About This Game

Set in the shattered subway of a post apocalyptic Moscow, Metro 2033 is a story of intensive underground survival where the fate of mankind rests in your hands.

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 your Metro Station-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.

Holy crap I am inlove with this game. A+++++ totally! (Seriously, its that good..)

Why? Well, the atmosphere of the game completely emerges you into the world and plot. The main character (you, aka Artyom) also generates an air of "Who is this punk? Why is he the hero?" because of the somewhat vague explanations as to WHY you are important and HOW you tie into the grand scheme; but, this just drives you forward with curiosity. Makes you want to stick around to unraveled the ever entrancing mystery of the metro. The graphics and sound also help with emerging you, as both work together and really just make it seem dark, depressing, yet somehow pretty. Sets you on edge.

And I mean....Russians in gasmasks man, who doesn’t love that?

This is a great post-apocalyptic game, it gives you control of a guy named Artyom, and like with most games, your character doesn't say anything at all. But that point doesn't matter, it's one of those games that occassionally you jump out of your seat a little, which makes it more intriguing. A good range of weapons, a suspenseful plot, a destroyed and unbreathable enviroment, constantly scouring for air filters and the lack of ammo available makes it a very challenging game. There is some humor involved in this game, but lots and lots of fighting, you will go through your ammo very quickly in this game.

3 points for innovation
3 points for range of weapons and missions
3 points detail and enemies
-1 for annoyance of librarians and lurkers

9/10

A very good post apocalyptic game. Strongly recommended. On the other hand, it has a total linear gameplay which reduces the game quality I think.

I've got no time on this, but that is because it is on my list by family sharing from my other account. I've beaten the game twice now, I assure you. For some reason, I can't think of much to say here, probably because this game is really really solid. It never stands out as amazing or revolutionary, but it has no major flaws. I will say that some of the mechanics are really immersive, though, like chrging the flashlight and watching your step and changing the gas mask filters. I don't have too much else to say, this game is just really solid.

Mixed opinions about this one, the game it self is okay and I like the atmosphere and story. But it's also frustratingly difficult, linear, and at times glitchy and even drops frames. I don't know If I would recommend this game after what I just went through... Boredom and perseverance are the only reason I played through it entirely. It's not a bad game, just not great either.

This game.... nothing beats the atmosphere of this game, the fear and anxiety of wandering the vast and dark metro tunnels of Moscow in 2033. The story is phenomenal, and I STRONGLY recommend getting this game if you like horror shooter games with good stories (maybe this is the only game of its kind).

Got it in september 2012, played it twice by now and I'm thinking of playing it again because of how awesome it is.

Get it.

P.S Metro Last Light is a fantastic follow-up to this game.

It is not really a great game, yet one enough to have some fun. The atmosphere is definitely perfect, but the difficulty being somewhat unbalanced can take away the joy from time to time. Also the cinematics are kind of amateur-ish.

Still, it is a fun ride and it is recommended.

After 6 years I played metro again to get all achievements. There is a 2nd ending and i just discovered it. This 2nd ending gave me a lesson for life, it literally took me to the next stage of awareness (which might be the subliminal goal of 4k). I'm completely mad about it that i didnt see it before.

This game is definitely THE GAME you must play if you want a good authentic atmosphere. Play the Story at least 2 times with the default ending, then you will fully understand the meaning of the good (second) ending. You will reach a new level of awareness.
It's very tricky to get the good ending so use google or whatever.


NOTE: IF YOU DONT UNDERSTAND THE MESSAGE I WANT TO DELIVER YOU, YOU WON'T UNDERSTAND THE MESSAGE OF THE GAME, SO DONT PLAY THIS GAME. YOU PROBABLY ARE A PERSON WHO DOESN'T THINK/CARE MUCH ABOUT THAT, WHATS REALLY GOING ON AROUND THE PLANET. KEEP YOUR EYES CLOSED, DONT USE YOUR BRAIN TO OFTEN AND OBEY YOUR GOVERNMENT. TV IS YOUR GOD.

ARTYUM!

First off, The gunplay and some of the actual guns flat out suck in this game, I don't care how drunk Artyum is or how you excuse it- the mechanics don't ever feel right. But the experience is well worth the hiccups.

Like the Witcher, it's based on a novel, so it arlready has inherent depth. It'll appeal to a majority of sci-fi and horror fans alike. I won't lie, this game is genuinely scary, with a lot of really bizarre and out-of-this world cut scenes. Don't skip them.

The graphics are still freakin' good by today's standards, and the sound and art direciton are top of their class in my opinion.

Keep in mind, ammo is limited and enemies are unforgiving if you let them get close or you inevitably miss with Artyum's shaky drunken hands.

There's a running joke around his part of the Metro that he's a "dead-eye." Uh-huh. >.> These womp rats will be standing right in front of you, and both shells from the trusty double barrel will inexplicably miss. Luckily, Artyum makes up for his lack of aim in his other latent abilities.

Also be sure to steer clear of the irradiated water, narrow ledges, and the green mushrooms that seem to cross genres and multiple platforms unabated.

LOOK OUT BEHIND JOO!

Wow. Just wow. One of the best games I've ever played. This game is a must play for anyone who loves great games. In this game you play as Artyom where in a young age he is forced to seek help for his home after the nuclear fallout killed almost everyone except the people hiding in the Metros. The adventures and different creatures in this game are amazingly creative and there are different ways to counter them, also you can survive different situations on how you like and how you would do in real life (games forces you to survive the way it wants on few sitatuations). This game also shows on how different ideologies still seperate humans on the toughest times.

PROS : No need for pros go try this game its amazing
CONS: DICKMOLES aka the moles which appear in a mission.. so annoying ( thanks to a friend for the name suggestion)

Very nice game, good atmosphere. For me the gameplay was rather long, up to 16 hours, but I have to say that my play style is quite slow. Notice that this game is already 6 years old, so the graphics are sometimes a bit simple and ugly, but for me this was not a problem.

Play this game at night on a big monitor and a good headset. Turn it loud.
You will have a really intense experience, it is thrilling.
But if you are suffering from cardiac insufficiency, stay away or contact your medic first.

Seriously an atmospheric gem, quite challenging, but not frustrating.
And, what I love most, sometimes brain helps.
The story teaches a valuable lesson.

I love it, no regrets.
