This is one of the few games I have written a review for, and that is because I feel that the developers at 4A Games deserve special recognition for a job not only extremely well done, but done under unusually difficult circumstances.

An article in GamesIndustry International by Jason Rubin, formerly of Naughty Dog, as well as other sources, paints a portrait of a developer with a fraction of the budget and workforce of bigger American or Japanese developers, working under adverse conditions in Kiev, Ukraine.

Nevertheless, they have succeeded in creating a game that not only improves on its precursor in every way, but also in putting out a product of such overall quality and immersive originality that it outshines all but a few big-budget AAA titles. From the pacing that draws you into the world they have crafted, to the atmospheric and moody settings, from the truly intelligent, mature storytelling to the unique gameplay mechanics, this is an absolute gem.

I was a fan of Metro 2033, despite its rough edges. I had high hopes for this game, and they have been more than rewarded. I would encourage anyone who has ever wanted to find more stories for grown-ups, unique settings and mechanics, and engrossing storytelling styles in the vein of Half-Life 2, to play this game.

Here is another one of my initial reviews after playing about 4 hours of this game.

So far it is an upgrade from the first, which is a good thing.
-More of a variety of weapons
-Better stealth elements
-A good amount of gun upgrades
-Various enemy types

This game has a great atmosphere as well. The lighting is nice, the voice acting is very good, and the metro and outdoor area are just as they should look after a post-apocalyptic event.

You do not get bored playing this game at all, the events and things you do are all very different such as the layout of all the areas so far.

Overall i think this game is a good rent, and will keep you busy for a little while. Would not recommend buying, because i do not think there will be much replay value.

Bottom line- Fun survival FPS

I liked the last game but this one takes that and makes it better, so far anyway. I am almost done with it. The graphics are way better and the voice acting is very professional. I really like the setting and the world in which you feel apart of. It is spooky and cold and just great. I really like this game and would recommend it to anyone.
