definitely recomend it to anyone looking for a great first-person shooter that's full of action, drama, and especially fear and tension!

Verdict: 4/5
