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.

Weapons were relatively easy to find and if you knew how you could get military grade bullets very quickly, but it was easy for you to get lost in some parts of the game sense there's no objective marker for you to follow. Also the combat I very much enjoyed because it reminded me a lot of bio shock combat situations.
Metro's story engrosses you in a world of struggles and hardships and makes you feel the pain of the world around you when you explore the last cities of man beneath Moscow and makes your heart race when you traverse the dangerous tunnels in between the pockets of civilization and the irradiated surface world. Gameplay itself offers Shooting/ stealth segments throughout the game that offer challenge either way you lean
