Breathtaking atmosphere and world design.
Great voice acting.
Rewards exploration and observation.
Some clever weapons.
Mediocre enemy AI.
Sometimes stifling linearity.
Gunplay feels underwhelming.
Incorporates stale quicktime events.
Occasional slowdown in frantic moments.
Darkness is sometimes overbearing.

Are You Shocked Yet? Metro 2033 is big. There are so many details for you to linger over, so many awe-inspiring sights all falling to bits, so much variety in its locales, that the whole time I played it I was overwhelmed by its people, its scenery,...-

Not quite the ride of your life We liked Metro 2033. We really did. But we wanted to love it. Its dusty, downtrodden, nuked-to-oblivion vision of a post-apocalyptic future is a thing of perverse beauty. At once terrifying and unsettlingly believable,...70

Metro 2033 is a competent survival shooter with some stout hardware requirements. With all of the high-end graphics features enabled, you will need a seriously powerful video card to play at a high resolution. The Radeon HD 5870 can do it right now,...-

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. was an interesting game, because it was so poorly coded. In fact it was nearly unplayable without the community that modded and supported it past release. Even I tried to play it on a modern-age gaming PC and found that the game...69
