I have played Metro series and it is one of my best experience, especially Metro 2033. This game takes you to the post-apocalyptic Moscow ruins, where humanity is no longer exists and the survivals take shelter in underground tunnel metroes. Its great atomosphere and beautifun graphics, persuaded you to complete the game over and over. Metro 2033 Redux is a kind of remaster version of the base game that has graphical improvements. If you have never played this game, now its time.
I was not sure about picking this game up and it's sequel at first, but I was joyous once I did. Story: Metro 2033 is an action/adventure, single-player, fps, with survival horror elements. The game has you playing in a post apocalyptic world with the last remnants of humanity in underground metro stations while the world above is in a nuclear winter and is being inhabited by ferocious creatures. You play as Artyom who has to travel across a wide scope of metro stations and even the world above as he desperately tries to survive from both the monsters from above and humanity itself. Gameplay: Metro 2033 has multiple unique styles of gameplay based on your preferences. You can either go all out with guns blazing blasting away anything in your way, or you can conserve ammo and sneak around with knives for assassination and silenced weaponry to pick off foes at a distance. One major part of the game is finding and using your supplies efficiently. You're able to search through the landscape and find items like ammo, med-kits, and oxygen filters when you venture to the surface. When you do go to the surface you have to use an oxygen mask and have filters for you to be able to breathe, one ingenious mechanic of using the oxygen mask it that when you start to run low on oxygen with a filter you don't get a huge warning or meter telling you how much longer you can use it. Instead it's cued by a quick beeping noise when it's close to being empty, but you then have to listen for Artyom's breathing and whether he gasping for air to indicate when you need to switch filters. The gunplay feels polished and with multiple ammo types and only three weapon slots you have to choose what kind of weapons you want to be carrying around, plus you can mod these weapons with different attachments using military grade bullets which are the currency for the game and can also be used as extra ammo when you run out of normal ammo. Graphics: This game is a remaster of the first game in the Metro franchise taking mechanics from it's sequel Metro: Last Light and implementing them into this game without sacrificing what made the original so good. It has had a graphical overhaul and looks stunning at times. Some sections don't look as nice as the original because of lighting choices, but for the most part it looks better then the original game. One major graphically amazing setting is the ruins of Moscow that you travel up too and it makes this abandoned landscape look gloomy, terrifying, and beautiful all at the same time. Conclusion: Overall Metro 2033 is one of the best games I've played in a while, but is slightly held back by some graphical bugs and a story that doesn't go as deep as I would want it to go. But I highly recommend picking up this game at any price if you're looking for something new.
Good improvement over the original Metro 2033, weapons are better with the ability to place add-ons on them, stealth is way better and glitches have been fixed. The scenes in the game have been improved, new guns are added and models are more detailed. If you want great horror game with great story you will like this game, it's not the type of FPS where you run around shooting everybody, because ammo for good weapons is hard to come by. What I find interesting about the game is how people use bullets as currency, I've never seen that before in a game.
The story of the Metro and Artyom is an exciting thriller, and if you have not played it, now is the time. The story engulfs you, but not with huge explosions and jaw-dropping action. However, it is the atmosphere of this universe. The characters, the feeling of sneaking past mutants, not knowing whats around the next corner, and the visuals (especially on next gen). The first time you exit from the darkness of the Metro into the nuclear wasteland of Moscow the feeling is incredible. The outside is not any safer though as the wasteland is covered with mutants, and you survive by a gas mask to keep safe from the toxic air. Metro has a very special feel to its gameplay as well. The series does an exquisite job of balancing the survival aspect without making you beg for ammo after every encounter. Redux also gives you the option to play the game like a more fast paced FPS like Call of Duty by choosing the games "Spartan Mode" which is good if you do not prefer the survival aspect of the series. Weapon upgrades like adding night vision scopes or making your double barrel shotgun a quad barrel also play a big part in the gameplay. While not unique the upgrades do feel like a nice addition to some already pretty solid gun play. The different enemies and situations Redux throws at you will also allow to take full force of your weapon arsenal, whether its a silenced pistol, an LMG, or flamethrower. Even though Redux brings a lot to offer the Metro can be repetitive sometimes. The game also broke at certain points while playing as I could not advance because of the game script not working or invisible walls but these problems are nothing that can't be fixed with a patch. Metro Redux is almost a perfect game, and right now one of the best games to play on next gen.
STORY: The first thing i would like to make clear is that this isn't a horror game, sure there are some big scary enemies that seem spooky however that shouldn't dissuade you from picking it up, EVERYTHING is killable, you just need the right tools and some quick wit to out think the enemy. linking into that this game is about SURVIVAL, you are simply trying to survive as are the enemies and mutants you encounter.As short of a game as this was there is tons of replayability as the story is great (as expected of Dmititry glukhovsky) and the story will grip your attention the whole way through. GAMEPLAY: In comparison to the original game the Redux is really polished, combat is seamless, works really well, and i cant think of a single time bugs or awkward A.I lead to my death. There are tons of weapons to chose from however its not as simple as picking a gun up and going, you have to stratagise, do you need med packs in case you run into heavy resistance? or would some more ammunition or an upgrade for your gun serve you better? the game will give you choices in regards to armament and tactics, you will only be able to pick one and once you decide on that route that's it, you will probably have to stick to it unless you have a surpless of currency. i really liked this as it meant i had to plan what upgrades and weapons i wanted to get. it's really fun and i recommend getting both this and last light.
