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.
The camera is erratic, and it was odd that sometimes you were in control of your character and sometimes you weren't.
I did like the gun mechanics and the battles that ensued with people, the A.I. was right on track, but the animals were way to difficult to kill in my opinion, I got frustrated early on in the game dying so much trying to kill the rat like creatures during the first 6 levels, that I couldn't imagine playing through another level, so I sent it back.
I thought the story was slow.
I wont be recommending this game.

Metro 2033 take the post apocalyptic stories and does a great job of blending them into a neat little package. the weaponry is a great concept in that very few people own an AK. the game does keep you on your toes with things and areas in the game where you can instantly die if your not careful. Now unfortunately The game play thou nice take a very bad turn in difficulty for that even on easy you will die in three hits from a mutant and the higher difficulty the less hits you can take. This does take away from the enjoyment of the game and makes it more of a headache then a fun FPS. Overall the game is solid but it is not a buy game no more then a rent and a return
