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.
Metro 2033 is undoubtedly one of the best single player Story driven experiences in the FPS genre. The mixture of emotions and pacing of action is very well paced throughout the entire experience. You are calm and collect one moment fixated on the puzzle behind turning on a control switch and unexplainably tense the next frantically checking left and right, up and down as the enemy stalks from the shadows. The Redux edition of the game has only added to the experience and improved the immersion on all levels. If you like a well crafted story, objective experience with moments of hardcore action and suspense then this is a perfect game to play. This deserves a near perfect score!
Other than my mates - who let me suffocate just because I was too stupid to pack enough filters - the characters in this game are excellent. the voice acting is superb - in both English and Russian. The gameplay and the atmosphere of the game are incredible! Every single gun in the game feels and sounds fantastic, and the shooting is at least functional. the game is simply dripping with atmosphere. it's tense, and you will rarely feel safe in the tunnels. On that note, the game is gorgeous. the tunnels, the surface world - everything looks incredible. The redux improves the optimisation of the game, but there are still some issues on mid-range hardware. be aware of glitches and bugs. Unfortunately, the redux buggers up the excellent 3 gun + knife weapon system of the original. the ranger hardcore mode still works pretty well. unfortunately, this does completely negate the point of having the revolver in the game, as all other guns do what it does better!
