This has to be one of the worst 360 games I have ever played. I tried to like it. I kept thinking this has to get better. But it did not. I forced myself to play it for 2 hours. The stale dialog, horrible mechanics, and C- graphics just got to me. I will be returning it tomorrow. I am sure glad I rented this. That would have been a big waste of $60.

I'm not going to hash out the story of Metro 2033, save to say it was a great one. U fight humans & some ugly looking beast things w/ not a lot of weapon types & even less ammo. That's the point of the game though, the game wants U 2 ration your ammo & use it wisely. This is not a run & gun, hose down the enemy at all cost w/ all of your ammo game. There's some strategy to it.
The graphics are good, & even better w/ the gas mask on u. Honestly I expected worse.
There's some variance of things to keep u fairly entertained. I think there could have been more, but that's a personal opinion. It would have made the game a lot better w/ more replay value if the designers would have simply added some things to find along the way.
Here is my MAJOR problem w/ Metro 2033: It's EXTREMELY linear. Unless u are scavaging for ammo, gas mask filters or something of the such there's absolutely no need 2 deviate from the compass. This game could have been a hit of 2010 w/ just some simple additions to the game to make it not SO linear. There's absolutely no choices at all in the game 4 the player 2 make along the way save 4 what kind of weapon he/she is going 2 use on the level. We have seen so many non-linear great games in the past few years that I though linear games were a thing of the past. Obviously not, because Metro 2033 is as linear as it gets.
There's no multi-player so once u beat the story you're done with the game. There's no need to go back & re-play the story unless u are REALLY dying 2 see the entire game over again, & I wasn't. It would have been cool 2 add some kind of multi-player 2 add at least a sliver of replay value.
There are some very original pieces to Metro 2033; such as the gas mask usage, weapons, no-hud (for realism), & story. However, those just do not make up for the glaring faults. Replay value is as low as u can go. There's no multi-player. Graphics are good, but nothing 2 write home about.
