Thoroughly enjoyed this game. Interesting lot of characters, good voice acting, and strong pacing make for a fun, challenging, and at times kinda scary game. Certain stations can be explored and the dialogue and scenery are intriguing and disturbing. This novel screamed make me into a video game and the creators of this one pulled off a dandy. Translating all the political situations that exist in the Metro through monologue can become a bit confusing. There is also an unnecessary amount of gore that doesn't necessarily add to the story it just seems over the top. Overall I love this game and I hope developers keep making them like this.
Metro is a pretty decent game. The environments are convincing, graphics are good. Animations are pretty solid. Enemies are mediocre, especially the enemies, but that could just be a personal opinion about the "monsters," just not my thing.
Controls are pretty good, but it's very obvious that this game was designed to be played on a PC.
Voice acting is terrible. The Russian accents are just terrible and forced.
But, the game is good. I just kinda lost interest. I'd put the controller down and have no desire to pick it for days and only did so because I felt like I owed the game my time or something. And it wasn't bad... I just couldn't get invested into it at all.
If you've got nothing to play, it's definitely work a try. Maybe you'll like it more than I did. But I have other FPS's to play that just have more to offer.
I found the game was really well done, after playing it four times through and getting platinum I still found the game fun. The story is interesting, the characters are ok, a little bland, the gameplay is fun and keeps you thinking, the areas and atmospheres are perfect, the enemys can be a tad annoying, and despite what people are saying, I had not noticed a single glitch and had not had a freezing incident once. Im interested in seeing what DLCs they pop out.
