Metro is a 1st person shooter, better suited for a 3rd person shooter. Game is set in dark TUNNELS. Unlike FALLOUT, METRO leans heavy on story telling TO MORE STORY.

PROS: Rich graphics, plenty of bad guys, decent story, controls easy to master, weapons are ok at best.

CONS: Very dark, flash light useless, no real mapping systems, you can get stuck in dark area with no clue what to do next, 1st person limits ability to defend in tight places. No way to skip stuff you have seen before.

This's how bad the tunnels are, you take off down a side track and after wasting 40 shells on various beast. Tunnel curves right back were you started.
This operates more as a rail game. Every now and then you get to explore.

I waited a long time for this game. I thought it would better. Unlike FALLOUT and other such RPGs. Not many choices to be made in METRO.

Mainly, it's a good rental.

I played the first metro and enjoyed it. Not a stellar game (Like Farcry, Halo etc) but a solid FPS. Graphics were good, cool options to have the whole game spoken in Russian (with english subtitles). Biggest problem, the game was too dark. I adjusted my TV to the brightest setting and i did the same with the console, still it was overbearing. This, coupled with the annoying cracking and constant cleaning of your mask mid combat made visuals very un-enjoyable (especially on the hardest difficulty, straight up chaos)
TL;DR Good story line, cool apocalyptic theme and weapons, ruined by low visibility and shoddy combat interface.
