A great game

mitchear | May 18, 2013 | Review of Metro 2033 PRE

I must say I really liked how they designed the post apocalyptic world. Dismal, yet always a glimmer of hope for a better future.

The graphics are really awesome, and I must say that I prefer them to something like Fallout New Vegas, but I realize that they are not quite in the same category, as Metro has a much more linear story, and Fallout is open world.

I think my favorite parts of this game were the suspense of the attack, the story and always running out of ammo.

My least favorite thing was that I sometime wasn't sure whether the gun on the ground was better than the one in my hand. Perhaps there was a way to distinguish this, but I didn't figure it out. This game definitely kept me on my toes.

I really liked this game. I am hopeful that someone out there will continue with the series.

The graphics are really rich and colourful, and when you first begin exploring, you realize that the map is huge. Now I haven't played Skyrim, so I can't compare it to that, but the game is immense.

Already I have put in 77 hours of game-play and I haven't even seen most of the world yet. I am a bit of a side quest fanatic, so I try to grab and complete every quest I come upon, so perhaps you can finish it a lot sooner if you skip some of the unnecessary ones.

The story is also well crafted and I am looking forward to finding out how my role in the grand scheme of things will affect the outcome.

I did find the combat a bit unbalanced at times. Some places I tore through new enemies like butter and other times I felt woefully underpowered. Overall though I give this game huge props. I really hope it gets a second coming.
