    I read a of the reviews and was very skeptical. However, I am happy with the game and highly recommend it.

    I go into every game without any pre-conceived notion of what I think they should be. Other reviewers whining about Stalker this… Fallout that… what a crock. Each game should stand on it’s own and this one does. Sure it isn’t perfect. I have only played a couple I thought were, so it’s easy to want to set the bar to high. However, this is an extremely engrossing game. The graphics are awesome. Also, I guess if you are using an old Atari you might have problems running it. I am having no problem playing it on a 3 year old 2.3GHz dual core with 4GB Memory and a GTX280 card. I have the game set a step below the highest settings allowed on at 28″ monitor at 1920×1200. The graphics on this are quite simply, very immersive and extremely well done. You really feel like you are in the subways.

    Next, the complaints that it is linear are tiresome also. Some people like that style of play. Crysis is probably one of the best games ever made. However, it is very linear. Pesonally, I don’t always want a game with a bunch of side missions that add little to the story, if only to make the game longer. Borderlands, Fallout3, Stalker, and games like Oblivion bored me to tears because of this, while others love that style of game. To each their own I say.

    Lastly, everyone likes different things. When I was younger I like the games with big inventories, having to sleep to heal, collecting stuff, building levels and so forth. However, as I’ve gotten older I just want to play a great game. The simple FPS where you arm yourself and go to work kind of games are my choice now. I don’t want to spend a week creating my charater and buidling up levels or over thinking what gun… what ammo, take the side quest, save the princess, where am I on the map… I just want to play. F.E.A.R., Crysis, COD4, FarCry, Half-Life, Bioshock to name a few are just like Metro. Your character is determined, your destination is linear, and there aren’t lots and lots of choices, but it is engrossing and fun with just the right mix while keeping the game moving.

    So, if you are looking for a game that is fun, looks great, and is worth buying… Metro 2033 is a pretty good choice.

    Immersive single-player experience., March 19, 2010

    This is a really really fun single-player game, it’s that simple. I bought my copy on Steam and was able to download/install it without any issues. Here are my machine specs:

    eVGA GTX 260
    4GB RAM
    Windows Vista x64
    Core2Quad Q6600

    I can run the game at 1280×1024 on DX10 “very high” settings and it runs great. It is a BIT strange to not be able to tweak individual settings (you have to select “low, med, high…” etc, but it doesn’t bug me that much.

    If you were a fan of the really cool, atmospheric underground parts in Shadow of Chernobyl, you will love this game. It is a very immersive single-player experience. The character models are top-notch, the textures look great and the lighting and graphical effects are spot-on. The English dialogue is very good. I haven’t finished the story yet, but so far it has been great as well.

    I think you’ll find that a lot of people complaining about this game will whine about it feeling like a console port, or they’ll complain about Steam for some weird reason, but I had zero problems getting this game up and running, and I don’t think my hardware is stellar.

    Bottom line: If the game looks like fun to you and you’re okay with the fact that it’s a somewhat demanding game hardware wise and that there is no multiplayer, you will love this game. And remember, when you see a 1-star review of the game that doesn’t actually talk about the game content itself…take it with a grain of salt :-) .

    Why Metro 2033 is a good gaming investment., July 14, 2010

    I’ve read a ton of reviews prior to purchasing the game, and so my expectations were quite unsure. The game is based off of a book (which I have not read), and you can kind of get that story-book feel in the game. I thought the game story was great. I’ve never seen graphics like this before, and the battle scenes and monsters are exciting. The monsters are great and the action is great. The downfall, in my opinion, is that the game is too linear. Personally, I would have liked to explore each underground town and return to each underground town whenever I wanted. Free exploration of the towns was a must, but the gamer is too restricted. The develops keep pushing you along (and that is unfortunate. It took a lot away from the game). Also, you can’t lean around corners too shoot at enemies or to look for monsters. That is dumb. The AI could have also been better, but I’ve seen worse (Empire Total War for instance).

    Overall, however, the adventure, the story, the thrill of the action, and the amazing graphics and world that has been developed, is well worth $40.00. I’ve already played it twice, once on each skill level, and now I’m going to play it on the hardest.
