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

I give 100 to this game cuz it really suck u into the game, the atmosphere is well developed, home made weapons give more realistic action in a future like metro 2033. The creatures are not so fantastic, like huge monsters or things like that, but what you fight is well placed in a nuclear disaster. You constant fight against other factions like nazi, where you must use your stealth skills and the game has a little touch of supernatural in the main character
Great game, fantastic atmosphereOnesQuared | May 20, 2013 | See all OnesQuared's reviews »
This game is one of my favourite game out there as it has great atmosphere and game play behind it. The game is focused on making the right decisions, to make the shots count. Not to go guns blazing and shooting the living hell out of everything you see. Some encounters are meant for you to take it slow and steady and looking at the surroundings and making sure you listen to all the things the npcs have to say. Some of them will give you a great advice which will immensely help you on your journey. There are some flaws however, there are glitches but it was rare thing out of the few plays I've done but nothing too serious that would ruin the play through.
A great gamemitchear | May 18, 2013 | See all mitchear's reviews »
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.
Great, but flawednetloadkoko | May 15, 2013 | See all netloadkoko's reviews »
One of the most underrated games this generation. This game is not meant to be a free world, multilayer experience. Instead this game draws the player in with its intriguing story and gloomy atmosphere. If you can look past some of the minor criticism that other people complain about, it is a must buy.

Metro 2033 takes place in a world where humans have been driven underground and have a tough living. Everything about this game backs that up with gameplay. It's dark, you need a gas mask, there's deadly creatures everywhere. You really feel like you're fighting for survival. There's ample meat in the setting and characters. Graphically, it's not quite as good as other FPS games of the time, but that can be overlooked because of what the game does right.
