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.
Metro 2033 is a gripping, atmospheric first person shooter experience powered by cutting edge technology, featuring full DX10 and NVIDIA PhysX support for high-end gaming PCs, to deliver incredible visuals
Witness the everyday horrors of a broken society living in constant fear
Brave the darkness of the tunnels, where mutants hunt their prey and ghostly spirits lurk
Explore the desolate city-surface, trusting your gas mask and rifle to protect you from a poisoned world and the creatures that roam there
Steel your nerve and prepare to face the terrors that await

A game that I liked a lot at his time gameplay I think it is an important aspect in this game can keep you aware of everything that happens in the game, one thing to remember is that this game is based on a book which is also very interesting and this will be the push that gives the game.
technology This aspect is a bit bland, taking into account that machines are not very good the game is not very fluid, luckily mine is not one of them and is fluent.
graphics The graphics I like quite considering it's the year 2010, but could have been more polished for what the game calls
sound I think this is the strong point of this game, the sound of the guns, Artyom's breathing, especially in this aspect I like
innovation While it is a game that offers great things I put a 9.0 in this regard because I think that there are few such fps, with good story and atmosphere

Having read the book (which i thoroughly enjoyed) I had great expectations regarding this title, I was set to be dissapointed and was almoste certain that the storytelling would fail the story before starting the game up. And granted, if you wanted to relive the book by playing the game, you won't. But you will moste likely be impressed and have a great time!
The visuals are stunning and so is the sound, and you won't need a top-of-the-line unit to enjoy it. I've spent, hours i guess, just looking at the scenery from station to station and so on.
There are however some bugs that can be quite frustrating and the AI is not the greatest in the history of gaming. I'm rather fond of stealthing in games, and it can definately be done in this one as you often can choose your approach quite freely. But there are some issues with the AI which can lead to you being spotted once and never be able to reenter stealth (save for reloads or chapter changes).
If you like shooters set in a dark environment chances are you'll like this one. Play it on a difficulty setting that suits you and you will most likely be scared out of your mind, I know I was. Having died countless of times I refused to lower the difficulty and I really felt it being rewarded.
All in all it's a great game with it's ups and downs. One of my favourites of late.

Metro 2033 offers a great atmosphere, and a rememberal story. The gunplay however has some rough coners, and difficulty spikes. This however should not keep you from playing this awesome experince.

I would like to start by saying that we have not here an 'old game "(quite the contrary), even as the age of a game is something very relative and variable (in addition, this FPS was released in 2010). The game of 4A Games introduces us to a post-apocalyptic world very impressive. The story takes place in Moscow, 20 years after a major nuclear disaster, and the Russians survivors with whom the player meets during gameplay live underground in old tunnels and subway stations. The game has good doses of action and survival horror his side is very strong. Not to mention the fact that we can also meet with various ghosts, during gameplay, some of which can be fatal. Even the figure of a child asking "- Mom, where are you?" Can scare us, in one of the tunnels, as well as a ghost train. We also have several mutant creatures to fight, including those Dark Ones (or Homo Novus), different from their "brothers" bestial. conclusion Metro 2033 is a solid FPS and introduces us to a post-apocalyptic world, oddly enough, extremely tempting. This may represent such a world, for some players, a source of great frustration, precisely because we have little contact with their dangerous surface. The 4A Games could develop a spectacular title, full of suspense and endowed graphics drives. Playing it is an experience, and after you start it, you can not settle down until I finished it.

In Metro 2033 play as Artyom, a young inhabitant of the Exposition, a community in the underground of Moscow in an apocalyptic future where the residents of the Russian capital, now devastated by a mysterious nuclear disaster, they were forced to take refuge in the tunnels of the Metro, the whose stations are now the only safe place. Metro 2033 is a fps different from the others: the weapons are rusty, inaccurate and slow to reload, the bullets are scarce and every encounter be dealt with calmly. Often, you can choose a style stealth, obscuring the light sources and eliminating your enemies with throwing knives or guns silenced. The artificial intelligence of human enemies will give you great deal of trouble, often changing shelter or attacking with grenades. With the mutants will force you instead to a more instinctive, as they hardly manage to hide your presence at their animal instinct. Every fight, despite the slower pace than other securities of the same kind, will give you moments of great tension. The adventure will immerse you in situations that are very different from each other, alternating phases of shooting more classic, with other exploration or other more narrative, enriched with thrilling sequences that closely resemble the first FEAR.
